Lübeck (AP) - The team of 1. FC Kaiserslautern was subjected to a stress test by local fans before the relegation duel at VfB Lübeck in the 3rd soccer league.
With fireworks and fire alarms in the team hotel, the red devils were brought to sleep on Saturday night.
«We're hot for today's game in Lübeck!
We don't let ourselves be disturbed by the nightly fireworks (2.25 a.m.) and the later multiple fire alarms (4.25 a.m.) in the team hotel.
What counts is on the pitch, "tweeted the 1. FCK and commented smearings on the team bus with sarcasm:" That's why we love our fans.
Thank you for the spontaneous beautification of our team bus to the Nordic Devils! "
VfB immediately apologized for its fans.
«Sorry, that's not what VfB Lübeck stands for!
We apologize to Rote Teufel for damage and disturbances during the night, with which the troublemakers believed they were acting in the name of our VfB.
It's not our style.
Relegation battle will be fought on the field, ”wrote the Lübeckers on Twitter.
VfB fans obviously expect an advantage if the Lauterer cannot compete in Lübeck rested.
Eight game days before the end of the season, the promoted team is in penultimate place and hopes to avoid relegation in the final course.
The 1st FCK only has one point left in the account and is third to last.
