Wacker Innsbruck vs Salzburg by Isaiah
Wacker Innsbruck was tragic once again, this time against Austria away, where they did not created any serious chance to score, and lost very easy with the score of 2-0. They were really without any opportunity to 90 minutes, and they just watched the opponent to control the tempo and fairly winning the game.
The repeated failures, combined with unacceptable performances, alarmed their administration, and raised the issue of removing coach Walter Kogler. After long discussions they decided to give another chance to Kogler, probably till the winter break. On the last day of transfers they signed former striker and top scorer Roman Wallner. Today they welcome Salzburg in a local derby, an opponent that they still have not won since 2007. Main goalkeeper Szabolcs Safar is back to main eleven, while main key defender Martin Svejnoha will sit out due to injury.

Salzburg should be happy with the home draw (1-1) against Neustadt. Despite the complete outplay, they have been found back in score early in 33th minute, and immediatly equalized with 18-year old Valon Berisha. To the second half they tried a lot, created opportunities to score, while Neustadt were trying with counters.
Due to their latest crisis after such bad results, their management responded with lot of transfers. Defenders Isaac Vorsah (Hoffenheim) and Rodnei (Kaiserslautern), forwards Sadio Mané (Metz) and Bright Edomwonyi (Westerlo), were the names, and in total those costed 8 millions. Yesterday they signed midfielder Kevin Kampl from Aalen. Meanwhile, they are close to sell first scorer in last season Jakob Jantscher to Spartak Moscow, and Argentinian striker Gonzalo Zárate was given to Young Boys for one year loan.
Anyway, now they seek their first victory after three games in the local derby against Wacker, and as their coach Roger Schmidt stated, they must win this one with any way. Main defender Franz Schiemer is out injured, while important defensive midfielder Mendes is out too.
There is a vast difference between the two teams, as Wacker staggering and they are hardly able to oppose against a good Salzburg. The champions have the quality, but they have not managed to translate into points so far, while they shown lot of defensive weaknesses, the same goes on for Wacker, that's why i expect a high scoring game there.
