The eltmanners are also hoping for a slip-up by table leader niederviehbach at VGF marktredwitz. VC eltmann recently suffered an extremely unfortunate defeat at the hands of the strong second-division relegation team zschopau, was outflanked in the standings by the victory of TSV friedberg, and now stands one place behind the swabians in third place in the table.
Friedberg, like table leader niederviehbach, has only lost one game, while eltmann has already lost three. However, the team from lower franconia is still unbeaten in its own home arena, having won three points in each of its three home games to date. If it goes according to the home team, this should remain so on sunday and TSV friedberg in the table to be overtaken again.
Chaser zschopau is clear favorite at home
An additional effect of such a victory was that the VCE was able to keep the chaser zschopau at a distance. The east germans are hosting neumarkt this weekend and are considered clear favorites. VC eschenbacher eltmann also hopes that niederviehbach does not win in marktredwitz. Without their regular libero, the lower bavarians will have to compete there. Marktredwitz has been known for years for great performances in top matches in its own hall and could help the VCE to be eye-level with niederviehbach at the top of the table until the christmas break.
Auswarts also strong
"Until then, however, it has been a hard slog. On sunday we must be highly concentrated and call up everything that we have trained. Friedberg is also very strong away from home", VCE captain jens werner gives his team to consider. Nevertheless, he is optimistic, because the VC in this season in their own hall with the support of his fans has always shown very good performances.
The game will not kick off on saturday evening this time, but on sunday afternoon at 4 p.M. In the georg schafer hall.
