• Wolfsburg have won three of their last four Bundesliga games against Freiburg (1 draw) – as many wins as they managed in the previous 17 meetings with SCF (in total, 6 VfL wins to Freiburg’s 9 and 6 draws).
  • VfL have managed to keep a clean sheet in just one of their 10 Bundesliga home games against Freiburg (in a 4-0 win in April 2004).
  • Freiburg have collected 16 points from their last seven games – only Dortmund have done the same. The Wolves are just behind them, with 14 points collected in that timeframe (the same as Schalke).
  • On top of that, SCF have scored 17 goals in their last seven games (an average of 2.4 per game) – a league-best. Freiburg only scored 22 times in their 24 previous league games this season.
  • The Wolves have scored in each of their last 23 Bundesliga games – the longest goalscoring run in the league and a club record. However, VfL have also conceded a goal in each of their last 11 Bundesliga games – currently the longest run without a clean sheet together with Bayer 04.
  • Freiburg have collected just one win in their last eight away games (4-1 in Frankfurt). Apart from Braunschweig (10), SCF have scored the fewest away goals (14) and have failed to find the back of the net in six of their last eight away matches.
  • Wolfsburg (52.6% of tackles won) and Freiburg (47.3% won), the league’s best-tackling and worst-tackling side respectively go head-to-head in this encounter.
  • Ivica Olic has scored in each of his last four Bundesliga games and is just one goal short of equalling his personal scoring record (14 goals in 2007/08). The Croat has been involved in four VfL goals in the last two Bundesliga meetings with Freiburg (3 goals, 1 assist).
  • Luiz Gustavo was sent off for the third time this season on matchday 31 – a Bundesliga record together with four other players – and is suspended. Oliver Sorg and Felix Klaus are unavailable for SCF due to yellow-card suspensions.
  • Admir Mehmedi has scored 11 goals in this campaign and has equalled Freiburg’s best goals tally from last season achieved by Jonathan Schmid and Max Kruse. The Swiss forward has been involved in seven goals in his last seven Bundesliga games (4 goals, 3 assists).
