Christmas holidays are approaching, and the days of contemplation will come. After an amazing and nerve-wracking first half of the season, the entire SC Rapid Lübeck team should look forward to these quieter, football-free days.
Lately, Lübeck’s team has been in the spotlight on media attention several times, and the certainly unpleasant thing was to give up the game shortly before the end of the home game against SV Hamberge (we mentioned), which has now been spelled out by both sports. The court and the management of the SCR club itself were addressed and punished. In terms of sport, things are more than satisfactory for Blue-Yellows: With 24 points from 13 games, they are solid second during the winter break, and behind leaders 1. FC Phönix Lübeck II also have the goal best, with a 30:19 goal difference.
