Game of the Day: Freiburg vs Leverkusen Review

Freiburg currently sit in 8th in the table with 38 points, although it’s a long shot they do still have an outside chance of claiming the Europa League Qualification spot, being just 4 points behind Wolfsburg on 42

Since the restart they have had 2 draws & a loss from the 3 games, conceding 5 and scoring 4

Leverkusen on the other hand sit 5 in the table level on points with Gladbach, and we’re on an 8 game unbeaten streak until Wolfsburg took them apart last game week.

Having scores 8 goals since the restart, and conceding 6 in that time

Both teams have something to play for, and both will be wanting to not drop points in the hunt for European football.

So who are the key players we should be looking out for

Kai Havertz

The 20 year old, German international, sensation, has hit the ground running since the restart, scoring 4 goals in 3 games so far,

Though he only posted a score of 19 against Wolfsburg, we have to assume that was just a blip for Leverkusen, who will be looking to right some wrongs from that game

Previous to this he posted 225 & 225, and has gone on to win MB as well

Pre March Price – £6.76 (Thurs 9am)

Post Match Price – £6.68 (-8p)

Moussa Diaby

The exciting French winger has who began the restart well, registering 2 assists in the 1st game back.

Having scored 4 goals and 5 assists this season in 22 games, 14 of which he has started, he has seemingly taken Leon Baileys starting spot, and attracted some interest from Europe’s elite

His PB score though are lacking, but an exciting player to watch posting scores of 125, 73, 33 so far

Pre March Price – £2.39p (Thurs 9am)

Post Match Price – £2.35p (-4p)

Kerem Demirbay

Having played 20 games this season, Demirbay has 5 assists & 1 goal!

Since the restart he’s posted scores of 240, 170, & 50 with the first 2 being good enough for a bronze day win!

He does have 2 assists & a goal since the restart, and will no doubt be looking to continue that form

Pre March Price – £1.74p (Thurs 9am)

Post Match Price – £1.73p (-1p)

Alexander Schwolow

This is an interesting one, Freiburg current shot stopper, aged 27, the German international has played the previous 3 games posting scores of 141, 67, 171

I imagine against Leverkusen he could have a bit of work to do, with that in mind at 25p a share, if he picks up top Def for the day that’s 2p back per share!

I wouldn’t advise going mad, but at that price he could be worth a shot, including IPD which would last until roughly the 2nd to last game of the season!

Pre March Price – £0.25p (Thurs 9am)

Post Match Price – £0.25p (No Movement)

Vincenzo Grifo

The 27 Italian has posted a 110, 99, & his latest score of 155 since the restart, while getting himself 2 assists and 1 goal 3 games

Another player who given it being a bronze match day could take top spot in Midfield

Pre March Price – £0.75p (Thurs 9am)

Post Match Price – £0.74p (-1p)

Of course with both teams there will be plenty of players to watch out for over the season, for me personally I hold

• Havertz – 15 Shares

Weiser – 84 Shares

• Schwolow – 25 Shares

Let’s get into the game and the key talking points:

Where do we start with the 1st half, it end 0-0

The biggest chance coming from Freiburg with Höler put through on goal after a lovely through balls, he bends it past the post,

For Beyer Leverkusen Leon Bailey has been on the ball a few time taking a man on, however thats come to nothing with his end product being very hit and miss

Amiri has looked good on the other Flank, and Wirtz looks a good talent at just 17 years old, unfortunately he is yet to be IPO’d

54 mins into the game and it’s that man of course… Kai Havertz, after a 1-2 with Bailey, Havertz pokes the ball past Schwolow from a tight angle

Havertz goes down injured, and is subsequently substituted, doesn’t look as bad as it first seemed, from what I have seen his spread dropped below £5 on the index, crazy to think people decided at that moment to potentially IS for such low amounts, have seen some matches bids well below £6

As expected Leverkusen win a tight a fair 1-0 with the Kai Havertz goal early in the 2nd half,

Players of the game:

Personally for me the real stand out player of the game was Nadiem Amiri, positive on the ball looking to get forward, after Leon Bailey taking the first couple of corners, he stepped up to take the rest,

Hitting a PB score of 170 for the Top Midfielder Spot and only being beaten to star man by Jonathan Tah

Amiri’s top mid performance included 90 mins played, having 93 touches, 57 passes (89.1% acc.), 8 attempted crosses, & 2 key passes

& Speaking of Jonathon Tah, he took home the Top DEF spot with a score of 182, taking a clean sheet and win,

5 clearances, 1 interception, 4/6 Ariel duels won, 111 touches & 92.2% pass accuracy from 94

Of course Havertz got the only goal of the game in the 54th minute and was subbed shortly after this, he finished the game with a PB of 150

Finally Leon Bailey, he scores Top FWD with a PB of 125, personally from watching the game I find him very hit and miss when it comes to end product, but he did provide the only assist of the game for Havertz

& with 85 mins played managed 58 touches, 78.4% passing accuracy, & 2 successful dribble attempts from 3

On the hit and miss point, he also had 11 attempted crosses, 1 of which was successful, and lost possession 23 times in the game

None the less he earns 2p per share for the evening, and no doubt if he could improve his confidence he would be a much better player with his end product

That’s all for today’s blog and I’ll be back reviewing another game tomorrow

In the meantime stay safe, stay home, stay positive, and have a great day
