FC Augsburg’s seventh day at their winter training camp has drawn to a conclusion. Manuel Baum’s side will face Royal Antwerp FC in a friendly on Friday, 11th January (15:00 CET). Ahead of the friendly against the Belgian club, FCA will train on Friday morning.
The afternoon’s match can be used for care and regeneration. “We have trained intensively in recent days. We will consequently try to go into this match in the best way possible,” said Baum. The FCA coach is using this afternoon’s friendly to allow much of the squad to rest and get some match time.
Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Sergio Córdova and Felix Götze will not train with the rest of the squad on Friday morning. Instead, they will participate in individual training sessions with the athletics coaches.
