FAC Wien vs Wattens by Dajkula
FAC will host Wattens in round 4 of the Erste Liga. FAC started the league terribly with all 3 losses and 4:11 gd. Their first match was an embarasing 1:5 loss to Austria Lustenau but they sort of picked up some pace since. At Hartberg they lost 3:1 but held to a draw till the last minutes. Again @ Ried they were leading at one time but fell in the end. That one was not so evenly matched and Ried dominated in chances heavily. So far FAC has something to offer going forward but the defese is kiling them. With almost 4 goals conceded per match but with the obligation to pick up 3 points I pressume the defense will suffer still. Lustenau exposed all their problems at home and Wattens should do the same.
Wattens started the league badly with the loss to the strong newcomers Hartberg 0:1 but are on the rise since. With Liefering Wattens played a very even match and kept the defensive shape well. With a few counters they created problems for Liefering and took that fortunate 1:0 win. At home vs Kapfenberg Wattens was clearly better and besides 1 lapse of concetration Kapfenberg was never close to testing them. I couldn`t say we will see goals in this match because the way Wattens play but so far they are clearly the better side.
Wattens played FAC 4 times and took 2 draws and 2 . All matches with 2 goals maximum.
Wattens will be missing midfielder Toplitch(0-0).
FAC has some injury problems to deal with: Becirovic(def.2-0), Markoutz (att.3-1) while Fucik(mid.0-0), Bergmeister(mid.3-0), Völkl(mid.2-0), Lubega(att.3-1) are all rated doubtful.
FAC has shown signs of being dangerous on the travels but are yet to prove themselves at home.
Wattens keeps the defense tight and won`t leave much spaces while they can exploit a potentialy big injury situation in FAC.
