Freiburg resisted Qarabag and prevailed 2:1 in their Europa League group opener. They have a phenomenal start of the match with two goals in first 15 minutes and continued the superb form of 4 wins in a row in all competitions. It’s the best start in the clubs history. Borussia Monchengladbach lost against Mainz (0:1) at home. Today, they have many key absence in the last line and coach Farke can’t count on Nico Elvedi (5/1), Ko Itakura (5/0 suspended), and Alassane Plea (5/1). Freiburg is in a good mood and despite the fatigue, knows how to manage the matches. Key absences in defense for Monchengladbach will be a big problem, while they have a really bad tradition at Europa-Park Stadion without a win from 2007.
