xG SUGGESTS THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GOALS

information
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).
Flekken and Sommer and some superb defending has kept this at 0-0.

FREIBURG FINDING SOME SPACE TO SHOOT AROUND THE BOX

The home side are enjoying their best spell of dominance of the match. Christian Günter again forcing Sommer into a good save - this time from his left at an acute angle.

JEONG FORCES A GREAT SAVE FROM SOMMER

The South Korean has looked lively since entering the fray and he finds an opening to shoot, which forces Yann Sommer into a very good save.

CAN EITHER TEAM FIND A WINNER?

It's a very entertaining 0-0 draw so far, but a goal in these late stages would probably be enough for all three points. Both defences in terrific form today.

Lienhart is tripped but before the referee blows the whistle for a foul Gladbach break and Stindl sends an effort just wide. He should have hit the target from there but it wouldn't have counted.

HALF-TIME

Gladbach just have the edge but it's hard to separate these two sides so far. Half time at the Black Forest but a thoroughly enjoyable encounter so far.

CANCEL CULTURE

Despite no goals, both teams have done a terrific job of cancelling each other out so far. Two minutes of added time here.

PASSING AROUND TO GREAT EFFECT

Gladbach have impressively stealing the ball back even when they lost it and have been very smart with their ball possession and passing.

NEUHAUS CAN'T CONTINUE

That tackle has left a bruise for Florian Neuhaus and while he did get back up, he cannot continue in this one. Nathan Ngoumou takes his place but that's a big blow for Gladbach.

OUCH!

Neuhaus and Kyereh clash following a chaotic corner. They're both stretching for the ball and it's accidental but it's a nasty crunching tackle. Both players are now back up after a few moments on the ground.

ANOTHER CHANCE FOR FREIBURG

Grifo sends a beautiful cross into the box, but Gregoritsch just misses the header. He claims a handball but the referee gives a firm shake of the head on that appeal from the Austrian.

TWO APIECE FOR THE STRIKERS

Good chances for both teams' strikers but both need to be a little bit more clinical if they want to find an opening.

Every touch, every pass, every shot. End to end stuff here in the Black Forest.

END TO END

Almost an identical to Thuram's breakaway, Kyereh is through for Freiburg but his effort is tame and Sommer saves. That could have been a first goal for the Ghana international on his first start for the hosts.

THURAM ALMOST FINDS THE NET

Gladbach have looked dangerous on the break and finally find a way through with Thuram but his shot is denied by Flekken in goal and put out for a corner.

WHISKERS AWAY FROM WEIGL

Bensebaini sends in a cross for Julian Weigl diving for the header but missing the ball by a fraction. Lively start to this fixture so far.

It's an early chance for the hosts as Ritsu Doan curls a left food shot just wide of Sommer's net. Close!

TIME TO GO!

Union have set the benchmark for Freiburg to reach. Can they jump back to the top for a second week in a row? We're underway in the Black Forest.
Kick-off!

WINNING AWAY

Away trips are Gladbach's forte. They are unbeaten in their last six Bundesliga matches on the road, dating back to a 3-1 Rhine derby loss in Cologne back in April.

FREIBURG HEADING BACK TO THE TOP?

Freiburg spent the week atop the Bundesliga table but while results over the weekend have fallen in their favour, they need a win today to return to the top.
