Berlin (dpa) - Trainer Urs Fischer from the Bundesliga soccer club 1. FC Union Berlin does not set himself a higher goal than staying in the league despite a very good starting position.

“Three points would help to get closer to our goal,” said the 54-year-old in a digital press conference on Thursday before the duel at FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky), “if we can keep Mainz at a distance, we are on the right track. "

Union has 29 points as eighth in the table before the 20th match day, Mainz has ten points as penultimate.

In addition to Grischa Prömel and Christopher Lenz, Fischer still has to do without his strikers Max Kruse, Sheraldo Becker and Anthony Ujah.

The former Mainz Ujah, who was not used this season due to an injury, had to undergo another knee operation on Wednesday.

Fischer is therefore happy that another striker, Peter Musa, was loaned out last Monday.

Musa, who is 22 years old from Slavia Prague until the end of the season, can, after consultation with the health department, have his first training session with the team on Friday and will also travel to Mainz.
