Freiburg are still without joint-top scorer Nils Petersen and without him, they’ve won just 10% of 21 matches since the start of last season and failed to score more than a solitary goal in 20 of those games.
In fact, the hosts are only W1-D5-L5 from 11 such matches this term as they averaged just 0.82 goals per game, with the sole success coming over second-from-bottom Nurnberg.
Dortmund don’t tend to keep too many clean sheets, but regardless of whether they manage that here they should have too much firepower down the other end.
The Black and Yellows have won 13 of 15 unbeaten encounters with Freiburg since 2010/11, producing an aggregate score of 42-7, and with the title race very much still on, they’ll be no let up from Lucian Favre’s charges.
Real Betis have just the solitary win in five outings and it’s noticeable they lost each of their three meetings with top-half sides during this period.
In fact, they’ve trailed at both half-time and full-time in six of their last eight against such teams, and they welcome a Valencia side that are W12-D7-L1 over 20 matches in all competitions since Christmas (prior to their Thursday night second leg with Villarreal in the Europa League).
Marcelino’s men won eight of the last 11 of these, including victories over the likes of Real Madrid, Sevilla and a resurgent Athletic Bilbao over this period, all of whom are above Real Betis in the table, while they also beat Betis themselves in the Copa del Rey.
The hosts have lost three of their last four on home turf across all tournaments and these teams appear set to end the season in contrasting styles.
PSG have been doing their best to throw the title away over the last three games as they could only draw at home to Strasbourg before suffering defeats away at Lille and Nantes.
However, the destination of the trophy isn’t really in doubt and it should be third time lucky for them here as they’re back on home turf against Monaco.
Such is their domestic dominance that the recent draw with Strasbourg was the first time they’ve dropped points at the Parc des Princes this term, and only the third time since the start of last season – with the other two exceptions in their final two home games last term after the title was already sewn up.
Monaco have done well to pull seven points clear of the drop zone given the position they were in earlier on in the campaign, but the Parisians have won each of their last eight head-to-head meetings across all tournaments, netting at least four times in five of these games including a pair of 4-0 wins this term alone.
