Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Sunday’s football game between Freiburg and Borussia M’gladbach will bring down the curtain on day 6 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Freiburg came from behind to beat Bayer Leverkusen in their last league match, with the team climbing to top position in the standings. The surprising league leaders aim to extend their winning run to four matches, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. The likes of Gulde, Sallai, Ezekwem, Holer, and Schade should miss out with injuries for the home side.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Mainz, but seeing that defender Ko Itakura is banned for the match, home win should be considered. All Elvedi, Plea, Lainer, Noss, and Musel are injured for the visiting side. You should know that Freiburg crushed M’gladbach 6-0 in their penultimate meeting in the German top flight.
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.
