Our match prediction:
High-flying Borussia Dortmund will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Darmstadt and Wolfsburg when they welcome Freiburg at their Signal-Iduna-Park on Friday night. The Millionaires scored 11 goals in previous two league matches and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Freiburg. The newcomers did well to beat Hamburger in midweek, with Nils Petersen scoring the winner for Florian Niederlechner’s troops, but it is well known that they struggle on the travels. Freiburg face an uphill task in Friday’s football match against the in-form hosts and they are likely to return home empty-handed. In Marco Reus’ absence a man to watch in the home team will Aubameyang, who has netted four goals in three appearances in Bundesliga this season. Anyhow, Borussia Dortmund look unstoppable at the moment and we predict that the Millionaires are going to roll over die Breisgau-Brasilianer on Matchday 5.
Highligted Player (Sahin):
Born in Germany to Turkish parents, Nuri Sahin is a Turkish international midfielder, who hasn’t exactly managed to realise his full potential. The left-footed footballer remains one of the most impressive players to have graduated from the Borussia Dortmund youth academy, and he went on to become a first team regular at Westfalenstadion at the age of 17. Following a thoroughly impressive loan stint with Feyenoord, Sahin returned to Dortmund, where he enjoyed two more very successful years before signing for Real Madrid. However, it was at that time that his career started taking the wrong turn as he was never able to rediscover his form, and he eventually returned to Borussia following a somewhat disappointing stint at Liverpool. Sahin is no longer considered a first team regular for either club or country, but he has amassed around 50 appearances for the Turkey national team, and he still has time to get his career back on track.
Highlighted Team (Freiburg):
Freiburg are a professional football club that compete in German Bundesliga. Freiburg were founded in 1904 and they welcome their rivals at Schwarzwald-Stadion. The stadium has been the home of Freiburg since 1954 and the capacity of the facility is 24,000. Die Breisgau-Brasilianer wear black and white shirts and black shorts, whilst the colour of the team’s away kit is white. Freiburg made it to the German Cup semis in the 2012/2013 DFB Pokal campaign, but their local rivals VFB Stuttgart proved to be a big catch for the Schwarzwald-Stadion outfit. After spending several years in lower leagues, Die Breisgau-Brasilianer returned to the German top flight in 2016. The likes of Levan Kobiashvili, Papiss Cisse, Sascha Rieter, Joachim Low, Zlatan Bajramovic, Mohammadaou Idrissou, Roda Antar, Sebastian Kehl, Richard Golz are the notable footballers who played for Augsburg in the past. It is well known that Joachim Low helped Germany win the 2014 FIFA World Cup as a coach.
