With Salzburg’s fourth opponent of the still young Bundesliga season, things are not going as planned at all: No win, two draws, one defeat – for Wolfsberger AC with its German coach Robin Dutt, who finished fourth in the past season, is well below the Demands, especially the expectations in the club and environment.
After two draws against Sturm Graz (decent) and Miroslav-Klose-Klub Altach (average), the most recent 1:5 at home against LASK hurt brutally. Whether the wolves from Carinthia have recovered from this will be seen tomorrow from 5 p.m. in Wals-Siezenheim.
The 2-1 draw in Graz two weeks ago didn’t harm the hosts – on the contrary: the hallucination effect was not lacking, there was recently a stable 2-0 in the away opponent Hartberg, which was hardly easy. Since all favorites drew at the same time, the Jaissle-Elf was able to climb back to third place, just one point behind LASK and Rapid, who will face each other in a direct duel at the same time tomorrow. If there is a tie and Salzburg wins, the “Red Bulls” would be first again.
Two defeats in 29 matches
Against the WAC, currently only tenth in the twelve-league, the Mozart city-dwellers only lost two of the last 29 games. In doing so, they scored 88 goals, which is the maximum for a Bundesliga team against Wolfsberg. However, there was also the last home defeat ever against the wolves – 2:3 a.m. December 20th, 2020.
The rumors have been brewing for a long time, now it’s official: Benjamin Sesko, who has been associated with many top clubs, will move to Leipzig in the summer of 2023. He will sign a five-year contract there starting next season. In his 39 games for the Bundesliga team so far, the 19-year-old Slovenian, who has become a regular, has scored twelve goals.
