“It’s the last game before the winter break, it’s about putting all our strength together again and putting full focus on this game. We want to go into the break with a sense of accomplishment,” the Dutchwoman said before setting off south on Saturday morning.
After having to take several breaks in October, Bruynenberg is now at her best again. “At Altach, I was able to play the full 90 minutes again. It was great fun. I feel very good.” It’s a bit annoying that the last game of the year will actually be on Sunday: “I think I can speak for the whole team when I say we would have liked to keep playing. But this is the plan, and we will put everything into it.”
“We want to qualify for the next round.”
Just like last weekend against Altach/Vorderland. “We did incredibly well there, especially the fight. We fought until the end and had a chance to win. Everyone knows how difficult it is to survive there, so we are even happier to get one point.
While the Violets of Vorarlberg were an odd side against the previously impeccable Altachers, the omens against the second division side from Carinthia are different. “Now we have a completely different match ahead of us. We are the favorites and of course we want to go to the next round. We will not underestimate the Carinthians team either, we have to play our style and be present from the beginning,” he added.
In the first round, both teams won more confidently: Carinthians won 7-0 at Uniondorf/Brahm, and Violets beat FC Söschönbrunn 16-0.
The match will take place on Sunday at 2:00pm at the Goldeckstadion in Spittal/Drau, where the Purple team clearly won the first round of the cup in the summer.
