Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at Schwarzwald-Stadion pits together Freiburg and Borussia M’gladbach, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season. Freiburg have been struggling in the German elite division ever since the club chiefs sold important first-team regulars, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to avoid relegation to 2. Bundesliga.
The likes of Flekken, Haberer, and Kubler have all been struggling with injuries, while Korea international Kwon Chang-Hoon is rated doubtful after he was tested positive for coronavirus. Die Fohlen, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top 5, and they are eager to build on a 4-1 win over Schalke 04. Borussia M’gladbach are more of a team than Freiburg, and even though Elvedi and Hofmann remain in the recovery room, and Bensebaini is quarantined, away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Nils Petersen):
Son to a football coach, Andreas, the Freiburg striker Nils Petersen is a physical forward best known for his clinical finishing. A former Bayern Munich striker never got a chance to prove his worth with Bundesliga giants and had to take a long road to prominence which included loan spells at Werder Bremen and Freiburg, before penning a permanent deal with Die Breisaguer in 2015.
Petersen’s impressive exploits during the 2017/18 season helped him get into Germany’s provisional FIFA World Cup 2018 squad although his father Andreas would argue it was his personal influence that helped Joachim Loew write his son’s name in the 23-man list. Namely, Andres Piteresen spotted the Germany manager on a beach in January and decided to ask him about his son’s chances of making it into Germany World Cup squad.
Piteresen was rewarded with his senior Germany cap in an Austria friendly but unfortunately for his father missed out on the final squad for the tournament in Russia.
