In the league, Daley Sinkgraven continues to wait for its first starting set in this season. Since Bayer 04 in the summer Mischchel Bakker committed for seven million euros transfer from Paris St. Germain, the left-back under Gerado Seoane was usually only second choice. Only in the first DFB cup round, as a Bakker missed, and in the European League home game against Ferencvaros Budapest (2: 1) the Dutchman was allowed to start without advertising for themselves.

The 26-year-old, in the last season still austere on the back at Bayer, was clearly moved to the second row, was not even on the 9th match day at the 2: 2 in Cologne in the 20-member matchday bid of the Werkself. Because Bakker and also central defending Piero Hincia did not have erroneous on the left in the defensive chain, but at least partially convincingly operated.

A four-chain would increase the application opportunities

So Sinkgraven seemed to be away from the window. But now, since Bakker expects a bone floor in the ankle joint for four weeks, the technician for Bayer could be important again. As a trained offensive midfielder, he is the game and offensive alternative in the back left compared to the defensively more stable capia.

Especially when Seoane should return to the 4-2-3-1 system after the 3-4-3 does not handle the 0: 2 against Wolfsburg, sinkgravens rise. Against the wolves, the blond button was used after the change in the game to a four-chain for the injured Bakker already as a left-back and prepared one of the few good scoring chances for Bayer in this disappointing match with a precise edge on Lucas Alario.

A break for hincia would not be surprising

Also on Wednesday at Cup from the KSC (1: 2), Sinkgraven had come to the game for Bakker. Since Hincapie was not in Cologne in full ownership of his forces or how to get a weak day against Wolfsburg, a renewed break for the young Ecuadorianer would not be surprising on Thursday in the Europa League against Real Betis or on Sunday in the League near Hertha BSC – What the chance for sinkgraven would be.
