Borussia Dortmund Preview – Will Dortmund put pressure on leaders Bayern with another important victory?

It still looks a tall order but last weekend’s results have given Dortmund some hope they can win a first title in 10 years. With leaders Bayern losing at home on Friday night, Marco Rose’s men knew they could cut the gap on them to six points if they could get a victory away to Eintracht Frankfurt the following day. Two goals down with less than 20 minutes to go, that looked unlikely. It appeared as though Dortmund would waste another chance of reducing the deficit.

That was until one of the best comebacks of the season so far. Dortmund rallied with goals from Thorgan Hazard, Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud, a win which could reignite what was a flagging season.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 6 January )

With Bayern playing the following day this week, it presents a chance to go just three points behind and put some pressure on the perennial title winners. Their only home defeat in the league came against the champions. They’ve won all of the other eight and that gives them the best home record in the Bundesliga. Eight of the nine home games have also seen three or more goals in them.

Last weekend was a rare match where Erling Haaland didn’t score but he was still eventual and if Dortmund are to stay near Bayern, then he will have to have a hugely impactful second half of the season.

Freiburg Preview – Can Freiburg bounce back from last week’s disappointment and upset hosts?

In what is proving to be one of the most competitive Bundesliga’s for a long time. Freiburg are more than holding their own as they battle for a top four spot and qualification to the Champions League for the first time. Currently in fourth, they are one point ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and a point behind Hoffenheim. Six points separate seven teams and it looks set to be a very closely fought battle for third and fourth.

The one frustration for Christian Streich (who celebrated 10 years in charge of the club last month) is that they aren’t sitting third. Freiburg could only manage a 2-2 draw at home to struggling Arminia Bielefeld.

They have to get over that disappointment with one of the hardest games of the season. Any result here would be a bonus but they have beaten big teams already this season, including Dortmund. Freiburg have also beaten Wolfsburg, Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach.

There’s been an improvement in Freiburg’s away from overall this season. They took 18 points on the road throughout the whole campaign last season and have already accumulated 15 just past the halfway stage of this. It could be a memorable way of doing it if they can gain a win here.

Borussia Dortmund vs Freiburg Betting Advice

Although Freiburg have gotten the better of Dortmund in recent years, it is always when playing at home. Their record here is pretty dismal. Their last win was back in 2001 and since then, they have picked up just one point from the 13 visits since then.

Despite that record, the fact they would go to within three points of their opponents with a win is an indication that they are not miles behind Dortmund. And in a season where there have been a lot of surprises, this could be another.


Key Facts –  Borussia Dortmund vs Freiburg Betting Tip

  • Dortmund have the joint most home wins (eight) this season along with Bayern
  • Freiburg have conceded the fewest number of away goals in the Bundesliga (seven in nine matches)
  • It is 12 years since the visitors last won here (a 2-0 win back in October 2010)


It is hard to be confident in the home considering they shift from the sublime to the ridiculous. Which is consistent is the goals which feature in their games.

Over 2.5 goals may not be the greatest odds, but it looks a certainty here.
