Preview

Freiburg host Augsburg in a mid-table clash in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Freiburg harbored ambitions of finishing in a Europa League spot, but have not been in the best of form recently. That means they are now ninth in the Bundesliga, and four points behind Union Berlin, who are seventh.

Freiburg have lost three of their last four games in the league and have only picked up four points in their last five matches.

In their last match, Freiburg lost 1-0 to Mainz, in a game where Robin Quaison scored the only goal in the 84th minute.

Augsburg are four spots below Freiburg in the Bundesliga standings, with 29 points from 25 matches so far, five points less than Sunday's opponent.

In their last game, they enjoyed a terrific win against a more-fancied opponent when they beat Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1 at home.

Ruben Vargas, Marco Richter and Andre Hahn scored goals in that game for Augsburg, with Florian Neuhaus scoring a consolation for Gladbach.

Freiburg have won 10 and lost seven of their last 25 meetings against Augsburg.

The reverse fixture between the two sides earlier this season ended in a 1-1 draw.

Vincenzo Grifo gave Freiburg the lead midway through the second half, but Vargas equalized in the 80th minute.

Freiburg vs Augsburg Prediction

We are predicting that this game will end in a draw. Neither team really have much momentum on their side, and both are reasonably strong defensively.

With that in mind, we expect a low-scoring stalemate.

Prediction: Freiburg 1-1 Augsburg
