Fresh from a 2-0 away win over Slavia Praha in the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund travel to the Schwarzwald-Stadion, looking to extend their unbeaten Bundesliga (BL) run against Freiburg to 17 games (W14, D2).
The hosts come into this match on a three-game unbeaten run (W2, D1), although both of those triumphs have arrived away from home. The ‘Breisgau-Brasilianer’ have picked up a little bit of everything at home this term (W1, D1, L1), with two of those matches producing over 2.5 goals. In fact, Christian Streich’s men have won just two of their last seven BL home games (W2, D3, L2), keeping a clean sheet only once across that period. Such a home form is unlikely to improve here, as Freiburg suffered seven defeats in their last eight BL H2Hs with Dortmund at this venue (D1, L7). What’s more, they’ve struggled to find the net in six of their previous league H2Hs here, allowing 2+ match goals four times in the process.
Meanwhile, the visitors have played out back-to-back BL draws ahead of this fixture, with both of those games ending with the same 2-2 scoreline. As a result, they are now unbeaten in three consecutive league games (W1, D2). However, the BVB have endured mixed fortunes when on the road this term (W1, D1, L1), with each of those trips featuring over 3.5 total goals. A 2-2 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt aside, both of Dortmund’s away results (win/loss) have ended with the identical 3-1 scoreline. Still, only Bayern Munich (19) have scored more league goals that the BVB (17) to date, with Lucien Favre’s men netting two or more goals per league fixture five times already.
