Team News

  • With Mensur Mujdza injured, Vegar Hedenstad will get his chance at right-back.
  • In defensive midfield, Johannes Flum could replace Cedric Makiadi again.
  • Jan Rosenthal returns from suspension to start instead od Karim Guédé up front.
  • Sebastian Boenisch and Hajime Hosogai compete for a spot at left-back.
  • In central midfield, manager Hyypiä won't make any changes.
  • Gonzalo Castro will most likely keep his spot on the right flank, with Sidney Sam having to wait for his chance to return.

Prediction

  • Freiburg are 6th in the table and one of the huge surprises this season. Manager Streich has found a system and pressing game that is hard to beat for any team in the league.
  • Leverkusen are still second in the league, behind Bayern. They are very consistent and target man Stefan Kießling is in great form.
  • Expect this to be a close game from the outset. Leverkusen have more quality, but Freiburg are hard to beat at home.
