Both sides were unable to find more goals for the remaining stages of the half, despite the lively start to the encounter.

However, the home side restored their lead in the 57th minute through Gian-Luca Waldschmidt, who found the back of the net with a neat finish from close range.

The visitors responded by introducing by introducing Florian Neuhaus, who has already registered four assists in the current campaign.

Gladbach threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser in the closing stages, but it was Freiburg who got the next goal with Lucas Holer firing into an empty net from the halfway line after Yann Sommer had ventured forward.

The win sees Freiburg move up to eighth spot, while Gladbach remain in second spot, three points behind Dortmund.
