Freiburg (AP) – 1. FC Köln starts in the away game at SC Freiburg on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky) with U21 European champion Salih Özcan and attacker Mark Uth. For Özcan, Ellyes Skhiri will be on the bench, while Ondrej Duda will have to give way for ex-international Uth. In the right-back position, coach Steffen Baumgart lets the last strong Benno Schmitz begin again.
Freiburg will play with a back four around Nico Schlotterbeck, who was nominated for the first time for the senior national team. The still ailing midfielder Nicolas Höfler did not make it into the squad, for the first time new signing Maximilian Eggestein is in the starting line-up of the Breisgauers.
