What was the score in the last meeting between Freiburg & Paderborn? Paderborn 1-3 Freiburg
THE TEAM NEWS
- Freiburg moved back up to seventh in the table courtesy of a 2-1 win at Mainz last Saturday, registering only their second win in seven matches.
- Hofler is expected to retake his place in midfield ahead of Abrashi following a one-match ban but otherwise it is likely to be an unchanged line-up.
- Waldschmidt and Schlotterbeck have recovered from the illnesses that ruled them out last weekend but they will have to settle for places on the bench.
Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Schwolow; Gulde, Koch, Heintz; Schmid, Haberer, Hofler, Gunter; Holer, Petersen, Kwon Chang-Hoon
Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Jeong Woo-Yeong (International duty)
- Paderborn are three points adrift at the bottom after their 4-1 loss at home to Bayer Leverkusen last Sunday and they have won just once away from home this season.
- Coach Baumgart revealed in Thursday’s press conference that Jans and Collins will occupy the full-back slots, with the latter returning from suspension.
- Striker Srbeny will be assessed after being forced off on his debut against Leverkusen and fellow new signing Fridjonsson is unlikely to be involved yet.
Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Zingerle; Jans, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins; Proger, Gjasula, Vasiliadis, Antwi-Adjei; Michel, Mamba
Doubtful: Srbeny (Injured)
Freiburg have won three of their last four Bundesliga games at the Schwarzwald-Stadion, with the sole defeat coming against Bayern. Basement boys Paderborn have lost 10 of their last 14 away games in the top flight, so the hosts should claim the three points again.
