Europa League: Freiburg can still hope for the round of 16 of the Europa League

In the away game at RC Lens, SC Freiburg has created a respectable starting position for its targeted place in the round of 16 in the Europa League. The Breisgauer fought to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the second round. They can therefore hope to progress in the second leg next week in front of their home crowd and thus reach the round of 16 of the Europa League.

Both teams played a good game at the Bollaert-Delelis stadium, but did not take advantage of their chances to score. The supposed opening goal for the hosts by Massadio Haïdara (70th minute) was withdrawn due to a previous offside position after the video evidence.

Lens can start the knockout phase of the Europa League as third in their Champions League group. Freiburg had recently lost three Bundesliga games in a row. RC Lens, on the other hand, has won the last three games in the French league. In European international competition, the French have remained undefeated in their last 13 home games.

Streich had demanded an increase in performance

Freiburg coach Christian Streich had demanded an “absolute increase in performance” from his players before the game. The team showed itself to be more combative against RC Lens than in its last Bundesliga games. For long stretches of the game they hardly gave the French any chances to score.

However, Freiburg were unable to capitalize on any of their chances themselves. Stand-in captain Maximilian Eggestein came closest in the 59th minute. He finally failed from three meters away from the Lens goalkeeper, Brice Samba.
