Zwickau – Statistics & Current Form
The FSV Zwickau has only completed two competitive games in the new year, and yet it smells in “Zwigge”, as the black coal stronghold in the Saxon dialect is called, already after the crisis. Both matches at home against Eintracht Braunschweig (0: 1) and Fortuna Köln (0: 1) were lost. But that was not enough, because the team of coach Joe Enochs each had their own goal and strengthened additionally two direct competitors in the relegation battle. Currently, the Red-Whites are with 25 points still above the line, however, the lead on the relegation places on a counter shrunk together. No wonder, then, that some stakeholders are already sounding the alarm and talking about completely ineffective performances at the beginning of the year.
