Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten record remained intact on Thursday when they hit two goals in added on time to beat Qarabag in the Europa League, and the Bundesliga table toppers have a 63.6% chance of winning again on their return to domestic action according to the bookies.

Freiburg, who were dumped out of the UEL in midweek, have won only twice in their last eight home assignments in the Bundesliga, which is why we’ve put them as underdogs in our football tips for the game.

Freiburg vs Bayern Leverkusen prediction
Patrik Schick scored twice for Leverkusen in midweek – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Patrik Schick

Leverkusen centre-forward Patrik Schick is in the midst of a dry spell in the Bundesliga, though the 26-year-old restored some confidence in midweek when he buried a late brace against Qarabag in the Europa League.

Can Schick maintain his form?

Patrik Schick hasn’t scored a Bundesliga goal since December 20th, though the Czech Republic international has been a pit-part player in Xabi Alonso’s side this term. Schick has been given more opportunities in the absence of the injured Victor Boniface, and he will be eager to shine on Sunday.
