Borussia Dortmund vs Freiburg SC
Date: Friday, 23rd September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK
Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund.
There were no surprised when Borussia Dortmund travelled to the Wolfsburg for the mid-week Bundesliga fixture. They put 5 goals past their opponents in a one-sided contest to grab their third win of the season. The men in yellow and black look in fine form in front of goal as they have now scored 17 goals in the space of three matches. Dortmund will start the match sitting third in the table, 3 points gap from title competitors Bayern Munich.
Freiburg worked hard in their narrow 1-0 win over a struggling Hamburg on Tuesday, registering their second win of the season. Both their wins have come at home, which they lost in each of their two away games. Christian Streich will be keeping his side’s ambitions realistic in their return back to Bundesliga and will be aiming at nothing less than a safe spot away from the relegation spot.

Borussia Dortmund vs Freiburg: Prediction
Dortmund are firing from all cylinders at the moment despite losing some key players through injury. They also have a formidable head-to-head record against their Friday’s opponent Freiburg. One main point to note here is that Dortmund have an important Champions League clash against Real Madrid next week. So a number of key players could be rested here.
Freiburg had a decent start to the season, but they also have ample injury and fitness issues. Moreover they were less convincing in each of their two away games this season. And coming with a poor record at the Signal Iduna Park, they will be in for another hammering on Friday.
