The 1.FC Kaiserslautern no longer has the direct promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga itself, but can at least secure the relegation place with a point win against Viktoria Cologne. Before the conversation before the game can be directed to the promotion issue in the first place, FCK coach Marco Antwerp breaks a lance for his team, who worked from the table cellar after a strong second half of the season in the previous season.
“We are playing the most successful third division season since 1. FC Kaiserslautern played in this class,” said Antwerp at the beginning of the press conference. After a mixed start of the season, the game against Waldhof Mannheim on match day 8, when you won a point (0-0) after two red cards, the turning point was. The FCK fans always supported his team – even after the bitter defeat against the U 23 of the BVB, after which the direct promotion zone had to be handed over to the competition from Braunschweig. Therefore, the team wants to return something in the last game of the championship round on Sunday.
Return to the old place of work
Not only for Antwerp, who was a coach of the upcoming opponent for a year and a half, the guest appearance will return to an old place of work. Mike Wunderlich played at Viktoria for ten years before joining the Lauterers in summer. Midfield colleague René Klingenburg also came from Cologne in summer. “I think for Mike and Klinge, the game on Sunday is more emotional than for me,” Antwerp is certain.
There is only one victory for the old colleagues for the regulars. On the one hand, to secure the relegation place in front of the lurking Munich lions, on the other hand, on the other hand, in order to be able to have a chance of having a direct promotion at a possible mistake in Eintracht Braunschweig. But Antwerp only pays attention to the performance of his team: “We concentrate entirely on ourselves, regardless of other results or constellations.” With up to 8,000 fans who traveled with them in the back, the team can be sure of the best support.
Lothar Matthäus renewed his criticism of the Ibiza trip of some FC Bayern Munich players after the defeat in Mainz.
“Nobody would have said anything against an evening in a Munich disk, but this campaign was inappropriate,” Matthäus wrote in his sky -Kolumne: “Uli Hoeneß and Karl -Heinz Rummenigge would never have two days after a 1: 3 in Mainz Let go away. “

Matthew cannot follow this reasoning. “For me, this is not a team education measure, but a leisure activities of some professionals. The only thing that is not to do with the whole team and even the captain has stayed at home that this is not about the team. Because otherwise would be She travels closed. And after this season it is clear that this Bayern team is simply not a real team, “wrote the 61-year-old.
According to bild, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Müller, Kingsley Coman, Sven Ulreich, Dayot Upamecano and Bouna Sarr did not travel to Ibiza.
Final Spurt bankruptcy: Bavarians really distort the competition?
Matthew takes Nagelsmann under protection
Matthäus, who had already criticized the trip on Sunday, took on coach Nagelsmann, who granted the team two training -free days before the defeat in Mainz.
“I can very well imagine that Julian Nagelsmann would have liked to cancel this excursion. But it would have been very risky for him to speak a word of power here without losing a large part of the cabin,” wrote Matthew. “Between the authority of a young Bayern coach who does not yet have too many successes and the loss of reputation and respect in the team, it is a very narrow line.”

Fredi Bobic (Managing Director Hertha Hertha BSC)…
_… To the science status after the game: _ “It was important to see that the boys have everything enforced. They have ran much more, which was already recognizable in the first half. They have fought, even if was made too much forward. The plan was also to stabilize the defensive first, but we will then get a penalty, which we have caused himself. In the second half we have tried to make the game offensive and it became more open. However, it lacked the momentum to achieve the gate.

_… To the question why Hertha is currently backwards (before the game): _ “We currently do not have time to talk about these topics.

Manuel new (goalkeeper & captain FC Bayern Munich)…

Then we lost the patience thread, have offered the Hoffenimers so rooms and advised against behind. The risk management was good, we had a good control – even if it ended up An open game was. Before Hoffenheim has the great opportunities, we have to decide the game through our chances. If you leave some of these things, the game will be open again. I’ll compare the game with the achievements of the last weeks, is it a step In the right direction – even if it has become more likely to become a point. “

_ … to question whether he talks about the referee: _ “That’s what they said. It was not a line to recognize, every 50: 50 duel was fired for Stuttgart. We play men’s football, so you have to play Rate two-fight differently. However, there is nothing to talk about the referee.

SASA KALAJDZIC (scorer VFB Stuttgart)…
_… to the game: _ “The draw is fine on the whole. We have been able to buy the cut in the first half and impress us from the hard game of Union.

On Saturday afternoon (15:30 clock), Bayer Leverkusen is in FC Bayern. After the Derben 1: 5 bankruptcy in the first leg, the Werkself has a lot of good care. How to succeed, Defender has revealed Jonathan Tah.
“I also take a positive things from such an experience,” Tah looked back in the “kicker” on the bitter defeat in autumn and added: “That’s why I’m looking forward to the game. We can show us as a team further developed to have.”
In mid-October, the Bayer eleven had “a bad level” on the day and the Munich “an incredible”.
“We’ve dropped out of the things. Of course, we can not happen again.” We have to play adults. “
Although the Leverkusen are nominally well placed as a table greater, the distance to the leader from the south is already saying and write 14 points. So that a disaster does not happen in the first leg no longer, his team “the external hype to hide such a game completely” and bring the focus on the place we last had “.
This attitude has made the team last strongly. “The basis for success is to believe in itself and play out his strengths. We want to bring through our game. This is becoming more and more difficult against a top team, but I think we are able to do so,” the defender given the direction.
Tah: Previously there were already negative vibrations
Since the 1: 5 in the BayArena, a lot has changed within his team. “We make each other less responsible for mistakes, but look what everyone can contribute to the team in addition,” said Tah’s evolution of the team of trainer Gerardo Seoane and betrayed: “Previously, there was a few negative vibrations. Focusing now We are on our game. ” Overall, a “big step forward” had been made.
For an attack on the German championship, however, a lot more had to happen. For example, Bayer should not sell his best players, the national player finds.
If you have the ambitions as a club to annoy the FC Bayern on track, “you have to watch such players. You have to give them the feeling that they do not stagnate here, but it is decisive. Because of course it is like this: If you lose two, three key players, you have to take new start again. “
On the other hand, one should not be sick of a teammate when he changed to a club like Real Madrid, Tah said. “But you can get there that this gap is no longer so perceived by a player,” this “next step to an absolute top club” no longer mandatory, “said the 26-year-old central defender.
Christian Streich does not like it that he will not meet FCA coach Markus Weinzierl on the Saturday afternoon on the side line on the Saturday afternoon, because he is in Corona quarantine. That should be related to the fact that he had the same situation in the last away game at the 1st FC Cologne, when Steffen Baumgart had to stay home – the Sport Club lost 0: 1. “I do not like that, I prefer, the coaches are there and not somewhere else,” said the SC coach. Nevertheless, he hopes that his team succeeds in the first away win in Augsburg. “At some point the series break,” said prank. In his back of his mind, however, is the 3: 3 in December 2017, where the SC had led to 3: 1 to reflection time.
He considers the current Augsburg team for better than the relegation platze was suggested, after all, she would have won against Bayern and Union Berlin. “You have power, footballing quality and a really sturdy team that has not brought that in every phase so that they had more points.” Streich also pointed out that the FCA has never extended since the 2007 ascent, “Although they were often in critical phases”. On the other hand, he wants to focus mainly on his team. “The players know that we were not satisfied with the last two performances,” he said, “we can not force anything, but we take the fight in Augsburg and want to put playful accents in one or the other scene in one or the other scene hurt – football. “
Keitel falls out, Keven Schlotterbeck back in training
After defeat in Cologne and the subsequent draw against Mainz, there are also application opportunities for players who were last not or only briefly on the square. No role will play Keitel on Saturday and also in the coming weeks of Yannik. He has broken a toe in training, which is now treated conservatively. “He has bad luck, he was on a good way, but he can deal with setbacks,” commented prank the injury. On the other hand, Keven Schlotterbeck is again in the team training after continued Corona infection. In the internal defense, however, there is little change, which are more likely to expect in the offensive and possibly in midfield.
It is also possible that the young players get a chance again. Prank praised both Noah White Haupt (“He has improved in Puncto goals hazard, he is hungry, he is better, he meets better decisions.”) And Kiliann Sildillia for her good performances in the second team. Even winter new entrance Hugo Squet would have done the two third-league games well. “With us he would not come in, and nothing can replace playing,” said the SC coach. On Friday, however, the 19-year-old Belgian has risen into the bus to Augsburg, so will not play with the U23 against Meppen.
Special training for return to success?
The past training week is optimistic that the sports club will occur on Saturday differently than last. After the draw against Mainz he had announced to work on the “Basics”, and that it could not give such pleasant training sessions. “Close processes, organization against the ball, distances and spaces” would have been on the program this week, but also the creativity on the ball. The players had “engaged” engaged and focused “, and ultimately” it probably was fun, because We made the most with the ball “.
