Borussia M’gladbach is hosting SC Freiburg at Borussia-Park in round 27 in the German Bundesliga.
After 7 losses in a row, and after being winless in their last 9 games, Borussia M’gladbach has finally won a game. It was against Schalke before the international break on the road. M’gladbach was the better team in that game with 71% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Borussia has won this match 0-3, but it should have been a lot more since Schalke is the worst team in Bundesliga. Even with this win, Borussia is still far away from the Europa League spot, and they are now in 10th place with 36 points, 44 scored goals, and 40 conceded goals. Stindl is the leading goalscorer for M’gladbach with 11 goals, while Hofmann added 5 goals and 11 assists. Musel and Hofmann are injured, while Bensebaini is suspended because of the yellow cards. Overall, Borussia M’gladbach is not a bad team, especially in the attacking end, but this season just didn’t go their way, and I would say, them playing in the Champions League and Bundesliga has had a negative impact on their game this season.
Freiburg is doing a solid job this season, and they have been constantly improving over the last few years. Freiburg is in 8th place in the standings with 37 points, and they are only 6 points away from the Europa League spot. Freiburg has been solid in the attacking end with 39 scored goals, but their defense hasn’t been so good with 39 conceded goals. Freiburg has been hot and cold as of late, but they have won their last game in Bundesliga. Freiburg was hosting Augsburg in that game, and they have had 56% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. After a rough first half, Freiburg was focused in the second half, and they were able to score 2 goals. The final result of this match was 2-0 in favor of Freiburg. Petersen and Grifo have each scored 7 goals for Freiburg so far this season, while Grifo also added 6 assists. Flekken is the only injured player for Freiburg, while Hofler is suspended because of the yellow cards. Freiburg is a solid team, and they will always give it their all on the pitch, but honestly, I don’t think they will be enough for Freiburg to reach the Europa League spot because the competition is strong in Bundesliga this season.
The trends are pretty even in this matchup, but M’gladbach hasn’t lost to Freiburg in their last 10 home games. Freiburg is in better form here, and I think they could score a goal here, but M’gladbach is the deeper team with more quality, and I see them winning this match. We could see goals on both sides here, and I will take it for the plus money.
