The Freiburg football players opened the new season dominantly. They outclassed Augsburg 4-0 away thanks to a brilliant second-half performance.
After the first 45 minutes, it was 0-0, and the guests scored four goals in just over half an hour. Freiburg had four different scorers in this match, and the best individual was striker Michael Gregoritsch, who notched a goal and an assist. It is interesting that this Austrian player arrived in Freiburg this summer from Augsburg.
This team played great last season. In the Bundesliga, they finished in sixth place, and they also reached the final of the German Cup, where they were unfortunately defeated by Leipzig on penalties. However, the team did not lose confidence, and based on the first game in the new season, Freiburg will play well in the new competitive year.
Thanks to a goal by captain Marco Reus, Borussia Dortmund players beat Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 in the derby of the first round of the Bundesliga. However, this match also brought some losses for BVB.
The reinforcement from Salzburg, striker Karim Adeyemi, was injured in the first half of this match and it is uncertain how long he will be absent. As a reminder, Sebastian Haller will miss the entire season due to testicular cancer, so coach Edin Terzic is in big trouble when it comes to the team’s offensive line. There are also certain problems in defense since central defender Niklas Sule injured a muscle, so he will have to wait a little longer for his debut for the new club.
The quality of the team’s performance on Friday will largely depend on Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard, and Julian Brandt. Borussia also signed experienced striker Anthony Modeste from Koln, but it is questionable whether he will play on Friday.
In the duels between these two teams last season, the hosts celebrated. In the first part of the season, Freiburg won 2-1, while Borussia Dortmund was very convincing in their stadium 5-1.
Freiburg (4-5-1): Flekken; Gunter, Ginter, Lienhart, Sildillia; Hofler, Eggestein, Doan, Jeon, Grifo; Gregoritsch
Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Kobel; Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro, Meunier; Dahoud, Bellingham; Reus, Malen, Hazard; Modeste
We expect a very dynamic match. Both teams prefer attacking football, so we will likely see a clash with plenty of scoring opportunities on both sides of the pitch. We believe that the players of both Freiburg and Borussia Dortmund will be in good spirits and accurate, and we predict that there will be a lot of goals.
