Red Bull Salzburg’s successful run in the Bundesliga is on Saturday (from 5 p.m. in the LIVE ticker) away against SCR Altach on the test bench.
The champions won all of the first ten rounds, a continuation of this series would be desirable from the “Bulls” point of view in order to gain confidence for the Champions League home game on Wednesday against VfL Wolfsburg. With regard to this game, coach Matthias Jaissle will probably spare one or the other regular player.
Seven players – including Brenden Aaronson, who returned late from the US national team – will not make the trip to Vorarlberg. Nevertheless, the quality in the squad is high enough to get three points, emphasized Jaissle. “If we show our performance, we have a very good chance of leaving the field as a winner. But only then. Despite our great record, we have seen that there is no sure-fire success in this league and that we work hard for every success, Wannen . “
In addition to Aaronson, Karim Adeyemi is also not in the squad, but ÖFB U21 team striker Junior Adamu gets another chance right from the start.
The Salzburg starting XI: Köhn; Kristensen, Onguene, Wöber, Ulmer; Capaldo, Camara, Seiwald; Suic; Okafor, Adamu
The Salzburg substitute bench: Mantl, Okoh, Kjaergaard, Diambou, Sesko, Guindo, Bernardo
The Altach starting XI: Casali; Dabanli, Ndiaye, Netzer; Thurnwald, Zwischenbrugger, Haudum, Edokpolor; Tartarotti; Bukta, Nuhiu.
The Altach replacement bench: Kobras, Prokop, Strauss, Bischof, Mischitz, Aigner, Abdijanovic
Rapid could get rid of a record entirely
In the event of a win in Ländle, Salzburg would be there after the first eleven championship games of this season without losing points, something that no team in the history of the league has achieved so far. In addition, the defending champion would in this case hold 15 full Bundesliga successes en suite across seasons – that would make you the sole owner of the record that is currently still shared with Rapid. The Hütteldorfer had also won 14 times in a row in 1987.
Such statistics only play a subordinate role for coach Jaissle. “The boys know that they can be the first team to win their first eleven league games in a row. And of course our goal is to get the three points. But I’ve said a couple of times: It’s not about setting records at the start of the season to break – but to be at the top in the end, “similar to the Germans.
“Unrest” in the Altach area
For Altach coach Damir Canadi, the roles are clear. “Salzburg is currently the outstanding team. If we achieve a positive result, it would be a big sensation,” said the Viennese. His team has been without a win for six games and is one point ahead of the bottom of the table WSG Tirol in penultimate place. “We are still developing. We are not yet completely satisfied. But we believe in our young players and so there will be a better picture of our team in the future,” said Canadi about the current situation.
The trend points in the right direction, emphasizes the ex-Rapid coach. “Basically, we now have more possession of the ball and we have more chances to score. If we are more effective in front of goal, the results come too.” However, Canadi also reported “unrest in our environment”, which is “harmful”. “But we know how to deal with it.”
The trainer declares that there will be newcomers soon. “We still need one or two transfer periods so that we can find the squad we want. Until then, our young players will collect minutes and develop further.”
