Two teams with high hopes of breaking into the Bundesliga’s top four meet this Saturday at Europa-Park when Freiburg play host to Werder Bremen. The two teams are six places apart in the table, but only three points separate them, and a win for the visitors could mean a leap in quality for Freiburg.
Freiburg played DFB-Pokal in midweek and were very fortunate to defeat St. Pauli in a 2-1 win with a 93rd minute goal from Matthias Ginter and a goal from Michael Gregoritsch in the 119th minute. Christian Streich made his feelings known at halftime, as with his team trailing 1-0, he made four substitutions at once, with all four players coming on as starters.
Gregoritsch was the hero for Freiburg, and can now focus on Werder, his favorite Bundesliga team, as he has scored the most Bundesliga goals with six. While Freiburg beat second-tier opposition, Bremen were knocked out of the cup, losing on penalties to in-form Paderborn.
Despite coming from 2-0 down and forcing a penalty shootout, the man who led the comeback with a goal a minute after coming on and an assist, Leonardo Bittencourt, missed the decisive penalty and lost 5-4. This was the first away defeat of the season, but Werder’s away form became their saving grace in the league, with 11 of their 15 points coming from away games.
Those numbers represent the best points per game ratio of any Bundesliga team away from home so far this season, and they will be hoping to bounce back from their midweek defeat, as a win could take them into the top four. Previous meetings suggest that could also be a real possibility, as they have lost only twice in their last 13 visits to Freiburg, winning eight times.
