Borussia Mönchengladbach drew 0-0 from SC Freiburg at the end of the sixth Bundesliga matchday. The shoe continues to pinch in the last third. With Florian Neuhaus, a top performer could also fail.
On the part of the foals, the lack of power in the last third continues to cause concern. In the absence of Alassane Plea only Marcus Thuram promised a real goal threat, assisted by the two playmakers Lars Stindl and Jonas Hofmann. All in all - and head coach Daniel Farke criticized this over the entire transfer summer - that's just not enough offensive power. Borussia is missing a real goalscorer. To make matters worse, another regular player threatens to fail in Florian Neuhaus. After a collision, the central midfielder had to be replaced after just 34 minutes and could no longer perform cleanly. In Gladbach we now have to wait for the diagnosis and keep our fingers crossed that there is no structural damage in Neuhaus's knee. Head coach Daniel Farke had little hope after the game: "Unfortunately, Florian has a cruciate ligament injury hoped that the medical examinations would come to a different conclusion," he explained to DAZN. At SC Freiburg, Kevin Schade celebrated his comeback and thus his season debut. The lightning-fast attacker has so far been out with a pulled abdominal muscle.
