While the title race of the Austrian soccer Bundesliga has already been decided, the relegation battle is hot.
A decision could already be made today (8.30 p.m.) – even if the chances of it are rather slim.
If Admira wins against St. Pölten, WSG Tirol would lose second place after only one season in the Oberhaus after a defeat in Mattersburg at the same time. “There is no use being nice and nice in the cabin. I have to ask some of them if they have made the relegation battle,” said Tyrol striker Stefan Maierhofer. But similar things have recently been heard in Mattersburg. “Some of us don’t know what it’s all about,” midfielder Jano said after Mattersburg’s 1-2 at the weekend against Admira. The advantage of the Burgenland is still three points, but if you were defeated you would be right in the middle of the relegation battle.
Excitement in the derby
In the Lower Austria derby between St. Pölten and Admira, both teams want to get rid of all relegation worries. The Admira would need a win in the home game, St. Pölten would even be a draw.
After the Kanters win at Austria, St. Pölten would in the best case even suffice if WSG Tirol in the rear loses in Mattersburg.
Of course, St. Pölten did not want to get involved in such arithmetic games. “We have it in our own hands, that’s the best thing. We have two games. If we win one of them, we can start the next season with confidence,” said striker Daniel Schütz. For his coach, “a final is already waiting”. Robert Ibertsberger was allowed to take a deep breath after the surprise success at Austria, but the route to the season goal should now be preserved. “We just have to score. We also have to approach the game in the same way,” said the Salzburg player, whose contract, which expires at the end of the season, would automatically be extended by another year if the class remained.
