Arminia Bielefeld s Brunner plans compact defense
The signs are also clear for him. Everyone knows that we do not arrive as a favorite, says Cedric Brunner before the game in Mönchengladbach and adds with belonging respect: There is a lot going on for us.
The memories of the game in the past season are still fresh. On April 25, also on a Sunday evening, Arminia conceded at the 0: 5 against Borussia one of the two highest defeats last season. Without Brunner, who pursued the game yellow-locked from the domestic sofa. That was not too rosy for us, the Swiss admits. On TV, it sometimes looks harder than it feels on the spot.

There you can see how crucial the head or fans can be in a stadium with the emotions. It is sometimes difficult to understand, but there are partly things that are difficult to grab and explain.
And who knows: Maybe the right-back yes even succeeded in Borussia Park his first Bundesliga hit at all. I do not shoot so many goals and in the Bundesliga we have significantly less possession than in the 2nd league, where we mostly were the dominant team, Brunner knows about the difficulty, which is also due to his position in the team. There you need a surge for luck that maybe you may be in the front of the stand-wheel situations and I fall on my head. Otherwise, we are in the back line rather deals with defending …
