Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund 21/04/19

21 April 2019

Out-of-form Freiburg side welcomes the Bundesliga title contenders Borussia Dortmund to the Schwarzwald-Stadion going after their first league victory over BVB in H2Hs after 15 unsuccessful attempts (D2, L13).

Although the hosts seem to be on the verge of preserving their top-flight status, they are not enjoying the happiest of times as they come into this meeting after failing to wrap up all three points in four successive Bundesliga outings (D2, L2). However, in spite of a run of poor form, Christian Streich’s men are unbeaten in all four of their previous BL home clashes (W2, D2) with Freiburg scoring 2+ match goals three times across those games. Far more comfortable at home, Freiburg have collected 21 of a total of 32 of their BL points at home (65.63%), with five of their seven BL wins arriving at this venue. Still, Breisgau-Brasilianer have endured mixed fortunes in home H2Hs with the BL’s top-six sides (W2, D1, L2), with three of those fixtures featuring over 2.5 goals.

On the other hand, the visitors have managed to bounce back after a humiliating 5-0 road loss to Bayern Munich as they go into this encounter off the back of a 2-1 home triumph over Mainz 05. Sitting one point adrift of the BL toppers Bayern, the Black and Yellows have to find the way to solve their road crisis as they can’t afford another failure here. BVB’s immense problems away from home have seen them secure just one triumph on their previous five BL road trips (W1, D2, L2), with all three of those defeats saw them failed to find the net. The one thing that can encourage Lucien Favre ahead of this clash is Dortmund’s impressive road record against Freiburg, as BVB pulled off six victories on their last seven visits to this venue (W6, D1).
