Freiburg Double Chance
Freiburg didn’t give a good account of themselves in last week’s first leg against Juventus (0-1), though the Germans are a different animal at the Europa-Park Stadion, and we’re tipping them to shine a little brighter in the return fixture. Christian Streich’s troops are unbeaten in 15 straight games in all competitions on home turf and Freiburg’s ability to dig out results in front of their passionate fans could set them up for another positive result on Thursday.
Both Teams to Score
Juventus mustered 20 attempts in the first leg last week and when you consider that Freiburg have conceded goals in each of their last five home assignments, it makes sense to expect Juve to register again in the second leg. However, the Breisgau-Brasilianer have rattled the net in an impressive 100% of their 16 fixtures at home this term, and they have the firepower to maintain that perfect strike rate here. With those factors aligned, our second Freiburg vs Juventus prediction advises a stake on both teams to score.
