Betting tips Freiburg vs RB Leipzig

Both sides have endured some heartache in recent weeks with RB eliminated at the semi-final stage of the Europa League while Freiburg lost their last 2 league matches, throwing away the chance to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their history.

RB, who finished the season with a disappointing draw at Arminia, ended their campaign in 4th spot, 3 points and 2 places better off than a Freiburg side that come into this fixture following back to back losses against Union and Leverkusen. Just 4 points from those matches would have been enough to secure an unlikely CL spot for next season.

Both sides have never won this trophy although this is RB´s third appearance in the final in four years and a first major honour is theirs for the taking with the East German side big favourites at just 1.44 odds to lift the trophy. Freiburg are available at 2.62 odds at the time of writing.

Recent meetings between these sides have been tight with the last two fixtures finishing as 1:1 draws. 5 of the last 7 meetings saw BTTS and while RB are rightful favourites, Freiburg have proven their quality over the campaign and are expected to make this a really competitive affair. 

Goals are usually to be expected in German football - as displayed with all 9 of last weekend´s Bundesliga matches seeing BTTS while 7 of the last 10 DFB Pokal finals have also seen that outcome including 4 of the last 5.

With both sides looking to make history, we expect thai one to be closer than the bookies' odds might suggest and with that being said, another low-scoring draw could be the order of the day.

Ultimately, RB have the quality to prevail but we expect Freiburg to make this a competitive final and we expect BTTS with extra time potentially required to provide a winner.
