Trainer Steffen Baumgart from the Football Bundesliga club 1. FC Cologne wants to cushion the additional burden in the cup week by changes in his team.
In the two-round match at VFB Stuttgart on Wednesday (20:45 o clock / sky) he will rotate. First, because we need freshness. Second, because it deserves the boys who play tomorrow, Baumgart said on Tuesday.
An application warranty has already received Torwart Marvin Schwäbe, which always stands in the cup for Cologne s number one Timo Horn between the posts. That will not change, he brings his performance, Baumgart said, He trains very well, he is a competitor. And I assume that this is becoming narrower in the long run. Center Defense Rafael Czichos falls out with a gastrointestinal infection.
The chances of duel with the ligarical Stuttgart looks Baumgart at 50:50. It s a finale, that s in every trunk round, you can only play it once. That the VfB may have to dispense with one or the other professional due to some positive coronate tests, Baumgart does not interest not. This is still a very good team that can play very good football. I can not influence who runs over the opponent, and me Be the least to deal with it.
