On the German football scene, there’s a constant quest for perfection, and Freiburg’s German-Nigerian goalkeeper, Noah Atubolu, is no exception. As Match Day 10 of the Bundesliga approaches, the question is when Atubolu can finally keep his goal safe.
On November 4th, Freiburg is set to face Borussia Mönchengladbach at home. Both clubs currently find themselves in the middle of the table, at the moment showing no significant ambitions for securing a place in European competitions next season.
This season Atubolu has played all nine matches in the Bundesliga and he’s yet to record that elusive clean sheet, having conceded a total of 16 goals. With a strong desire to change the narrative, Atubolu faces a challenging test against Mönchengladbach.
Freiburg’s recent performance has been far from consistent, marked by a scarcity of draws and two consecutive losses after two games against the championship contenders from Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich.
Mönchengladbach finished in the top 10 in the previous season and currently holds the 11th position. They come off a recent victory against Heidenheim, amassing a total of 9 points and still the relegation zone looks closer than the European spot.
One factor adding intrigue to this upcoming clash is the offensive prowess of both teams. In eight out of the last nine matches involving Mönchengladbach, the total goals scored exceeded 2.5. Freiburg has shown a similar trend in their last three games.
As the anticipation builds, the odds of Noah Atubolu maintaining a clean sheet while Freiburg secures a victory, as indicated by the 1xBet, stand at 4.1.
