Players to watch
SC Freiburg - Nils Petersen
Nils Petersen has regularly been among the goals ever since he arrived at Freiburg from Werder Bremen in 2015, scoring 21 goals in his first full season with the club to help them gain an immediate promotion in 2016. Since then, he has hit double figures to help Freiburg retain their top-tier status.
This season, he has scored two goals and assisted once from six matches to help Freiburg to the third position on the standings and he would be confident of breaching a Dortmund defence that has been breached on nine occasions in the league this season.
Borussia Dortmund - Marco Reus
Marco Reus is easily among the best playmakers in the world, with his technical ability, range of passing and shooting accuracy ranking high up there with the best on the planet; but injuries have seriously hampered his contributions over the years.
Last season, the 30-year-old had his first injury-free season in five years and he was the star of the show as Dortmund pushed Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, contributing 17 goals and 8 assists from just 27 fixtures.
This term, he has continued from where he left and has scored four goals from the opening six matches as BVB seek to go one better than last season.
SC Freiburg win: 5.10
Borussia Dortmund win: 1.60
