Did you know that
…TSG have found the net in each of their previous 14 Bundesliga matches?
The last time that Hoffenheim did not manage to score in the Bundesliga was in their 3-0 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach. Since then, TSG have netted in every game. Only Bayern are on a longer run (20 games).
…Hoffenheim are currently enjoying the third-best season in the club's history?
Only twice before have TSG had more points at this stage of a Bundesliga season (33 points from 20 matches). One was their debut campaign in 2008/09 (39 points); the other was the 2016/17 season (34 points).
…Freiburg are vulnerable in the closing stages?
Coach Christian Streich's charges have already conceded six goals in stoppage time – more than any other club. TSG have the second-best record for goals in the final 15 minutes (13 goals) behind RB Leipzig (16 goals).
…the two teams are in contrasting form?
While TSG have won four of their past five matches in the Bundesliga, Freiburg have tasted defeat in four of their last six games. That said, there is still only one place and four points separating the regional rivals in the table.
