Freiburg vs RB Leipzig preview, betting tips and prediction: Away win for Leipzig expected
RB Leipzig and over 2.5 goals @ 11/5 with Ladbrokes
RB Leipzig are back, baby. But are they here to stay? If not then I guess they what can’t be disputed is that they definitely did come back, even if it was for one night only. The Red Bull plaything battered Schalke last weekend with a brilliant performance full of vigour and energy. It was worlds away from the indifferent form that saw crash out of the Champions League group stage last term. Liverpool-bound Naby Keita was among the goals and Leipzig marked his brilliant performance with a press release confirming that he wouldn’t be moving in January.

Although Liverpool will be disappointed not to avail of his services six months earlier than agreed, they’ll delight at seeing their future star hit the highs of last season. Leipzig will have to do without him this weekend as a yellow card picked up in that win triggered a suspension.
Bayern Munich have run away with the Bundesliga and are destined to win a sixth consecutive title. But second place is still up for grabs and Leipzig currently hold that fort after toppling a flawed Schalke. Only three points separate Leipzig and sixth-placed Monchengladbach.
GRAB THIS FROM CORAL
Freiburg have been showing a bit of spirit of late and a decent run of form is distancing them from the relegation places. History is against them, however, when it comes to recent clashes with Leipzig. To be blunt, Freiburg have been the victims of regular hammerings from Leipzig. Each of their last three meetings has seen Leipzig put four past Freiburg and it’s hard to see past another win for the away side here.
