Freiburg will host Werder Bremen at the Europa-Park-Stadion on Saturday afternoon in another round of the 2022-23 Bundesliga campaign.
The home side have had a solid start to their season both domestically and on the continental stage. However, they were thrashed 5-0 by defending champions Bayern Munich in their last league outing but bounced back in midweek to pick up a 2-1 comeback win over St. Pauli in the second round of the DFB-Pokal.
Freiburg sit third in the Bundesliga table with 18 points picked so far and will now be looking to build on their cup victory at the weekend.
Werder Bremen have also performed very well this season and currently sit in the top half of the Bundesliga table. They were, however, beaten 2-0 by Mainz in their last Bundesliga game before getting knocked out of the DFB-Pokal after losing on penalties to 2. Bundesliga side Paderborn.
The visitors sit ninth in the league table with 15 points from 10 matches. They will be looking to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track when they play this weekend.
