Freiburg punching above their weight

Freiburg - As traditionally slow starters, SC Freiburg stuck to the form book early on and needed a couple of games to click into gear. Since then, however, the Black Forest outfit, lead by their indomitably charismatic coach Christian Streich, have surprised many on-lookers not only with some impressive results, but also the slick performances which earned them. Often touted as relegation candidates, a spot in the European places no longer seems such a far-fetched pipedream.
