SC Freiburg is hosting Borussia Dortmund at Schwarzwald-Stadion in round 2 of the German Bundesliga. Freiburg is undefeated in their last 3 games, but they have scored only 1 goal in their last 2 games. Borussia was on a 3-game winning streak, they have won their season opener, but they lost in the German Super Cup.

Freiburg was solid in the preseason, they have lost only 1 friendly game, and they have won their DFB Pokal match. In Bundesliga last week, Freiburg was playing against Arminia, and they were the better team with 56% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. This was a game where we saw a ton of fouls, a lot of yellow cards, but no goals. This game has ended in a 0-0 draw. Freiburg is yet to score a goal this season, while Petersen is injured, and he will miss this game. Freiburg ended last season in 10th place, and they fell short of the Conference League, but they will have the opportunity this season.

Borussia was outstanding in their season opener against Eintracht, and they have won that match 5-2, but in their first trophy battle against Bayern earlier this week, Borussia wasn’t as good. Borussia has had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Nothing was working for Borussia in this match, they were sloppy on the defensive end, and their offense just wasn’t working. Borussia has lost this match 1-3, and they ended up losing the first trophy of the season. in Bundesliga, Haaland is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 2 goals, while Reyna, Hazard, and Reus added 1 goal each. Haaland also has 2 assists. Brandt, Guerreiro, Hummels, Meunier, Morey, Schmelzer, and Zagadou are all injured, and they will most likely miss this game. I’m certain everyone in Borussia is eager to get back on the winning track after losing to Bayern at home earlier this week, but they have a lot of injuries, and they need to proceed with caution because Freiburg is a dangerous team.

Freiburg hasn’t lost any of their last 5 home games, but Borussia is on a 5-game winning streak on the road. It’s not a secret Borussia is the better team here, and I’m not sure Freiburg has the defense to contain Haaland. I’m taking Borussia and the goals in this one.
