Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund
2017/18 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9th September 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion, Freiburg.
The title contenders Borussia Dortmund will face SC Freiburg at Schwarzwald Stadion on Saturday afternoon. Despite their tight schedule, BVB are expected to grab the full prize and nothing less.
Following the goalless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in the first round, SC Freiburg were decimated at Red Bull Arena in the second round. Despite having the 0-1 lead at the half-time, RB Leipzig turned the game around with four goals in the second half.
The home side will battle with inefficiency in the forthcoming season. They lost several key players during the transfer window who are replaced with the players of unequal quality, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Freiburg face the relegation this season.
Peter Bosz’s side are the only team along with Hannover that kept a clean sheet after the opening two Bundesliga rounds. BVB are sitting atop the league with maximal six points following the victories over VfL Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin.
Dortmund are facing Tottenham Hotspur in the first round of UEFA Champions League. The match in London could be the deciding as Dortmund are in one of the most difficult groups.
Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
Dortmund have one of the most impressive head-to-head records in Bundesliga against Freiburg SC. They won the last 12 competitive matches. BVB even won the last six outings at Schwarzwald Stadion while keeping a clean sheet in the last four visits.
Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Dortmund’s squad is a bit thin as they plan to compete in the domestic league, Champions League and DFB Pokal. It’s likely that Bosz will rotate ahead of the pivotal encounter in London, but even with the mixed squad Freiburg should bow to Borussia, especially when taking the recent meetings into an account.
