Schwarzwald-Stadion, Freiburg im Breisgau

1. FC Köln





Freiburg have lost just three of their last 15 games against Köln (including a 3-0 defeat in the reverse fixture, otherwise W9, D3).
SCF are unbeaten in 11 home matches against KOE (W7, D4), including wins in the last four. They’ve only gone on a longer streak without a home defeat against one other side since reaching the professional leagues in 1978 (13 matches vs. Hansa Rostock).
Streich’s men have won six of their nine games at home this season (L3). They’ve only claimed more home points at this stage of a campaign twice: 1994/95 (equivalent of 20) and 2003/04 (19).
This is Köln’s best-ever start to the second half of a campaign in their top-flight history (W2; F7, A1; G.D: +6). They haven’t won more consecutively at the start of the second half since 2010/11.
The Billy Goats have conceded just 16 goals this season – their best return after 19 matchdays since 1990/91 (14). The Breisgau side have conceded more than twice as many (33).
The promoted side cover an average of 118.3km per game this term – a league-high. Köln’s figure is a league-low 110.1km.
Both sides have had a league-low seven different goal scorers this term (same as HSV). While Freiburg are one of only two sides to have three players score at least five goals this season (same as RBL), 54% of Köln’s goals have come from Anthony Modeste.
Anthony Modeste has already bagged 15 Bundesliga goals this term, a tally which equals his personal best for a full season (set last season). He’s the first Köln player to score this many goals after 19 matchdays since Lukas Podolski in 2011/12.
KOE’s Thomas Kessler (77.5%) and Timo Horn (79.4%) lead the league in save percentage, whereas Freiburg’s Alexander Schwolow (57.7%) sits 23rd out of the 24 keepers to feature in the Bundesliga this season.
Leonardo Bittencourt could make his 100th Bundesliga appearance this weekend. He’s scored four top-flight goals in five appearances against the Breisgau natives – more than vs. any other side.
