Munich - Having already worked a miracle to stave off relegation despite collecting a meagre 13 points in the first half of the 2011/12 season, SC Freiburg hardly seemed shaken by their 17-point return by Matchday 24 this time around.

The Baden-Württemberg club went on to win five and draw two of the following eight games, producing yet another impressive end-of-season surge to eventually finish nine points clear of 16th-placed Hamburger SV. “I'm quite proud of what we've done in the last months,“ said an emotional head coach Christian Streich after prematurely securing another year of Bundesliga football with Freiburg after a 2-2 draw at VfL Wolfsburg on Matchday 32. "The team have had another outstanding season."
