On May 14, Leverkusen will host Freiburg at the BayArena, for a game whose importance will depend on the result of the Bielefeld vs Leipzig match. This is because Leverkusen is fixed in 2nd place, while Freiburg would be a win away from reaching the top 4 and guaranteeing themselves a spot in the Champions League, that’s if Leipzig somehow loses their encounter.
Freiburg will put all their efforts into this match because even if the chances of Bielefeld winning over Leipzig are very slim, there is nothing else to play for. Streich’s side took a huge loss against Union Berlin in their last game. Had they won their last match, Freiburg would be in a much different position as they are only 2 points behind Leipzig in the standings.
If the stars align for Freiburg on May 14, then we might see them qualify for the Champions League for the first time in the history of the club. It must be frustrating for the team to know that they were just one win away from securing a top-4 finish, but that’s a thing of the past and now they must focus on their match against Leverkusen.
What makes a top-4 finish so unlikely for Freiburg is not only Leipzig being the clear favorite in their match against Bielefeld. But Leverkusen has been performing really well over the last couple of weeks. They are currently on a 3-game win streak and they have been getting better and better as the season progresses.
Leverkusen won’t slow down against Freiburg, because they know that if they slip up, Freiburg might just have the chance to take them down. The last time these two teams faced up was back in December, and even though it was a long time ago, Freiburg won the game with a 1-goal lead. In the end, this is Leverkusen’s match to lose, and if they play like they have been playing recently, they will take the victory home and crush Freiburg’s chances for a Champions League qualification.
