Our prediction for this Europa League match:
David faces Goliath at Europa-Park Stadion as Freiburg and TSC go head to head in round 4 of the Europa League group stages. Christian Streich’s men aim to overtake West Ham in first place and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side. As Freiburg looked sharp in front of goal in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Borussia M’gladbach at the weekend, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the Bundesliga outfit.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be left winger Vincenzo Grifo, who scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 win over TSC two weeks ago, while all Gunter, Philipp, Kyereh, Rosenfelder, and Sallai have been struggling with injuries of late. TSC, on the other hand, obviously struggle at the back and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Freiburg’s party in Germany. Zarko Lazetic has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Baden-Wurttemberg.
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.
