Bochum goalkeeper Manuel Riemann has suffered from muscle problems in his thighs since the away game at Bayer Leverkusen (0-1) last Saturday. The VfL goalkeeper was only able to train individually on Wednesday. Nonetheless, it looks like a mission for the weekend.

Because: Thursday Riemann really should start team training again. If there are no serious issues with the higher load in the coming days, nothing should stand in the way of a game in the home game against SC Freiburg on Saturday. But if that doesn’t work for number 1, then an experienced Bundesliga alternative would be available.
Experienced back-up on the bank
Representative Michael Esser looks back on the experience of 63 Bundesliga matches. The 34-year-old appeared in the near-legendary DFB Cup match against FC Augsburg (5-4 on penalties) when Riemann was substituted on penalties shortly before the end of extra time, and although he did not did not. saving a shot, he sank the ball decisive for the progression in the area of Augsburg.
For the game of Friborg on the other hand, it is decided: the 2G rule will be implemented. In addition, up to 20,000 spectators can visit the newcomer’s home game; like the last time against TSG Hoffenheim (2-0).
