How Weinzierl wants to annoy the Bayern again
Games against the record champion are special for every1. For the FC Augsburg anyway. Less than 80 kilometers are between the domestic game towns and the stadium in the Munich north. Three times the Swabia have been able to beat the big favorite already a snippet, three times Markus Weinzierl was at the side line. Last in the first round of 2: 1 victory in October. Although the Augsburg coach is always happy to return to these successes and is pleased to be addressed, the 47-year-old revoked on Friday not only in memories. Much more he told how he wants to give the Favoriteschreck again with his team on Saturday (15.30, live! At Augsburg coach).
“It’s not a bonus game. We have nothing to give away or take the light shoulder. It’s about three important points,” weinzierl made clear at the press conference. That should also show itself in the staff. Even if the FCA has to do without Mads Pedersen (COVID-19) and Frederik Winther (ill), Weinzierl does not want to consider not considering the coming weeks in the relegation battle and save players for the games where the chances are better on paper: ” I think it has never gone well when you are tacted, managed or picking up something for the next weeks. Who knows what’s in three weeks. It’s about to give everything in every game. “
The time seems to play the FCA in the cards. On the one hand, you are in the form high and can lend after the victories via Wolfsburg (3: 0) and Mainz (2: 1) in the past few days from fresh self-confidence. On the other hand, the record champion on Saturday in thought may not be 100 percent on the grass. “They play the most important game this season on Tuesday, I think the focus is on it. If there is about positive for us, then the time between the two Villarreal games,” said the coach.
“If you feel like it will be hard”
First of all, against the ball Augsburg will have to act in a highest shape around Robert Lewandowski, who achieved 22 goals in 18 games against the FCA, and to keep his colleagues in chess. “It’s a fact: If you feel like it will be hard. We’ll have to take you, compact, good and present,” asked Weinzierl.
In view of this task, the coach will be glad to be able to use at least in the defensive on the last personnel in the starting staff. Worries rather prepare the attackers. “We already have a few problems. Michael Gregoritsch, Alfred Finnbogason, all players who have no rhythm. It is true that who makes the best impression. Then it will be a good plan to change early, the forces too Distribute, “revealed weinzierl.
Worried about the goal shooting, he did not have to do himself anyway, someone always met. Since the beginning of the year, the Augsburgs shot in all eleven play at least one goal. If a goal success is followed against Bayern, the club record would be discontinued from the 2015/16 season.
