Borussia Dortmund will be looking to put back-to-back losses behind them when they take on Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.
BVB suffered a shock 2-0 loss at Augsburg in the league last weekend and went down 3-2 to Bayern Munich in the DFL-Supercup on Wednesday.
Freiburg are better placed in the table after the first two rounds of fixtures, sitting a point ahead of their opponents after winning one and drawing one so far
Dortmund did well to recover from two goals down inside the opening 32 minutes of their midweek clash against Bayern, only for Joshua Kimmich to score a late winner.
It is now successive losses for Lucien Favre‘s men following last week’s poor display at Augsburg, with Felix Uduokhai and Daniel Caligiuri netting either side of half time.
BVB may have defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 3-0 on the opening weekend, but they have lost three of their last five league matches stretching back into last season.
That is quite simply not good enough for Dortmund and questions are again being asked of head coach Favre, who really could do with all three points on home soil this weekend.
Dortmund have a very good record in this fixture, going 18 top-flight matches without defeat against Freiburg – their longest unbeaten run against any Bundesliga side.
Borussia Dortmund possible starting lineup:
Burki; Can, Hummels, Akanji,Meunier, Bellingham, Witsel, Guerreiro, Sancho, Reyna, Haaland
Freiburg possible starting lineup:
