Freiburg will host Borussia Monchengladbach at the Europa-Park-Stadion on Sunday afternoon in the sixth gameweek of the German Bundesliga.
The hosts will return to domestic action this weekend after picking up a 2-1 win over Qarabag in theirUEFA Europa League opener on Thursday. They picked up a 3-2 comeback win over Bayer Leverkusen in their last league outing and are full of confidence at the moment. Freiburg are atop the Bundesliga standings with 12 points from five games.
Monchengladbach, meanwhile, have had mixed results in the league this season. They suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend, losing 1-0 to Mainz and will feel they deserved more from the game despite being reduced to 10 men before the hour mark.
The visitors are ninth in the league table with eight points from five games. They will now look to shake off their latest result and get their campaign back on track.
