Our football match prediction:
As expected, Freiburg were hammered by Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena in their last league match. Christian Streich’s men dropped to the relegation zone in the Bundesliga standings and, no doubt, they are desperate to get back on course. Freiburg obviously struggle on the travels, but they are tough to beat at home and it has to be noted that they are undefeated at their Schwarzwald-Stadion this season. Hertha, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Schalke at their Olympiastadion at the weekend, but it has to be noted that midfielder Genki Haraguchi was sent off on the stroke of half-time. The capital club are on a three-game winless run on the road and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Freiburg. In their last meeting at Schwarzwald-Stadion Freiburg recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Hertha and the history is likely to repeat itself.
