Borussia M’gladbach is hosting SC Freiburg at Borussia-Park in round 14 of the German Bundesliga. Borussia is in decent form right now, they are playing well on both ends, but they have a few important injuries. Freiburg is far away from their form at the start of the season, but they are still a good team, and they are still playing pretty solid soccer.

Borussia has lost only 1 of their last 5 games, and that was against Koln on the road last weekend. Borussia has had 51% of ball possession in that game, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. This was a terrible game for Borussia M’gladbach, on both ends, and they ended up losing this game 4-1. Borussia is now in 12th place in the standings with 18 points, they have scored 18 goals, but they have also conceded 18 goals. Whenever Borussia gets on the nice streak, they mess it up in the next few games and they are back to start. Overall, I think Borussia M’gladbach is a solid team with some great players, but they lack consistency this season, and unless they wake up soon, they will spend another season playing only in Bundesliga.

For a long time in Bundesliga, Freiburg was undefeated this season, but they have now lost 3 of their last 4 games, and they have dropped all the way to 6th place. In their last 2 games in Bundesliga, Freiburg has 2 losses and they have conceded 4 goals, while they scored only 1 goal. Against Bochum on the road last week, Freiburg was the better team with 59% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Freiburg got ahead in the 51st minute, but just 3 minutes later, Bochum has tied the score. In the 82nd minute, Freiburg has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this game 2-1. Holer, Grifo, Jeong, and Lienhart are the leading goalscorers for Freiburg with 3 goals each, while Grifo also added 3 assists. Freiburg needs to bounce back, and they will because they are good enough to end the season in the top 4, but they need to find a way to score a bit more goals.

I think these two teams are of similar quality, but Freiburg has been a bit more consistent so far this season. I think this will be an interesting game, we will see some goals, but I think Freiburg will win this game.
