Freiburg closed last season at an impressive 7th place. This was a great achievement for the newly promoted side. However, their dream of joining the European Competition was crashed before it even began. Their 2-1 loss to a Slovenian side seems to have set their pace for 2017/2018 season.
BVB pre-season was not a smooth road either. However, their new boss’s (Peter Bosz) ideology rhymes well with Dortmund style, which boosts their confidence in the upcoming match. What is more, they have shown how dangerous they can be through their impressive performances playing against Wolfsburg and Hertha in their opening games. Now that the transfer season is closed, they must be very positive about the new season given that Pierre Emerick is set to stay with the team.
Head to head
In February, when the two teams met, Borussia Dortmund got away with a 3-0 win against Freiburg. In their last 12 encounters, Dortmund has been unbeaten.
