Still chasing their first Bundesliga win this season, Freiburg flew out of the blocks, with Admir Mehmedi trying his luck inside 120 seconds. Christian Streich’s men continued in much the same vein as the half progressed, but in truth Grün-Weißen goalkeeper Sebastian Mielitz had little to do.
Flurry of chances
Bremen almost broke the deadlock in the 58th minute when Sebastian Freis inadvertently directed a Zlatko Junuzovic corner against his own post, with the woodwork later coming to the rescue of Bremen to deny Matthias Ginter from close range.
Nils Petersen could have won it late on, but Freiburg custodian Oliver Baumann did his job to ensure his first clean sheet of the season as well as the German top flight's first 0-0 draw since 28 April 2013.
