The trophy was the freestyle, Saturday is compulsory.
The four-game winless series Die Roten have stopped impressively against Düsseldorf. But the 3-0 victory in the cup doesn’t bring any points. They have to get 96 Saturday (1.30 p.m., Sky live) against the penultimate Aue.
Coach Jan Zimmermann: “I am very convinced that the players are very willing to take the second victory in three days – so that we can go in the same direction again.”
Zimbo fights against setback series!
It runs like a red thread through the 96 season: Every success experience is almost always followed by a setback. 1: 1 at Werder – 0: 3 against Rostock. Cup 4: 0 in Norderstedt – 0: 2 in Dresden. 1-0 against Heidenheim – 0-4 in Darmstadt.

Only against St. Pauli (1-0) and Kiel (3-0) were there two wins in a row. But then immediately the crash with the four winless games against Sandhausen (1: 2), Nuremberg (0: 0), Schalke (0: 1) and Regensburg (1: 3).
Zimbo relies on the learning effect: “I have great hope that the guys have noticed what a big difference it is to win or lose games – how it feels. And that we learn from our mistakes. “
Decisive at 96 so far: Who will score the first goal? The Reds took the lead 1-0 in all five wins of the season (3 league, 2 cup) – and then played to zero. On the other hand, after a 0-1 deficit, 96 only got one point at Werder. That was on the 1st matchday.
No matter how, on Saturday against Aue a win is a must.
