Following consecutive defeats on the road this term, Freiburg coach Christian Streich will be happy to get his team back on home soil, where, having triumphed in their last seven games, are one win shy of a club record. Their task will be far from straightforward, however, having failed to beat HSV in nine of the teams' last meetings.
