Freiburg maintained the fine spell of form making it tree straight Bundesliga affairs without a defeat on Friday. They went on to back up consecutive draws to beat the third-placed Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1 at home. Nils Petersen, Gianluca Waldschmidt and Lucas Holer were on the scoreline for the team led by Christian Streich.

They held leaders Koln to a 1-1 draw at home before beating St. Pauli 0-1 on the road at the weekend. Such run helped the team climb up to the 10th place in the 2. Bundesliga standings.
