Test matches: Schalke clearly beats Poldi-Klub

Second division club Schalke 04 put an exclamation mark at the end of the training camp. The Bundesliga relegated team won 5-0 (2-0) in Mittersill, Austria, against the Polish first division club Gornik Zabrze led by Rio World Champion Lukas Podolski.

Test matches: Freiburg loses Christian Günter with a broken arm

Christian Günter from SC Freiburg broke his right forearm in the friendly against Grasshoppers Zurich (6:1). Coach Christian Streich confirmed this after the final whistle: “Christian broke his arm and is to be operated on today, the doctors are taking care of him. However, we do not yet know whether it is a clean break or not. We really hope so , because then you could use plates.”

How long he will be out is still unclear. Streich: “If it’s a clean break, it wouldn’t be too bad. Of course it’s not good either, but it wouldn’t be a cruciate ligament tear.”

In the end, the result was just a side issue. Merlin Röhl (34th) and Nicolas Höfler (38th) scored for the Breisgauer in the first half. In the second half there were almost only U23 players on the pitch, the other goals were scored by Davino Knappe (53), Maximilian Breunig (66′), Jihan Lee (70′) and Noah Darvich (90’+3′). Filipe De Carvalho (63′) scored the consolation goal for the Grashoppers.

Test matches: too much pyrotechnics – Augsburg test canceled

The test of the Bundesliga soccer club FC Augsburg against Besiktas Istanbul was canceled after just 76 minutes in Kufstein, Austria. When the score was 1-1 (0-1), the referee asked the two teams into the dressing room after the Turkish supporters had once again ignited pyrotechnics and shot firecrackers onto the pitch.

Besiktas took the lead in the first half through Jackson Muleka (41st). In the 47th minute, the Istanbul fans then caused the first interruption, after a short break Frenchman Irvin Cardona (58th) scored the Augsburg equaliser. A little later, the Turks lit up again, and the encounter ended early.
