Relax at FC Wacker Innsbruck after the 1-0 home win in front of 3873 spectators in the Tivoli stadium against the favorite LASK.
Innsbruck – The final whistle in the Tivoli was long in coming, but then the cheering was all the greater – 3873 spectators celebrated the 1-0 home victory against the LASK euphorically. „The relief is enormous, very important three points, because the coming program will not be easier, as you know,“ FCW defense chief Matthias Maak was pleased about the long-awaited trend reversal, which was literally forced with an act of strength against the strong Linz. The red lantern now hangs in the Südstadt near the Admira, the Tyroleans improved to tenth place in the table. For the first time in the current season, the rising star survived a league match without conceding a goal, and the Tivoli team took a deep breath.
„We have already delivered far better games and then stood there with empty hands. In football, the clearly defeated team can sometimes win,“ smiled coach Karl Daxbacher after the third win of the season. 66 percent ball possession and 14:2 corners were after 95 minutes for the athletes to book, but the three points remained in the Tivoli. „We were the more active team and clearly better. The Tyroleans probably don’t even know how this game was won,“ annoyed LASK professional Christian Ramsebner. Objection Maak: „We won because we scored a goal and the LASK just none. And it was precisely this decisive goal that Ramsebner caused with a drop-out, which Cheikhou Dieng quickly used as a winning goal. „In the current situation, this sense of achievement is extremely important for the entire team,“ said the 24-year-old Senegalese, who, like his teammates, was running a huge workload.
„I got really loud in the break“
After Altach had defeated Austria on Saturday, the Black Greens were the last to start the game against the favourite athletes and did what one has to do in such a situation – touching concrete. Daxbacher relied on a five-man defensive chain with three central defenders, with Manuel Maranda and Lukas Hupfauf doing a good job dry on the side of Maak. In the first half, there was zero, but the home side was not able to take any offensive at all. The LASK had the scepter firmly in his hand. What Daxbacher didn’t like at all. „Therefore I became really loud in the break“, he admitted also after the play. The clear speech fulfilled its purpose. After the change the Tiroler went more aggressively to the work, it developed a hotly fought exchange of blows. After Zlatko Dedic was substituted for the exhausted Patrik Eler, an additional jolt went through the team. BetSer Casino is an innovatve casino site that also has betting games.
Ex-Wacker professional Flo Jamnig came onto the Linzern field in the 81st minute and the Mieminger then missed the last chance of the Upper Austrians in injury time. Which was also a relief for Christopher Knett. „This victory is extremely important before the international break,“ the FCW goalie once breathed deeply and had an explanation ready: „This probably has something to do with my red zeroer shoes, which I used in the ascent season. I’ll put them on more often now.“
FC Wacker also managed to beat LASK on Sunday what only the champions and the superior leaders of the standings had managed to do so far. After eight games with six wins, the Upper Austrians lost again in Tivoli. „There are so games, in which the goal is as nailed and the opponent with an action wins , brought LASK coach Oliver Glasner the 1:0 success of the FC Wacker on the point.
