Bundesliga in TICKER – LIVE: Fischer misses Austria’s lead

Wiener Austria welcomes the WAC in Favoriten today. Here with us in the sportkrone.at-LIVETICKER you won’t miss anything from this game! Current score: 0:0.

Here’s the LIVETICKER: In the past games, Austria’s dwindling strength was visibly noticeable due to the double burden. In terms of squad, the violets dragged themselves through the league, the stress on the “fit” players was extremely high. Coach Manfred Schmid was still confident before the duel with WAC: “Our players are no longer at 100 percent, but we regenerated very well last week and will go into the game much fresher. We want to successfully contest the last act before the winter break.” At the final home game of this calendar year, a crowd of more than 10,000 fans is expected in the Generali Arena. For this reason, Coach Schmid looked forward to the task with great anticipation: “I’m assuming that we’ll celebrate a great football festival together with our fans.” WAC is not taken lightly in favorites despite their poor form. “A strong opponent is waiting for us, who is lagging behind in terms of results. They have a calm, good coach and they have a high quality in attack,” Schmid analyzed. The staffing level at Austria is still tense in the run-up to the last game. Captain Lukas Mühl does not get fit in time (groin problems), Reinhold Ranftl is also questionable due to his shoulder injury. Lucas Galvao will probably return to central defense after his suspension. The first leg in Lavanttal, in which both teams were on equal footing throughout the game, was won by Austria 2-1 after a 0-1 deficit. The violets have been unbeaten in four duels with WAC, three of which ended in victory. Wolfsberger AC is currently in a sporting crisis. In the last five Bundesliga games, the Carinthians remained pointless. However, in the last round against Liga-Krösus Salzburg there was at least a playful improvement. “I saw some good approaches against Salzburg, which make me confident for the game against Austria,” said WAC coach Robin Dutt. The WAC desperately needed a win before the winter break. The Carinthians are currently in tenth place in the table, just three points ahead of bottom Hartberg. Coach Dutt is currently particularly worried about the defensive. With 34 goals conceded you have the weakest defense in the league. The fact that the WAC is not even worse off is probably due to the offensive. Tai Baribo, Maurice Malone and Co. have already scored 28 goals this season, the third most after Salzburg and LASK.
