SC Freiburg v TSV Eintracht Braunschweig: Preview
Eintracht Braunschweig coach Torsten Lieberknecht believes his side could capitalise on the fears of their rivals by staying up this season.
The expectations are not so high in Braunschweig compared to the likes of Hamburg, Stuttgart and Nurnberg, who are all in the mix for relegation.
Saturday's hosts Freiburg are also under a great deal more pressure having finished last season in fifth and Lieberknecht has attempted to increase that pressure even further by warning that his side are ready to pounce.
``If anybody starts to wobble, then it always starts down at the bottom,'' he told the SID agency.
``We don't need to be afraid of anything, though, because we don't shut up shop of we go down.
``We are and remain the underdogs. Everybody knew that it was going to be an incredibly difficult season.
``We have been following the objective of staying up from the very start of the season and we will do everything imaginable and go through the pain barrier to do it.
``We can only win.''
Freiburg have plenty to lose, even though they too knew it was going to be a difficult campaign.
After qualifying for the Europa League last May, half of Christian Streich's squad moved on to other clubs, leaving him to start almost from scratch, largely with young players - and Admir Mehmedi.
The Swiss striker is the club's top scorer with nine goals so far this season, although he was at risk of missing out this weekend until returning to training on Thursday.
He should therefore keep his place in the Freiburg attack against a side Streich expects to put up a brave fight.
``They are just like us - they will not give up,'' he said.
