Betting Tips for the game
Freiburg were able to come up with a resolute point against Hertha Berlin during the weekend. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Olympiastadion Berlin, but the result meant three winless Bundesliga matches for Streich’s men.
Borussia Mönchengladbach came up with a handsome 4-0 win over Mainz 05 as they picked off the opponents, who were ineffective in the pressing game. This was the third victory in four league outings for Dieter Hecking’s men.
The recent match between these two teams took place at Borussia-Park with Mönchengladbach making the most of home advantage to claim a 3-1 win. Mönchengladbach, though, continued the poor away run against Freiburg after losing 1-0 in the recent visit to the Schwarzwald-Stadion. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are at odds of 2.25 to win this match. It is quite a generous price for a second-placed team. Similarly, Freiburg are at odds of 3.25 to win the game despite having picked up only two victories this season. Yet, the Schwarzwald-Stadion has not been a happy ground for Mönchengladbach, who have picked up just a point from the last five trips. One has to go back to 2002 to witness Mönchengladbach’s last away win over Freiburg in the Bundesliga. Our preview would go with a draw.

Freiburg win odds: 3.25
Borussia Mönchengladbach win odds: 2.25
Correct Score odds
Mönchengladbach are likely to get Raffael back from injury. Even without the German finisher, Hecking’s men have been brilliant going forward. The likes of Thorgan Hazard have helped Mönchengladbach hit an average of almost three goals per game in the last six. Freiburg, though, do defend well at home and have conceded just five goals in the four home games. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games between Freiburg and Mönchengladbach have produced plenty of entertainment in recent times but majority of those entertaining games have been at Borussia-Park. Freiburg may be at home but they are likely to defend deep, as they did against Hertha Berlin. Our total goals prediction would go for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alassane Plea was overshadowed by Jonas Hofmann and his hat-trick against Mainz 05. However, it is hard to overlook the form of the summer signing, who is the top scorer at Mönchengladbach with five goals and two assists. Our first goalscorer prediction would go with Alassane Plea.
