SC Freiburg – VfL Bochum 1848

08/26/2022 | 8:30 p.m

With a win against VfL Bochum on Friday evening, SC Freiburg could jump to second place in the Bundesliga, at least temporarily. However, the Breisgauers have not won three home games in a row across the seasons. Opponent is the so far pointless bottom VfL Bochum.

For Freiburg, whose goalkeeper Mark Flekken is about to play his 50th Bundesliga game, Yannik Keitel will replace Maximilian Eggestein, who has just had his wrist operated on, in midfield. Further changes are unlikely in the team of SC coach Christian Streich.

The recently injured or battered Konstantinos Stafylidis and Patrick Osterhage are again an option at VfL. Guest coach Thomas Reis is hoping for a defiant reaction from his team after the recent 7-0 defeat against FC Bayern Munich.
