Thanks to four wins from the last five games, the 1. FC Kaiserslautern 60 points on the account and thus nine points more than the rival from the approximately 70 kilometers away Saarbrücken. With a victory, the FCK could even grow this lead even on twelve counters and at the same time further increase the upholstery in fourth place.
- Antwerp: “That must know the opponent if he expresses himself by us”
- Room could already be in the squad against Saarbrücken
At the Mission “Ascension”, on Sunday, the fans of the traditional association want to help again: After the Ludwigsparkstadion was already sold out in Saarbrücken in the first leg, the Bayenberg will also be occupied to the last place. With 46,895 cards sold (4748 cards for guest fans), the derby rises from the second largest backdrop of third division history.
It is for us to play a reward for our good performances in front of a sold-out Bezenberg.
Marco Antwerpen is also looking forward to the expected record backdrop: “It is for us to play a reward for our good performances in front of a sold-out Bayenberg,” said the 50-year-old in the run-up to the game. “In summer, we had set ourselves the goal of playing a full house once and it’s an outstanding feeling of being allowed to deny this game,” so the coach continues.
Antwerp: “That must know the opponent if he expresses himself by us”
On the announcement of Uwe Koschinat at “liga3-online.de”, Saarbrücken wanted to act offensively and put everything on victory, the coach of the table-seconds reacted. In the final phase of the season, his team is more common in the situation that the opponent must win against Kaiserslautern, which has so far been successful but only one opponent (1: 2 defeat against 1860 Munich on the 23rd matchday).
The 50-year-old was also left with the comments of the Saarbrückener Captain Manuel Zeitz. The midfielder had criticized the offensive of the red devil in the run-up to Derby (“they are behind, do not get a goal. And they are made of shit gold”). “We take note of the statements, but not judge something,” Antwerp said. “That must know the opponent if he expresses himself.”
Room could already be in the squad against Saarbrücken
The captain of the Red Devil, Jean Room, could at least once again in the squad in Derby. The 28-year-old training after his three-month break due to a disease regularly with the team, but it is not certainly whether he already represents an alternative for the game on Sunday.
It is also questionable whether Hendrick’s tweez, who wore in room absence the captain’s bind, will fit in time for the game against the table-sixth. His commitment is just like the missions of the regular Mike Wunderlich and Marlon Knight (both muscular problems) not yet fixed.
