Wrapping up the week with two friendlies against Freiburg

Wrapping up the week with two friendlies against Freiburg
Today's session focused on team tactics.

The Foals started their final training session in Jerez de la Frontera on Thursday. Borussia will play two friendlies against SC Freiburg on Friday (13:00 CET and 15:00 CET).

The team’s sixth and final training session of the week in Jerez de la Frontera was focused on tactics. Head coach Marco Rose ran the team through various plays, with three teams facing each other on a shortened pitch. Keanan Bennetts and Charalambos Makridis did not take part in the session, as they will be in action with the Borussia U23s in their friendly against third-division side Würzburger Kickers today (14:00 CET).

Marco Rose’s side will also be picking up some game time shortly. Tomorrow the Foals will face off against SC Freiburg (currently eighth in the Bundesliga) in two back-to-back friendlies. The matches against SCF – who started their winter training camp on Monday in Sotogrande, Andalusia – will take place at 13:00 CET and 15:00 CET on the grounds of the Montecastillo Barceló Golf Club.

“We will try different things during both friendlies,” said Marco Rose. “We will get the lads to play 90 minutes so that they get used to it again. As was the case against Heracles, they will go into the match a bit tired as we have been putting them through their paces in training these past few days.”
