The top duo moves in lonely circles

The top duo moves in lonely circles

Three match days before the end of the preliminary round, FSV Schoningen II and FC Schunter were already determined as participants in the promotion round in the soccer district league 2. A gripping battle broke out for the remaining two places, which will drag on into the new year due to match postponements.

FC Schunter

12 games, 28 points – the FC wanted to be in the mix at the front and is doing so. "Of course, we always want to improve further, but overall, we have little to reproach ourselves for. The two defeats against Schoningen were deserved, only our 3:3 against Nordkreis really annoys me because we gave the game away unnecessarily after leading 3:1," summarizes Schunter coach Julien Wossmann. In most of the other games, his team was convincing, not only in terms of play, but also with the individual class, for example of top scorer Dominik Claus (15 goals) or Steffen Bellina.

FSV Schoningen II

When the competition named the FSV reserve as a promotion contender before the season, Schoningen's new player-coach Christopher Peine still resisted it. "The team is practically completely new. We first have to see how quickly we play in," he said at the time. The answer: very quickly! The FSV reserve is the only unbeaten team in the entire district league, defeated in the top games Schunter each clearly with 5:1 and 4:1. The goal ratio of 46:9 is also that of a promotion favorite. "We didn't expect things to go so well right away, but of course we're happy about it," Peine said recently. Meanwhile, the draws against Supplingen, Danndorf and TSV Germania (each 1:1) also show that FSV II is not invulnerable.

Raabe defies the pain

Raabe defies the pain

Still heavily drawn was Steven Raabe, as he swung on the ergometer Wednesday morning, later attending the training session of his Grizzlies Wolfsburg watched. The 20-year-old Grizzlies defender has had a tough time of it lately. On Sunday against Ingolstadt, a puck had hit him so unfortunately in the lip area that he had to be stitched with "22 to 25 stitches". How many exactly, the homegrown no longer knows. And yet, on Thursday, Raabe would prefer to be on the bus when his team travels to the away trip at the RB Munich (Friday, 19.30 o'clock) – even if he would then probably have another handicap more.

Because protecting this part of the face would only be possible with a barred visor, as junior players up to the age of 18. Year of life carry. "It's annoying and it's going to be an adjustment," says the defender, even though the days of full visor were not even a year and a half ago for him. His coach knows: "Above all, mentally he must be ready again after this cut."

Thursday morning final test for Raabe

It wasn't even a hard shot puck that hit him. But it hit him so badly that in the past few days he found it difficult to eat ("I could only take small bites") and had to resort to painkillers. "I have to admit that I underestimated the pain a little bit," he says.

Dfb cup: vfl faces brandenburg state cup winners

Dfb cup: vfl faces brandenburg state cup winners

There was a good chance that it would turn out the same way: no less than 23 balls in the draw for the first round of the DFB Cup did not yet include a direct opponent, because the respective state cups had to be interrupted because of Corona. And so Bundesliga soccer team VfL Wolfsburg does not yet know who it will face in the opening round, which starts on 11. until 14. September, will meet. The circle of potential opponents still includes four teams, all of which are still playing for the Brandenburg state cup, as the draw in Cologne on Sunday evening revealed. DFB deputy secretary general Heike Ullrich acted as the lottery fairy.

This had not been played after the quarterfinals because of Corona. Possible VfL opponents include SV Grun-Weib Lubben (Brandenburg league), SV Babelsberg 03 (regional league), FSV 63 Luckenwalde (Oberliga champion) and Union Furstenwalde (regional league). Lubben expects thereby Babelsberg, Luckenwalde the union. Both games will take place on 9. August, with the final scheduled for the 22nd. August planned, the day of the amateurs. "We and the clubs are looking forward to seeing you," wrote the Brandenburg state association in a first reaction on Facebook.

Furstenwalde trains a VfL promotion hero

Furstenwalde, which is likely to be favored as the fourth-place team in the regional league in the previous season, has a Wolfsburg promotion hero as its coach: Matthias Maucksch played 41 games for VfL in the second division between 1995 and 1997. After the Bundesliga promotion, the now 51-year-old was drawn to VfB Leipzig. Union coaches Maucksch since 2019, but it is already his second commitment in the city on the Spree.

Pandemic: were the intensive care units really overloaded?

Covid cases have accounted for "at most a quarter of all intensive care patients" in German hospitals during the pandemic. This is the result of a Group of doctors and other medical experts around the Cologne scientist Matthias Schrappe in an ad hoc paper on the corona policy.

There is a fierce argument about it on social networks. Nurses and doctors experience their everyday work differently, more dramatically ("on the edge"). The discussion under the hashtag #DiviGate Was "a slap in the face" for those who worked in intensive care units, tweets one user.

The associations criticized in the paper by Schrappe and his colleagues – first and foremost the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (Divi) – were outraged and rejected the accusations of scaremongering and manipulation "in the strongest possible terms". "Many of Schrappe's accusations are based on misjudgments and a lack of knowledge of the actual situation in hospitals," according to a joint statement released Monday by Divi, the Marburger Bund and the German Hospital Association.

Joshua kimmich: federal government hopes for insight

Joshua kimmich: federal government hopes for insight

The German government is hoping that Bayern pro Joshua Kimmich still be vaccinated. There were "clear and convincing answers from national and international experts" for people who had concerns about vaccination against the coronavirus, said Government spokesman Steffen Seibert Monday. "I hope that Joshua Kimmich will let this information all sink in again and then perhaps also decide in favor of vaccination."

Bayern star Joshua Kimmich has "personal concerns"

Seibert pointed out in this regard that Kimmich is a footballer "who millions are watching". He would thus have a "role model effect" in a vaccination, said the spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU). "The number of people vaccinated will also play a decisive role in how we in Germany can organize our coexistence during the pandemic."

Kimmich had confirmed on Saturday on the Sky channel that he had not yet been vaccinated. He has "personal concerns," "especially regarding the lack of long-term studies," the 26-year-old said. He is, however, "aware of his responsibility," adheres to hygiene measures and is tested every two to three days. Kimmich stressed that he was "not a Corona denier or vaccination opponent" and that it was "very possible that I will soon be vaccinated".
