Three points from a possible 21 has seen them fall to second bottom and there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel with Sevilla up next.
Unai Emery's men should really have won at Real Sociedad at the weekend instead of drawing and there are a few signs that the side is beginning to click.
They are offered at 4/9 (1.44) to win the game and given their superb home record coupled with Freiburg's awful form this looks like a home banker.
The Germans for their part are offered at 6/1 (7.00) but few will be rushing to invest in them. Freiburg have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of the nine competitive games they have played this season, while Sevilla have netted in each of their last seven matches.
The Andalusians without doubt have goals in them and one would expect them at the very least to score twice at home. They are offered at 21/20 (2.05) to win with a -1 handicap and that bet looks tempting enough.
It has paid out in four of Sevilla's last five European games and against a struggling Freiburg side it has a great chance of doing so once more.
