Freiburg had a successful start of the new season, qualifying for the second round of the DFB Pokal. But it didn’t happen easily. Christian Streich’s team had to play extra time against Magdeburg in order to progress. The regular 90 minutes at the MDCC-Arena ended without any goals scored, but during the extra time Freiburg’s Gianluca Waldschmidt scored a winner and turned out to be the hero for his side.
Last season Freiburg ended at 13th place in the Bundesliga standings. Of course, now they’d want to improve this position. On the summer market the club made some signings in order to improve the team. The Korean talent Woo-yeong Jeong was signed from Bayern Munich, while the French right back Jonathan Schmid was signed from Augsburg. Dijon’s Chang-hun Kwon and Wolfsburg’s Luca Itter also signed with the club.
Mainz 05 suffered dissapointment just few days ago, being eliminated from the DFB Pokal. Sandro Scwarz’ team visited Kaiserslautern and suffered a 0-2 defeat at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion. Manfred Starke from a penalty kick and Florian Pick scored the winning goals for the home side.
On the market Mainz made some interesting deals. The club paid 9 million euro to Feyenoord for the centre back Jeremiah St. Juste, while West Ham’s Edimilson Fernandes was also signed. Espanyol’s Aaron Martin and Monaco’s Ronael Pierre-Gabriel also strenghtened the Bundesliga side. But in same time Mainz are going to miss the classy midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin who was sold to Everton.
