Rapid is served! After the 1: 4 defeat at WAC, the record champions slipped even deeper into the crisis. It was a week to forget in total. After the 3-2 home win against LASK and the 3-1 win against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League, it was believed that there would be a turning point. But it just doesn’t want to run nationally at the moment. After 14 match days, Rapid has only 16 points on the account – far too few for the claims of the Viennese. Most recently they also suffered a 2-3 defeat in the Europa League at Dinamo Zagreb.
Now the WAC has suffered a debacle. Rapid coach Didi Kühbauer found clear words after the game: “That was torture from the 1st to the 90th minute. It was disappointing and shameful. I definitely do not advocate that you think you can go here and pass with heel, tip, 1-2-3. We had a completely different plan. One or the other player should ask himself what it means to play for Rapid. That was not recognizable. “
The Wolfsbergers, on the other hand, are cheering. Nothing can be seen of the bad start to the season. The win against Rapid was the sixth competitive game success in the sixth game. The WAC is flying high. WAC coach Robin Dutt also praised his team after the game: “The positional play was very good today, it has something to do with self-confidence. We’re just in really good shape right now. I’m really looking forward to a game like this, Rapid isn’t just anyone in Austrian football. “
After this brilliant three over Rapid, the WAC is now in second place in the table. They overtook Sturm Graz, with Graz having one game less. The game on Sunday against Altach had to be canceled due to Corona cases during a storm.
