Naby Keita hammered a volley inside the far post after Emil Forsberg’s initial effort was deflected to get the scoring underway, and Forsberg scored midway through the second half.

Quick-fire goals from Willi Orban and Keita again after Sandro Sirigu was sent off put the result beyond doubt.

Freiburg coach Christian Streich responded with three changes at the break but Delaney grabbed his second, after being set up by Kruse, early in the second half.

Former Bremen striker Nils Petersen pulled one back on the rebound after Felix Wiedwald saved his penalty, before Fin Bartels sealed it with his heel with some 20 minutes remaining.

Vincenzo Grifo scored Freiburg’s second before Delaney completed his hat trick.

Earlier, on Friday, Ten-man Hertha Berlin fell to a home defeat for only the second time in the Bundesliga this season following a 3-1 loss against Hoffenheim as their hunt for Champions League football next season took a major setback.

Hertha took the lead after 32 minutes when a swift counter attack started by Salomon Kalou saw the Ivorian set up Alexander Esswein but he sliced the ball straight into the path of Peter Pekarik and the full-back drilled it home at the near post for his first league goal.

Hoffenheim were level six minutes later when defender Max Mittelstadt was adjudged to have handled in the area and Andrej Kramaric coolly slotted home.

The hosts were reduced to to 10 men after Mittelstadt was dismissed for his second yellow card following a late challenge on Nadiem Amiri with over half an hour of the match still remaining, and Hoffenheim took full advantage.

Central defender Niklas Sule hit a 30-yard wonder strike off the underside of the crossbar to put the visitors ahead after 76 minutes before Kramaric grabbed his second late on to seal the win.

The victory moved Hoffenheim up to third in the table with Hertha staying in fifth place, six points off the final Champions League spot.
