Match preview

After coming so close to DFB-Pokal glory last season, how far will Freiburg go this time round?

Last season, Breisgau-Brasilianer reached the final of this competition for the very first time, but were beaten on penalties by RB Leipzig at Olympiastadion.

Thus, Christian Streich’s team are doubly determined to go all the way in 2023.

Right now, Freiburg are sixth in the Bundesliga, just two points below the Champions League spots.

That’s despite the fact they’ve only won one of four since the winter break, most-recently hammered 5-1 by Borussia Dortmund at Westfalenstadion on Saturday.

Here though, having already ousted Kaiserslautern and St. Pauli in the Pokal this season, Freiburg are the favourites to get through.

Although, Alois Schwartz’s team are currently fighting for their Zweite Bundesliga lives.

Following Friday’s 4-0 drubbing at home against Darmstadt, they’re 15th, above the relegation play-off spot on goal difference alone.

In this competition, Sandhausen have seen off Schwarz-Weiß Rehden and Karlsruher, so are on the cusp of the quarter-finals for the first time since 1986.

Here though, Freiburg should be too strong at BWT-Stadion am Hardtwald.
