Prediction and betting tips
Freiburg were much stronger than their rivals in the last H2H fixture against Nantes. Also, they have a streak of 10 matches without losses and have won seven of them. Christian Streich’s men were stronger than Hertha in the most recent match, but were not lucky to finish it in their favor.
Nantes have lost five of the last six matches and have bagged only three goals in these six matches. In the last game against Rennes, Nantes were much weaker and did not finish any out of their eight attempts to score successfully. I believe that their current form will not be enough to stop Freiburg in this match.
