Freiburg came into the game as the nearest challengers to leaders RB Leipzig, but Christian Streich's men look like they may face a challenge from their Matchday 20 opponents for one of the two automatic promotion spots.

Marco Terrazzino's 13th-minute header was added to by Tim Hoogland's 67th-minute strike as Gertjan Verbeek's side moved into fourth place.
