Freiburg – Bar already high after Augsburg trouncing?

The Breisgau-Brasilianer were, quite literally, among the biggest winners as domestic football returned last weekend. The action got underway in three of Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues, and of these teams, only Bayern Munich and PSG recorded wider margins victories than the 4-0 scoreline inflicted upon Augsburg by Christian Streich’s men. An impressive start, then, for the sixth-best team in Germany last time round.

Maintaining those standards won’t be easy, not least because they take on last season’s runners-up on Matchday 2. However, Freiburg have actually beaten Dortmund the last two times the sides have met at Europa-Park, losing just one of their five previous encounters (W2 D2) at Friday evening’s venue. Although a record of one win from the last four home league games (D1 L2) is altogether less encouraging.

Key Stat: Freiburg would give up three goals or more in all but one of their four previous Bundesliga home games, conceding three in a 3-3 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach and four to both Bayern Munich and Union Berlin in 4-1 losses.

Borussia Dortmund – No Haaland no problem?

Few teams thrive on the opening weekend like BVB, who made it an eighth season in a row winning their very first league game as they saw off the spirited challenge of Bayer Leverkusen in last Saturday’s tea-time kick-off. Mr. Dortmund himself, Marco Reus, provided the telling contribution at Signal Iduna Park as the Black and Yellows showcased an early glimpse of life in the post-Erling Haaland era.

Dortmund actually created enough to have scored more, tallying more xGF than Freiburg managed in their rout of Augsburg. It is probably too early to read anything into this – whether profligacy could become a regular theme in the absence of their former Norwegian scoring supremo – but, having shipped two goals on all three recent visits to Freiburg, BVB must sharpen up in search of their fourth straight Bundesliga win.

Key Stat: Last season, Dortmund would only fail to find the back of net in one of 17 Bundesliga away games (W9 D3 L5), only failing to do so in a 1-0 reverse at Borussia Monchengladbach. They are currently enjoying a run of 14 consecutive away league games scoring at least once.

Freiburg Vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Advice

Something will have to give as Freiburg and Borussia Dortmund lock horns seeking to build on confidence boosting opening weekend victories. Freiburg were especially impressive first time out, albeit it took them a while to get going before emphatically dispatching Augsburg 4-0 on the road – with all of the goals coming after the interval. Conversely, Dortmund went ahead early at home to Leverkusen and held on, 1-0.


Freiburg Vs Borussia Dortmund – Key Facts:

  • The last five Bundesliga head-to-heads featured a win for the home side that day. Freiburg are seeking a third straight victory at home to Borussia Dortmund, after 2-1 wins in 2020-21 and 2021-22.
  • Six of the past seven Bundesliga games between these two teams contained at least three goals, with Dortmund prevailing 5-1 at Signal Iduna Park in the most recent of these.
  • Freiburg have scored in their last 11 Bundesliga home games (nine of which saw Over 2.5 Goals) while Dortmund last produced a blank on their travels in September of last year, scoring in 14 subsequent away league outings (Over 2.5 Goals in eight).


Dortmund were fortunate to preserve their clean sheet on MD1. Freiburg will cause them problems, though I suspect both defences could be in for taxing evening. Each of the last three league meetings between the sides here at Europa-Park has seen Over 2.5 Goals but also Both Teams To Score. Freiburg have scored in 11 straight Bundesliga home games, like Dortmund in their last 14 on the road. Goals seems inevitable.
