• Dortmund have recorded 17 wins in the Bundesliga against Freiburg (D8, L3). Since May 2010 (a 3-1 away defeat), Dortmund have won all six encounters with Freiburg, scoring 20 and conceding just three goals.
  • Since Freiburg's 2-0 victory in October 2001, they have suffered six consecutive defeats in Dortmund. During their only win in Dortmund, one of Freiburg's goals was scored by current Dortmund skipper Sebastian Kehl.
  • It is the first time in BVB's Bundesliga history that they have collected 16 points from the opening six Bundesliga matches. They have only once scored more than 16 goals (1994/95, 20 goals).
  • Dortmund will play second-bottom in the table when they face Freiburg. Before that, Klopp's team faced the currently ranked 18th (Braunschweig), 16th (HSV), 15th (Nürnberg) and 13th (Frankfurt) amongst others.
  • It is the first time in Freiburg's Bundesliga history that they have failed to secure a win from the opening six matchdays. They have never had less than three points from their opening six games (1995/96 & 1996/97 seasons they also had three points).
  • Freiburg have failed to win a Bundesliga match in their last seven attempts (D3, L4), their longest winless streak under Christian Streich. The last time they had a longer run of games without a win was under Robin Dutt in the 2009/10 campaign (12 games).
  • SCF have dropped seven points from winning positions (a Bundesliga high together with Hoffenheim). They have failed to win after leading their last two league games (against Augsburg & Hertha) as well as their Europa League match (against Liberec).
  • In terms of shots on goal, the top team in the league (BVB, 136) meets the bottom ranked team (SCF, 49). Marco Reus alone has been directly involved in 45 shots this season (23 shots, 22 shot assists).
  • BVB have scored in each of their last 30 league games; two short of the club record.
  • Dortmund have taken the lead in their last 14 games. The last time they failed to do so was against Freiburg on matchday 26 last season.
