Aussies Abroad: Borrello's Freiburg continue great Bundesliga start

Brandon Borrello's Freiburg are one point off leaders Bayern Munich after a come from behind 2-1 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Monday morning (AEST).

Caltex Socceroos attacker Borrello was an unused substitute as Christian Streich's side continued their best-ever start to a Bundesliga season.

Borrello's side went behind when Dusseldorf's Rouwen Hennings broke the deadlock on 42 minutes, however, Freiburg's Jonathan Schmid delivered a quickfire response on the stroke of half time.

Luca Waldschmidt secured the win in the 81st minute, ensuring Freiburg remain in third position, one point off leaders and reigning German champions Bayern.
