    Monchengladbach Aim to Maintain Place at Top of Table

    The Bundesliga has been very exciting to watch so far this season and things are looking tight at the top of the table. As things stand ahead of the weekend fixtures, Borussia Monchengladbach are top of the league with 25 points to their name, leading by one point ahead of RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich.

    Borussia Monchengladbach’s opponents on Sunday, Freiburg are in 4th place on 21 points and will be aiming to close the gap on the leaders.

    Borussia Monchengladbach played on Thursday night in the Europa League and picked up a 1-0 win away against Austrian club Wolfsberger AC. This sees them sit top of their group but with work still to do in order to qualify.

    Back to the Bundesliga, and Borussia Monchengladbach suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Union Berlin away from home last weekend. That result ended a run of 3 straight victories in the Bundesliga which included wins at home against Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen plus an away win at Bayer Leverkusen.

    Trends show Borussia Monchengladbach have won each of their last 4 home matches in the Bundesliga. They have won each of their last 5 home games in all competitions and have seen both teams score in 11 of their last 14 matches at home. Borussia Monchengladbach have scored 2 or more goals in 6 of their last 8 Bundesliga games.

    Freiburg have enjoyed a great start to their Bundesliga campaign. They have won 6 of their 12 matches and have suffered only 2 defeats. Freiburg come into this match on the back of a 4 game unbeaten run during which they have defeated RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt at home plus picked up a draw at both Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen.

    Trends show Freiburg have lost only one of their last 6 away Bundesliga matches. During that run of games, they have won 3 and drawn 2 with both draws coming in their most recent away fixtures. Both teams scored in 6 of Freiburg's 8 most recent games in the Bundesliga but they have won only 3 of their last 16 away matches in all competitions.

    8 of their last 10 away matches in the Bundesliga have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

    Looking ahead to the team news and Borussia Monchengladbach have doubts over Andreas Poulsen, Florian Mayer, Nico Elvedi and Torben Müsel. Julio Villalba and Keanan Bennetts are back in training.

    Freiburg are without Vincenzo Grifo who is suspended for this match. They have several players with fitness concerns including Gian-Luca Itter, Alexander Schwolow, Amir Abrashi, Lino Tempelmann, Luca Waldschmidt and Lukas Kübler.

    This is a match which should see both teams find the back of the net but Borussia Monchengladbach must be favourites to secure maximum points. They have won each of their last 5 home matches in all competitions and look set to continue that run.
