VfL are determined to build on Sunday’s win at Paderborn when they host Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday 8 February (15:30 CET). At the press conference ahead of the game, head coach Oliver Glasner spoke about…

…VfL’s upcoming opponents: “Düsseldorf have played very well in their last two games under Uwe Rösler. I’ve been focusing on Rösler before now, as he was coach of Malmö [VfL’s next Europa League opponents] until this winter. He always played with three or five at the back there, and he’s adopted the same approach at Düsseldorf. That system suits their team well. It’ll be up to us to prepare for their solid, compact defensive unit. The win at Paderborn was very important for us and has given us confidence. We want to get our next three points at the Volkswagen Arena.”

…the win at Paderborn: “We were finally very efficient in front of the opponents’ goal and made the most of our attacking set pieces. What we also saw, however, was that we still made too many mistakes when we had the ball. That said, we managed to create several clear-cut goalscoring chances with that possession. What pleased me the most, though, was that we kept our chins up after falling behind.”

…Daniel Ginczek and his double against Paderborn: “Daniel has obviously had a very difficult year in terms of injuries. The most important thing for a striker’s self-confidence is goals. He took his chances really well in Paderborn. I don’t think he’s reached his full potential yet, but he’s very much on the right track. Those two goals can’t be replaced with any training session. He showed what an exceptional goalscorer he is.”

…personnel: “With Wout Weghorst, it’s looking good so far. We’ll wait until tomorrow and if he’s able to complete our final training session, he’ll be involved on Saturday. Marcel Tisserand has tweaked his thigh. It’s not a muscle injury but we won’t be taking any risks. All other players are fit.”
