The European Cup record victory should also fly the national weakening TSG Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.
“The goal must now be to create the tournament in the league”, Coach Sebastian Hoeness said after the 5:0 (2:0) in the Europa League against the hopeless Czechs of Slovan Liberec.
Gatekeeper Florian Grillitsch said the same. Now we also have to show a different face in the league and win,”said the Austrian. The Kraichgaus have only taken one point from four encounters in the Bundesliga since the brilliant victory against the Triple winner Bavaria Munich at the end of September (4:1). On Sunday (15:30 o’clock) the TSG has to compete at the VfL Wolfsburg.
The balance in the Europa League is quite different after the highest victory in the European Cup history of the TSG. With the third three in the third game, the Hoffenheimer can already plan for the intermediate round. The TSG is hardly ready to enter the first round of a Europacup competition.
