At 1: 1 against Bielefeld, the FCA with the leadership in the back after the break was expired in the administrative mode – and was punished with the compensation. The realization that weinzierl mediated to his team in the analysis of this game is: If we are passive and have little own possession, it will be hard.
A decrease as last Sunday should not be repeated in Mainz and also in the following games. We all agree that it can work as in the first half. As in the second half, it is difficult to score in the Bundesliga. If the opponents find room, time and fun, they also get chances of play. Especially in Mainz that will definitely not be enough, the trainer warns. The FCA must act and actively seek the two-fighting , should not be rested or anxious after a leadership. That was the problem on Sunday, I want to get out of the team, makes Weinzierl clearly.
Maier continued to set
The FCA coach still has to do without the diseased Niklas Dorsch and Fredrik Jensen. For dorsch, as it is against the BVB and the Arminia, its former U-21 colleague Arne Maier stands in the starting element.
The Mainzer will play very dual combination, the rooms are closely, playing many long balls and demand all of us. But I am firmly convinced that we go with points from the field when we retrieve a performance as in the first half against Bielefeld , says the midfielder. The second half of the Sunday was worked up and ticked, says Maier and makes it clear: This is not possible to happen again.
