Bundesliga: Freiburg wins 2-1 against Mainz

Dhe series of successes Sc freiburg continues after the international break. With the 2:1 (2:0) home win in the Bundesliga against FSV Mainz 05, the sports club moved up to second place on Saturday. Only the worse goal difference prevented Freiburg from regaining the lead in the table that they had already held after the fifth matchday. Mainz, on the other hand, remained without a win for the third time in a row and is in midfield.

Equipped with a lot of self-confidence, the Freiburg dominated the game over long stretches. The Rheinhessen lacked penetrating power, especially in the first half. The two newcomers Michael Gregorych (3rd minute) and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (37th) secured the next three points for the Europa League participants. Aarón’s goal after the break was not enough for the Rheinhessen (52′).

The Freiburg conceded only one defeat in eleven competitive games. In the DFB-Pokal, they progressed one round against 1. FC Kaiserslautern and the team from also started on the European stage Christian Streich with two wins. Accordingly, the hosts went about it this time in their home arena. And although there are six “English weeks” before the World Cup break, SC coach Streich has not changed his team for the fourth time in a row. There had never been anything like this during the 57-year-old’s tenure.

“Happy fans and good guys”

His opponent, Bo Svensson, saw a need for action after the rather despondent appearances of his team in the past. The Dane changed his starting eleven four times. Jonathan Burkardt returned after recovering from injury and Anthony Caci, whose goal saved at least one point before the break against Hertha BSC (1-1), made his starting eleven debut. In addition, Anton Stach should boost the offensive game and Danny da Costa should get the strong left attacking side of Freiburg under control.
