FREIBURG HIT GLADBACH FOR SIX

A masterful first half from Freiburg was enough to put them out of sight of Gladbach within the first 45 minutes, and they take a huge away win to climb back up to fourth.

STREICH WANTS MORE

Given Christian Streich's body language, you would not think that the Freiburg coach is witnessing his side cruising to a 6-0 win at Gladbach.

TEN IN 73 MINUTES!

Another statistic that Gladbach will not be too happy about: the four goals they conceded against Cologne last weekend fell after the 55th minute. That means they conceded 10 goals in 73 minutes of Bundesliga action.

CLOCK TICKING DOWN

On the one side, Gladbach do not want to concede another, and Freiburg are happy enough to defend their lead. It seems like both teams are just waiting for the final whistle to end their misery/spark scenes of joy* *delete as applicable

Gladbach playing the ball around, trying to find a way through, but in a very cautious manner. They do not want to make a mistake and concede a seventh.

WATCH: ALL 6 FIRST-HALF GOALS FROM FREIBURG

Freiburg became only the second away team to take a 6-0 lead into half-time in a Bundesliga game after a devastating 45 minutes at Gladbach.

BREATH CAUGHT?

Don't forget there are another 45 minutes to come and while few would have predicted that first half, who's predicting a second-half fightback from the Foals? Stick with us!

NO STOPPAGE TIME

Unsurprisingly, no added time as Freiburg take a six-goal advantage in at the break. Yes, six goals to nil for the guests, who have been as efficient as you can get.

FREIBURG FOLLOW DORTMUND

Freiburg are only the second team to score six goals away from home in the first half of a Bundesliga game. Dortmund were the first, leading Schalke in 1964 on their way to a 6-2 win.

KONE CLOSE

A shot on target for Gladbach and work for Flekken to do, and he does it well to push Kone's effort away.

NOTHING NEW FOR ADI

This may seem pretty novel to most of us, but not so for Gladbach coach Adi Hütter. He lost 6-1 in Leverkusen in May 2019 when in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt - and all of those goals fell inside the opening 36 minutes.

FIRST SET TO FREIBURG

When Gladbach allured to Wimbledon in a Tweet, they probably did not expect the first set to last just 37 minutes, and Freiburg to win it.

FORLORN FOALS

xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
Even xG is pretty clear about Freiburg deserving to lead this game.

NOT THE FIRST TIME

FREIBURG TEAM NEWS

Three straight losses haven’t put off Christian Streich as he makes just one change to his team that was beaten 2-1 at Bochum a week ago. That sees a second centre-forward in Ermedin Demirovic play alongside Lucas Höler. Wooyeong Jeong is the man to make way.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

It’s two changes for Borussia from the side that was beaten 4-1 by Cologne in the derby. Stefan Lainer makes his first start since breaking his ankle at the start of the season, while Marcus Thuram features in the XI for the first time at all this campaign after his own injury problems. Patrick Herrmann and captain Lars Stindl drop to the bench. Yann Sommer wears the armband.
