Lusk welcomes Austria – Fast Euphoria against WSG Tirol

Lusk welcomes Austria – Fast Euphoria against WSG Tirol

With Lask and Wiener Austria, two teams will meet on Sunday in the fifth round of the German League, which have not yet set foot in the current season. After all, LASK come into their home game with a European Cup win on their sleeve. The same goes for Rapid Vienna, who go into their home game against WSG Tirol on a euphoria after a shock 1-0 win over Fiorentina. TSV Hartberg welcomes you to Austria Klagenfurt. Departure is at 5:00 pm daily.

Indeed, Lusk would have reason to be happy. On Thursday, they beat Zrinjski Mostar 2-1 at home in the first leg, and the door to qualification for the Europa League group stage is open. But the performance left much to be desired after Robert Zulley’s early brace (4th and 12th). “In the early stages, you could see how we wanted to play. We attacked hard, we were aggressive and aggressive. Then we lost the thread, maybe it was a false sense of security. I want us to stay brave in attack, the pressure works.” New coach Thomas Sageder looked back.

The 39-year-old stressed that against Austria, who have four points one less, you have to “work in a very disciplined and aggressive way”. “We know how Austria plays. They are trying to play intense, attacking football.” However, the balance of the Upper Austria team against the favorites has been very positive lately. Out of their last 17 matches, LASK have suffered only one defeat – 0-2 at home on 12 September 2021.

Austria is also hot for its second win of the season. For the first time in a junior season, the entire week can be used for training after being eliminated in the Conference League Playoffs. “Of course we would have preferred to qualify for the European Cup,” said coach Michael Wimmer. Unlike Sageder, he has some personal concerns. Johannes Handel (muscle fiber tear) is new to the long list of injuries. Dominic Fitz is also a questionable due to muscular issues. Defensive man Marvin Martins is back at least after being suspended for three games. “We have had to go through a stage like this with some failures many times and we will succeed this time as well,” Wimmer said.

With the euphoria of the European Cup at their backs, Rapid welcome WSG Tirol before they go to Fiorentina on Thursday after winning 1-0 in the first leg to reach the group stage of the Conference League. “We want to take this energy with us for the next matches and be mentally ready,” coach Zoran Barisic said in advance. And after three consecutive victories, his team wants to follow his example and not lose sight of the two leaders Salzburg and Sturm. Defender Maximilian Hoffmann said: “We want to continue. However, Barysic is likely to give some players a break. With Nicholas Kuhn recovering, the Rapid coach now has another option.

WSG coach Thomas Silberberger was looking forward to “the most amazing away game of the season”. The Tyroleans had a bad start in the new season, but after three defeats at the start against Austria Klagenfurt (1:3), Salzburg (0:3) and Altach (0:1), Silberberger’s team finally drew 1:1 against LASK. “We’re going to Vienna as obvious strangers, but of course we want to play ‘David’ in the best possible way,” said the man in his fifties. “If all goes well, we can also get something countable in Hotelldorf.” -old.

TSV Hartberg fears opponent Austria Klagenfurt as a guest. The Styrian side have not won a point in all four matches in the Bundesliga, and the Violets travel to eastern Styria with a lot of self-confidence. “It will be a very difficult match. They have good players in their ranks and are very strong. I expect an interesting match,” said Hartberg coach Marcus Schaup. Maximilian Entropp must again present the necessary goals. The 26-year-old striker is still playing in the regional league last season and has already proven his skills with a solid performance, including three goals in the first rounds. “He really wants to take his chance now,” said Schaub. “You can see that not only in matches, but also in training sessions.”

Klagenfurt remains unbeaten after four matches. The opening win in WSG Tirol was followed by Klagenfurt sharing the points against the WAC, Sturm and Altach. “If someone had told me we had six points after four games, I would have signed them right before the tournament started,” said coach Pacholt, who expects to face Hartberg on an equal footing. It depends on the little things, and the shape of the day will decide.”
