Bundesliga in the ticker – SCR Altach against Austria Klagenfurt from 5 p.m. LIVE

In its first two Bundesliga duels against Austria Klagenfurt, SCR Altach went without a point and even a goal. In the third attempt, the first win and thus the next step in the right direction should succeed today with home advantage. “If you look at the number of points, that would be three points,” said coach Miroslav Klose on Friday. The Carinthians arrived in the Bundesliga in a difficult second year. The game starts at 5 p.m., we report live (below).

Here is the live ticker: Altach has only brought one win to the credit side. The 0-0 away draw against WSG Tirol last weekend interrupted a series of five defeats (including the Cup loss against Admira). “The small step was that we managed to keep a clean sheet. Now we hope that we can take the next step and the bigger step,” said Klose. The focus on the defensive – combined with a switch to a five-man chain – actually contradicts his philosophy, said the German. “I would like to play more attacking. But what I heard from the team is that the team feels safer if we play a bit more defensively.” Dominik Reiter’s absence due to a cruciate ligament rupture is an opportunity for others. “I always talk about competition.” His players have to accept that now. Klagenfurt has worked up the performance against SturmFor Austria, the 0-2 defeat against Sturm Graz was their fourth defeat of the season. After the much-celebrated 4:3 win in the Carinthian Derby, coach Peter Pacult recognized his team’s passive, hesitant performance. Physically, the Waidmannsdorfer were not up to par. “Graz was in action in the Europa League on Thursday and we had enough breaks, should have been much fresher,” said the Viennese. During the week it was important to address the mistakes relentlessly and to show the reasons “why we couldn’t build on what made us strong in the games before and brought us points”. A lack of aggressiveness shouldn’t be an issue in the “Ländle”. “Clearly, we have to accept the duels more energetically, win the second ball in midfield and seize our chances when they arise,” said left-footed Florian Jaritz, who is aiming to return after recovering from a torn ligament. “If we succeed, we have a good opportunity to write there.”
