With the qualification for Europe, Christopher Lenz wants to say goodbye to the Football Bundesliga after the season. "Everyone is almost immortal here, when we reach this goal in the second year in the Bundesliga," said the defender on Tuesday in a digital media round before the away game at the VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday (15.30 / SKY).
Union occupies the eighth place in the table before the final games in Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen as well as against RB Leipzig, with Borussia Mönchengladbach. Seven place would mean the entry into the new Conference League. "We have shown last and this year that we can exist against top teams," said Lenz, fear of the top-class opponents do not give it.

Lenz hopes for a reunion with Wolfsburg Maximilian Philipp on Saturday.

In difficult times, we have helped each other out of the hole, "said Lenz, who came to the Koepussia Mönchengladbach in the morning of Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 and awarded half a year later to the third division of Holstein Kiel.

Too strong are the impressions that Lenz has experienced in the last three years: "I've had the most beautiful time of my career here."
Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen open to trade .
Ristolainen has now been in Buffalo for eight seasons but has yet to step foot on the ice of an NHL playoff game. He has seen six different coaches behind the bench since his debut in 2013, but none of them were able to get the team to even a .500 record. The 26-year-old defenseman has been a big part of those losses, averaging nearly 24 minutes a night throughout his Buffalo career, only to post an eye-popping -163 rating in 542 games. While +/- has its obvious flaws, Ristolainen has also posted poor possession numbers throughout his career and is likely playing a bigger role than he is truly capable of.
