Regular goalkeeper Mark Flekken and defense chief Nico Schlotterbeck from the Bundesliga soccer team SC Freiburg are again options for the round of 16 in the DFB Cup after surviving corona infections.
“It is possible for both of them to play from the start,” said coach Christian Streich on Tuesday with a view to Wednesday’s game at league rivals TSG Hoffenheim (8:45 p.m. / Sky).
“That’s a tough number. I hope we can stand up to Hoffenheim,” said Streich before the Baden-Württemberg duel: “We’re highly motivated. It’s all about getting into the quarter-finals. That’s where we want to go.”
