Freiburg have been struggling recently, failing to win their recent matches. However, this can no longer be continued as more losses will make them bid goodbye to their hopes of the Champions League. Freiburg is currently sitting at the fifth of the league table with 56 points. A win in this match could make them enter the top four of the league table with 59 points. It is just unfortunate that they are from a 4-2 loss against Union Berlin. In fact, they are already down by three goals in that match, but Manuel Gulde, and Vincenzo Grifo were able to score goals for them. Freiburg aims to finally end their three-game losing streak, and return to winning ways, as this match is a crucial game for them.

Unfortunately, Lukas Kubler is already out for the remainder of the season, following a muscle injury he sustained against Union Berlin. Fortunately, Philipp Lienhart is expected to return here from his illness. Daniel-Kofi Kyereh on the other hand remains on the sides, as he is still ailing his ACL injury.

With 49 points across their names, Wolfsburg are currently sitting at the sixth of the league table. They are with a seven-point difference with their opponent here, who is with 56 points. Additionally, they are from a 2-1 win against Hoffenheim on their last meeting, which gives them the confidence coming into this match. Wolfsburg won three of their last four games, and have lost once in their last five games. Wolfsburg should be able to bring this momentum in this match, for them to have a bigger chance for the European stage.

Maxence Lacroix, Paulo Otavio, and Lukas Nmecha are all unavailable here due to their injuries, and will not travel in this match.
