Darmstadt is gearing up to take on Lautern, led by their former coach Dirk Schuster, on Saturday evening. The Böllenfalltor Stadium is sold out for the much-anticipated match.
After a string of three winless games, the second division leader is back on track to success. However, there is no sign of a heated mood in the lead-up to the game. Instead, Darmstadt is approaching it with a sense of fondness towards their former coach.
In fact, Darmstadt’s coach Torsten Lieberknecht has spoken highly of Schuster, stating that he “embodies pure expertise.” Schuster and his assistant coach Sascha Franz helped bring FCK to life and set themselves a monument for eternity by marching through from league 3 to the Bundesliga in Darmstadt.
In anticipation of the Lautern match, Schuster has remained focused on the goal of winning, no matter who the opponent may be. Meanwhile, Darmstadt is still concerned about Mathias Honsak and his adductor problems. Lieberknecht admits that it’s a risk assessment for him.
Overall, fans are looking forward to a spectacular match between the two teams. Only time will tell who will come out on top.
