Zuzenhausen (dpa) - Due to the postponements due to the Corona quarantine from Hertha BSC, Hoffenheim's coach Sebastian Hoeneß also sees indirect consequences for the competition.
"That changes something, especially for Hertha, but also for other clubs," said the 38-year-old at an online press conference on Friday.
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim will play in the Bundesliga at SC Freiburg on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky), which had no game during the week.
The South Baden originally had to compete in Berlin and are now "fresh" after the cancellation, according to Hoeneß.
His own team has an exhausting 3-2 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Wednesday evening.
In addition, the Kraichgauer have to do without ten players in the Baden duel (3.30 p.m. / Sky).
In addition to some long-term injuries, Hoeneß is also missing Sebastian Rudy, Kevin Akpoguma, Mijat Gacinovic and Kevin Akpoguma.
Back in team training is defender Kevin Vogt.
"There's a little question mark," said Hoeness.
But Diadie Samassèkou may be out of defensive midfield due to a foot injury.
