Borussia Monchengladbach are currently sitting fourth and will be battling tooth and nails for that Champions League spot. They were in a bad run, having won none of their last four matches, before defeating Mainz 05 in the last round. Behind them are Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen, who are only three and four points away. The competition for Champions League qualification is going to be fierce, and it won’t be a surprise if things are decided in the last round.

Meanwhile, their opponents Freiburg are sitting comfortably mid-table. They are 12th at the moment and are eleven points away from the relegation zone, so if they don’t capitulate, then they are pretty safe from relegation. However, they are also 12 points away from the sixth place which allows teams to participate in the Europa League, so it’s unlikely that they have a chance of qualifying. Still, they beat Hertha Berlin last round and showed that they are a team that shouldn’t be underestimated. Often teams that don’t have anything to play for are performing better because there is no pressure on them.

Team News

Gladbach will have to deal with the absences of Mamadou Doucoure and Ibrahima Toure who are both injured. Matthias Ginter, Florian Meyer, and Josip Drmic are some of the key players who are doubts for the clash and will need to be assessed before kick-off.

Robert Sallai has been injured for Freiburg for quite a while and will definitely miss the game. Defender Manuel Gulde missed the last five games for his team due to a muscle injury, and it’s not clear if he has recovered yet. Robin Koch is in a similar situation, although he has a knee injury. Tim Kleindienst, Nicolas Hofler, and Florian Kath have been out for a longer period and probably won’t be fit for the match.

The last time Freiburg won at Borussia Park was in 1995. Since then, the visitors have drawn six and lost nine games in this stadium. Borussia Monchengladbach are the second best team in the league when it comes to home matches, although they’ve lost their previous three games at home in the league, which is surprising. Freiburg have been fairly bad away from home this season, winning only twice and scoring 11 goals.

We saw more than 2.5 goals in 14 of Gladbach’s last 17 games at Borussia Park, and they also conceded three or more goals in their previous three home fixtures in the Bundesliga. Three of Freiburg’s last five matches have finished over 2.5 goals, and even though they aren’t the most prolific team when playing away from home, we can see this match finishing with three or more goals in it. Four of the last five meeting between these two sides have finished with more than 2.5 goals in them, so they definitely love scoring against each other. That’s why we would advise you to bet on over 2.5 goals at Bet365.

Prediction: Over 2.5 goals @ 5/7 at Bet365
