The hosts — Freiburg, last season’ champions of the second Bundesliga, has been inconsistent as of late, alternating wins and winless performances in their last six matches. Freiburg is currently in the ninth position in the German top flight table, four points below the final Europa League qualifying spot. This match is followed by a 2–2 draw with Hamburg away from home at the Imtech Arena last Saturday. Hamburg midfielder Aaron Hunt scored the first goal of the match in the 15th minute before German midfielder Maximilian Philipp knotted the count in the 23rd with a left-footed shot off a pass by Nils Petersen. The hosts grabbed the lead once again with a 57th-minute goal by Michael Gregoritsch, but Freiburg was able to keep the game tied with a 72nd-minute strike by Vincenzo Grifo from the center of the box with the assist again coming from Petersen. As regards injury news: Freiburg are doubtful over Dortmund-loanee Pascal Stenzel and FC Sion loanee Vincent Sierro. Striker Janik Haberer sits this one out to suspension.
Meanwhile, the visitors have also been inconsistent in their last six games with 3 victories, 2 draws, and 1 defeat. Borussia is third in the Bundesliga table at the moment, eight points behind second-running squad RB Leipzig and 13 points below current league leaders Bayern Munich.
