With Borussia Mochengladbach flying high in third in the league and Freiburg the long time strugglers in the league this season this one should be an easy pick right? Not so much. Freiburg have actually come into form over the last two months and have lost only one of their last five games in the Bundesliga. With an impressive 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday confidence will be flowing through the side, especially new striker Nils Peterson who notched a hat trick on his debut in 44 minutes of football. Manager Streich has to take the credit for his double swith at halftime as his team trailed 1-0. The second half was a completely different performance and Freiburg got out of the bottom three for the first time since the opening weeks of the season.
Mochengladbach struggled to a 1-0 win over Stuttgart at the weekend although this is at home and Mochengladbach have been tremendous at home all season only losing once there and holding Bayern Munich to a 0-0. Kruse and Herrmann are key men for Mochengladbach when on from Kruse can be lethal and he will hoping to kickstart his season as he has only notched two goals in his last fifteen appearances. This is one of those games that to me should be entertaining to watch. Freiburg were excellent at the weekend and the addition of Peterson from Werder Bremen could be an inspired one.
I'm going to take both teams to score here as Mochengladbach are very strong at home but they do concede goals there in general. Conceding at least one in seven of nine home games. Frieberg themselves have scored in three of their last four away games the only blank coming in Munich against Bayern. This will be closer than the bookmakers think as well.
