Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg German Bundesliga Date: 14 May 2022, Saturday Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Freiburg missed a big chance to stay ahead of RB Leipzig in the battle for the top-four finish ahead of the final day fixtures last weekend when they surprisingly fell1 -4 at home to Union Berlin.
Christian Streich’s men did not find a way to handle the pressure on the occasion as they gave up way too many chances to Union Berlin who had enough quality to exploit the rivals’ defensive holes on the occasion.
Freiburg are now two points behind RB Leipzig and they need to beat Bayer Leverkusen as well as RB Leipzig to lose away at Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday to regain the fourth place and earn the right to represent their country in the UEFA Champions League next season.
On the other side, we have Bayer Leverkusen who have done their job last weekend by netting four goals in a crazy six-goal thriller against Hoffenheim at PreZero Arena.
Die Werkself completed a comeback with a strong second half performance from Patrick Schick to took his tally to 24 goals this season with a brace in Sinsheim.
Bayer Leverkusen are now four points ahead of RB Leipzig in fourth place and they will definitely finish third and thus play in the elite continental competition next season.
We would thus not be surprised to see head coach Gerardo Seoane giving a chance to some of his youth players to show their skills at the highest level on the final day of the 2021/22 Bundesliga season.
