Football second division Fortuna Düsseldorf has failed with his attempt to lay the game on the Saturday (13:30 / SKY) at the SC Paderborn Coronabeding.
"The DFL did not grant our application for game laying. The game takes place at the SC Paderborn 07," said the club with.
The team had already made himself decimated on the way to Ostwestfalen the day before. At the Düsseldorsirs are currently 14 players and among others also head coach Daniel Thiune affected by a corona infection - apparently a professional too little to engage in the German Football League (DFL).
"Currently there are 16 players who are considered playful. It currently hangs on a player, whether played," Saturdayschef Christian Weber had confirmed on Friday.
In Paderborn, the team of co-trainer Jan Hoepner is looked after. "A normal week was not and certainly no normal preparation for a second league game," said Hoopner, who has to replace numerous power carriers. The Düsseldorfers therefore get reinforcement from the second team.
