Freiburg vs Mainz
Date: Saturday, 01 October 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Europa-Park Stadion.
The recent form is looking very bright for Freiburg as they are on a five-game unbeaten streak. They will now welcome Mainz boss Bo Svensson and his men at Europa-Park Stadion for an early kick-off this weekend.
Following a 3-2 victory over Leverkusen earlier this month, Christian Streich‘s team have now finished their last two games in a goalless draw.
However, the primary reason behind this is that Christian Streich changed the team formation three times in his last three matches.
Moreover, they have only lost a single game this campaign. Also, they have overtaken defending champions Bayern Munich on the table ranking. Currently, they are only three points below league leaders Union Berlin.
On the other hand, Mainz made a great comeback against Hertha most recently. Anthony Caci scored the equaliser a few seconds from the full-time whistle.
Following this result, the team is in the eighth position on the league table. Also, they have won two of the last five matches.
Before facing Hertha, Mainz lost to Hoffenheim by 4-1. Alexander Hack will be available for selection in this upcoming fixture as he received a red card against Hoffenheim.
