Second division soccer team 1. FC Kaiserslautern has to do without regular goalkeeper Andreas Luthe for a league game.

    The sports court of the German Football Association (DFB) suspended the 35-year-old veteran for a championship game on Tuesday after his red card because of an emergency brake in the away game at 1. FC Heidenheim (2-2).

    Luthe, who switched from Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin to Betzenberg before the season, is expected to be replaced by substitute goalkeeper Avdo Spahic after the international break. On the tenth day of the game (October 2, 1:30 p.m. / Sky), the Red Devils welcome Eintracht Braunschweig to a duel between the promoted teams.
