The lineup of Mainz: Florian Müller - Daniel Brosinski, Jeremiah St. Juste, Moussa Niakhaté, Aaron Martín - Ridle Baku, Edimilson Fernandes, Danny Latza - Jean Paul Boëtius - Karim Onisiwo, Robin Quaison.
Overall, the picture looks like this - the formation of the Freiburg: Alexander Schwolow - Jonathan Schmid, Philipp Lienhart, Nico Schlotterbeck, Christian Günter - Brandon Borrello, Robin Koch, Nicolas Höfler, Jérôme Gondorf - Gian-Luca Waldschmidt, Nils Petersen.
He sticks to his starting line-up: In the case of the zero fifers, coach Schwarz has only scheduled a change. Jeremiah St. Juste replaces the injured Stefan Bell in central defense.
Christian Streich makes three personnel changes compared to the Magdeburg game. Nico Schlotterbeck, Robin Koch and Jérôme Gondorf replace Mike Frantz, Roland Sallai and Dominique Heintz.
SC coach Christian Streich warns of today's opponent: "They have fast players, a good switching game and are very compact," Streich analyzed the Mainz.
The guests celebrated their most Bundesliga triumphs against the Freiburg, a total of twelve victories. Only against another club do the Rheinhessen have a double-digit record - against Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
Bad omen for the Breisgauer: The SC Freiburg never succeeded in the last eleven Bundesliga seasons a victory at the start. Five draws and six defeats are accounted for. In addition, the sports club conceded against the Mainz in the last meeting a 0-5 swatter. Caution is required.
While the sports club was able to successfully master its first competitive match in the first round of the DFB Cup with a 1-0 victory over 1. FC Magdeburg in extra time, the Rheinhessen eliminated surprisingly against 1.FC Kaiserslautern - the Mainz players are thus already under pressure.
Hello and welcome to the game between SC Freiburg and 1. FSV Mainz 05! In both teams, the anticipation for the Bundesliga prelude is great.
