Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a thrilling (3-0) win over second-placed Leipzig Hamburger moved away from the relegation zone. Die Rothosen are three points clear of bottom three in the Bundesliga standings and they will be looking to extend their winning run in the national championship to three games when they welcome Freiburg at their Volksparkstadion. Hamburger defeated star-studded Bayer Leverkusen in their last home game and seeing that Christian Streich’s men are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Freiburg recorded a hard-fought (2-1) victory over Koln at the weekend, but seeing that they have already suffered six defeats on the road this season, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Hamburger’s party at Volksparkstadion. USA international Bobby Wood, who has netted seven goals in all competitions so far this season, is widely expected to lead the attack for the hosts against Freiburg.
