    We have several fixtures to look forward to in the German Bundesliga on the 25th of January including the meeting between SC Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt.

    The game will be played at the Europa Park Stadium and the hosts begin the weekend in 4th place on 30 points while the visitors are in 2nd place on the same number of points.

    SC Freiburg resumed their fixtures following the winter break with a chance to close the gap on the leaders but instead they fell to a heavy 6-0 defeat at Wolfsburg.

    The hosts scored 3 goals in each half of the match and it was a hugely disappointing way for SC Freiburg to return to action in the Bundesliga.

    That was their second defeat in 3 Bundesliga games having also lost 3-1 at RB Leipzig prior to the World Cup. They did pick up a victory at home in the final game before the World Cup, beating Union Berlin 4-1, which was a good result.

    Trends show SC Freiburg have won 4 of their last 6 Bundesliga fixtures, with the wins coming over Werder Bremen, 1. FC Köln, and Union Berlin. They also beat Schalke 04 away 2-0.

    SC Freiburg have not been beaten in their last 10 straight home clashes in all competitions and have won all 4 of their most recent home league matches. SC Freiburg have scored at least one goal in 17 of their last 18 home Bundesliga fixtures.

    Eintracht Frankfurt make the trip to Europa Park Stadium on the back of a good 3-0 home win over Schalke 04. Eintracht Frankfurt opened the scoring in the 21st minute and secured the points in the final stages of the game with 2 goals in the final 6 minutes.

    That result means Eintracht Frankfurt are undefeated in their last 4 games in the Bundesliga. They have beat Hoffenheim and Schalke 04 at home plus Augsburg away.

    Eintracht Frankfurt also picked up a point in a 1-1 draw at Mainz. Eintracht Frankfurt have scored 1 or more goals in their last 11 matches in all competitions.

    Away form in the Bundesliga shows Eintracht Frankfurt are undefeated in 7 of their last 8 away league games. They have won 4 of their last 6 Bundesliga matches on the road but have conceded at least 1 goal in their last 10 away league fixtures.

    Team news and SC Freiburg are without midfielder Roland Sallai who has a muscle injury. Vincenzo Grifo is a doubt because of illness.

    Eintracht Frankfurt have four players on the treatment table with Eric Ebimbe, Luca Pellegrini, Tuta, and Marcel Wenig unavailable for this game.

    SC Freiburg will want to bounce back from their heavy defeat at Wolfsburg and should find the back of the net. However, they come up against a good Eintracht Frankfurt team who could score the goals to win this match, meaning both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals scored in total.
