Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Roland Sallai – The forward has 7 goals and 1 assist in the Bundesliga this season and will look to link up with Petersen to disrupt the Bielefeld defence. He has been in fine form of late, scoring in each of his last 4 games for both club and country.

Nils Petersen – The German international has scored 7 goals in 9 starts for Freiburg in the Bundesliga this season. He has an impressive shot conversion rate at 64% with 7 of his 11 shots on target finding the back of the net. He has been struggling for minutes of late but will look to seal his spot in the side with a strong performance.

Differential Pick

Ritsu Doan – With 6 goal contributions (4 goals and 2 assists), the Japanese international has been prolific for Arminia Bielefeld this season. He has created 38 chances as well with 53% of his shots ending up on target. Doan has succeeded in 47 dribbles, completing 48% of them, while whipping in an accurate, 27 crosses at a 23% success rate. On loan from PSV Eindhoven, Doan last scored in their impressive 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen where he scored the opening goal.

Defenders – Lienhart, Schlotterbeck, Schmid
Midfielders – Sallai (C), Santamaria, Maier, Okugawa

Likely Winner:

SC Freiburg should be the favourites to win this tie but Arminia Bielefeld’s recent win against a side like Bayern Leverkusen should give them the confidence to go into the BIE vs FRB Today Match Prediction with a lot of confidence. Freiburg has scored 40 goals in their 27 games but also conceded 41, while Arminia Bielefeld has found goals hard to come by with just 21 goals in the league this season. The home side will desperately need this win to escape the relegation zone and will look to throw everything Freiburg’s way when the two sides meet.
