The expected Gladbach line-up against SC Freiburg

After the first defeat of the season against Mainz 05, Borussia Mönchengladbach has a difficult away game on the agenda. Late on Sunday afternoon (kick-off 5:30 p.m.) the foals will be guests at SC Freiburg. Against the Sport-Club, who have won all of the last four competitive games, Daniel Farke has to rebuild his defense.

With Christian Streich's team, a really big chunk is waiting, emphasized the Gladbach coach at the press conference on Friday. "Playing away there is definitely one of the most difficult tasks in the Bundesliga at the moment." For Farke it is no coincidence that the Breisgau team is at the top of the table after five games. "The club has developed excellently in recent years," praised Hütter's successor.

Freiburg recently played at a top level and got off to an excellent start with twelve points. "This is a team that always plays with high intensity and is extremely strong at home," said Farke, who also warned of the club's dangerous set pieces: "That's why it was and is one of the main training areas in preparation for the game." It is important for his team to allow as few standard situations as possible. "We want to put in a good performance and return to Mönchengladbach with points if possible," explained the trainer. "We know that when we call up our topics, we are absolutely competitive."

On the last day of the game, the foals not only had to cope with their first defeat of the season (0:1). With Alassane Plea (muscle fiber tear in the adductor area) and Nico Elvedi (overstretching of the front lateral ligament), two players were also injured. New signing Ko Itakura was also sent off after an emergency brake with a straight red and is missing in Freiburg. "Nico Elvedi will most likely be out," explained Farke. "So we're missing a player or two at the moment, but I'm not complaining about that. I have confidence in our entire squad." At least there is positive news from Stefan Lainer, who has returned to team training after a forced ten-day break.

TW: Yann Sommer - the 33-year-old goalkeeper is between the posts as usual.RV: Joe Scally - the young American takes over the right side of defence.IV: Marvin Friedrich - the ex-Berliner is expected to be in the starting XI for the suspended Itakura rücken.IV: Ramy Bensebaini - With Christoph Kramer and Julian Weigl, Farke has two defensive midfielders who can also play as central defenders. However, it is more likely that Bensebaini will move from the left side of defense to the Elvedi position if the Swiss fails.LV: Luca Netz - If Bensebaini is needed in the center of defence, Netz starts as a left-back.ZM: Christoph Kramer - The world champion should start again from the start accrue Newcomer Weigl, on the other hand, will probably have to be patient for the time being.ZM: Manu Koné - The 21-year-old is expected to be a little more offensive than Kramer. RA: Jonas Hofmann - The national player should start again on the right flank. OM: Florian Neuhaus - Neuhaus is expected to start again as a tenth. LA: Lars Stindl - The captain could move into the starting eleven for the injured Plea, even if the left winger is not Stindl's prime role. Hannes Wolf is the name of the alternative.MS: Marcus Thuram – With three goals, Thuram is currently Borussia's top scorer.

Despite one or the other failure, there is nothing to shake about the 4-2-3-1 game system.
