Onguene heads Salzburg in the lead
Due to the failures of Kamil Piatkowski, Oumar Solet, Albert Vallci and Maximilian Wöber, Salzburg had a personnel bottleneck in central defense. That didn’t have a negative effect.
Ironically, Onguene, who was in the starting line-up for the first time this season, brought the guests in the front, hitting his head from the five after a Sucic corner kick. Luka Lochoshvili, who was moved into the WAC defense for the not fit Jonathan Scherzer, was not close enough to the 23-year-old from Cameroon.
The early lead played in the cards for the guests, they could concentrate on keeping control of the game, with the simultaneous opportunity to save energy for the second appearance in the “premier class” next week. The Carinthians tried hard in the game, but only became really dangerous once.
With a pole shot by Thorsten Röcher (32nd), the hosts lack the necessary luck in the end. It got even more bitter shortly before the break whistle. Gugganig saw the yellow-red card after two fouls within three minutes.
WAC outnumbered with pinpricks
WAC coach Robin Dutt subsequently switched to the retired Mario Leitgeb as a central defender. After changing sides, he had a lot of work with his colleagues, as the action took the much-anticipated course. Salzburg clearly set the tone.
Kofler was able to excel in a Kristensen shot deflected by Amar Dedic (47th). Four minutes later, the 34-year-old goalkeeper was defeated. He was powerless with an Okafor degree that had been falsified by Dominik Baumgartner.
After that, the away win should have been even higher. In a double chance, however, Benjamin Sesko failed first to Kofler, then Lochoshvili saved Capaldo’s margin in dire need on the line (85th).
Despite being outnumbered, the Carinthians tried to set accents in the finish, but were unsuccessful in the end. A shot from Salzburg loan Dedic went over it (86th), Baumgartner also missed a Vizinger free kick in the best position (90th).
