After 2-2 on Saturday We have TSV Hartberg and SCR Altach Tuesday evening (From 5:30 pm live and exclusively on Sky Sport Austria 4 – stream the game with SkyX Dream Pass) In the next direct duel in Tepico the Bundesliga, you want more. “The focus is clearly on the three points, we want to win this match,” Altach coach Damir Kennedy confirmed. Hartberg coach Marcus Schopp is also hoping for a win so he can continue to be among the first in the qualifying group. TSV is currently associated with Austria Vienna.
Schop said again on Monday of the poor evaluation of his attacking team’s chances, “In terms of passion and commitment, I can’t blame my players, but very few points come out.” “We have to be cooler and more efficient in front of goal,” said the 47-year-old.
“Three wins and three draws each,” said Schupp, whose team has not lost in six home matches. Altach’s latest game is a case in point. “The game itself was very good, but we should have scored more goals.”
While Hartberg is fighting for seventh place, Altach is currently seven points behind the Styrians and only four points ahead of SKN St. Pölten’s bottom. Kennedy expects the opponent “will evaluate the match just as he did in the second half on Saturday.” When they made the change, the former Rapid supervisor said, noting that Hartberg was “much better at playing 4-3-2-1.”
Altach is forced to make changes after losing chief defender Philip Netzer, who, according to Kennedy, will be out until the end of the season due to an adductor injury. The inventory of gathering training, already conducted at Hartberg, should provide information about how long the balls in the game were still being put in the game on Saturday “in their bones”. “Then we’ll see how we do the match tomorrow.”
The key to success against Hartberger, who is unbeaten in five league matches (two wins and three draws) against Altach, is in the defensive position. “We have to make sure we play very stable against them because they have the quality – especially in the offensive zone. So we have to defend well,” Kennedy said, hoping his team would give a “smart and ripped off” performance.
Both coaches also noted the high intensity due to the second English week in the indoor bath. In addition, there is a “mental burden”, thus Schop. “There are still five finals for everyone because anyone can have math problems. Everyone wants to do it as quickly as possible.” So, according to the Canadian, “It’s also a matter of will (…). I want the team to get past the pain point. Certainly, it’s not easy to play every third day. But you have big dreams and goals, and when you play in the European League, it’s no different.”
