Weinzierl fears defiance of FC Bayern
Augsburg’s coach Markus Weinzierl fears a defiance reaction of the record champion after the weak appearance of Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
“If the team of Julian Nagelsmann gets desire first, then it will be tremendous for us,” said Weinzierl in front of Derby on Saturday (15:30 / Sky) in the Bavarian state capital.
Nevertheless, the FCA coach sees a chance against the favorite, especially since the Swabia could also win the first leg 2: 1. “I have been able to beat the Bayern with the FCA three times. These are beautiful memories, and games against the record champion are always something special,” he said.
The relegation threatened Augsburgs drive to Siegen against Wolfsburg and Mainz anyway with a broad breast into the Allianz Arena. “We have certainly taken a positive development this season. This process is far from completed,” said Weinzierl. In the fight for the league stop, despite the recent success experiences “a long way before”.
The Augsburgs must refrain from Mads Pedersen, who was tested positive on Corona and is in domestic isolation. Frederik Winther is “slightly ill”, so weinzierl. Michael Gregoritsch resumed the training. “He probably will not be used for over 90 minutes,” said the coach.
