• Braunschweig and Freiburg meet in the Bundesliga for the first time. Their last meeting was in the second round of the cup last season, when SCF triumphed 2-0 in Braunschweig.
  • Eintracht have won just three of the 21 competitive meetings between the two sides (D5 L13). Braunschweig have been without a win in 17 matches against Freiburg (D4 L13).
  • Braunschweig have doubled their points haul from four to eight over the last two matchdays, meaning that Nürnberg have now replaced them at the bottom of the table.
  • Braunschweig haven’t conceded a goal in their last two matches (202 Bundesliga minutes). The last time Eintracht kept clean sheets in two consecutive top-flight games was in April/May 1984.
  • Freiburg’s 3-0 victory against 1. FC Nürnberg on matchday 11 is their only win in their last 13 Bundesliga matches (D5 L7).
  • SCF have failed to score in their last two Bundesliga away games (191 minutes). If they fail to score in Braunschweig, they will match their worst ever run (three consecutive away games without a goal in 2000/01).
  • Five of SCF’s last eight Bundesliga goals have been scored by a substitute. Meanwhile, Braunschweig have conceded the most goals from substitutes (6).
  • Braunschweig have never scored fewer goals in their first 12 Bundesliga games than they have this season (8). Augsburg had the same record last season but avoided the drop (15th).
  • Freiburg had the youngest starting XI in their Bundesliga history in the 3-1 defeat to Stuttgart on matchday 12 (23 years, 98 days). Sebastian Freis was the only player in that squad born the last time SCF lost a game to Braunschweig (2-0 in July 1986).
  • Braunschweig sporting director Marc Arnold has ties to Freiburg, having played for their local rivals FFC in the 1992/93 season together with current SCF manager Christian Streich.
