1899 Hoffenheim under pressure ahead of derby in freiburg

Just in time for this game on sunday, however, mazen dietmar hopp has once again expressed confidence in his ailing coach. "I’m fully behind markus babbel". I trust him because I don’t see any reason for it to be up to him," said the 72-year-old.

Babbel himself was pleased with the backlash before departing for freiburg and otherwise tried to spur his team on to a sporting turnaround with a fiery address. "It’s a tight stadium, i loved this atmosphere as a player. I hope that this atmosphere will push us to the top," said the 1996 european champion. "We must all stand together and call on our 100 percent of our ability. And if that’s not enough, we have to shake it off and keep on going."

The hopefuls will have to do without some players on sunday, however. Sejad salihovic and stephan schrock are on yellow suspension, newcomer chris is missing due to a torn muscle in his thigh. The use of striker sven schipplock, who is struggling with a bruise on his heel, is still questionable.

SC freiburg has lost only one of the past seven games against hoffenheim and now wants to build on this positive derby record. "We have a sporting competitive situation here in our tranquil landle," said coach christian streich.
