South Summit Bayern VfB in the Junior Cup
On Saturday Freiburg against Dortmund, on Sunday Bayern against VfB (both games from 11 o'clock) - after the weekend the finalists will be fixed in the DFB Junior Cup. Three of the four remaining clubs are located in the South / Southwest season, which comes to West Primus BVB, which is also in the Youth League.
"The Junior DFB Cup is generally a fantastic competition," says Bayern coach Danny Galm in the interview with DFB.De. "The victory at the TSG Hoffenheim (4: 3 in the second round, Note d. Red.) For me personally certainly was a highlight." But also the game against Hertha BSC (quarterfinals, also 4: 3) "I will not forget so quickly. The Berliner were still undefeated until this time and led to our halftime 1: 0. But after the break we get us four Goals within 20 minutes. " It had been the "best seasonal performance" of his Bavaria, says Galm.
"All teams have their qualities," the Bayern coach issues his assessment before the deadline. The BVB has "a great squad" and does not stand by approximately in the quarterfinals of the Youth League. "The Dortmund", so galm further, "go from my point of view as a favorite in the game." But also the host of Freiburgares, which are record winners in the competition, the football teacher has a chance for: "Freiburg is a trophy team and always good for a surprise."
Bayern never stood in the final
His team meanwhile stands in front of the high hurdle of Stuttgart. At least until recently, VfB was "very constant and rightly at the top of the table. Two also not expected from Galm defeats in series make the pursuers hope in the league and on the other hand, on the other hand, to write the Bavaria in their intimans to write history. Because the German record champion was never in the final of the Junior Cup with his U 19 - already the semi-final participation is a novelty.
"For many players of this team, this semi-final is the former career yöhunkpunkt," reveals Galm. "All are focused accordingly. It's about this and now. We want to continue our success story and prevail on Sunday."
On a conspicuousness, the coach also points out: "If you look at the results of the semi-finalists, then no team has won last weekend. Maybe some were already a bit in thought in the semi-final."
