Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Wolfsburg are running down a blind alley at the moment. The Wolves have recorded no more than one win in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign and situation at Volkswagen Arena is alarming ahead of the trip to Freiburg. New coach Valerien Ismael is eager to record his first win as Wolfsburg coach, but beating Freiburg on the road is easier said than done. Christian Streich’s troops aim to keep their 100% record at home intact and they will be looking to build on a 3-1 win at Werder Bremen when they welcome Wolfsburg at their Schwarzwald-Stadion. Freiburg are regarded as one of the best hosts in Bundesliga and we predict that they will pick up all three points from Saturday’s match against the out-of-sorts Wolves. You should bear in mind that Christian Streich’s team defeated the likes of Borussia M’gladbach, Hamburg, Eintracht Frankfurt and Augsburg at their Schwarzwald-Stadion earlier this term.
