'Never change a winning team' is a popular football adage, and it is one Markus Gisdol will be happy to adhere to this weekend, just as long as the hero of Hamburg's recent resurgence – Kyriakos Papadopoulos – is able to shake off a knee injury which forced him to end training prematurely on Wednesday. The unlikely number nine hero should be fit to face Freiburg, however.

Watch: Highlights of Hamburg's 3-0 win over RB Leipzig on Matchday 20:

Freiburg may not necessarily be on a long winning streak of their own, but their coach Christian Streich also has little reason to make changes, with his side convincing enough in last Sunday's 2-1 win over 1. FC Köln. Some tactical tinkering for an away game may be in order, but the men on the field at the first whistle are likely to be the same.
