The staff Thorgan Hazard determined the headlines around Borussia Mönchengladbach during the week. The offensive player, who plays a strong season with 18 points scorer (nine goals, nine assists) from 24 games, has long attracted the interest of big clubs. On Tuesday it was announced that the Belgian rumors would have signed with BVB. The rumored transfer fee is 42 million euros. Most recently, the brother of world class player Eden Hazard (Chelsea) had made his whereabouts in the Rhineland always dependent on the qualification for the Champions League. It is quite possible that the 25-year-old currently sees his skins swimming away due to the earnings crisis of the foals and has therefore signed on behalf of the Black and Yellow as a precautionary measure. In fact, the starting position for the Hecking protected has deteriorated dramatically in recent weeks with regard to the premier class.
Today’s Football Betting Prediction Gladbach vs Freiburg
As fourth in the table, the lead over Eintracht Frankfurt (5th) has shrunk to three points, so that the hosts could possibly slip on a Europa League rank next weekend. Despite the importance of the encounter between Gladbach and Freiburg, a reliable prediction on the home side is quite difficult after the recent three home games were all lost. In addition, the sports club conceded only a single bankruptcy in the past six matchdays and can play very liberated at eleven points ahead of the relegation relegation place. In direct duel Gladbach vs Freiburg imply the odds of the bookmakers nevertheless a clear favorite role of the Elf from the Lower Rhine, which is at least with the recommendation in the first match of the 26th match day of the Bundesliga, for 24 years at home no longer against the Breisgauer the short straw.
Gladbach – Statistics & Current Form
With three wins and 5-0 gates, the return round kick off of Borussia from Mönchengladbach was almost perfect. It was all the more surprising that the team of Dieter Hecking from the subsequent four encounters only a single point (in Frankfurt) and also got three times before the home crowd, the limits were shown. Considering that the foals have been able to win all nine home games in the current season, the mentioned misery with three bankruptcies in front of their own fans, in which keeper Yann Sommer not only conceded a total of 11 goals, but always at least three times behind had to grab, actually not explain. The away game last weekend in Mainz was therefore already assigned a trend-setting character, especially with Frankfurt and Leverkusen two form-strong teams lurking in the pursuer position, which would very much like to take the last Champions League rank (4th). The 1: 0 in the Opel Arena finally fell under the category “work victory”. Perhaps this “dirty” sense of achievement was necessary to initiate the turnaround and from then on to bring the performances from the first round back into the field.
The next compulsory task awaits the team from the Niederrhein on Friday evening, when the SC Freiburg will be a guest in the Borussia-Park. On the paper, there is a good deal of evidence that a tip on Gladbach vs Freiburg paid for the hosts, after all, the former German champions against any other Bundesliga has such a long series without defeat show as against the sports club. For 14 direct duels (nine wins, five draws) Borussia has not lost against the next opponent. Nevertheless, a close affair is to be expected, since the Breisgauer certainly act out of a compact defensive and the last form weak diamond offensive will cause problems. For the start of the 26th game day is between Gladbach and Freiburg a prediction on a game of patience for the Hecking Elf therefore quite obvious.
Statistically, there are enough arguments to support this assessment. For example, the Gladbach have scored more than twice as many goals in the second half (31 versus 13). In addition, fell in eight of the previous nine home victories more hits after the break. In six of eight cases, it was even 0-0 after 45 minutes before a decision was made in the second round. In this respect, it seems plausible in any case to conclude bets that the net often wriggles again after the page break. Personally, Dieter Hecking can draw almost from full volume. Only Doucoure and Traore fall out due to injury. A small question mark is also behind the use of Matthias Ginter, for the Tony Jantschke would come as a substitute in question.
Expected formation of Gladbach:
↪ Summer – F. Johnson, Ginter, Elvedi, Wendt – Strobl – Zakaria, Hofmann – T. Hazard, Stindl, Plea
Last matches from Gladbach:
⚽ 09.03.2019 – Mainz vs Gladbach 0: 1 (Bundesliga)

⚽ 23.02.2019 – Gladbach vs. Wolfsburg 0: 3 (Bundesliga)

Freiburg – Statistics & Current Form
It is always fun to see Christian Streich beaming with joy after an emotional victory, wildly cheering and running across the field completely uncontrolled. The sympathetic football instructor, who recently extended his contract with SC Freiburg and will be celebrating his nine-year service anniversary in the “Black Forest” in 2020, also had every reason to be enthusiastic last weekend because despite a 1-0 defeat by Hertha BSC they won Breisgauer their home game against the capital club with 2: 1 and thus probably got rid of all relegation worries. Eleven points ahead of the relegation place are a comfortable cushion, which under normal circumstances should be sufficient to also offer first division football in the upcoming season. The fact that the South Germans play a solid round on the bottom line, is also clear from the increased goal odds. At the moment, the White-Red have 36 goals in their portfolio, which is 25 more than in 24 matches. At home, the string-Elf comes to 25 hits in 13 games (almost two per game), while the offensive in foreign countries with far eleven goals in twelve matches is far less harmless way.
Among other things, therefore, the tabular Wolves on Friday evening will primarily be careful to keep the back zero and front to come with continuous playing time, either in Umschaltspiel or over a standard situation, to succeed. In four of the youngest six first halves, the Breisgauer managed to remain clean, at least until the break whistle. Overall, keeper Alexander Schwolow conceded only 16 goals until minute 45, but their 25 from minute 46. The goal-yield is absolutely identical with 18 hits in both rounds. Due to the expected progress of the game and the fact that the Sport-Club scored ten points away from home (two wins, four draws, six bankruptcies), Gladbach and Freiburg have a tip that in the second half the ball crosses the goal line more often than in the first round, an appealing value.
Gulde, Koch, Lienhart, Kübler, Höfler, Sallai, Kath and Kleindienst are currently providing a bulging hospital in the Schwarzwälder. Christian Streich does not allow excuses that are aimed at the tense staff situation, but anyway. Instead, the native of Swabia makes a virtue out of necessity and recently led, for example, with Keven Schlotterbeck the next young actor to the Bundesliga level. The currently toughest competitor in the center-back position is just his two years younger brother Nico, who made his debut for the first team in the previous week.
Expected formation of Freiburg:
↪ Schwolow – P. Stenzel, K. Schlotterbeck, Heintz, C. Gunter – Frantz, Abrashi – Haberer, Grifo – Niederlechner, Petersen
Last matches from Freiburg:
⚽ 09.03.2019 – Freiburg vs. Germany Hertha 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 02.03.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Freiburg 2: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 23.02.2019 – Freiburg vs. Augsburg 5: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 16.02.2019 – Schalke Vs. Freiburg 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 09.02.2019 – Freiburg vs. Wolfsburg 3: 3 (Bundesliga)
