As previously mentioned, both teams came away with three points on the opening day of this season’s Europa League campaign, with just one goal difference keeping West Ham in top spot. Both sides have had decent runs so far this season and are doing well in their domestic leagues. However, Freiburg currently have four players out due to injuries and suspensions, making them a bit light in midfield options. This could work in West Ham’s favour, who will also need to cope under the pressure of a European away day atmosphere.

Statistics for Freiburg vs West Ham

Freiburg have shown resilience in defence in their last two games by keeping a clean sheet in both, winning one and drawing one in the process. West Ham have also won three of their last four in all competitions, with their only loss coming against Premier League giants Liverpool at Anfield. It remains to be seen how far last year’s Conference League Champions can progress in the competition, but with all things considered, this is looking to be a tough test for Freiburg on the night.
