With a completely reformed team and the self-confidence of the 5: 4 cup success against Hertha BSC, Eintracht Braunschweig is back on this Sunday after a two-year absence in the 2nd Bundesliga. The first opponent is 1. FC Heidenheim (Sunday, 1.30 p.m. / Sky), who only missed promotion to the Bundesliga in July in the relegation against Werder Bremen.
"We took a good feeling from the cup and saw that many things worked"said coach Daniel Meyer at a press conference on Friday. In view of the great upheaval with 12 new arrivals and 13 departures so far, this was not to be expected at this early point in the season. Meyer also warned on Friday: "We have to find each other as a team first."
In Heidenheim, too, six of the newly signed players are expected to be on the Braunschweig starting line-up again. One of them is the new head of defense Dominik Wydra, who came from FC Erzgebirge Aue in the summer. "Heidenheim is a disgusting opponent who will demand everything from us. You are very strong and go to work with a physical focus"said the Austrian on Friday.

Kupusovic has already played for several Serbian junior national teams and scored a goal in his three short appearances for Aue. As soon as he has tested negative for the corona virus twice, he should start team training at Eintracht.
In view of the increasing number of sick people, the police and public order offices in many cities in Lower Saxony want to increasingly check at the weekend whether the corona rules are being observed. For Oldenburg, for example, Lord Mayor Jürgen Krogmann announced that the city would tighten controls, especially in the catering sector. In Braunschweig, too, the police are continuing their intensive checks – violations are consistently pursued, it said.
In Braunschweig, shisha bars, among other things, were recently checked, but also other restaurants. There were no violations in bars, a restaurant or a sports facility – on the other hand, a guest in a shisha bar was without a mouth and nose covering, in another bar there was no guest list.
In the Holzminden district, the Corona crisis team announced that there will now be tougher measures against restaurateurs and traders who disregard the Corona regulations. Special "unteachable repeat offenders" should now be called more sharply to account. "It is within our discretion to meet those who do not ignore the rules with severe penalties and restrictions"said Holzminden District Administrator Michael Schünemann.
In Lower Saxony, according to the state health office, as of Friday, 14 of 45 districts and urban districts exceeded the threshold of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week: The districts of Cloppenburg, Diepholz, Emsland, Grafschaft Bentheim, Hildesheim, Northeim, Oldenburg, Osnabrück , Osterholz, Schaumburg, Vechta and Verden as well as the independent cities Osnabrück and Delmenhorst. The Hanover region (48.5) is just below that.
In its new Corona regulation, the state of Lower Saxony has now stipulated that the information provided by the State Health Office is decisive for restrictions when the values 35 and 50 are exceeded. The values of the municipalities and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) almost always deviate from this because the data are collected at different times.
Second division soccer club Eintracht Braunschweig is planning for the home game against 1. FC Nürnberg with spectators.

"It’s been an eventful year and a half. What happened in 18 months, some will not see in ten years"said Nehrig about his time in Braunschweig. "Still, it was an extremely good time, which is why I leave the team with a crying eye. I am incredibly proud to have been part of this team."

Because of the corona pandemic, the second division soccer club Eintracht Braunschweig has postponed a show planned for December for the club’s 125th birthday by half a year. The new date for the major event in the Braunschweig Volkswagen Hall should be July 1, 2021, Eintracht announced on Wednesday. "With the extension of the ban on major events until the end of the year, it is now finally clear that the show cannot take place on December 15, 2020"said chairman Christoph Bratmann, who is currently in charge of official affairs after Sebastian Ebel has resigned.
Eintracht Braunschweig continued the big upheaval after the second division promotion and terminated the contract with his previous captain Bernd Nehrig on Wednesday. The 33-year-old midfielder is moving to the regional league team Viktoria Berlin with immediate effect. "It’s been an eventful year and a half. What happened in 18 months, some will not see in ten years"said Nehrig. "Still, it was an extremely good time, which is why I leave the team with a crying eye. I am incredibly proud to have been part of this team."
Nehrig came to Braunschweig from FC St. Pauli in January 2019. In the past year and a half, he managed to stay in the 3rd division with Eintracht and then returned to the 2nd Bundesliga. "These two successes will always be associated with his name"said sports director Peter Vollmann.
The Braunschweig public prosecutor’s office has indicted other Volkswagen employees in dealing with the diesel scandal. It is about eight employees, including managers, as the investigators announced on Wednesday. The prosecutors did not mention any names.
The accused are accused of "in their respective responsible position" between November 2006 and September 2015 the installation of the manipulation software for the exhaust gas cleaning of VW diesel vehicles "promoted, supported or at least not prevented despite knowledge of illegality" to have. It is therefore about alleged fraud, false certification and competition violations as well as, in some cases, embezzlement and tax evasion.
The prosecutors had already indicted other Volkswagen employees in connection with the diesel affair at the beginning of the year. The entire investigation now relates to several dozen people. The former VW CEO Martin Winterkorn is also among them. In his case, the Braunschweig regional court has since admitted the indictment – the ex-manager has to face a public criminal case.
The court gave the district of Goslar little hope of success for the multi-million dollar claim for damages against the Asklepios clinics. The obligations for further development for the clinic in Clausthal-Zellerfeld are not described very specifically in the purchase contract, said the judge on Thursday in her preliminary legal opinion. With the civil lawsuit at the Braunschweig regional court, the Goslar district wants the company to pay a fine of 16 million euros because it believes that the clinic’s duty to further develop has been violated. (File number 8 O 2427/19)
The company sees it differently, the supply is guaranteed. The former CSU politician Peter Gauweiler, as a lawyer for the Asklepios clinics, emphasized that the preliminary assessment by the court confirmed that they were. Specifically, the dispute concerns a purchase agreement from 2003, with which three clinics in the Harz Mountains were privatized and sold at a price of 15 million euros. The paper provides for a contractual penalty of up to one million euros per year in the event of a breach of contractual obligations.
A central question in the process is what further development means in relation to the Clausthal-Zellerfeld location. The term needs to be interpreted, said the judge. The contract only specifically clarifies that there should be no closure in principle. Further development does not necessarily have to mean expanding.
The judge suggested further discussions about the future of the clinic. Both parties were also open to this. The goodwill negotiation on Thursday failed. A decision is to be announced in January.
Because of some injured players, the Basketball Löwen Braunschweig canceled the test match planned for Wednesday at the German champions Alba Berlin. The club from the Bundesliga announced on Monday.
