Admira realistic before the game against Salzburg
Admira coach Andreas Herzog will of course take something with him in Wals-Siezenheim, but modest because of the difficult journey to Salzburg. “We always go into a game with optimism, but of course we are also realistic. Salzburg are the best team in Austria, have the highest speed and the highest intensity. We have to defend very well, but we also want to create opportunities. It worked very well in the first leg, ”said the ÖFB record international.
Most recently, because of the lack of a “killer mentality”, as Herzog described it, Mann conceded a 1: 2 against Ried, with 14 points they are only one point ahead of the bottom WSG Tirol. “It will be a fight for 90, 95 minutes. We’ll see if my team has learned from the last unnecessary defeats, ”said Herzog.
For serial champions Salzburg anything but a home win over Admira would be a disappointment. The big lead of the “cops” on the pursuers WAC and Sturm Graz should at least be maintained. Coach Matthias Jaissle, who is returning after his corona illness, saw after two draws in the last four rounds and the Champions League game in Lille on Tuesday, reason enough to warn against the “classic league routine”.
Salzburg will not underestimate Admira
“We have seen in the last few weeks that our opponents are making life difficult for us,” said Jaissle. In the last four league games there was a 1-1 win in Altach, a 2-2 win in Ried and most recently a 1-0 win at Vienna Austria. And in the 1-0 win in the first duel of the season with Admira in mid-August, a late goal from Junior Adamu (82nd) secured victory. “Admira did well in the first leg, positioned itself correctly and fought to the end. We are armed and shouldn’t underestimate them. “
During the international break, Jaissle’s quarantine expired – as did that of Karim Adeyemi, who sent Niklas Süle back to Salzburg as a contact from the German team after a positive corona virus test by Bavaria’s Niklas Süle. Adeyemi has been fully training since this week, “he’s fine,” said Jaissle. In terms of motivation, he was unable to establish any conclusions, even in the face of an unglamorous opponent: “It has been a great achievement for weeks and months that we have always taken the next step without having the next but one in mind.”
You are 14 points ahead of your first rival WAC or 15 points ahead of Sturm, who has one game less to play. The title “Winter King” can no longer be taken from Salzburg thanks to the better comparison with Sturm.
