Munich / Ingolstadt - Derby or no Derby?
, 31, the former Ingolstadt native, the question does not arise - the answer from the recovered TSV-1860 striker is clear.
“From our point of view, Ingolstadt is not a real derby.
We already have three games in Munich if you include Haching (see Bayern II, Türkgücü).
These three games have more of a derby character
for us. "However, things will be seen differently with the opponents next Monday, reports Lex from personal experience:" From that direction I would say that it is a derby.
In the third division we are definitely more attractive for Ingolstadt than other clubs.

Now I hope that it will continue step by step and that I will be eligible for Monday. ”Whether from the beginning or as a joker, we'll see.
