Borussia Dortmund take on the visitors Freiburg in the round 21 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Friday, February 9th at Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
Borussia missed out on the championship last season due to their own downfall when they couldn't overcome the last hurdle to secure the long-awaited silver salad bowl - the simple task of winning at home against Mainz on the final day. Then Bellingham left as well. Despite this, they managed to clinch the top spot in a highly competitive Champions League group, leaving behind PSG, AC Milan, and Newcastle. However, the powerhouse stumbled domestically, crashing out of the cup in autumn and languishing in 5th place in the Bundesliga at the winter break. Terzic stayed put, but many believe that the addition of Sven Bender and Nuri Sahin to the coaching staff in winter might signal their eventual succession to Edin. They also bolstered their squad by loaning Matsen from Chelsea and bringing back Jadon Sancho from Manchester United. As a result, they started winning from January, and convincingly so. Yes, the fixture list was kind, but the crucial part was surpassing RB Leipzig, seemingly securing a spot in the top four... only to stumble again, failing to score against Heidenheim and ending up with a goalless draw against the league debutants.

Freiburg have set a high standard in recent years. The Brazilian team from Breisgau is considered a mid-table team in German football. However, Christian Streich and his team have had good seasons lately: their first-ever appearance in the cup final and consistent finishes in the Eurozone. Once again in the Europa League, the Germans managed to advance to the playoffs, starting next week against Lens. However, they suffered a home defeat to modest Paderborn in the cup in early November. Results in the Bundesliga were not great either. In January, for example, they only took 4 points from 3 matches, winning only against Hoffenheim (3-2, despite being a man down). They also suffered an early red card against Stuttgart, but by that time, the visitors were already leading 2-0. To their credit, the hosts managed to score one goal but still ended up losing 1-3.
The Black and Yellows have recently solidified their superiority over the Black and Whites. The 4-2 victory in September was their 4th consecutive win. It's unlikely that the Black and Yellows will suffer a second setback in a row, especially considering that their visitors are clearly out of form. Therefore, we recommend betting on a -1 goal handicap for Edin Terzic's charges.
Prediction for the match: Borussia Dortmund to win with -1.0 handicap.
