Freiburg vs West Ham United

There will be fireworks when Freiburg and West Ham United take on each other at Europa-Park Stadion in an eagerly-awaited Europa League game. Christian Streich’s men are eager to put an end to their six-game winless run in the Bundesliga, but they will have a big fish to fry against the Premier League outfit. Anyhow, their display in a 2-2 draw with star-studded Bayern Munich is fuelling fans with optimism ahead of Thursday’s clash.

Philipp Lienhart is a major doubt, while all Lukas Kubler, Kenneth Schmidt, Max Rosenfelder, and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh remain in the recovery room. The Hammers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Brentford and Everton. David Moyes’ men have been scoring goals for fun of late and given Freiburg’s attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Michail Antonio is pushing for a start, while Maxwel Cornet should be the only absentee in the away team.

Outright Betting

Despite losing twice to West Ham already this season, Freiburg are 8/5 favourites on Boylesports.

West Ham are marginal 9/5 outsiders to pick up a first-leg lead while a Europa-Park Stadion stalemate can be backed at a best price of 5/2 by wjcasino .

Betting Angles

This looks like a tricky fixture to tackle from a 1×2 perspective so I’m going to put together a Bet Builder and couple up Freiburg to score and Edson Álvarez to commit a foul at 4/5 .

Whilst West Ham seem to be heading in the right direction again, their Achilles heel remains their poor defensive record.

David Moyes’ men have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last nine matches across all competitions so they could struggle to keep their German hosts at bay.

Freiburg breached the Hammers’ defence when they visited the Black Forest back in October, and after netting twice against Bayern Munich last time out, they can certainly land at least one blow against the Londoners on Thursday night.

Recent Meetings

These two teams met each other twice in the group stage of the competition.

West Ham picked up two wins in these matches, including a 2-1 success in October last year on German soil.

Freiburg vs West Ham Prediction

Neither team have done well defensively since the turn of the year. They have both improved their attacking displays in the most recent matches, though. The Over 2.5 goals & Both Teams To Score pick thus landed in all but one of Freiburg’s last seven outings across competitions. The run includes successive home draws to Eintracht Frankfurt (3-3) and Bayern Munich (2-2). We’ve seen ten goals in total across West Ham’s last two Premier League outings. Both Teams To Score is the way to go at the 1.70 odds.

Jarrod Bowen produced one of the best performances of his career two weeks ago when he fired a hat-trick in a 4-2 home win over Brentford. His attacking threat has increased drastically since the return of Lucas Paqueta to the starting XI. The Brazilian midfielder seems fully recovered from his injury and we expect him to feature from the start on Thursday night. Knowing how poor Freiburg have been defensively of late, we have to try with Jarrod Bowen to score anytime at the sky-high 3.50 odds.
