The season finale in the Regionalliga West is hard to beat in terms of excitement. The traditional clubs Rot -Weiss Essen and Prussia Münster are tied at the top of the table – there is also no serious difference in the goal difference. RWE only has the better starting position before the last match day due to the more goal difference and the more hit.
Both teams could celebrate the championship, which also means promotion at the same time. While RWE welcomes Rot Weiss Ahlen on Saturday, Cologne II is guest in Münster.
If someone would have predicted this starting position before the match day, we would have signed it directly.
They also owe Wiedenbrück to Esseners in their own hands, who won a 0-0 against Münster in the previous week. “If someone would have predicted this starting position before the match day, we would have signed it directly. We can make it on our own, that gives us all a good feeling,” said RWE sports director and team boss Jörn Nowak.
The mood is of course different with the eagles. However, head coach Sascha Hildmann emphasized at the press conference that his players were quickly motivated after the “setback in Wiedenbrück”. “Football is crazy, everything can happen. We will give everything tomorrow to make it crazy,” said the Münster coach.
Essen has been victorious for two games against Ahlen
Statistics that will encourage Prussia in any case is the winning series of her promotion competitor against Ahlen. The team from the Ruhr area lost their last two games against the Münsterländer. However, the two games have taken place in Ahlen, which from Novak’s perspective is a serious difference.
Either way, those responsible in the remote duel will of course also find out about the result of the competitor. However, it is questionable whether you have to use your cell phone yourself: based on the mood in both stadiums, players on the square will already notice whether something happens in the parallel game.
