• 1. FSV Mainz 05 have not lost to SC Freiburg in their last six Bundesliga meetings (W3, D3) – Freiburg’s last victory over Mainz was a 1-0 home win in November 2010.
  • This is Mainz’s longest unbeaten run against SCF in their Bundesliga history – overall they have only managed to stay unbeaten in six successive games against two other top-flight clubs: Dortmund (September 2005 – April 2010) and Hertha (March 2006 – October 2011).
  • Freiburg have never managed to win a Bundesliga game in Mainz (D2, L3). Their last victory there in a competitive match was a 3-2 (AET) quarterfinal win in last year’s German Cup.
  • Mainz are unbeaten in their last four games (W2, D2) and have lost just one of their last seven Bundesliga games – a 3-1 defeat at home to BVB at the end of November.
  • For the first time this season, Freiburg have won two consecutive games. Three Bundesliga wins in a row is something that SCF have done only twice with Streich as their manager (2011/12 in March and 2012/13 in March/April).
  • Mainz have scored 19 of their 27 goals in the second half of their games (70%) – proportionally, more than any other team in the league and the same amount of goals SCF have scored all season.
  • For the first time since May 2013, Freiburg managed to win a game despite going a goal down last weekend against Bayer 04. Mainz have recently accomplished this feat twice in a row, after they had only previously secured two points all season from losing positions.
  • For the first time since matchday 3 (14th place), Freiburg no longer occupy one of the last three places in the standings. With Christian Streich in charge, SCF have always collected at least 25 points in the second half of the season (2011/12: 27 points, 2012/13: 25 points).
  • Bayern (7 goals from the bench), Mainz (7) and Freiburg (6) have scored the most goals from the bench this season. Benedikt Saller and Felix Klaus both scored a goal as a substitute for their respective teams last weekend.
  • Shinji Okazaki has scored four goals in the last four appearances and has been directly involved in seven of Mainz’s last nine goals (6 goals, 1 assist).
