  • Freiburg have won five of their last eight UEFA competition matches at home (D1 L2).
  • Freiburg have won their last two home UEFA Europa League matches by a 5-0 scoreline.
  • Freiburg are without a win in their last five matches in all competitions (D2 L3).
  • This is the second time Freiburg have been involved in a goalless draw in the away first leg of a European tie. On the previous occasion, against Slovakian side Matador Púchov in the 2001/02 UEFA Cup first round, they went on to win the second leg 2-1 at home to progress.
  • Freiburg have kept three clean sheets in their last four UEFA Europa League matches.

  • Lens have won only two of their last nine UEFA competition matches (D4 L3).
  • Lens have lost only one of their last eight UEFA competition matches against German clubs (W2 D5).
  • Excluding penalty shoot-outs, Lens have lost only two of their last 12 matches in all competitions (W6 D4).
  • Lens have won only one of their previous seven UEFA competition matches away from home against German teams (D3 L3).


Under the management of Christian Streich, Freiburg come into this second-leg on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in their most recent outing, at the weekend. Freiburg trailed three times in the match but Michael Gregoritsch scored an 89th minute goal to snatch a point, epitomising the spirit and character of Streich and Freiburg. Lens were held to a 1-1 draw by an out of form Stade de Reims side on Sunday afternoon. These are two evenly matched sides that will not give much if anything away easily so a low-scoring encounter is to be expected for this one with extra-time potentially beckoning.
