Schmidt: “Three points will give us the spark we need”
A long preparation period bolstered by the international break, useful insights from the 1-1 friendly against Schaffhausen and players who are getting into their groove are all promising signs for Augsburg ahead of Saturday’s match at home against Frankfurt (14.09.19 at 15:30 CEST). Head coach Martin Schmidt is confident that his team can pull off a victory.
A long preparation period bolstered by the international break, useful insights from the 1-1 friendly against Schaffhausen and players who are getting into their groove are all promising signs for Augsburg ahead of Saturday’s match at home against Frankfurt (14.09.19 at 15:30 CEST). Head coach Martin Schmidt is confident that his team can pull off a victory. What this means in practice is expanding good passages of play over the full 90 minutes. Against a “top opponent” like Frankfurt with a “powerful offence and a solid defence,” Augsburg need a unified team performance in both halves. “We are preparing for a match with a lot of chances and with a constant battle for possession. In the end, the more clinical side will win.” However, Schmidt is confident that it will be his side who will come out on top. “We have a good offense. Florian Niederlechner and Ruben Vargas are both in good form and Michael Gregoritsch came back from the national team in high spirits. We’re even well-organised in defense.”
Three points to start off right
The high quality in the “forward and wing positions” is bolstered by the good mood in training sessions. “The right mentality is there. Everyone is highly motivated and is working towards meshing as a group. The team is feeling positive about the game.” As a result, FCA are looking for a win in order to help find some stability. The coach is convinced that the different changes he has implemented are working well so far. “All we need is that sense of achievement a win provides, which will give us the spark we need in order for us to show our true potential.”
