Tough match for Marco Reus and Co. against an in-form Freiburg

<div><h2>Freiburg vs Dortmund</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday, October 5, at Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg)</strong></a></p><p>Despite missing a penalty in the 2nd half of the game against Fortuna Dusseldorf, Freiburg won 2-1 on the road with the 19-year old rising star Luca Waldschmidt, who ended as top-scorer at the European Under-21 Championship in the summer, netting a superb winning goal in the 81st minute. Freiburg’s Christian Streich, who’s the longest-serving coach in the German top-flight league being in charge since 2011, is enjoy a great start to his new Bundesliga season. Freiburg have just lost 1 in 6 fixtures so far and that was a big surprise as they lost home to FC Koln. They are sitting 3rd in the standings with 13 points earned in 6 matches and they enter this match full of confidence and ready to pull-off another upset. On the other side Dortmund are just 2 points behind their opponents. Their inconsistency and their defensive issues lost them several points this season (defeat on the road to the newly promoted side, Union Berlin, 2-2 draw home with Werder and 2-2 draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt). We should mention that before the Bundesliga weekend round of fixtures, Dortmund travel to play Slavia Prague on Wednesday in Champions League.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Jadon Sancho remains Europe’s most creative since the start of the season recording 6 assists across all competitions. Both Mats Hummels and Nico Schulz remain a doubt for this trip to Schwarzwald-Stadion while Dortmund’s star striker Paco Alcacer is expected not to recover on time after withdrawing from the team with an Achilles problem. This is exactly what we were talking at the start of the season. If Dortmund’s players stay fit then they can fight Bayern for the title but with so many defensive issues with their best 2 centre-backs being out for so many matches plus their best strikers getting injured, they won’t even get close to the reigning champs. On the other side Freiburg have no fresh injury issues so we expect them to use their best starting lineup. More than that, they don’t have European commitments so they will be fully prepared and ready for this clash.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Dortmund conceded 6 goals in their 3 away domestic fixtures this season earning just 4 points in the process. Their UCL tough travel and their injury issues will give them huge headaches ahead of their clash away at Freiburg. The hosts have the 3rd joint attack in the league with 13 goals netted in 6 matches and we expect them to extend their great scoring form contributing on the scoreboard at home against BVB. Without Paco Alcacer, Lucien Favre will be forced to use Gotze in both Champions League match against Slavia Prague and away to Freiburg. It’s tough to predict a winner so we will play the goals-market as we expect a goal-fest with both teams to score and at least 3 goals in the game.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.76 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
