Venue: MAGE-SOLAR Stadion


SC Freiburg and Borussia Monchengladbach are desperately (hanging on to dear life) as they try to protect their interests and pursue their ambitions.


Borussia Monchengladbach is miles away from the relegation zone. Technically speaking, it has nothing to worry about keeping its Bundesliga status. However, its main concern revolves protecting its 2-point lead against Mainz 05, which, like them, is keen on qualifying for the Europa League.


Die Fohlen’s remaining matches is a tough one. After Freiburg, it needs to overcome Schalke 04, Wolfsburg and Mainz 05. Winning over Freiburg is crucial. But they cannot underestimate such club either. They may be the favorites to win of sports betting sites, but this does not mean that they will have an easy breezy victory.


SC Freiburg currently occupies the 14th spot of the Bundesliga table. Yet, its current form suggests that will fight tooth and nail just to veer away from the relegation zone. It has only lost once in its last 6 matches, just like Borussia Monchengladbach. Moreover, it has been very effective in its home performances. So far, Freiburg has already won 3 of its home matches. In those victories, the club has also installed a record of scoring an average of 2 goals, which could easily bring problems to Die  Fohlen.


Although there is a wide discrepancy in terms of the clubs’ ranking, one can still, expect a down the wire match. SC Freiburg is fighting for survival, Borussia Monchengladbach aspires for a wider exposure. Indeed, this is not just an ordinary match, but a battle of interests and dreams.
