Bielefeld (AP) – Arminia Bielefeld’s sports director Samir Arabi hopes to use the turmoil at FC Schalke 04. The renewed coach change at Arminia’s opponent on Saturday (3.30pm / Sky) shows “how much pressure is on the kettle”, Arabi said: “We have to use that.”

For the duel between the two direct competitors in the fight against relegation, Schalke split from Manuel Baum on Friday, who had only taken the bottom of the table two and a half months ago. “It doesn’t change that much in the preparation,” said Bielefeld coach Uwe Neuhaus. “Who would show up there tomorrow would have been hard to predict even with Manuel Baum.”

For the 13th match day, Schalke is last with only four points, Bielefeld (7) comes third from the bottom. “The goal should be to equalize and, if possible, widen the gap,” said Arabi, who is also increasing pressure on Arminia after two defeats recently: “We should all try to optimize things. We have recognized that. it is so difficult. will reach our minimum goal. “
