Like Union Berlin, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Freiburg won in this 12th day of the Bundesliga. Clearly superior to their opponents from Schalke 04, Christian Streich’s players won with mastery on the lawn of the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
Author of a curled strike, Vincenzo Grifo gave his team the advantage at the end of a first period largely dominated (45th + 1, 1-0) by Fribourg. The Italian offered himself a double on a penalty shot in force in the right corner (61st, 2-0) synonymous with Fribourg’s third game in a row without defeat in the Championship. The Black Forest club takes the podium two points behind the Union Berlin leader who beat M’Gladbach and one length from Bayern Munich wide winner of Mainz on Saturday (6-2).
For Schalke 04 and Florent Mollet, the former Metz and Montpellier player, this season seems to be off to a bad start. The first of Thomas Reis, named this week after his departure from Bochum, has not yet had any effects. Schalke, with this 6th setback in a row, remains last in the standings with six small points on the clock.
