After the game is before the game. The old Sepp-Herberger-Binse will prove to be true again next weekend. Because then less than 14 days after the European Football Championship, the 2nd and 3rd league will start operating again. In the second class, the author’s attention will again be largely limited to sensational accident staring. After all, Hamburger SV – so far a reliable guarantor of tabloid absurdities – has got company from FC Schalke 04 in this league, which is also known to be always good for a lot of bohei.
The third division season is to open in Osnabrück next Friday. According to the schedule, VfL will then host MSV Duisburg. However, it seems questionable whether the game will actually happen. Because the MSV reports, you guessed it, corona cases in its team. Three actors tested positive on Friday and the entire team was then quarantined as a precaution. The preparatory tournament planned in the own stadium with the Bundesliga clubs Borussia Dortmund and VfL Bochum last weekend therefore took place without the MSV.
Meanwhile, they are struggling with other problems at SC Verl. They have healthy players, but suddenly no longer a stadium. Cause: Rather too little instead of too much Corona, one could say flippantly. »Based on the assumption that the corona special game operations will continue, the DFB had given us great hopes that we would be able to play the majority of our home games in Verl. Due to the withdrawn restrictions on gaming, “this is no longer possible, according to the SCV in a press release on Saturday. You will now switch to Lotte, 70 kilometers away, where you will be expecting Türkgücü Munich on Sunday.
As far as sport is concerned, TSV 1860 Munich and Eintracht Braunschweig are the big contenders for the title. This was the result of a survey by the “Liga3-online” web portal among the coaches of all 20 third division teams. “They were the strongest team for me in the second half of the season, were able to keep a lot of players and strengthen themselves in a targeted manner,” said Olaf Janßen, Viktoria Köln’s coach, about the sixties. Michael Köllner, Janßen’s colleague at the Münchner Löwen, was by no means behind the mountain with his lofty ambitions: “If you finish fourth, then you cannot say next season that we want to be tenth. We hope to leave 18 teams behind, ”he clearly aimed for promotion. In addition to the two south-west warhorses 1. FC Kaiserslautern and 1. FC Saarbrücken, with 1. FC Magdeburg, the coaches also include an eastern club in the extended circle of favorites.
