BORUSSIA Dortmund were punished for not making best of their chances in a shock 2-0 defeat to Augsburg last week and they could the could be on the course witness a tougher challenge in this weekend’s home tie with Freiburg.
Freiburg are on a good run of form in the Bundesliga, with their only defeat in their last seven games coming against Bayern Munich. Freiburg started the season with a win over Stuttgart and a draw with Wolfsburg and their more conservative approach could help them avoid defeat against Dortmund.
Lucien Favre’s men suffered crushing home defeats to Hoffenheim (4-0) and Mainz (2-0) at the end of last season and the loss to Augsburg emphasized that there are defensive issues which need resolving.
Freiburg may not be the sharpest going forwards but if they can nick a goal, they have the defensive resolve to see the game out and we advise backing them in the double chance market.
Their 2-2 draw with Dortmund in the reverse fixture last term was one of four of their matches to finish with that score line.
PREDICTION: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
