Reason For Hoffenheim vs Freiburg Betting Tips

Alfred Schreuder’s managerial reign at Hoffenheim got off to the worst possible start as his side conceded what turned out to be the only goal of the game on the opening weekend against Eintracht Frankfurt. An otherwise promising performance, which included a ruled out goal from Dennis Geiger, offered plenty of reason for optimism, though.

Schreuder’s men went on to score three in a dramatic 3-2 win over Werder Bremen in the match that followed before holding in-form Bayer Leverkusen to a draw just before the international break. Schreuder will no doubt also be happy to see new forward Ihlas Bebou already off the mark, especially with last season’s top scorer Andrej Kramaric (17) still ruled out.

Freiburg are two points better off than neighbours Hoffenheim though, having beaten Mainz 3-0 and promoted Paderborn 3-1 over their first two Bundesliga matches of 2019/20. Christian Streich’s men did, however, come unstuck at the third hurdle against Cologne in their last outing, losing 2-1 after taking a first-half lead.

It was the first time this season that Gian-Luca Waldschmidt failed to find the net – he scored in both league games and the DFB Pokal first round tie before that. He should be feeling confident again on Sunday though, having received his first call-up to the Germany national team for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Netherlands and Northern Ireland.

Hoffenheim go into the game as favourites and we feel that there are plenty of stats that make them worth backing. For a start, Freiburg aren’t a particularly good travelling side – in fact, they won just 2 of their 17 away days last season (W2 D5 L10) – while Hoffenheim have won four of their last six at home (W4 L2). Notably, Freiburg hold an aggregate record of 5-13 on goals over their last five away too.

Hoffenheim have had some troubles scoring in their opening few games, but those came in two tricky away games to sides that finished in the top seven in 18/19. And though Freiburg have conceded just three goals so far this season – the joint second-fewest in the division – the ‘expected goals conceded’ model suggests that they should have conceded five – a league-high difference. Freiburg have been riding their luck and it’s only a matter of time before order is restored.

Hoffenheim have a strong record against them too – they’ve only lost one of their last 11 meetings with Freiburg, winning both games last season (4-2 and 3-1) – and all things considered, we like them to get the result again on Sunday. Freiburg are in good scoring form though, and with both teams scoring in each of the last 12 meetings between them, we see them getting on the scoresheet too. Our prediction: 2-1 Hoffenheim.

Stats

Hoffenheim vs Freiburg Stats

Powered by
  • Hoffenheim have only lost one of their last 11 meetings with Freiburg (W4, D6): a 3-2 loss away on 1st October 2017.
  • Hoffenheim haven’t drawn against another team in the Bundesliga more often than against Freiburg (9 – also 9 vs Gladbach, Dortmund and Bremen).
  • Since the start of 2012/13, both sides have scored in each of the 12 Bundesliga meetings between the two teams. Overall, there have been 49 goals in 12 games (average of 4.1 per game).
  • Hoffenheim failed to score for the second time this season in their 0-0 draw at Leverkusen – they only failed to score twice in the whole of 2018/19. They last went without a goal in two of their first three Bundesliga games in 2009/10.
  • After a 3-2 home win over Bremen, Hoffenheim will be looking to win their first two Bundesliga home games of a season for only the third time. They last managed to do so in 2017/18 with victories over Bremen (1-0) and Bayern (2-0).
  • Freiburg missed out on a record start to a Bundesliga season after conceding an injury-time goal to lose 2-1 at home to Köln. They have never had more than six points to their name after three BL games (also in 1994/95 and 2010/11).
  • Including last season, Freiburg have scored 13 goals in their last five competitive matches (2.6 on average). In comparison, they only scored seven times in the ten games between MD24 and MD33 in 2018/19.
  • Freiburg have conceded just three goals so far this season, whilst the ‘expected goals conceded’ model suggests that they should have conceded 5.06 – a league high differential of -2.06.
  • SC Freiburg’s 3-1 win at Paderborn on MD2 ended their nine-game winless run on the road (D3, L6). They could win back to back away matches in the competition for the first time since November 2013.
  • Vincenzo Grifo signed for Freiburg for €7 million from Hoffenheim on ‘Deadline Day‘, but a clause agreed between the two sides will prevent him facing his old club. He played 20 times for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga (1 goal).
