After surviving the corona infection, Manfred Schmid is back on the sidelines of Austria. Klagenfurt defended deeply in the first few minutes. In the 5th minute, Gezos headed for the ball after a cross from Suttner – he almost put the ball into his own goal. The violets became stronger as a result. But it was the people of Klagenfurt who were able to net first. After a low cross into the penalty area, De Ball landed via detours to Jaritz. Austria defender Muehl deflected the ball unluckily. The Schmid-Elf was without ideas as a result and found no ideas against the low-lying Klagenfurt.
The Grazers were also able to celebrate the opening goal away from home. At the WAC, Christian Ilzer’s team took the lead in the 26th minute. Prass prevailed against Dedic. He then laid on the free-standing Sarkaria, who left Lochoshvili with a hook and was able to accommodate the ball in the near post. In the final phase of the first half, the WAC really put the pressure on. An attempt by Vizinger was blocked by the Sturm defense team. In the 44th minute, Vizinger was about to equalize again. The WAC kicker was all alone in the penalty area, but ultimately failed because of Siebenhandl.
At 5:00 p.m., the cracker between Red Bull Salzburg and Rapid Vienna is on the program.
