Max Besuschkow and Dominik Gimber – unknown? Not bad. The two play in the midfield of 96 opponents Regensburg and have scored seven goals together – as many as the Reds.
Just a small example of numbers, but it illustrates the extent of the goal crisis at Hinterseer, Weydandt, Maina & Co. Another: 96 only scored more than one goal once, but none at all in five out of ten games.
No wonder that coach Jan Zimmermann (42) longs for a goal hero. “We haven’t had the one player who made the difference for us in a game,” complains Zimbo. “You can see that with others, someone scores two goals and is the player of the day. We are still missing that a bit. Someone who wins the game for us offensively. “
Doesn’t have to be a long-term clipper like Terodde, who has already won three games (Kiel, Düsseldorf, Rostock) alone with three double packs for Schalke. Sebastian Kerk is the “top scorer” with two goals for the Reds. However, there is not much hope that Regensburg will change.
Will you find the gate on Sunday? It would be the first time in the Jahn Stadium
First snow storm. At the end of January 2020, heavy snowfall will set in with the kick-off. The reds lose their orientation and the game 0: 1.
Then fog. Just before Christmas 2020 is a real “ghost game”. In the thick fog, everyone lacks a (goal) perspective – 0: 0.

But none of this threatens. The weather forecast: clear visibility, 10 hours of sun, 12 degrees. But is that enough?
Or are the reds currently too “blind”?
“I believe in their quality”, Zimbo expresses his confidence in his offensive professionals. But the coach increases the pressure at the same time and demands: “It’s about asserting yourself better offensively. Also to win a one-on-one. We have to hold the offensive players responsible. “
Otherwise on Sunday not only the third zero number in a row, but relegation battle and 3rd league.
If the catastrophic 96 average (0.7 goals per game) remains, they will have rounded up to 24 goals by the end of the season. Only Ahlen (2009) and Braunschweig (2006) had fewer in the last 30 years in the second division – and both were relegated last.
