The German Bundesliga is back once again this weekend as they continue to rebound following the extended winter break. German football was away longer than any other top flight across Europe and now that they’re back, things are beginning to heat up. That’s especially true within the context of the title race and on Saturday, we’ll see a big encounter in that battle as Borussia Dortmund take on Freiburg.

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund have gone from floundering around with inconsistency to rattling off a nice win streak, forcing themselves back into the championship conversation. They are considered to be a club that sells on its best players and continues to bring through new stars but with how competitive the Bundesliga is this year, it wouldn’t at all surprise us to see them go all the way.

Team News

Ozcan is suspended whereas Morey and Meunier are both injured for the visit of Freiburg.


The name of the game has been ‘steady progress’ for Freiburg across the last few years. They’ve been able to build a steady, reliable and consistent first team and for the first half of the campaign, they’ve looked like they could make a real push for the title. That can still be seen as accurate given that they’re only three points off top, but you’d have to say they’ve been running out of steam ever so slightly.

Team News

There are no injury worries for the visitors as Grifo returns from illness with Hofler also coming back from suspension.

Factors to Consider

  • Dortmund beat Freiburg 3-1 in their last meeting back in August 2022.
  • Dortmund have won all three of their games following the winter break.
  • Freiburg have won one, drawn one and lost one of their games after the winter break.
  • Dortmund have scored eight goals and conceded four in their last three games.
  • Freiburg have scored four goals and conceded eight in their last six games.


Inconsistency has been the big problem for Freiburg as they’ve allowed themselves to slip ever so slightly out of contention in the race for the title. They have a lot of quality in their ranks but the pressure of this situation, understandably, seems to be getting to them. Dortmund, meanwhile, are on fire, which is why we’re backing them to keep their surge of momentum going with a confident and comfortable win here.
