End of the season in the football regional league southwest. Relegated FC Gießen is going to North Hesse in League 4 for the last time on Saturday – they are guests at KSV Hessen Kassel.

FC Gießen’s relegation from the Regionalliga Südwest has been official for two weeks. Today (2 p.m.) coach Daniyel Cimen’s team is going to KSV Hessen Kassel on the last day of the game. The goal is clear: “We want to be different with countable things from the league,” says Daniyel Cimen.

Talks are underway: Last weekend emergency board member Turgay Schmidt confirmed that FC Gießen would start in the new round of the Hessenliga. With coach Daniyel Cimen, who has a contract until 2023 – valid for the fifth division. “We’ve had good talks over the past few days, the potential is there. But certain requirements must also be met,” says Cimen, so that the club can be competitive in the Hessen League. The 37-year-old says goodbye to his vacation on Sunday, after his return you will see how the situation at FC Gießen in terms of the Hessen League develops.

Personnel: Before that, however, we have to finish today in Kassel. The thinned-out squad, recently the contracts with Niclas Mohr and Giuseppe Di Burgio were terminated, will see growth from the U19s in northern Hesse. »We’re raising Felix Litzinger from the A-Youth. Marian Sarr and Kristian Gaudermann are missing. Sarr received a red card after 20 minutes in the 2-1 draw against TSG Hoffenheim II last weekend because of an emergency brake. A circumstance that still moves Cimen. “That was a clear wrong decision for me, as two other players could have intervened.” Meanwhile, defensive colleague Gaudermann is forced to sit out in Kassel due to his fifth yellow card. “The lads gave everything, but it wasn’t enough for the deserved point,” Cimen looks back on the 1-2 defeat against Hoffenheim II after 70 minutes. In Kassel, the FC coach will be able to fall back on 14 field players and two goalkeepers who should do it – with countable.

The opponent: The hosts from northern Hesse can easily tackle the end. KSV Hessen Kassel has been saved for quite some time, now they want to say goodbye to the fans with a home win. Coach Tobias Damm’s team also has the opportunity to break the 50-point mark by beating Gießen. With Kevin Nennhuber and Hendrik Starostzik, two former FC Gießen players are also in the ranks of the former second division team.
