Gameday 33: Austria Wien - Wolfsberger AC
In this game the situation is clear for me: Austria Wien currently on third place is still playing to for EL qualifing solpot on which they are at thr time. To secure this they have to win here against a team, which is playing for exactly nothing: Wolfsberg is on seventh place, they avoided relegation and are also out of reach for any European competition.
Austria Wien is, as mentioned on third place, three points behind second placed rival Rapid Wien and just three point in front of fourth placed team Grödig. So there is still the option to beat Rapid in this years Bundesliga but also to end up with nothing. With a win today Austria can go equal with Rapid in the table, who are playing vs Grödig on Sunday. So this weekend we could see the decision in EL fight.
Since Gager is coach of Austria Wien they have record of 5-3-1, also beating dominant team Salzburg with 3-0. One reason for this succes could be the good relationship between the coach and the team, because Gager knows many player from Austria second (and youth) team. He also tried experiments with different line ups ans formation. The only time whem this didn't work was the 0-1 against Rapid where he played with five defenders, two offensive winger defenders and three central backs. However, the players show passion in their games also at the last game which was won vs Wr Neustadt with 2-0 away. The only mentionable missings are Rogulj (DEF/15/1), Kienast (ST/15/4) and Koch (DEF/21/0). The first two players here can be replaced easy as the CB are all at the same level and Rogulj missing isn't a big problem, Kienast 14 games were most times when he was changed, only a replacement for Koch could be a bit more difficult.
WAC has nothing to play for anymore. Last week they lost 1-2 was Grödig at home who were having huge injuriy problems. The shown performance was disastrous and playing like this they would have lost against lower league teams too. Against Salzburg the first half wasn't really bad, but the wind was playing them i their cards. After conceding the second goal the team gave up and lost with an inferior performance 0-6. Now it going away vs Austria and coach Kühbauer said he will rotate . First GK Dobnik will not play and Kofler will make his third game this season. Defender Rnic who is supended will be replaced by Hüttenbrenner and also players who are usually on the bench in the last games like Micic, Sollbauer, Falk or Gotal could start. Coach Kühbauer also questioned the motivation and wants to see his team fighting.
For me there is only one team which can win here. Austria still has a goal to play for and WAC won't play at 100% in my opinion alsi with many changes in the starting lineup the harmony maybe isn't the best as the football from WAC already very much based on coincidents.
