Preview

Borussia Monchengladbach resume their Bundesliga campaign post the international break with a home game against SC Freiburg on Saturday.

The hosts' 3-0 win over FC Schalke on 20 March was their first win in nine games across all competitions. Freiburg also recorded a 2-0 win in their previous outing against Augsburg after two consecutive losses.

The hosts have lost their last four games at Borussia Park. They will be hoping to end that winless run in this game against a side they haven't lost to in their last 16 meetings.

The two clubs have faced each other 39 times across all competitions since 1993, the year Freiburg played their first top-flight game.

The two sides have been evenly matched in this fixture so far, with 12 wins for the hosts and 14 for Breisgau-Brasilianer. The remaining 13 games have ended in stalemates.

They last met at the Schwarzwald-Stadion in December, with that fixture ending in a high-scoring 2-2 draw.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs SC Freiburg Prediction

After a great start to the 2020-21 campaign, the hosts have struggled for form across all competitions. They have failed to score in three of their five games across all competitions. Freiburg have also failed to score in three of their last five league games.

Given the current form of both sides, a draw looks like the most likely outcome from the game.

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach 2-2 SC Freiburg
