Gekas injury boosts chances of a Freiburg victory

| 06.02.2011

Freiburg are currently enjoying the longest unbeaten sequence in the whole of the Bundesliga and they can extend this run to seven games with a home victory over Frankfurt.

Match Odds

It is 11/10 that Freiburg land the spoils and not only are they undoubtedly the form team of the duo, but they can also call on the services of their star striker.

The clash was to pit the top two scorers in the Bundesliga this season against each other, but although Papiss Demba Cisse is fit for the hosts, injury is set to rule out Frankfurt’s Theofanis Gekas.

Gekas is expected to miss out because of a muscular problem and this could make it difficult for Frankfurt to end their run of failing to score since the restart of the Bundesliga season following the winter break.

Frankfurt’s lack of goals has also left them without a point in this period and they are 12/5 in the Bundesliga betting to secure victory.

The pair have never shared the points in the Bundesliga, but it is 12/5 that they finally play out a draw at the 18th attempt.

Correct Scoreline

With Frankfurt’s scoring troubles already mentioned and the potential absence of Gekas a massive loss, there is every chance that a low-scoring match could ensue.

Freiburg have found the scoring of goals far less difficult and they are the only Bundesliga team to have found the target at least once in all of their home games this season.

However, the fact that Freiburg have collected nine of their ten victories by a single-goal margin increases the likelihood that a 1-0 victory may materialise.

Freiburg’s betting odds are 7/1 to beat Frankfurt 1-0 and this result would mean that Frankfurt have lost three consecutive games without scoring for the first time since 2005.

A £25 stake on Freiburg beating Frankfurt 2-1 would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
