Union Berlin welcome Freiburg

Union Berlin welcome Freiburg in the capital in a game from the 8th round of the German Bundesliga. We will give you some insights about this clash in our free football betting tips for the weekend. Let us begin.

Nobody expected that Union Berlin will have it easy during their first season in the Bundesliga. Right now the newcomers are 16th in the league standings with only four points won so far, which makes us think that they will have a difficult fight for survival. Union shockingly won against Borussia Dortmund earlier in the season, but this remains their only win so far.

The small club from the capital is having a difficult time lately, being in a run of four consecutive losses. In the previous round, just before the international break, Union visited Wolfsburg and conceded only one goal, but it was enough for the Wolves to win. Wout Weghorst scored the only goal in the game in the 69th minute.

Meanwhile Freiburg are doing much better. Right now they are 4th in the standings with 14 points won, which probably surprises a lot of people. Freiburg have lost just one game so far and in their last four games they have two wins and two draws.

Before the break Christian Streich’s team hosted Borussia Dortmund and won a point after a 2-2 draw. Gian Luca Waldschmidt scored for the hosts, while Dortmund’s Manuel Akanji scored himself an own goal.

Freiburg’s manager Christian Streich really deserves compliments for the work he’s doing with the team at the moment. If he manages to qualify Freiburg for the European competition, this would be a great success.

That’s our free football betting tips for the weekend for the Bundesliga clash between Union Berlin and Freiburg on Saturday. The visitors are the clear favourite here, but let’s see what Union can do.
