Freiburg strike again
Labbadia introduced Daniel Ginczek at the interval in a bid to increase the Wolves' threat in the final third, but it was the guests who next added to the scoreline when Frantz slotted past Casteels after being played clean through. Mehmedi gave the hosts a lifeline just after the hour mark with a smart drilled finish from the right and Brekalo's introduction as a substitute offered greater drive on the left flank, but this time there was to be no late comeback as Freiburg held to win.
