Aue (AP) - Second division soccer team FC Erzgebirge Aue is aiming for its second win of the season in today's home game against 1. FC Heidenheim.

Because the Erzgebirgskreis has been declared a corona risk area due to the sharp increase in the number of infections, only 500 spectators are allowed to attend the game.

Coach Dirk Schuster expects "a strong opponent" and a "strong Heidenheim mentality team that never gives up and can play system flexibly".

The 52-year-old therefore demands a courageous appearance from his team: "We have to work defensively stable and want to give the Heidenheimers one or the other task."

While defender Steve Breitkreuz is about to make his comeback after a year-long injury break, Schuster has to do without Fabian Kalig and Gaetan Bussmann (both injured).
