European Cup Round of 16 in Libenau | SK Storm

Sports meet in Graz-Libenau

There will be a very special match at the Liebnauer Stadium on Thursday. A match we have not seen like this at this stage of the international season for what seems like forever. On Thursday at 6:45 p.m., SK Sturm will host OSC Lille, one of the best French teams, in the round of 16 of the UEFA Conference League. The Black and Whites will go into this encounter with a heavy chest – in 2024, Christian Eelzer's side are still unbeaten and have won five of seven matches and drawn twice. The fourth-placed Ligue 1 side will pay special attention to winter new arrival Mika Pérez. The 21-year-old has scored five goals and one assist in seven matches. In addition to the attack, the defense will also impress with its stability in 2024. In the seven unbeaten matches, Vitezslav Jaros has only had to defend himself three times, and Luka Maric – whom he represented against WSG Tyrol – has never defended himself before. The stadium in Graz-Libenau is almost sold out and will create more of a European Cup atmosphere. The French, for their part, are also off to a good start in the new year. Out of ten competitive matches, we won six, had to concede defeat three times and drew once. According to Transfermarkt, Thursday's opposition squad is worth €221 million, while SK Sturm is worth €51 million. Slightly less than the value of the entire squad is that of top striker Jonathan David, who is valued at €50 million alone.

Food truck and bar storm

As with every home match, there will be some great activities on match day. A food truck will be placed in the stadium's forecourt, all proceeds from which will benefit the entire club, and the same goes for proceeds from Sturm Bar – which is located under the North Curve (directly below Sector 13) – also in the stadium's forecourt.
