The highlight of the series was certainly the match against the league club SSVg Velbert in the national cup. Here, the zebras lost after a miserable performance with 0: 2.
Coach Lieberknecht wanted to give some substitute players a chance in the Cup and ignite the competition in the squad, but this plan went backwards. So far, Duisburg had with 24 goals the most dangerous offensive in the league. In Velbert, the third division but remained for the first time this season in a competitive match without a goal. The defensive has more and more weaknesses.
In the last three competitive matches, the team of coach Lieberknecht conceded a total of eight goals. The central defenders Lukas Boeder and veteran Marvin Compper are currently weak points. But also on the outside of the relegated is vulnerable. Above all, the coach reminds the duel behavior and the lack of discipline. Despite the setbacks, the coach does not want to know anything about a fundamental discussion.
The fourth place with only three points behind first place is certainly still very neat after the big change. But the zebras have to end their negative series as soon as possible.
According to Lieberknecht, the team has to find its strengths in the first phase of the season. Here, the MSV was characterized mainly by security on the defensive and pressure in the offensive game.
The hope also rests on the home strength. With four wins and one defeat and a goal difference of 12: 6 Duisburg is still the second best home team in the league behind Unterhaching.
So could play Duisburg vs. Kaiserslautern make a prognosis on the hosts quite meaningful. Lieberknecht has to give up on Compper, Neumann, Ben Balla, Krempicki and Sabanci on Friday. In central defense, 19-year-old Vincent Gembalies will probably have to help out.
