Before the 67th Bundesliga derby between 1. FC Köln and the Bayer team on Sunday (3:30 p.m. / DAZN), the focus is on the 18-year-old midfielder.

Leverkusen's coach Gerardo Seoane doesn't see a big problem in this.

Leverkusen - “That doesn't require any special preparation for him. Florian is an intelligent player and he knows that it is a special game for him in front of an audience, ”said the Bayer coach. That is part of the business. “You have to focus and concentrate on your own performance,” recommends Seoane.

Bayer goes into the neighborhood duel with a tailwind.

After the bankruptcy against FC Bayern Munich last weekend, the Leverkusen team showed a good reaction in the Europa Legaue in the 1-1 draw against Betis Sevilla and defended the championship lead with the point win.

Seoane expects an open game in Cologne.

The FC play energetic, powerful, courageous and with a lot of pressing, said Leverkusen's coach.

“I expect a lot of duels, a lot of intensity.

In the course of the game there will be rooms where there can be a real exchange of blows, ”said the Swiss.
