In the subsequent Bundesliga match between TSG Hoffenheim and FC Augsburg (3-1 success for TSG) on Monday evening, Iago was not available on the part of FCA. The Brazilian was beaten and forced to take a break. And since his substitute Mads Pedersen (muscular problems) also had to pass, center-back Felix Uduokhai moved to the left defensive side.
With a view to the upcoming 11th matchday, FCA head coach Heiko Herrlich now hopes that the injured situation in the left-back position will relax again. The trainer made this clear at the press conference after the game against the Kraichgauer when he was asked how things would be with Iago and Pedersen.
“We now have to wait for the training week to see how the healing process is. It’s only a short week, then on Sunday we will play again. There are chances that they might be there again, but we just have to wait and see.” replied the 49-year-old football teacher.
Next, the Fuggerstadters will deal with the crisis-ridden FC Schalke. It’s a home game for Augsburg and the first game of Sunday will kick off at 3:30 p.m.
