Kiel / Aue (dpa / lno) - Second division soccer team FC Erzgebirge Aue is aiming for the next surprise coup against a promotion candidate at Holstein Kiel on Saturday (1 p.m. / Sky).

If you have such a long journey ahead of you, besides good impressions you definitely want to bring something with you, ”said coach Dirk Schuster on Thursday.

At the beginning of February, the Auer wrestled a point from Hamburger SV at 3: 3.
After only being able to score points against the top teams in their home Erzgebirgsstadion, the “Veilchen” now also want to play the favorite scare away.

The Kiel team has very good offensive automatisms and with Jae-Sung Lee they have a player in their ranks who should actually play in the Bundesliga ”, said Schuster, praising the North Germans.
"For us, it means building on the performance of the past, when we managed to take points away from teams from the very top."
