Greuther Furth have struggled since their promotion to the Bundesliga, and are one of two teams that are yet to win this season.
With just one draw in nine games, they look destined to drop back to the 2. Bundesliga, unless they are able to pick up a few positive results soon and build some momentum.
Freiburg will relish the clash against Furth. Christian Streich’s side are currently third in the league table, and have been this season’s surprise package so far.
Despite changing their stadium this season, they have managed to keep their impressive home form and have shown some of the bigger sides how to play disciplined football.

Freiburg vs Greuther Furth Prediction
Defensively, Freiburg are the best team in the division. They have conceded just six goals this season, which is why they are so high up the table.
Furth, on the other hand, have scored just six times, and are the second lowest scorers in the league. They are likely to struggle against the well-drilled unit that Freiburg are, so we expect a home win.
