Freiburg and Dortmund clash at the Europa Park Stadion on Saturday afternoon in a potentially massive Bundesliga encounter.Freiburg form guide
The team from the Black Forest’s good start to the Bundesliga campaign came to an end last time out, as Christian Streich’s team suffered a 5-0 hammering at Stuttgart. The loss came on the back of two straight wins over Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen in their opening two league matches of the season.
The game against Stuttgart continued a high-scoring trend in Bundesliga games, as three of their last four matches in the German top flight have seen over 2.5 goals.
Freiburg has a solid recent home record in the Bundesliga, having won three of their previous four matches in the league. A key to that recent home form in the German top-flight has been their strong defence, as they have conceded just once in the previous four home games.Dortmund form guide
Edin Terzic’s team is unbeaten in their opening three matches in the new Bundesliga campaign. However, BVB has now recorded back-to-back draws against Bochum and last time out Heidenheim.
The draws in the league may be underwhelming, but Dortmund are still unbeaten in their last 11 outings in the Bundesliga. One of the key factors to their unbeaten run in the German top-flight is their attacking prowess, as they have scored at least two goals in five of their last seven league outings.
Dortmund have won just one of their last six Bundesliga matches. However, on the flip side, four of their previous six away games in the German top-flight have ended in draws. Dortmund have been strong in attack on their travels of late, having scored at least two goals in eight of their last 11 matches.What am I backing?
Freiburg have a solid recent home record, while Dortmund are tough to defeat. I can see this being an even game, which is why I am backing the draw.
