“Giant possibility”: Ried peaks against favorite opponents Final Final

Nine years ago, the SV Ried was last in the Cup semifinals. At that time the Upper Austrians failed at home with 1: 3 at Austria Vienna, in 2022, but everything will be different for the “Vikings”. The chances of this are good, Ried is so far still without home levels. In addition, the coming opponent Hartberg has been waiting for a victory for about a month: the last full success of the Oststeirer dated 5 February, when they could decide the Cup quarter in Rapid 2: 1 for themselves.

Despite the current weakness period of the Russ-Eleven, Ried coach Robert Ibertsberger was warned in front of the semi-final on Wednesday (18.00 pm, live! At Cup): “Even if Hartberg last has not performed so well as well, it is not very unpleasant to be played Opponents. They also had their chances against Sturm Graz, even have to go in the lead. They bring their quality to the place. ” However, this was just a stroke against storm, the only one – Ibertsberger’s opportunity to found Donis Avdijaj in the 50th minute. Otherwise, in the Styrian state capital at the 0: 3 defeat of the Blue-Whites did not see much.

Ried does not reward in Klagenfurt

Ried, on the other hand, showed an appealing performance at the current table-four Austria Klagenfurt, but did not come beyond a 1: 1 draw despite 25-minute overpass. “We were the clearly better team against Klagenfurt,” Ibertsberger Konstated, who focused on the Cup duel immediately after the game in Carinthia: “It will not be a problem to bring the freshness again. Until Wednesday we will give the team a good plan to help you know what to do. “

Additional hope may draw the Rieder from the youngest duels with Hartberg. The eastern Styrians were recently as a kind of favorite opponent, in the past six meetings left the “Vikings” never as a loser. While there were a 1: 1 draw three times in Styria, the home team continued in Upper Austria. The previously last encounter, Ante Bajic decided with his gold gate in the 34th minute.

Déjà-Vu for Ried?


The 26-year-old was optimistic about the game on Wednesday: “We can go into the game with a lot of self-confidence. We have shown that we have it on it. With the fans in the back and when we focus and disciplined, we have a big one Chance for the final. “

In a similar notch, despite the obligatory warning in front of the opponent ultimately, Ibertsberger struck: “Motivation is enough there. The fans will also appear numerous in the stadium. For us it is a huge opportunity to get into the final.” It would be for Ried the first end game deduction for ten years when Man Red Bull Salzburg was fighting for the title. A constellation, which is also this year in the range of the possible.
