Leverkusen will be looking for a win that will take them another step closer to their first ever Bundesliga title when they play Freiburg away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Freiburg were humiliated in midweek after an interesting last few weeks that included a draw against Bayern Munich, a win over Bochum in the league and a win against West Ham in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16. The Breisgau Brazilians travelled to London for the second leg of the Europa League round of 16 and were handed a 0:5 defeat.

Bayer Leverkusen meanwhile trailed by two goals in their own Europa League round of 16 second leg, just as it was the case in the first leg, but two late goals from Patrick Schick secured Die Werkself a place in the quarter-finals. Xavi Alonso's side return to action this weekend in the Bundesliga where they are ten points above record champions Bayern Munich. Should they avoid defeat, they would be unbeaten in 42 games in all competitions.

Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips: Both teams to score

Against West Ham United last time out, Freiburg failed to score despite putting 10 shots on goal but that was a rare occurrence. The visitors have scored at least twice in five of their last seven games, so I expect them to score at least one goal here.

Leverkusen boast two clean sheets from their last two Bundesliga outings, but they always struggle defensively against Freiburg. Die Werkself failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last five meetings with Freiburg and both teams scored in all five encounters.

Freiburg team news

SC Freiburg head coach Christian Streich will be without at least three players this weekend due to injury.

These include Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (cruciate ligament), Kenneth Schmidt (muscle) and Philipp Lienhart (groin). Max Rosenfelder is also questionable due to a lack of fitness.

Vincenzo Grifo is the club's top scorer this season with nine goals and should start in the final third, while Lukas Kübler is pushing for a start in defense.
