|Dortmund host an in-form Freiburg for round 20 of the Bundesliga (BL). A Dortmund side not in their regular groove have opened the second half of the BL campaign with two draws. However, the second half at Hertha last round showed promise. “After the break, especially in the last 30 minutes, it was all attack from us. We should’ve actually taken the lead,” BVB player Ömer Toprak said after the game. Freiburg may have their hands full at Signal Iduna Park.
|Since 2011 these two teams have gone head to head 12 times in the BL, and history does not look pretty for the “Breisgau-Brasilianer” (Brazilians of Breisgau). Dortmund have absolutely dominated and won 11 of 12 and drawn one. To further emphasize matters, BVB have found the net 36 times (3.0 on average) whereas Freiburg have only scored four.
|For Freiburg there may be consolation in knowing that in terms of BL-form, they are second only to leaders Bayern Munich, with three wins and two draws in their last five games.
|Players to watch: With seven clean sheets so far this season (most in the league), Dortmund keeper Roman Burki has his eyes set on number eight.
|Freiburg top scorer Nils Petersen ended the first half of the BL campaign in very positive manner with six goals in three games, but has failed to find the net in the last two. Can he rediscover his excellent pre-winter-break scoring form?
|Stat attack: ‘Die Borussen’ need to clean up their home form if they intend to stay in the fight for second place. With one win, two draws and two losses the last five home games their home form is dead last in the league.
|With a league low collection of 17 yellow cards (but three reds!), BVB are arguably the best behaved team in the league (Freiburg 26+3).
