Two days after returning from the training camp in Belek, only Vienna could not have expected that violets, snowfall and icy winds did not make the change any easier. Regardless, discord in the Violet defense led the visitors to fall behind early, and Grozork scored for the visitors in the third minute.
As a result, Dominic Fitz & Co needed something to get into the match, while Vienna performed well and continued to put serious stingers. Chris Frochtel was attentive to the ball and prevented worse things from happening (15 minutes), and Manuel Polster tested former Austrian Marcel Iker in the Vienna goal for the first time (20).
Then the violets got better – and to 1: 1. James Holland grabbed the ball in midfield, and Manfred Fischer passed it directly to Andreas Gruber, who used a direct pass from Harris Tabakovich to equalize (24). Iker turned a ball from Fitz into a corner (30 minutes), Tabakovich sent the ball past the goal after a simple pass (40).
Mirko Koss and Matthias Braunöder played at the break, followed by Reinhold Ranftl and Mattan Baltaxa an hour later. Aleksandar Jokic’s shot was deflected by Vienna’s new goalkeeper (62), and shortly thereafter Koss was challenged to a one-on-one match and kept a clean sheet (65). Tabakovic made two saves from a corner kick by Fitz; Kazan managed to avoid the first attempt against Vienna, then filled the second into the net (74).
A few moments later, the purple training team completely changed again, only Holland played the full 90 minutes. Armand Smrcka found the home side’s best chance at the end, and his attempt was blocked after Braunöder switched sides and edged past Ranvtel (80′).
Coach Michael Wimmer“Today’s game was mixed. I’m not at all satisfied with the initial phase, we conceded an early goal, the communication wasn’t right, and then it took 20 minutes before we could bring the pace and dynamism back into play. From that moment on it was better, it was We had chances to score, equalized and even turned the game around but I was still not satisfied with the last 20 minutes and didn’t pay any attention to this match in training yesterday but we still have to play clean and technically controlled and we only managed to a limited extent Today “.
