This might be the biggest match on the Bundesliga slate, with both clubs looking to secure the league’s final Europa League berth.
Wolfsburg is currently in the driver’s seat in that race, sitting in sixth place on the table with 45 points. However, Freiburg is just four points back in eighth and looks to grab all three points in this match. Freiburg really can’t afford to drop any points moving forward, due to the fact Hoffenheim is on 43 points and better positioned to supplant Wolfsburg in the standings.
As for the matchup on the pitch, it has really been a mixed bag for both sides leading up to this showdown, with Wolfsburg playing better the second half of the season. The hosts earned a 1-0 victory against Werder Bremen in their latest outing, making them unbeaten in nine of their last 11 league matches. Offensively, Wolfsburg has been solid the entire campaign and sits seventh in expected goals (47.83) in the league.

On the opposite side, Freiburg picked up a 1-0 shutout against Borussia M. Gladbach last weekend and the much-needed three points. It was just the third win for Freiburg in its last 11 games, so there had to be some optimism during training leading up to this match. Goals have been relatively hard to come by Freiburg, which finds itself in 13th place expected goals (38.93) this season.
I really like Wolfsburg in this match, largely in part due to its better form and distinct home-field edge against a Freiburg side that is winless in 11 of its last 12 road Bundesliga contests. Sprinkle a little on the total going under the number as well.
