Following FC Augsburg’s home victory against league leaders Dortmund, head coach Manuel Baum spoke to the press after training on Monday about the following topics: … the victory against Dortmund: “It’s always a surprise to beat the first-placed team, but we know what our boys are capable of. Above all, we were able to demonstrate once again what it means to be Augsburg – lots of running and intensity. I knew that we would be able to show off these aspects of our game in the match.” … Gregor Kobel: “We have always been aware of his potential and he showed that against Dortmund. Of course we hope that he can continue to do the same.” … the current injury situation: “Philipp Max and Alfred Finnbogason trained individually today. We will have to wait and see whether they will be completely fit for the game at the weekend but at the moment we still don’t know. Marco Richter and Fredrik Jensen returned to full training today. Jan Morávek has a muscular problem, as does Konstantinos Stafylidis, who had to come off during the game against Dortmund.” … the game against Leipzig: “Before the Dortmund match, we assessed our performance in the previous games against Bremen and Freiburg. Now we need to prepare ourselves for Leipzig, in order to avoid another setback. No two games are the same and every situation following a match is different. Leipzig will be aware that we are in 15th position, but also that we have just beaten Dortmund.”
