Freiburg – Borussia Dortmund
Freiburg welcomes Borussia Dortmund at the Schwarzwald-Stadion in a match from the seventh round of the Bundesliga. Stay with us, because we are going to take a look.
Freiburg are moving surprisingly well since the start of the season. At this moment they are third in the standings with 13 points won, being just one point behind the leader Bayern Munich. We would lie to you if we tell you that we expected such a great start from this team in the league. In six games played so far, Freiburg lost only once against Koln.
In the previous round of the league Freiburg visited Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Merkur Spiel-Arena, achieving a 2-1 win. Rouwen Hennings opened the score for the hosts, but Christian Streich’s boys turned the game around with goals from Jonathan Schmid and Gian Luca Waldschmidt. The visitors even missed a penalty kick. Lucas Holer tried to score from the spot, but Zack Steffen saved his shot.
Borussia Dortmund are looking for points right now. In their last two games in the Bundesliga Dortmund made two draws. This is the reason why right now they are 8th in the standings with 11 points won, being on three points behind the leader and main title rival Bayern.
Last week Lucien Favre’s team hosted Werder Bremen at the Signal Iduna Park, but missed a good chance to record a win. The game ended with a 2-2 draw, which was surely not what Dortmund were seeking. Mario Gotze and Marco Reus scored for the hosts, but Rashica and Friedl put the ball in the net for the visitors.
Against Freiburg Borussia Dortmund will have to deal with tiredness as well. During the week they had a game in the Champions League against Slavia Praha, so maybe Lucien Favre will make some rotations for the next Bundesliga match. We shall wait and see if he’s going to make it right.
