Our prediction for this match:
Bayer Leverkusen will be aiming to kick off their pre-season in style when they take on Freiburg at Gernot Langes Stadion. The BayArena outfit will represent German in the Europa League in the upcoming season, and, as a result, the club chiefs managed to keep hold of star attacker Patrick Schick, who impressed at the EURO 2020 finals. Leon Bailey, on the other hand, is on international duty with Jamaica.
Freiburg did well to beat Saarbrucken in their first warm-up game, with the team sharing the spoils with Vaduz at the weekend. Christian Streich will use this match to test as many players as possible, but regardless of which footballers will be deployed in the starting XI, a high-scoring affair is on the cards. Both teams will be with guards down in Friday’s friendly, and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals.
