“Rauferei”: The Descent of the confrontation between Ried and Altach

“Rauferei”: The Descent of the confrontation between Ried and Altach

Both teams fell to the end of the table three laps before the end – a small advantage for Vorarlberger before the head-to-head duel

In the relegation showdown between SV Ried and SCR Altach, the futures of both clubs in the Bundesliga are at stake. On Friday (7.30pm / Live Sky) the two favorites for relegation in the qualifying group will meet in a head-to-head duel, three rounds before the end of the directional match. However, the Altachers travel to Innviertel with a small advantage, in the event of a tie the Vorarlbergers are seeded ahead due to rounding in the half.

Both teams are 14 points behind at the bottom of the table, and the gap to WSG Tirol is already six points. For Altach coach Klaus Schmidt, the starting position is clear: “You’ll be a brawl. The team that wins there has 100% better cards.” Schmidt Alef recently disappointed with a 0-1 draw with Hartberg in front of their home crowd, while Rieder missed their first win with a 1-1 home draw at WSG Tirol in their Group VII qualifying match. Recently, there have been five consecutive draws for Maximilian Senft’s team.

“Anyone who sees the table knows what’s going on around it,” confirmed Raid kicker Marcel Ziegl. “Recent results show that it is difficult for us to bend over, but we have to win in the end.” Sneft said that “the blows to the neck in the last few games” had made his team “feel a little tougher and more resilient”. In any case, the struggle for survival in the league turned into a duel. “The pressure is two, which makes it more dynamic and interesting,” emphasized Schmidt, whose team has been waiting for a sense of accomplishment for six matches.

Therefore, no one accepted the role of favorite. “We scored six points in the qualifying group, Reid five. The team that will come out of history better in the first quarter of the hour will be favourites,” said Schmidt. Each of his players must be the same and win a personal duel. However, the coach confirmed on Thursday: “If we don’t have a tibia fracture and two open fibula fractures tomorrow, I will go to Reed with a great feeling.”

Senft was also confident and counted on the support of the home fans. “We want to take the stadium with us with passion and win our first finals together,” explained the 33-year-old. The first duel in the “lower play-off” almost a month earlier ended in Ländle with a ratio of 1: 1. Ziegel knew that “the people of Altasch would certainly not explode with self-confidence. But they have the same starting point and they will put everything on the scales.”

Upper Austria wants to crown the anniversary with a win on Friday. Exactly 25 years ago, Ridder celebrated their first major success in the club’s history by winning the cup.
