Borussia Monchengladbach vs Freiburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia re-joined the contest for the Europa League football next term by clinching four points in last two league outings. The Foals showed a decent performance on Saturday holding the second-placed Schalke 04 to a 1-1 draw away at VELTINS-Arena.
Gladbach sit ninth at the moment, but just two points shy of Eintracht Frankfurt in seventh, meaning they still have plenty to play for in remaining two games. Dieter Hecking and his men will be clear favourites to back-up the recent rise in form with another victory on Saturday when they host relegation strugglers Freiburg at BORUSSIA-PARK.
The visitors managed to move three points off Wolfsburg who sit at the relegation playoffs spot thanks to a 3-2 victory over the rock-bottomed and already relegated Koln last weekend. The victory helped the team end the horrific five-loss streak, but backing it up against the inform Foals will no doubts be a huge challenge.
