There are teams that are simply stronger than others. That’s only natural. It is commonly claimed that you can win one of ten games against top teams. Against other clubs you might win two out of five and even four on five if the opponent is weaker. The fact that you have never won in 14 games is rather unusual in the Bundesliga, no matter what the two opponents may be called.
Dortmund vs Freiburg Free Betting Tips
At this point we come to Christian Streich, who has been leading the Freiburg team through the Bundesliga for many years. To date, he is waiting for a win against Borussia Dortmund in 14 direct duels. Against this background, there is not much to suggest that the Saturday game in Signal Iduna Park has been a fun trip for the Freiburg trainer.
In addition to the coach, numerous Freiburg players have also never won against Dortmund. A look at the Bundesliga table makes it clear that the outlook on Saturday is again rather slim. BVB continues to be in the lead and is four points behind Bayern and three points behind Leipzig.
What the competition is doing in the title fight this weekend can be read in the current Bundesliga tips. SC Freiburg were in the top third of the table at the beginning of the season, but have recently been passed through to midfield. Overall, therefore, in the duel between Dortmund and Freiburg, there is absolutely no reason to predict an away win.
Fear opponents BVB, significantly better form of the black and yellow, away misery of the Breisgauer – all these are facts that cannot be dismissed out of hand. In fact, it almost looks as if the Breisgauer could experience a lavish bankruptcy. Between Dortmund and Freiburg, a tip on a high home win cannot be dismissed out of hand.
BVB in particular urgently needs the points so that the competition for the championship does not run away. For Freiburg, a counter would be an unexpected point gain, which would hardly make a difference in the current classification.
Dortmund – Statistics & current form
It gives the impression that Borussia Dortmund did everything right during the winter break. The battered Lucien Favre was held on to. The BVB bosses also presented Erling Haaland and Emre Can as a New Year’s gift. This can be seen as an absolute attack on the championship.
Haaland goal machine with nine ligators in six games
One can only congratulate Borussia on the new signings. Erling Haaland has now scored nine goals in six Bundesliga games. Only Paco Alcacer needed less start-up time in the league for nine goals. The Norwegian played a significant role in the fact that Dortmund, alongside Bayern, is the most dangerous offensive in the league with 65 goals.
Nevertheless, at the beginning of February there was a small dry spell with the bankruptcies in the cup in Bremen and in the league in Leverkusen. Since then, BVB has taken three wins in a row. The home record is also terrific. Dortmund is at the top of the home table and is the only Bundesliga club to be unbeaten at home this season.
The bookmaker’s odds comparison makes it clear that between Dortmund and Freiburg only the odds of a home win should be interesting. Last weekend, BVB returned the cup for Bremen. On the Weser, Borussia won 2-0 through the goals of Erling Haaland and Dan-Axel Zagadou. In addition, it looks as if the next round in the premier class could be achieved after the 2-1 home win against Paris.
Favre warns of dangerous Freiburgers
In our Champions League tips we will report on the second leg against PSG. But back to Freiburg.
“You are a dangerous team. We know how difficult it is to play against Freiburg. ” – Lucien Favre
Despite the outstanding balance sheets against the Breisgau, Lucien Favre considers SC Freiburg to be a dangerous team and expects a very difficult game on Saturday. With this opinion, the BVB coach should be almost alone.
Marco Reus will still not be available to Dortmund on Saturday. This also applies to Thomas Delaney. Otherwise, all players are operational. That could mean that Julian Brandt will now be back in the starting XI. Thorgan Hazard would be the first candidate to face a bank position instead.
Probable lineup of Dortmund:
↪ Bürki – Piszczek, Hummels, Zagadou – Hakimi, Witsel, Can, Guerreiro – Brandt, Haaland, Sancho
↪ Coach: Favre
Last matches from Dortmund:
⚽️ 02/22/2020 – Werder Bremen vs. Dortmund 0-2 (Bundesliga)
⚽️02/18/2020 – Dortmund vs. PSG 2: 1 (Champions League)
⚽️ 02/14/2020 – Dortmund vs. Frankfurt 4: 0 (Bundesliga)

Freiburg – Statistics & current form
In the first third of the season, SC Freiburg clearly played above the conditions when it was located in the qualification for the Europa League. In the meantime, the sports club has arrived where it actually belongs and does not see itself so reluctantly, namely in the secure midfield of the table.
The current constitution is rather moderate. The Freiburg team won just four points from their last five Bundesliga games. This means that only one win could be celebrated in these five games. During this period Freiburg remained goalless three times. This is more common than it had been in the 18 games before. The trend is obviously descending.
Freiburg’s away series scary
Above all, things are not going well for Christian Streich’s team. Freiburg only won one of the last nine away games. It is interesting that the sports club scores more against the top teams and likes to drop counters against the basement children. However, this fact does not prompt a prediction of an away win between Dortmund and Freiburg.
Last weekend Freiburg once again provided support to a relegation candidate. Fortuna Düsseldorf was a guest in the Black Forest and, thanks to a pompous appearance by the home side, was able to take home the three points in the 2-0 victory. In Dortmund, the Freiburg should not appear again.
Christian Streich indicates that his team has learned the lesson from the appearance against Düsseldorf.
“It is important to be compact and to keep the distances small. We were able to practice that and prepare for BVB. ” – Christian Streich
That’s why he wants his team to see a compact defensive with small distances between the lines on Saturday. According to the coach, that was the content of the training week.
It is conceivable that the sports club will compete in a 3-4-3 system. Roland Sallai and Nils Petersen, maybe also Luca Waldschmidt, would be options for the offensive. Three players will still not be available to Freiburgers this weekend. Amir Abrashi, Lukas Kübler and Chang-Hoon Kwon are still in the hospital.
Probable lineup of Freiburg:
↪ Schwolow – Gulde, Koch, Heintz – Schmid, Günter, Haberer, Höfler – Sallai, Grifo – Höler
↪ Coach: Streich
Last games from Freiburg:
⚽️ 02/22/2020 – Freiburg vs. Dusseldorf 0: 2 (Bundesliga)

⚽️ 08.02.2020 – Freiburg vs. TSG Hoffenheim 1-0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 02.02.2020 – Cologne vs. Freiburg 4: 0 (Bundesliga)
