In contrast, Bremen are searching for their third victory in succession following wins over Schalke and Arminia Bielefeld before the international break.
Freiburg were taught a footballing lesson by Dortmund in gameweek three as the hosts cruised to a 4-0 victory at the Westfalenstadion, with Erling Braut Haaland netting twice and Emre Can and Felix Passlack completing the rout.
Christian Streich's men have also beaten Stuttgart and played out a 1-1 stalemate with Wolfsburg in these early stages, so the Freiburg manager will not be too displeased with his side's start to the season.
However, Freiburg took on Stuttgart for the second time in three weeks in a friendly during the international break, and Streich's side fell to a 3-0 defeat in that encounter last week.
There is no need for the Freiburg faithful to be feeling disheartened following a friendly loss, though, as the Breisgau-Brasilianer are now welcoming Werder Bremen to a ground where they have won three out of their last four top-flight fixtures.
Meanwhile, Bremen's season appeared to be heading in the wrong direction following an early drubbing at the hands of Hertha Berlin, but last season's strugglers seem to have turned the corner in the past couple of weeks.
Despite their status as a newly-promoted club, Arminia have shown that they are not going to be bullied during their time with the big boys, so Bremen were certainly full value for that hard-fought victory against last season's 2.Bundesliga champions.
Kohfeldt will be tasked with ensuring that Die Werderaner's woeful 2019-20 campaign does not repeat itself this time around, and a third victory from four would put the Bremen faithful's mind at ease as the season gathers pace.
Bremen took the spoils in this fixture last season courtesy of another Bittencourt winner, while Freiburg have only triumphed once in their last eight meetings in all competitions with Die Werderaner.

Another international in Freiburg's ranks is Hungarian forward Roland Sallai, but the 23-year-old is expected to feature after cutting his time with the national team short.
With regards to the visitors, Milot Rashica missed out Kosovo's fixtures through injury but has now returned to training, although the attacker is unlikely to be risked from the first whistle.
Freiburg possible starting lineup:
Muller; Schmid, Lienhart, Schlotterbeck, Gunter; Sallai, Santamaria, Hofler, Grifo; Petersen, Holer
Werder Bremen possible starting lineup:
Pavlenka; Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Friedl, Augustinsson; Eggestein, Mbom, Bittencourt; Sargent, Fullkrug, Chong
We say: Freiburg 1-1 Werder Bremen
Bremen have started the season positively and boast a strong recent record against Freiburg, so the visitors should feel confident of coming out on top here. However, Freiburg are not to be underestimated on home soil and will be determined to put things right following their humbling at Dortmund, so we expect both sides to walk away with a point apiece.
