Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Schwarzwald-Stadion will host Wednesday’s Bundesliga game between Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt. Despite producing a fine display in their last league match, Freiburg were eventually beaten by Bayern Munchen at Allianz Arena. Christian Streich’s troops have been impressive at home ground of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive at their Schwarzwald-Stadion.
Experienced attacker Nils Petersen, who found the net in the defeat to Bayern Munchen, is pushing for a start, while midfielder Baptiste Santamaria is unlikely to feature against Eintracht after suffering an injury at the weekend. Die Adler, on the other hand, defeated Schalke 3-1 on Luka Jovic’s return. The Serbia international obviously enjoys wearing the red and black shirt, and given Eintracht’s attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting in the German top flight the two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Highlighted Player (Nils Petersen):
Son to a football coach, Andreas, the Freiburg striker Nils Petersen is a physical forward best known for his clinical finishing. A former Bayern Munich striker never got a chance to prove his worth with Bundesliga giants and had to take a long road to prominence which included loan spells at Werder Bremen and Freiburg, before penning a permanent deal with Die Breisaguer in 2015.
Petersen’s impressive exploits during the 2017/18 season helped him get into Germany’s provisional FIFA World Cup 2018 squad although his father Andreas would argue it was his personal influence that helped Joachim Loew write his son’s name in the 23-man list. Namely, Andres Piteresen spotted the Germany manager on a beach in January and decided to ask him about his son’s chances of making it into Germany World Cup squad.
Piteresen was rewarded with his senior Germany cap in an Austria friendly but unfortunately for his father missed out on the final squad for the tournament in Russia.
