Bundesliga: Corona Zoff with Mainz 05 – FC Augsburg rejects game cancellation

Corona Zoff in the Bundesliga!

Mainz has also applied to the DFL to move Saturday’s game in Augsburg. Reason: 20 people are in isolation. It would be “not the necessary number of operational and eligible players available,” says the club. According to BILD information, none of the 14 infected players is completely symptom-free.

But Augsburg really wants to play!

Managing Director Stefan Reuter (55): “We were first informed this afternoon that Mainz 05 had submitted an application to the DFL to transfer the game. According to our current information and knowledge, the game will be played on Saturday. Since the DFL has also informed us that the rules of the game are the decisive criterion, we assume that the game will also take place on Saturday in accordance with the statutes.”

Augsburg would also be ready to move to Sunday.

According to the DFL rules of the game, an application for a transfer can be granted if fewer than 16 players are available. Among them must be at least nine licensed players and among them one goalkeeper. Injured or banned actors count as available and not in the absences.

Augsburg seems suspicious that Mainz goalkeeper Finn Dahmen was initially out due to an ankle injury, but was then reported positive. FCA reserves the right to have Mainz’s corona tests presented to it.

Also, FCA are on a good run right now. They took four points from their last two games, played 1-1 against Dortmund and won 1-0 in Bielefeld.
