1. FC Magdeburg can already prepare the relegation party. From a purely mathematical point of view, the Elbe townspeople still need at least one victory. Statistically, the FCM is already saved after the three in Meppen (2: 1)!
A look at the history shows: A team from the 3rd division that was in twelfth place after the 33rd matchday has never been relegated.
FROM FAST DESCENT TO LIGHTNING RESCUE!
The result of an impressive race to catch up. The Titz team scored 20 points from the last eight games – almost as many as in the 25 (!) Games before.
A positive side effect, especially for the fans: The FCM pulled past arch-rivals Halle, which were supposed to have long since escaped, in the table, so the two derby bankruptcies (0: 2, 0: 1) can be forgotten.
FCM attacker Sören Bertram (29) admits: “Being 14 points behind was painful. That we are now above the HFC is very good and a nice snapshot. “
Magdeburg is now, again number 1 in Saxony-Anhalt! So that it stays that way until the end of the season, the series should continue on Sunday (1 p.m.) against Lübeck. The FCM, now undefeated in eight games, are hot for the next three. And would be on the safe side when it comes to rescuing the third division.
Bertram, after four points from the English week so far: “We haven’t crossed the finish line yet. But of course we try to gild the thing on Sunday against Lübeck. “
