Borussia Monchengladbach got their Champions League qualifying hopes back on track last weekend with an emphatic 4-1 victory at home to Union Berlin and will follow up with an equally smooth showing at Freiburg.
Monchengladbach sit fourth in the Bundesliga but only goal difference separates them from Bayer Leverkusen in fifth position and with seven matches left this is a game they can’t afford to lose points in.
Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea ‘s striking partnership, which combined to score 20 of their 57 league goals, was the catalyst for Monchengladbach’s success this season and prolific pairing was both aimed at Union Berlin.
It was the 11th time Monchengladbach had scored three or more from 29 league games and that includes in victory in three of their last four trips away.
Marco Rose ‘s men defeated Freiburg 4-2 on home soil earlier in the season and this looks like the ideal chance for the dynamic visitors to repeat the trick with their opponents faltering. It’s expected the Foals would do well here.
Freiburg may be flying high in eighth in the Bundesliga but they have won only one of their last eight league matches and are in danger of undoing all their hardwork in the early season.
Freiburg has failed to win in four attempts since football returned to Germany, firing blanks in home defeats against relegation-threatened Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen, while at Leipzig and Frankfurt it was dominated in score draws.
Freiburg is the lowest-scorer in the top half of the Bundesliga with just 38 goals in 29 games (an average of 1.31 per match) and leading marksman Nils Petersen, who took nine of them, only scored once in his last 11 outings.
