FC Koln will face Freiburg in week 30 of the 2022/2023 German League which can be watched via live streaming on ESPN on Saturday, April 29, 2023, ET. This game will be a battle between teams with different ambitions at the end of this season.
Köln are currently in 11th place with 35 points from 29 matches, almost confirming their status in the top division for next season. Friedhelm Funkel’s side have seen a change since the international break, turning their previous five-game winless streak into a four-match unbeaten run since then. Their last clash saw them beat Hoffenheim in a convincing 3-1 victory.
On the other hand, Freiburg is in fourth place with 53 points from 29 matches, trying to win a ticket to the Champions League next season. Christian Streich’s side have been in consistent form this season, losing just one of their last ten league matches. Their last match saw them win 4-0 over Schalke 04 at their home ground.
The previous encounter between the two teams ended in a 2-0 win for Freiburg at their home ground back in November. Jeong Woo-Yeong and Michael Gregoritsch scored for the home team. Freiburg have also been victorious in their last two competitive away matches against Köln.
Köln will be hoping to end their four-match winless home run and provide joy to their supporters. They will rely on the trio of Florian Kainz, Ellyes Skhiri and Steffen Tigges to score goals and create opportunities. They will also be looking to keep up their pretty solid defense at home, conceding only 15 goals so far.
Freiburg will be fighting for victory before facing two important matches against RB Leipzig, both in the DFB-Pokal and in the Bundesliga. They will rely on Vincenzo Grifo who has scored 13 goals this season, including the game’s opening six goals. They will also rely on Michael Gregoritsch who performed brilliantly in the previous meeting.
Whatever happens here, there’s no doubt that there will be some exciting action, as only one of the last 18 meetings has ended in a draw with 12 of these having produced over 2.5 goals on the day. Köln and Freiburg will battle it out for the three points and achieve their respective goals.
