"We need to play with passion in Freiburg!"

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann speaks to the press ahead of Freiburg away | Ethan Ampadu match fit | Question marks over a number of players

Road trip to Freiburg! The Bulls face sixth-placed SC Freiburg away on Saturday (15:30 CEST). 

Julian Nagelsmann discussed the upcoming match and his squad's fitness during this morning's press conference

Coach Julian Nagelsmann:


  • "Freiburg have done some excellent work in recent years and have established themselves as a solid Bundesliga side. They have especially improved their efficiency in front of goal. They take almost every big chance they get. 

    You can always try to replicate things that teams who have beaten Freiburg did well. The stadium, the fans and even the way Freiburg play is very emotional. We also need to play with passion or it will be very difficult for us."

  • Ethan Ampadu has recovered from his concussion and is available to play. 
  • Appearances from Timo Werner (hip), Diego Demme and Nordi Mukiele (both calf), Konrad Laimer (neck) and Lukas Klostermann (bruising) are unlikely.
