Freiburg will be looking to continue their recent solid form in the Bundesliga this weekend when they travel to Gladbach. The hosts have lost two of their last three, while Freiburg will be looking for a response after being held in their previous fixture.
This fixture looks set to come at a pivotal stage of the season for Freiburg, as they sit just outside the Champions League positions in the Bundesliga standings. Their recent form has been pretty solid, as they have picked up three wins from their last five, while they come into this fixture after going three without defeat in the Germany top flight. However, the visitors will be looking for a response after they were held in their most recent fixture in the league.
That draw was picked up last Sunday against Bayer Leverkusen, as they couldn’t hold on to a 1-0 success in the final 25 minutes. Vincenzo Grifo scored the opening goal in the match after 28 minutes, but Freiburg allowed Leverkusen back into the game in the closing stages. In truth, they were slightly fortunate to hold on to a point in the final ten minutes.
It looks like a tall order for Gladbach to get back into the mix for a European finish this season, as they sit down in tenth. They currently find themselves nine points off the top six, and their recent form has been slightly underwhelming. Over their previous four matches, they have picked up just a single win, and they have lost on two occasions.
The German side comes into this fixture after having fallen to defeat in their previous fixture in the Bundesliga. That was a poor performance on the road, as they were easily swatted aside by Mainz, eventually losing 4-0. Gladbach managed just two shots on target in that defeat, and a response will be needed on Saturday.
