LASK fights against Hartberg Unserie

After the “Reds” from Liverpool, LASK’s next home game is against the blue-whites from Hartberg. The contrasting program of European Cup highlights and weekly fare in the Bundesliga shouldn’t be an issue for Robert Zulj and Co., the Linzers’ ambitions remain the same. If the next three points in the championship are achieved at home on Sunday (2.30 p.m.), the “Athletics” will already have four wins in a row. But people were rightly warned about Hartberg.

The East Styrians have recently been making life difficult for the Upper Austrians. Hartberg is unbeaten in the league against LASK for eight games. The balance from these games is five draws and three wins. TSV won 3-0 in Linz last October and drew 2-2 in Styria in the spring. The clash can currently be considered a top game in terms of the table. Hartberg moved up to fourth place after its third win of the season last week against Austria (2-1). Third-placed LASK is three points short.

Sleep disorders and fearlessness

In any case, the home team had to come to terms with the 1:3 loss against Liverpool. “We checked it off professionally because we are playing against very strong Hartberger again on Sunday. “You noticed that some people couldn’t sleep straight away after the impressions,” said coach Thomas Sageder, but “it’s part of being a professional that you can do that.”

Maximilian Entrup could be available again for Hartberger. The five-time goalscorer this season had to take a break last week due to back problems, but coach Markus Schopp doesn’t want to take any risks. In Linz it is also about slipping out of the role of the eternal underdog. “I don’t think we as TSV Hartberg have to be afraid of LASK. “It’s true that we want to confirm our performance,” said Schopp.
