Leipzig is sitting in third place in the Bundesliga standings with 50 points to join Borussia Dortmund (51 points) and Bayern Munich (55 points) as the only teams in the league with at least 50 points. Leipzig has scored 62 goals this season while allowing just 26 to sit at +36 in goal differential.
Leipzig has gone a nearly perfect 4-2-0 over their last six matches prior to the suspension while also going a impressive 5-4-1 SU and 6-4 ATS over their last 10 matches overall. Leipzig smacked mighty Tottenham senseless in their last match before the break, taking out the Spurs 3-0 on march 10. Timo Werner has scored a team-high 21 goals for Leipzig this season while Nkunku has added 13 assists. Konate, Orban, Kampl, and Ampadu are injured while Upamecano is suspended because of yellow cards.

Kubler, Abrashi, Kwon, Haberer, and Gunter are injured and will sit this match out.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
While SC Freiburg clearly isn’t awful as they sit just above the middle of the pack, they also aren’t in the same category of elite title contenders as RB Leipzig. Not only that, but Leipzig has gone a perfect 4-0 in home matches against Freiburg and I expect them to be completely focused in this affair as they look to get their post suspension play off on the right foot. Leipzig is the pick to take care of business at home in this affair, although I’m expecting Freiburg to put up a real fight.
