Coach Domenico Tedesco from the Bundesliga soccer club RB Leipzig is looking forward to the duel with his colleague Steffen Baumgart from 1. FC Köln.
He returns to the game on Friday (8:30 p.m.) after a corona infection. “First and foremost, I’m happy that he’s healthy, that he didn’t have a difficult course. I think the video showed that again,” said Tedesco on Wednesday.
Baumgart tested positive on February 2 and then had to watch the home win against SC Freiburg (1-0) on Saturday from the couch at home.
A video recording showing him loudly cheering on his team in the living room became an internet hit. “I can imagine, and I felt it first hand in Moscow (at Spartak Moscow/ed.), how difficult it is to share the excitement from home or the stands,” said Tedesco.
