game start

A great chance for Robin Dutt’s team to score points against a decimated Salzburg: “Basically, my team is currently able to deliver everything in both directions, including positive things.” A partial success against Salzburg would now be urgently needed. “But you have to overperform,” admitted Dutt.

Jaissle before today’s game in Lavanttal: “Of course, the game on Wednesday took a lot of strength again. Physically, but also mentally. Even if I wanted to say something about the line-up beforehand: It’s impossible. We have to decide at short notice who will brings the necessary freshness with him. We will now pool all our strengths again and give it our all. Our goal is to achieve the maximum in the games before the winter break.”

Jaissle still has a big challenge to overcome. His squad is extremely decimated. Players such as Nicolás Capaldo, Fernando and Samson Tijani are missing from Jaissle, and many others are at least worried. Central defender Oumar Solet, who suffered a thigh injury, had to be replaced at half-time during the 4-0 loss at AC Milan on Wednesday, and his defensive colleague Maximilian Wöber was later affected. And his replacement Andreas Ulmer and midfielder Lucas Gourna-Douath were also considered questionable by the Salzburg team.

The last win for Wolfsberger AC against Red Bull Salzburg was in December 2020. At that time, the Carinthians, led by Ferdinand Feldhofer, won 3-2 in the Red Bull Arena. At home in the Lavanttal Arena, the WAC won for the last time in 2019. At that time, a Kevin Friesenbichler stormed for the Carinthians, led on the sidelines by Christian Ilzer.

Salzburg are now unbeaten against WAC for 8 games. In the league, the Red Bulls recently won 2-1 at home on matchday 4. Pavlović and Šeško gave the visitors a 1-2 lead in the first half, while Dario Vizinger headed the goal back in added time. However, this came too late, so that the Carinthians again remained without points against the series champion. In the ÖFB Cup, WAC was also eliminated by Salzburg last season, but this time it was a narrower one. The team from Wals-Siezenheim was only able to prevail after a penalty shoot-out.

Welcome to the 15th round of the Admiral Bundesliga to the match between Wolfsberger AC and RB Salzburg!

The table leader meets the 8th place in the Bundesliga. After 4 defeats in a row, the WAC now wants to score again at home against the red bulls. After losing 4-0 to AC Milan, Salzburg will continue in Lavanttal. You want to further distance yourself from Sturm Graz.
