Last home game before sharing the points – FC Blau-Weiß Linz

FC Blau-Weiß Linz welcomes FK Austria Wien to the personal Hofmann Stadium on Sunday 3 March. Kick-off is at 5 p.m.

The last home game before the points are split is next. FK Austria Vienna is a guest at the Hofmann Personal Stadium for the first time. After a 2-0 defeat to Austria Klagenfurt in the last round, the Whites want to score again at home on Sunday. The home record is also impressive. So far this season, FC Blau-Weiss Linz have scored points in eight of their first 10 home matches (W2, D6, L2). With 19 points, the team led by coach Gerald Schaeblehner is currently ranked ninth in the table, and with the exception of Stephane Hudum (ankle injury) and Kristjan Dopras (red card suspended), all players are fit for Sunday's match.

Hope for the group championship

After a 3-0 defeat in the derby on the final round of play, the Violets are worried about reaching the Championship group. Vienna is currently four points behind the top six. In order to maintain their chance, the Violets must beat FC Blau-Weiß Linz and WSG Tirol. After suffering a knee injury, the team, which includes coach Michael Wimmer, can count on starting goalkeeper Christian Früchtel for the first time on Sunday. Recently suspended players Johannes Handel and Romeo Vucic also returned. In addition to Reinhold Ranftel (fifth yellow card), Marvin Martins, Marvin Botzmann and Visnik Aslani will also be absent. Violet announced this on Friday.


“I think Austria definitely wants to show their face again. The first half of the derby was very disappointing and the defeat was a huge setback for Austria. You will probably come to us now with anger in your stomach and want to do at least a lot in Linz to make sure you still have a chance of making it.” To the top six. Basically, Austria is a very strong team anyway. Unfortunately, we felt it at the Generali Arena, where we lost 4-0 in the end. This was probably one of our worst matches in recent months. “This was probably one of our worst matches in recent months,” said manager Gerald Scheppelhner. The national team technician: “But we are also keen on revenge and we also want to show that we are capable of presenting a different performance against Austria than we did in the last match.”

“We definitely have to build on the momentum we've had in the last few games with us. I think we've also performed well in the last few games. However, there's still a lack of consistency and penetration in attack. We've been working on that this week.” And of course we want to score again in front of a sold-out house with our own fans. “I think we are well prepared and we will do everything we can to keep the points here at home in Linz,” said Marco Krenz.
