SC Freiburg will kick off its Bundesliga 2022-23 campaign this weekend, with a trip to Bavaria to take on hosts Augsburg.
Freiburg finished the previous season with 55 points, missing out on a top 4 finish by just 3 points. Nevertheless, they managed to book a spot in the Europa League group stages by the virtue of finishing 6th. This is the best finish that the club has achieved since making a return to the top flight in the 2016-17 season.
They also managed to reach the finals of the DFB Pokal, losing narrowly to Leipzig in a penalty shootout. Coach Christian Streich, who has completed a decade with the club now, will be hoping for an even better performance this time around. The new signings for the club in this season include Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, Ritsu Doan, Matthias Ginter, and Michael Gregoritsch.
With these signings, Streich has considerably strengthened his midfield, giving his team more agility. Nico Schlotterbeck has left the club for Borussia Dortmund. Freiburg is unbeaten in the club friendlies since the DFB Pokal finals and also won its latest game 2-1 against FCK in the first round of the latest season of DFB Pokal.
Augsburg finished 14th in the previous season, much to the disappointment of fans. The management has let go of the old coach, Markus Weinzierl, and brought in Enrico Maaßen, who was with the reserve team of Borussia Dortmund. The new signings for the club include Ermedin Demirovic, Arnie Maier, Elvis Rexhbecaj, and Maximilian Bauer. The new faces have helped Augsburg perform well in the pre-season friendlies, and helped them score a 4-0 win over Lohne in the first round of DFB Pokal. However, despite its current form, most football betting sites do not foresee any great difference in the team’s performance.
Match prediction and football betting tips for F. C. Augsburg vs SC Freiburg Bundesliga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the WWK Arena, Augsburg, on 6th August 2022.
Both the teams are likely to have quite a few absentees in this match. For the hosts, Sarenren Bazee, Tobias Strobl, Niklas Dorsch, and Lasse Gunther will be missing this game, while Reece Oxford and Ruben Vargas are doubtful.
For the visitors, Lucas Holer and Kevin Schade will be unavailable, while Lucas Kubler remains doubtful.
Despite the induction of new faces, we reckon that Augsburg will find it difficult to beat the visitors.
Bet on an SC Freiburg win.
6 of the last 8 encounters between the two clubs have seen both teams score. Also, in each of the last 6 matches played at the WWK Arena between both the clubs, a BTTAS bet has won, and we predict a similar outcome on Saturday too.
Both the matches played between the teams in the last season saw a score higher than 2.5. Freiburg has been a prolific scorer off late, scored 58 goals in the last season, and was only behind the top 4 in that matter. We are therefore likely to see a goal fest in Augsburg on Saturday.
