This weekend, the Bundesliga is back in action with a new slate of games. On January 13, SC Freiburg and Union Berlin will square off in a pivotal match at the Europa-Park Stadion.
Freiburg was briefly living in a winter wonderland after defeating Mainz 05, Wolfsburg, and Koln in back-to-back games last month. On December 20, the team traveled to freshly promoted Heidenheim, where Streich’s team wanted to make it four wins in a row. Two goals from Lucas Holer put Freiburg ahead twice, but Eren Dinkci and Tim Kleindienst from Heidenheim pulled one back, and in second-half injury time, Matthias Ginter unintentionally put the ball in his own net, giving the home team a 3-2 victory. Although SC Freiburg has improved recently, there are still a few problems that need to be resolved. In Bundesliga competition at the Europa-Park Stadion in 2023, only RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund prevailed over Freiburg.
This round, Union Berlin begins play narrowly outside the relegation zone and 3 points ahead of bottom-place Darmstadt. Before the break, the visitors had 7 points from 4 games after winning 2-0 against Koln. Prior to that run, Union had dropped 9 straight league games, so it was much-needed. However, given that the Berliners have been among the poorest traveling teams in the division, worries about their away performance still exist. 4 of their previous 6 road league games ended in a scoreless draw. In actuality, Union’s chances are doubtful because only 2 teams have registered fewer goals than them. Union Berlin cannot afford to make a mistake in the upcoming weeks since they have fallen short of expectations this season. In order to climb the league table, the Berliners will need to step up their game. They now have a lot of work to do in the upcoming weeks.
