On March 7, shortly before 7:00 p.m., the last goal to date was scored in the southern part of the city (Mödling district). Markus Pink shot the Admira at the last second for the important home win against Altach. Almost three months later, the Bundesliga is back on Tuesday. The clubs are scheduled to play three games within a week.
In the relegation battle, the spusu SKN St. Pölten and the FC Flyeralarm Admira get down to business right from the start. With ten games within 34 days, the powers must be divided. “I think it will be very exhausting – physically and mentally,” said Christoph Riegler, goalie at spusu SKN St. Pölten. Trainer Robert Ibertsberger spoke of an “exceptional situation” and a “greatest challenge for the trainer team”.
Starting difficulties are forbidden in the struggle for relegation, the six teams in the qualification group are too close together. “There are only four points difference between twelfth and seventh place. I am convinced that anything can happen there. It is therefore important to have a positive start, ”said Ibertsberger. Admira trainer Zvonimir Soldo said: “We are all starting from scratch. It’s like a new championship, a new situation for everyone. We’ll see what comes out. “
St. Pölten starts mission at WSG Tirol
For St. Pölten, the relegation mission begins on Tuesday at the WSG Tirol. The last duel so far ended on November 9 with the highest SKN victory (5: 1) in the Bundesliga. Since then, the Lower Austrians have been eight games without a win, the coach change followed immediately before the Corona stop. For the WSG it went better before the forced break with three unbeaten games (two wins) en suite.
“You are a robust opponent who doesn’t play much across the board, but rather acts with long balls and then attacks the depth,” said Ibertsberger about the Tyroleans. “With Maierhofer, they brought in mentality to decide close games for themselves.” The “major” mentioned recently broke the cross, but should be able to play. The key forces Lukas Grgic (appendix surgery) and Ione Cabrera (calf) will be missing.
Admira is a guest at the Austria
The Admira is a guest at Wiener Austria. A surprise away would catch up with Austria and might even flirt with the EL play-off. That would be doubly exciting in a phase of change in which, in addition to Soldo, Felix Magath also joined as flyeralarm football manager and manager Amir Shapourzadeh took his hat off.
In the only test against Sturm Graz there was a 0: 0, but Soldo did not want to gain any real information. “I think no team knows where they stand after so long,” said the 52-year-old. The starting position before his third game in the Admira coaching chair is clear: “From a paper perspective, Austria is the strongest team in the qualification group. But we worked well, the team is hot. We want to show what we can do in the first game. “
By the way, when it comes to goal celebrations, players are required to hold back. There shouldn’t be any jumping on and hugs – even if the joy is twice as great after almost a three-month break. If you want to cheer anyway, you have to be creative.
