Our football match prediction:
Borussia Dortmund will be with one eye on the Champions League clash with Benfica when they take on Freiburg at Scharzwald-Stadion on Saturday afternoon. The Millionaires recorded a routine win over Wolfsburg at their Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend and, as a result, they regained their spot in top three. Thomas Tuchel’s men need to keep on improving their game if they are to book their place in the Champions League, but they face a difficult task in Saturday’s football match against Freiburg, who are tough to beat at home. Thomas Tuchel could rest some of his key players for the Champions League last 16, return leg against Benfica and, taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will grab something from the match. Freiburg recorded three wins in previous four home fixtures in the national championship, but they should be happy with one point from the Borussia Dortmund game.

Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
