FC Pipinsried, threatened with relegation, will play a trend-setting game at VfB Eichstätt on Saturday.

Only a win brings Pipinsried further.

Pipinsried – A trend-setting game is on the program for the regional football league team FC Pipinsried.

FCP is visiting VfB Eichstätt this Saturday at 2 p.m.

The number 18 receives the number 19 of the regional league - or better: pure relegation battle.

Under these clear signs, the third to last and the penultimate meet.

Both teams were able to celebrate a partial success last weekend.

Eichstätt did not bring a two-time lead for the juniors of 1. FC Nürnberg to the finish line, the match ended 2-2.

FC Pipinsried remained goalless at 0-0 in Rain, but at least they were zero.

Both teams have already met several times, so there are no big secrets.

But the new Pipinsrieder player-coach Herbert Paul doesn't want to be surprised.

"We watched the VfB match in Nuremberg, we know what to expect.

Eichstätt plays extremely compact and has a lot of quality in the team.

In addition, their coach Markus Mattes knows exactly how he must and will set the team perfectly,” reports FC coach Paul.

Especially in attack, VfB has an extremely dangerous striker in Fabian Eberle.

But other players also meet the highest regional league standards, including Philipp Federl and Johannes Golla.

There will be a reunion with Dominik Wolfsteiner, who played for FCP last season.

On the other side, the new Pipinsrieder team manager Ati Lushi knows VfB Eichstätt inside out.

Lushi played in Eichstätt for a few years and was even captain of the team.

After the course of the game in Rain it is obvious what advice he and above all FC coach Herbert Paul give to their team.

Paul: "I didn't have enough courage and risk going forward.

We have to do better.

It's okay if you minimize the risk, but it should have been a bit more.” Actually, a win is a must, Paul continued.

With 23 points, FCP is penultimate in the table, VfB has only two points more.

The first leg ended with a clear Pipinsrieder 4:1 win.

In a rainy battle last August, the Pipinsrieders dominated their opponents in the first half, and the 4-0 lead was clear and deserved.

However, with the veterans Felix Thiel, Niko Jelisic, Daniel Jelisic, Pablo Pigl and Bernard Mwarome, there were five games on the field that are not, or no longer, in the squad of the Ilmtaler this Saturday.

As in Rain, the Pipinsrieders have to do without the suspended Halit Yilmaz and Herbert Paul.

In addition, Daniel Jelisic (capsular injury in the ankle) and Ahanna Agbowo (shoulder dislocation) will not be in the squad.
