“He knows what’s coming. It can definitely help us, it can add up to a few percentage points,” says Captain Jean Zimmer. “But we are the decision makers on the pitch – and he didn’t have much time either.”
Dresden has not yet won a competitive game in 2022
In contrast to Antwerp, Schuster’s Dresden colleague Guerino Capretti was able to save his job in the relegation: the German-Italian has not won any of his ten games since he started at Dynamo in early March. In Dresden, his commitment as the successor to Alexander Schmidt was viewed with suspicion, as the 40-year-old had previously only managed lower-league clubs.
Worse for the Saxons: Dynamo has not finished a single competitive game with a three in 2022. And the Dresdeners are the first club to contest this relegation for the third time. In 2011 Dynamo prevailed as a third division team against VfL Osnabrück, two years later as a second division team against the same opponent.
Dynamo Dresden is facing the most important games of the season

FCK veteran Zimmer takes a pragmatic view of all the accompanying circumstances: “Everything to zero! That’s exactly the charm of these games.” Chris Löwe knows what it’s like when the Betze is on fire. “I got to know him over the years as a homestead. With everything that goes with it, it’s the toughest opponent we could face.”, says the ex-Lauterer in the Dresden dress. Dynamo sports director Ralf Becker does not even downplay the importance of the relegation. “The two most important games of the last five to ten years will take place in the next seven days”says the ex-professional.
