Mainz beat Freiburg; secured first Bundesliga win of the season

On Sunday with a 3-1 victory at Freiburg, Jean-Philippe Mateta scored a hat trick to lead Mainz to its first Bundesliga win of the season.

The French striker got the visitors off to a flying start in the second minute, grabbed his second goal in the 34th, and his third in the 40th, as Freiburg endured a first half to forget against what was the league’s bottom team.

In the 63rd minute, Freiburg captain Nils Petersen pulled one back but under new coach Jan-Moritz Lichte, Mainz held on for its first win at the sixth attempt.

Mainz’s win leaves Schalke bottom after the eighth round.
