It is an alarm statistic that could worry 1. FC Saarbrücken …
Although the FCS is only three points behind third place, there are also only five points upholstery for the first relegation place.
One that can shrink quickly. Reason: FCS has already played at home against five of the first seven third division teams, with only one win (2-1 against Magdeburg) and two draws.
Means: In the second half of the season, the FCS must travel to the top teams Braunschweig, Osnabrück, Wehen Wiesbaden and Lautern.
Does Saarbrücken have to retrofit in winter in order not to get completely caught up in the vortex of relegation?
Newcomers like Dave Gnaase (24) are currently not helping the team.
But FCS sports director Jürgen Luginger (53) says: “It is not actually planned to be active on the transfer market again in winter. But we, Uwe Koschinat and I, will certainly meet again in the next few weeks to analyze the current situation. “
One thing is clear: if the numerous injuries and failures remain, Saarbrücken could flourish instead of promotion euphoria, the deepest struggle for survival in the league. In view of the very short winter break of around three weeks, the FCS also waived a training camp.
Luginger himself took part in an hour-long discussion between the coach and the team after the Lautern bankruptcy and then said: “A lot has been put on the table. Things had to be addressed. “
