Vienna vs FC Dornbirn

After the historic win over St. Pölten last week, Vienna will face 14th-placed FC Dornbirn in Round 23 of the ADMIRAL 2nd League on Friday evening. The match will take place at 6:10 pm, at the Birkenwiese Stadium in Vorarlberg. The match can be watched on ORF Sport+ and live on laola1.

Vienna wants more

Vienna wants to maintain the momentum after last Friday's impressive performance. After the first signs and changes appeared during the match against Stripfing in Round 21, it led to a 7:3 home win against St. Pölten. Coach Sotjoo has made some changes in the squad, including moving Kelvin Boateng to the 1st XI and the switch has paid off. Boateng was the match-winner with four goals and one assist. However, in addition to the Ghanaian, the entire attacking trio must be highlighted. Christoph Munchin, Noah Bischoff and Kelvin Boateng worked together excellently in the match, with Munchin contributing two goals and Bischoff with two assists.

Coach Soko He analyzed the match: “I think we played a really good game in the first half. We actually implemented a lot of what we had trained before. Things were not so good sometimes in the second half. But the win was really important because we narrowly lost the week before.” “We also needed a feeling of accomplishment. On the one hand, it was important for the boys to see how well it worked. On the other hand, we were not consistent and aggressive enough sometimes, but we already discussed that and we will adjust it in training.”

Return to the old workplace

The upcoming game will definitely be very special for a single player. Enes Omirovic grew up in Dornbirn and started his career with Vorarlberg. Meanwhile, he had spells at Aston Villa (U18), Young Violets and Vaduz, among others. The all-around defensive player has been in Vienna since the summer of 2023. This season he played 21 matches out of a possible 22 in the tournament, and only missed the 17th round due to his suspension due to a yellow card. He also contributed two goals and two assists. Since head coach Mohamed Sotjo was on the bench, he has mostly played at centre-back.

But this is not a problem for Omirovic: “I played in midfield and at centre-back, so I feel very comfortable in both positions. Overall I really like it in Vienna. The team has made it relatively easy for me to find my way and I have been received well. But unfortunately the season is going down.” A bit up and down, and I think we were expecting more points. But you shouldn't forget that a lot of new players joined in the summer. The next match will be very special for me. Dornbirn is my hometown club, I started playing football there when I was six years old. My age, I then celebrated promotion to the second tier and also made my professional debut – the club already has a special place in my heart – but I still want to watch the game on Friday win no matter what!

Dornbirn is in the middle of a relegation battle

The match against Dornbirn is on Friday. Vorarlberger currently sits in 14th place in the table with 19 points, which means they are in the first relegation zone. But thanks to the improvement in recent weeks, only seven points separate Dornbirn from 13th-placed Stripfing. The last three matches have all been won against SW Bregenz, Horn and most recently Amstetten. Anteo Vitahu was the golden scorer against Amstetten. He is also Vorarlberg's most dangerous player with four goals this season. But Dornbirn's defense still leaves a lot to be desired. In total, they conceded 40 goals in 22 matches.

Coach Soko He still expects a solid opponent: “The match against Dornbirn will be completely different from last time. They play very compact, have good players in attack and are usually very deep. So we have to prepare well and improve ourselves more. But we will do our best to get the points.” “The three.”

Former Dornbirn player Omirovic sees the opponent in a similar way: “I think Dornbirn should not really be underestimated. They are always capable of surprising things, but we will prepare well and hopefully we will win.”
