Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
The hosts’ are steadily building on their impressive start to the season. And have picked up the win twice in their last three Bundesliga games. Their previous trip on the road saw them take down Dusseldorf with a 2-1 scorecard prior to which they shared the spoils against Augsburg.
Despite the admirable form that they are on, it needs saying that their opponents so far were teams that were either newly promoted or those which finished outside the top five last time around. Additionally, it is also worth mentioning that Freiburg’s only defeat in the new season so far was the 2-1 loss against Koln. That too in the comforts of their home.
On the other hand, Dortmund have not been at the losing end in any of their previous three clashes. And have tasted success in half of their last six matchups. The away side have been faring well in their recent visits to this venue as well and have walked away with the bragging rights intact in seven of their last eight trips here.
Taking into account that Lucien Favre’s men will also be coming into the clash this week on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Slavia Prague back in the Champions League, Dortmund are more than just likely to be too hot to handle, even for the in-form Freiburg at home.
Nevertheless, Freiburg are sure to make Dortmund sweat profusely. The home team have found the back of the net in each of their clashes here so far and have racked up five goals to their tally. Their counterparts have been clinical in front of goal as well and have scored two goals or more in two of their previous three outings.
Considering that three out of their last four head to head matchups here have also been high scoring affairs, by all means, count on over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards in this one.
