Team News

  • Andreas Hinkel could fill in for the injured Mensur Mujdza at right-back again after being left out in the last game.
  • Manager Sorg could switch to a 4-1-4-1 system, with his second defensive midfielder Julian Schuster suspended.
  • With Moritz Leitner and Sven Bender injured, Ilkay Gündogan and Sebastian Kehl could start in central midfield.
  • Jakub Blaszczykowski will probably replace the injured Mario Götze on the right wing.
  • Kevin Großkreutz and Ivan Perisic compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • Lucas Barrios could start on the bench again, allowing Robert Lewandowski to play up front.

Prediction

  • Freiburg are bottom of the table. They need to work on their defence and star striker Papiss Demba Cissé needs more support from midfield again.
  • Dortmund are currently unbeaten in their last ten Bundesliga games (seven wins, three draws) and a game against Freiburg is a good opportunity to improve this streak. The return of Sebastian Kehl should give their side more balance in midfield again.
  • Expect Dortmund to control the game from the outset. Freiburg have to improve defensively to keep the game close for some time, but in the end, Dortmund's superior quality should come out on top.
  • WHOSCORED.COM Predicts: Dortmund win 2-0
