THURAM'S DOUBLE

Marcus Thuram has scored both goals to turn this game around, the first half a tidy finish from inside the area and the second a fine solo goal after taking the ball round Müller before slotting into the empty net.

WHAT A CHANCE!

Somehow, Freiburg aren't 2-0 ahead here. A cross from the right finds Höler at the back post after a flick at the near post. His flick at goal is cleared off his own line by Sommer with a fantastic reaction save.
41'

CAUSING PROBLEMS AGAIN

Freiburg are continuing to find joy down the wings here, with Sallai crossing for Höler from the right this time. Gladbach are able to clear with the cross too high in the end.
36'

CHANCES AT BOTH ENDS

We've seen both attacks have chances on goal so far, but the better of those have fallen for Freiburg and they've taken the all-important first.

FINE WORK AGAIN

Höler's pass in behind the Gladbach defence finds Santamaria, who looks to play a pass across for Sallai at the back post but the Gladbach defence recovers with Beyer clearing that chance behind. Freiburg are flying here.

KEEPING IT WIDE

Freiburg have been fantastic so far both in playing out from the back, and making the Borussia-Park pitch as wide as possible with the 3-4-3 formation giving Streich's side numbers out wide.

SALLAI ON FIRE

The Gladbach defence is struggling to keep hold of Freiburg's goalscorer.
22'

BIG CHANCE FOR SALLAI!

Once again Freiburg break down the right with Sallai exchanging a one-two with Demirovic before running in on goal. He's almost surprised to have the space to run at goal from the right and he shoots at Sommer from seven yards out, but Sommer makes a big one-handed save.
20'

FINDING THEIR WAY

Another shot blocked from Gladbach as Plea battles with Schlotterbeck to earn space for a shot on his right. This one is deflected up for Müller to simply grab on its way forward.
18'

THURAM BLOCKED

The Frenchman has been quiet so far, but has his first shot of the game here as he cuts in from the left. But the Freiburg defence is on top of things and block his shot.
15'

KEEPING THINGS WIDE

Freiburg are finding their flow here with another swift counter, this time down the right. Schmid's flick to Sallai allows him to run on and cross for Höler at the back post, but he can't angle his sliding shot on target from close range.
10'

FREIBURG IN FRONT!

Against the run of play, Freiburg take the lead with a swift break. It's Günter who plays Demirovic in down the left and he does superbly to spot Sallai in space at the back post, and then find him with a fine ball across the area for the Hungarian to slot home.

TEAM NEWS - GLADBACH

Gladbach have had to change half of their back four for this one: Ramy Bensebaini is suspended, so veteran Oscar Wendt begins at left-back, while central defender Nico Elvedi sustained a calf injury in training on Friday and is replaced by 20-year-old Jordan Beyer. Further up the field, Jonas Hofmann is unavailable so Hannes Wolf is given a chance to show what he can do from the off in attacking midfield.

TEAM NEWS - FREIBURG

The visitors are without playmaker Vincenzo Grifo today, which is a significant setback as the Italy international has seven goals and six assists this season. He's replaced by 21-year-old Germany U-21 international Yannik Keitel, who makes his first league start of the campaign.

GLADBACH STARTING XI

Sommer - Lainer, Beyer, Ginter, Wendt - Kramer, Neuhaus - Wolf, Stindl (c), Thuram - Plea

GLADBACH SUBS

Sippel, Lang, Herrmann, Zakaria, Traore, Lazaro, Jantschke, Embolo

ROSE: “WE WANT TO CLIMB ABOVE FREIBURG”

“They’re a well organised unit and every player puts in hard yards,” said Gladbach coach Marco Rose. “They have good individual quality too. They're narrowly ahead of us, but we want to climb back above them. The lads who weren't on international duty have trained well. We've worked a lot on group tactics. We only had 10 outfield players here.”

STREICH: “I CAN SEE IT BEING AN ATTACKING GAME”

“We have expectations of ourselves to play well in Gladbach. We’re ambitious. We’ve been a bit inconsistent recently though. Gladbach won in Schalke and they’ll do everything they can to get another win now. It won’t be an easy game for us, but it won’t be easy for them either. It’ll be exciting. I can see it being an attacking game, a good match. The reverse fixture was good. The way we played in the first half of that match was our best performance this season.”

HEAD-TO-HEAD

Freiburg marginally have the better record in this fixture, having won 13 and drawn 13 of the 37 league meetings with Gladbach, who have taken maximum points 11 times. The teams drew 2-2 earlier this season, but the Foals have won four of the last five against the Black Forest side on home turf, drawing the other.

HOT AND COLD

Like Gladbach, Freiburg have had some disappointing results recently, losing three of their last five matches. However, they have picked up a couple of wins too, overcoming Bayer Leverkusen and, on Matchday 26, Augsburg.

CORNER TURNED?

Gladbach ended a seven-game winless run in their last outing before the international break, running out 3-0 winners over Schalke. That left Marco Rose’s side in 10th place ahead of Matchday 27, four points behind Bayer Leverkusen in sixth. Can they take another step towards European qualification today?

THE STAKES

Freiburg’s primary objective every season is to avoid relegation. Currently on 37 points, a win here would take them to the 40-point mark that usually guarantees top-flight security. They’ve been far better than merely ‘surviving’ this term, however, and remain in the running for a top-six finish. That is Gladbach’s target too as they bid to put some difficult weeks behind them.
