Borussia Dortmund v Freiburg Team News

Though still unbeaten in the league under Peter Stoger, Borussia Dortmund have started 2018 in disappointing fashion. They’ve netted just one goal in their last two outings, held to a goalless draw by Wolfsburg here and holding Hertha to a 1-1 draw last week.

Borussia Dortmund are surprisingly bad home side this season. They were unbeatable for a few straight seasons before this one. This season they already lost three and drew twice in their nine home matches. Now they are as low as 6th in the standings with even securing Champions League football looking difficult; let alone winning the league which Bayern already seem to have won.

Unlike the hosts, Freiburg head into 2018 with some decent momentum, unbeaten in seven in the Bundesliga (W4 D3) – their best run in five years. Despite sitting in the bottom part of the Bundesliga table, SC Freiburg are currently one of the sides with best forms. They are unbeaten in seven consecutive matches, winning four games and drawing three times.

However, the BVB have a fantastic overall record against SC Freiburg, winning 23 times, drawing 9 matches and losing just 3 games against them. They are currently on an amazing series of 13 straight unbeaten matches against them, winning in 12 of those games.

Players to watch: With seven clean sheets so far this season (most in the league), Dortmund keeper Roman Burki has his eyes set on number eight.

Freiburg top scorer Nils Petersen ended the first half of the BL campaign in very positive manner with six goals in three games, but has failed to find the net in the last two. Can he rediscover his excellent pre-winter-break scoring form?

Teams' Potential Starting Lineups:

Borussia Dortmund (4-3-3): Burki; Piszczek, Sokratis (c), Toprak, Toljan; Kagawa, Weigl, Gotze; Pulisic, Yarmolenko, Sancho.

Freiburg (3-4-2-1): Gikiewicz; Soyuncu, Gulde, Kempf; Stenzel, Koch, Abrashi, Gunter; Haberer, Holer; Petersen (c).

Injured or Suspended Players:

Borussia Dortmund: Raphael Guerreiro, Marco Reus, Sebastian Rode, Maximilian Philipp, Marcel Schmelzer, Erik Durm.

Freiburg: Nicolas Hofler, Florian Niederlechner, Mike Frantz.

Conclusion and Predictions:

Having yet to taste a Bundesliga victory in this calendar year, Borussia Dortmund will be aiming to put an end to the recent winless run when Freiburg visit them Saturday. But it is easier said than done given the current struggle of Dortmund and the renewed confidence Freiburg have after beating Leipzig.

But given the impressive record of Dortmund against the Freiburg and also due to superior quality overall in the team, we predict the Dortmund side will finally taste victory after two consecutive drawn games but won't be able to keep the onrushing Freiburg at bay.
