Leverkusen (dpa) – Bundesliga soccer club Bayer Leverkusen can probably plan with Edmond Tapsoba for the game at SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky).
“He still has minor problems, but I assume he’ll be there,” said coach Gerardo Seoane. The fourth-placed defender had complained of knee problems in the past few days.
Despite the still tense personnel situation, football teacher Seoane expects his team to win at the bottom. “If you want to be among the best, you have to withstand the pressure. We can still do it on our own,” said the Swiss, referring to the close race for the Champions League places. After just one point from the last two games against Leipzig (0:1) and Bochum (0:0), the gap to fifth place has shrunk to one point.
In the 7-1 first leg, the Leverkusen team managed a smashing victory. Patrik Schick contributed the only four-pack of this Bundesliga season so far. Seoane hopes that the recently unsuccessful offensive will find its way back to its old strength on Saturday: “We have to offer a lot more offensive play compared to the last few games. We lacked the power in the last third.”
