Let’s travel together.

Fußball | 3. Liga: Dynamo, Aue, Zwickau und Halle: Drittliga-Check nach der XXL-Pause


Status: 01/11/2023 5:43 p.m

After the unusually long break, the 3rd division will resume on Friday (01/13/2023). Before the start we took a close look at Dynamo Dresden, Erzgebirge Aue, FSV Zwickau and Hallesche FC. How did the preparation go, how has the squad changed and what do those in charge say just before the start?

table situation

Dynamo Dresden fell short of expectations, but is the best Central German team: 9th place, 23 points, 24:20 goals

Hallescher FC gets his points almost exclusively at home, away without a win: 15th place, 16 points, 24:26 goals

FSV Zwickau fights against relegation as so often and would be – as of now – first relegated: 17th place, 16 points, 15:27 goals

Erzgebirge Aue is the disappointment of the season, never got going as a relegated team: 18th place, 14 points 16:26 goals

Results & table: 3rd league, season 22/23 right arrow That’s how the preparation went

Dynamo Dresden put in an enchanting preparation and didn’t lose a game. Even against the Italian first division club Sampdoria Genoa, the SGD had a lot to celebrate at 2: 2. In addition, there were deserved victories against league opponents FSV Zwickau (3-0) and Hallescher FC (1-0). All of Dynamo’s test matches can be found here.

The preparation of Halle FC was disturbed. But that was less due to the results than to the criticism of the HFC President Jens Rauschenbach on the sporting leadership. It doesn’t look like head coach André Meyer is firmly in the saddle. In terms of sport, not everything was in butter. Halle lost the duel against Aue at the beginning of the preparation and also had to admit defeat against Eintracht Braunschweig (1:3) in the endurance test. All test matches of the HFC, here.

The preparation of the match was as changeable as the appearances in the league FSV Zwickau. The West Saxons surprisingly won against 1. FC Magdeburg (3:2) shortly before Christmas, but had no chance against Dynamo Dresden (0:3) in early January. The dress rehearsal was successful: Oberliga club VfB Auerbach was defeated 5:1. All test matches of FSV Zwickau, here.

Erzgebirge Aue tested a lot during the XXL winter break after the messed up season and gained self-confidence with wins against league opponents Halle (1-0) and most recently Oldenburg (5-1). In addition, the team of returnee coach Pavel Dotchev made people sit up and take notice with a brisk 3:3 against 1. FC Nürnberg. In the 3rd league, the goal tally was the big problem, in preparation Aue scored as if on an assembly line. All friendlies from Erzgebirge Aue, here.

Squad: That has changed

Most of the changes were in the squad from Erzgebirge Aue. The return of Pavel Dotchev came as a bit of a surprise, but there are likely to be financial as well as sporting reasons. Dotchev brought two new assistant coaches with him, Philipp Eckardt and Panagiotis Stamatopoulos. Aue also signed Kilian Jakob, who last played for Karlsruher SC.

Philipp Riese, who was sorted out in the summer and worked as an assistant coach for the U16s and the pros, is not new to the team, but is still a newcomer. In 2023 he will be available again as a player. “As a team, we have once again organized increased competition. We need every player because we have a few English weeks ahead of us in March and are expecting very intense games,” said sporting director Matthias Heidrich.

the Hallesche FC strengthened his defense with Alexander Winkler. The 30-year-old central defender played for 1. FC Kaiserslautern until last summer and was promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga with FCK, but was not given a new contract and was recently without a club.

Dynamo Dresden is also going into the restart with a new addition. Jakob Lemmer (22/ Kickers Offenbach) should give the team fresh attack momentum. According to the SGD, the right winger brings goal danger, speed and assertiveness.

There were no changes in the squad from FSV Zwickau. The West Saxons would like to “buy” and have a need for the position of central defender in particular, but the chronically ailing FSV is not yet allowed to sign any players because the club is going through the re-licensing of the DFB.

Those are the goals

At Erzgebirge Aue, Hallesches FC and FSV Zwickau, it’s all about one thing: staying up. After 17 of 38 match days, the trio is stuck in the bottom of the table and must hope for a good start so that the pressure doesn’t get too great at the end. Dynamo Dresden, like co-relegated Aue, started with completely different goals, find themselves in midfield and will try to save the season with a strong second half. The relegation place is eight points away – so the topic of relegation is not yet completely ruled out. Only leader Elversberg (41 points, eight points more than pursuer 1. FC Saarbrücken) has escaped in league 3.

That’s what coaches, players and sports directors say

Aue-Sport Managing Director Matthias Heidrich: “I think the way the season has developed so far, we will stick with the music until the end. Anything else would be wishful thinking. I would be happy to be out of the woods by the end of March to be out. It takes a period where you’re scoring solidly to get out of there.”

Toni Wachsmuth (Sports Director of FSV Zwickau): “It’s not a new situation for us. But that doesn’t mean that we take the situation lightly. We know exactly what we have to deliver. There are points that aren’t optimal We need more consistency in our own performance so that we can win the tight games. It’s our big goal to come out on top at the end of the season.”

Stefan Kutschke (SG Dynamo Dresden): “The break was unusually long and the anticipation is huge. We have better internalized the processes that the coach is asking of us. There was a relegation and an upheaval. But the time for excuses is now over and we want to show that.”

André Meyer (Halleschen FC coach): “The preparation for the second half of the season was particularly unusual because of the timing. It started extremely badly for us with the injury of captain Jonas Nietfeld. However, our training camp in Turkey in December was absolutely the right one Decision. We feel prepared for the restart, everything is subordinate to us staying in the league.”
