Freiburg (dpa / lsw) – Christian Streich is facing a special anniversary on the sidelines of the Bundesliga. The away game at VfL Bochum on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) is the 300th game for SC Freiburg coaches in the German upper house. “You would not have thought that realistic in one place and with a club – a good, great club,” said Streich, who will also be celebrating his 10th birthday as a professional coach for the Breisgauer in winter.
Only five coaches have managed more Bundesliga games with a club, including former SC coach Volker Finke (340). Officially, the game in Bochum is already the 302nd for Streich, but he couldn’t sit on the bench in two games at the beginning of the 2018/19 season due to back problems. “If we win it could be a cool day,” he said before the trip to VfL. “It’s a great stadium that I’m looking forward to, and I think Bochum against Freiburg as a Bundesliga game is good.”
At its anniversary, the personnel situation is unchanged compared to the previous week. Top joker Nils Petersen is back in training after a knee problem, but it would be too early this weekend.
