No way through for either side as they each take a point home with them. It's probably a fair result on the balance of play and one that lifts Hoffenheim into fourth over the international break, shunting Bayern down into fifth.

HERE HE IS
Petersen is the Bundesliga's all-time best ever supersub with 33 goals off the bench in his career. One more today would be just the tonic for Freiburg.
NO SHORTAGE OF SHOTS
Freiburg boss Streich makes three changes as he looks to edge a win here. He's also got supersub Nils Petersen on the bench for the final few minutes if they still need a goal..
Hoffenheim should be in front by now, according to the xG expected goals metric.

CHANCE FOR GREGORITSCH
Günter whipes in a cross from the left into the middle, where Gregoritsch beats his marker to the ball. His shot is deflected and goes out for a corner.
OVER FROM HÖFLER
Patient build-up play from the visitors as the ball switches side, ending up with Grifo cutting inside from the left and teeing it up for Höfler, whose fierce shot flies over.
As was the case in the first half, Hoffenheim's initial attack thrust has petered out. Breitenreiter reacts by bringing on Dabbur and Damar for Geiger and Baumgartner.
WIDE FROM EGGESTEIN!
Doan ties Angelino in knots down the Freiburg right and cuts the ball back into the middle, where Kyereh collects. He tries to fashion space to shoot but ends up laying the ball off for Eggestein on the edge of the area and his low effort whizzes just wide.
BRILLIANT SLIDING BLOCK FROM VOGT
Grifo dummies a ball into his path and space suddenly opens up for Günter just inside the Hoffenheim box. He shapes to shoot for the far corner but Vogt slides in from way out and makes a sensational block.
Perhaps an element of frustration there from the Freiburg skipper as he goes in to challenge Baumgartner, who certainly felt the full force of the tackle.
OVER FROM PRÖMEL
Hoffenheim have been on top in this second half so far and get their next sight of goal when a corner is only half cleared to Prömel, lurking just outside the box. He chests it down and shoots at goal but it loops well over the bar.
HOSTS LIMITING GRIFO AND GÜNTER
The Freiburg duo are often their team's route to scoring goals but they've been pegged back by Hoffenheim targetting that side of the pitch today. Normally Andre Breitenreiter's side produce 30% of their forward forays down the right; today it's been 50%.
CHANCE FOR BAUMGARTNER
The Austrian breaks into the left-hand side of Freiburg's box and draws Flekken out to him but lashes his shot over the bar.
UNDER WAY AGAIN!

DOAN GOES CLOSE AGAIN
The Freiburg playmaker eludes the home defence with his run as he tries to collect a lofted ball over the defence. It's just too strong for his outstretched boot though, and Hoffenheim breathe a sigh of relief.
GRIFO HAS A GO
Some intricate interplay from Freiburg as they work the ball forward from midfield. The move culminates in Grifo drifting infield from the left and aiming a shot towards the far post but Baumann has read his intentions and makes the save.
HOFFENHEIM THREAT WANING
The hosts had four shots on goal in the opening 12 minutes but have only mustered one since then, while the away side have had five of their own in the last 25 minutes or so.
PRÖMEL UP FOR IT
Grischa Prömel Michael Gregoritsch
WIDE FROM GÜNTER
The Freiburg captain takes aim from 20 yards with his weaker right foot. He catches it well enough but it skids wide of the post.
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
The expected goals model has Hoffenheim as the more dangerous side so far. Rutter has been a handful up front so far.
HOSTS CLOSER TO SCORING
WIDE FROM GREGORITSCH
Doan plays a low ball from the right into Gregoritsch, hovering on the edge of the Hoffenheim box. He jinks past Kabak, Vogt and Akpoguma before getting a shot off but it whizzes wide of the post. Freiburg coach Christian Streich applauds the effort from the touchline though.
Prömel goes close at the other end of the pitch, cutting inside and shooting low but his effort is blocked by Flekken's legs.
KYEREH DRILLS OVER!
A long free-kick from the right is floated into the Hoffenheim box. Doan touches it back to Kyereh on the edge of the area but his fizzing shot sails narrowly over the bar.

BIG SAVE FROM BAUMANN!
Akpoguma tries to shield the ball out of play at the byline but Doan picks his pocket. He goes for a shot despite the tight angle but fires it straight at Baumann, who is able to clear.
FIRST CHANCE OF THE GAME!
Freiburg are pushing high up the pitch but are forced to track back after a long balll releases Rutter down the left. He's crowded out inside thebox by a combination of Sildillia and Ginter, but the latter's clearance is poor and lands straight at the feet of Kabak. He lets fly with a powerful drive from distance but it's wide of the target.
NICE FROM DOAN
The Japanese playmaker does a stepover and darts away from Akpoguma on the Freiburg right but can't quite get a cross away. Still, encouraging start from the visitors.
AND WE'RE OFF!
The ball is rolling in Sinsheim!
SECOND PLACE AT STAKE
Whoever wins this game will climb above Borussia Dortmund and go second in the table behind leaders Union Berlin.
The Black Forest club have won eight of the 24 Bundesliga meetings between these teams, including each of their last three visits to Hoffenheim. There have been 10 draws and six wins for Hoffenheim.

TEAM NEWS - HOFFENHEIM
Andre Breitenreiter has only made one change to his side following last week's 4-1 win over Mainz: Angelino replaces Skov wide on the left.
TEAM NEWS - FREIBURG
Freiburg boss Christian Streich sticks with the same line-up for a third successive game. And after drawing against Gladbach last weekend and beating Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday, he's got no reason to make any changes.

THE SEASON SO FAR
Hoffenheim bounced back from defeat to Borussia Dortmund with a 4-1 win over Mainz. They're now three from three at home this season, and begin the weekend in fourth place on 12 points.
