Freiburg (AP) – Freiburg coach Christian Streich reacted cautiously to the fact that around 4500 spectators are allowed for the away game on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) at 1. FC Union Berlin. “It is irrelevant whether I think it makes sense,” said the SC Freiburg coach on Thursday. “I assume that those responsible make their decisions in such a way that no people are at risk.”
The responsible health department approved a hygiene concept presented by 1. FC Union Berlin on Thursday and allows the event with a total of 5000 participants despite the increasing number of infections. However, chants and chants in the stands are prohibited for the audience. This is what the Berlin Infection Protection Ordinance provides. In addition, the obligation to wear a face mask in the stadium has been tightened again.
The Freiburg team had to do without fans in the 1-1 home game against Werder Bremen last weekend. Regardless of the fans, Streich expects “very aggressive and tough football”, even if Union “has improved again in terms of play”.
Before the fifth matchday, Freiburg are twelfth with five points. Union is tied in tenth place.
