Freis: Freiburg are not safe yet
A 0-0 draw with Hoffenheim yesterday gave the Baden-Wurttemberg club a seven-point advantage over the bottom three, but, with three games of the season to go, Freis says it is all to play for.
"Looking at the table, mathematically everything is still possible," he said. "We can still get sucked in down there so we are not going to celebrate yet."
Freis came closest to giving Freiburg a win that would have taken them to within a point of safety, but they have destiny in their own hands with a match against their nearest rivals to come.
"Of course we have to face Cologne, but we also have two tough away games in Hannover and [Borussia] Dortmund," he told Sky. "We should not underestimate our run-in."
Hoffenheim are still in the hunt for a place in Europe, meanwhile, with the point taking them to within three points of the top seven. "We are happy with this point and now we will go into our final games looking to spring a surprise," their coach Markus Babbel said.
Firmino out for season
He received good news this morning from his club's medical department with Roberto Firmino, who was carried off with a suspected broken ankle, being diagnosed with torn ligaments.
His campaign is over, but he will at least be fit for pre-season. "We had feared the worst to start with, but it is frustrating enough that Roberto will not be able to help us for the final few games of the season," said Babbel on the club's website.
"What is more important, though, is that he recovers from this shock quickly and gets back on his feet soon."
