- Midfielder Vincenzo Grifo gave the hosts a surprise lead after just six minutes
- Roland Sallai doubled the lead after the break but a Yannik Keitel OG made it 2-1
- Freiburg held on despite late pressure and now lie second in the Bundesliga
SC Freiburg rose to second in the Bundesliga table on Saturday thanks to a 2-1 win over a Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund dominated possession but failed to convert their chances on the league’s second weekend of play.
Vincenzo Grifo rocked the visitors early, putting Freiburg ahead with a stunning free kick in the sixth minute.
Despite Dortmund keeping possession for long spells, they found themselves two down eight minutes into the second half when Roland Sallai slammed the ball home from close range.
Dortmund were thrown a lifeline when midfielder Yannik Keitel steered a low cross past his own keeper in the 59th minute.
But the Freiburg rearguard stood firm to repel Erling Haaland and company as they hung on to win.
