November 20, 2010: Freiburg 1-2 Borussia Dortmund

When these teams last met, Mats Hummels scored a rare own goal early to hand Freiburg the lead. Dortmund fought hard for the equaliser and finally earned it through substitute Robert Lewandowski, who nodded in a cross 15 minutes from full time. Der BVB competed their comeback three minutes later under fortuitous circumstances as Mensur Mujdza turned the ball into his own net.

Players to Watch
Mario Götze
Mario Götze

Lewandowski will be the primary target for Dortmund, but the creator will be Gotze. The 18-year old was brilliant last week and should have scored and assisted several goals, but the finishing of himself and his teammates disappointed. He will be keen to rebound on Sunday.
Papiss Cissé
Papiss Cissé
Position: Striker
Squad Number: 9

As the Bundesliga's leading scorer to date, Cisse is definitely the man to watch up front for Freiburg. The Senegalese striker has scored 20 goals this season, and does not need many chances to put the ball in the net. If anyone is to score for Freiburg, he is the man to do it.
Neither team enters the game in particularly great form, and this one will likely be decided based on the form of lone strikers Papiss Cisse and Robert Lewandowski. The Freiburg man has been the more dangerous hit-man, but the latter can expect to have better service. With all things considered, the hosts should take three points.
