Trend: Bayer Leverkusen without Andrich in Bergamo
Of course, Gerardo Seoane knows that the Bayer fans already opposite the Derby against the 1st FC Cologne on Sunday. All the more he calls for the full concentration on the eighth-final first leg in Bergamo from his professionals.
“For a progress, there are two games, four good halftime, a certain constancy in both games,” knows the Werkself coach and warns: “A bad half-time can charge you the quarter-finals. That’s why we are well advised to get the focus full on the To set Thursday. Then we will settle as it looks with the forces for Sunday. “
In Lombardy, Seoane will probably still have to give up Robert Andrich, who has been fighting for two weeks with a knobby. “He is still trained individually and it is questionable whether he will be there on Thursday,” explains the Swiss and shows rather pessimistic: “The tendency towards no for Thursday.” For the defensive mid-field player, which could be at best for the emergency on the bench, Exequiel Palalcios will slide into the double sectors.
Definitely will be in Bergamo Karim Bellarabi. The right outside is not yet in the team training despite good progress after a muscle fiber rupture in the thigh. Seoane: “Karim does not matter to Thursday. For Sunday it gets tight. There is certainly a possibility, but that’s still difficult to assess.”
Healing process with chic runs “very positive”
Even much more time will need scorer Patrik Schick for his comeback, which is laboratory on a deep-seat fiber rupture in the calf, in a field that is not so well blooded, “says Seoane.
Basically, the forecast is nevertheless cheap. “The healing process is very positive. He can now start with the construction training on the court,” says the coach. In the upcoming four games against Bergamo (return match), Cologne and Wolfsburg, however, the coach does not expect the Czech national forces back: “It would be amazing if he will still play before the national team break.”
