Borussia Monchengladbach are looking to register back-to-back Bundesliga victories when they visit SC Freiburg on Saturday afternoon (2.30pm kick-off UK time).
Gladbach returned to winning ways last time out at Schalke 04, running out 4-1 winners, having picked up just one point across their previous two league outings. However, they did taste defeat again in the Champions League, losing 3-2 to Inter Milan. As a result, Marco Rose’s side may have one eye on next week’s crucial game against Real Madrid.
Their hosts, meanwhile, are on an eight-game winless run having last tasted victory in mid-September at Stuttgart (2-3). Will they be able to cause an upset or do the visitors take momentum into next week?

Players to watch:
- SC Freiburg: As things stand, SC Freiburg are potentially headed towards a relegation battle, with just one win to their name after nine league matches but things can quickly change if a regular goal provider emerges. Nils Petersen is their leading scorer on four goals, but one behind him is Italian winger Vincenzo Grifo who also has two assists to shout about. This makes the ex-Gladbach man Freiburg’s most productive player and he will be champing at the bit to score against his former club. Even more so given Grifo returned to scoring ways last time out against Augsburg having gone three Bundesliga games without netting.
- Borussia Monchengladbach: Momentum is a big thing in professional sports and, after going seven Bundesliga matches without scoring, Gladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus will be attempting to find the net for a third consecutive game this weekend. Neuhaus, a regular starter under Marco Rose, broke his duck for the season when he netted in a 1-1 draw with Augsburg before following that up with another strike as the Foals ran out 4-1 winners against Schalke 04 last weekend. Neuhaus also created another goal as he rounded off his best performance to date this season.
