The home side have had a largely solid league campaign and currently occupy the continental places. They suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Mainz in their last league outing but bounced back from that with a 2-1 victory over Red Star Belgrade in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday to secure passage to the last 16 of the tournament.
Leipzig sit fifth in the league table with 20 points from 10 games and will be looking to add to that tally when they play on Sunday.
Freiburg, meanwhile, have struggled to impress in their domestic assignments this season despite their strong performances on the continental stage. They played out a 3-3 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach last time out in the Bundesliga before thrashing TSC 5-0 in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.
The visitors sit eighth in the Bundesliga standings with 14 points picked up so far. They will be looking to shake off their latest league results and return to winning ways in the competition this weekend.
