Freiburg is not losing steam although it is somehow expected that they won’t be able to keep the good rhythm for long. They lost only to Cologne at home and draw one match, interestingly at home with Augsburg. They won four times, out of which three times away and they played the best against Hoffenheim away where they by 3-0. In the previous round Freiburg won in Dusseldorf 2-1 after turnaround and the only new name in the line-up was Abrashi who replaced injured Frantz. He is still out of action, while Grifo could play instead of Abrashi.
Probable lineups Freiburg: Schwolow – Lienhart, Heintz, R. Koch – Schmid, Haberer, Hofler, Gunter – Holer, Grifo – Petersen
Borussia played a bit weaker in two previous rounds and results of that are two consecutive draws. Because of that they moved down in the table but they won an important victory in the Champions League this week. They drew with Barcelona in the first round, while on Wednesday they defeated Slavia in Prague by 2-0. Interestingly, Hakimi was scorer of both goals and he played at for him unusual position in the midfield which turned to be an excellent move. Brandt played in the top of attack and he assisted twice but still could lose his place in the team to M. Gotze, which would be the only change in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Dortmund: Burki – Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji, Guerreiro – Delaney, Witsel – Sancho, Reus, Hakimi – M. Gotze
Betting Pick: Freiburg vs Dortmund
Freiburg plays surprisingly well and they are doing better when playing away. Borussia has its ups and downs but they are individually stronger than their hosts and we forecast that the guests will dominate and win the match.
Pick: Borussia Dortmund wins
