MORE FRUSTRATION FOR GLADBACH
Gladbach have at least snapped a three-game losing streak at home but it's another frustrating night for them in front of their own supporters. The point they have earned moves them up to third in the table - at least temporarily - but it's Freiburg coach Christian Streich who is smiling at full-time. The visitors struck first on 10 minutes with a nice move from back to front that ended with former Gladbach player Vincenzo Grifo sweeping home in off the post from the edge of the area. Alasanne Plea soon equalised with his 11th league goal of the season - and second of 2019 - but the Foals couldn't break down a stubborn Freiburg rearguard after that.

HOME FANS NERVOUS
Freiburg build an attack patiently that ends with Gondorf having his curling effort from the edge of the box deflected behind.
VISITORS DIGGING IN
Gladbach have the bulk of possession but Freiburg are still defending well. Can they hold on for a point?
GOOD BREAK FOR FREIBURG
Substitute Jerome Gondorf is involved as he plays in Gondorf down the right and his low cross is just about gathered by Sommer in the Gladbach goal.
HAZARD FIRES OVER
Gladbach's Belgian star Hazard tries his luck and connects well with a long-range effort which fizzes just over the top.
After chances for Wendt and Hofmann, Freiburg are doing a good job of taking the sting out of the game.
GLADBACH GETTING CLOSER
Hofmann hits a shot straight at the keeper from a narrow angle inside the area after being played in by Lars Stindl.
CHANCE FOR GLADBACH! Hazard drives over a sweet cross and Nico Elvedi, the matchwinner against Mainz last week, can only glance it well wide of goal.

BUSY FIRST START FOR SCHLOTTERBECK
Centre-back Keven Scholtterbeck is making his first start for Freiburg tonight and he looks composed. He played a lovely pass forward through the lines for the opening goal, but it looks like he'll have plenty of defending to do for the rest of the game.
BETTER FROM GLADBACH
The home team are playing at a better tempo as they try to force the issue in the second half.
A TIGHT FIRST HALF
An opening 45 minutes of few chances comes to an end. Freiburg have defended smartly and have looked comfortable and threatening at times when they get on the ball. Hazard and Plea combined for the equaliser, but Gladbach haven’t been able to get those two on the ball enough – with Jonas Hofmann bright for the home side. Freiburg boss Christian Streich will definitely be the happier of the two managers.
FREIBURG TOUGH TO CRACK
Gladbach have plenty of possession at the moment but are struggling to create chances since that well-worked equaliser.
PLEA LEVELS FOR GLADBACH
The lead doesn't last long. Zakaria plays in Thorgan Hazard down the right, and his cutback from the byline is slammed home by Alasssane Plea.
GOAL!1 : 1
GOAL!0 : 1
A LIVELY START
Zakaria had an early shot over the bar for the home side, but Gladbach are looking to threaten on the counter.
REVENGE FOR GLADBACH?
When these sides last met in October, Freiburg made the most of home advantage with a 3-1 win. Gladbach won last year's corresponding fixture by the same scoreline, and will be hoping for a similar outcome this evening.
FREIBURG SEEKING THIRD AWAY WIN
Freiburg are on a good run of form, having hammered Augsburg and beaten Hertha Berlin in their last two home matches. The visitors lost 2-0 at Bayer Leverkusen on their last away trip, however, and they have failed to win on the road in 2019.
CAN GLADBACH CONSOLIDATE FOURTH?
The Foals won each of their first nine home games this season but have lost their last three at Borussia-Park. They'll be looking to return to winning ways here to stay in the top four, with Eintracht Frankfurt just three points further behind in fifth place.
