SC Freiburg prepared for its first opponent in the group stage of the Europa League with extensive video studies.
In the opinion of Freiburg's offensive man Vincenzo Grifo, the large number of videos and technical aids helps in preparing for opponents who are otherwise not so much in focus. "In my circle of friends I also had: 'Karabakh? I don't know it at first'," said the 29-year-old. However, the videos can be used to analyze the other team well. "I don't know if that would have been possible ten, twenty years ago," said Grifo. "It's like that these days. It's a huge advantage for us players."
