The Bundesliga is back in action this weekend as Borussia Dortmund host SC Freiburg at the Signal Iduna Park. The home side has not enjoyed the most positive results so far this season and will want to win this game.

SC Freiburg have endured a mixed start to their Bundesliga season and have picked up four points in their first two games of the new campaign. The away side played out a 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg last week and can trouble Borussia Dortmund in this game.

Borussia Dortmund suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to FC Augsburg last week and crashed out of the DFB-Pokal during the week after a late Joshua Kimmich goal saw Bayern Munich triumph in an exhilarating fixture. Lucien Favre has plenty of work to do to going into this fixture as Borussia Dortmund look to put their early-season woes behind them.

Borussia Dortmund managed a narrow 1-0 victory against SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga earlier this year. Jadon Sancho's early goal proved to be the difference between the two sides on the day and the young English prodigy will play a pivotal role in this game.
