Sturm coach Vogel promised full risk for Ajax return match

On Wednesday, Sturm Graz will make a run for the next round of the Champions League qualifiers in the return leg. However, the runner-up needs a particularly good day after the defeat in Amsterdam.

Graz – Sturm-Graz coach Heiko Vogel has announced a risk for the second qualifying round of the Football Champions League on Wednesday against Ajax Amsterdam. The Grazers are going into their home game with the burden of a 0:2 defeat.

“We’ll try everything we can,” Vogel promised at his closing press conference on Tuesday. “I for myself think that this is only possible with the handbrake released – even at the risk of a counterattack or dangerous situations for us.

Ajax is a top team. Vogel: “Anyone who goes to the stadium tomorrow and thinks we’ll nail them to the wall and keep them away from our goal, without it getting dicey for us, must go to another stadium. The people of Graz hope that their attacking efforts will be rewarded with a goal, unlike Amsterdam”.

Two storm peaks to provide offensive power

Vogel announced a starting formation with two strikers. Who will attack at Philipp Hosiner’s side, the German left open. “The second will definitely not be Philipp Hosiner,” Vogel joked. Emeka Eze and Markus Pink, who was successful at the league start on Saturday against Hartberg (3:2) like Hosiner, are possible candidates.

In the midfield, Stefan Hierländer and Peter Zulj, two ÖFB team players, seem to have an open position, which could be against Hartberg Sandi Lovric or Markus Lackner in Amsterdam. Captain Hierländer to withdraw into the defence is not an option for Vogel, because he “can also make the difference offensively”.

The Grazers don’t want to storm from the very beginning, despite the two-gate deficit. “Getting started doesn’t mean that you don’t give a chanterelle to anything else,” Vogel explained. You have to attack well-considered, with deliberation and strategy. But you don’t want to grant Ajax as much possession of the ball as you did in Amsterdam for tactical reasons. Vogel: “There is no tolerance zone there”.

Heat as an advantage for Graz?

Should the opportunity arise, Sturm wants to attack early. The landlords also hope that the great heat, which will still prevail in Graz in the evening, could accommodate them. “I think I have agreed that we have the better energy reserves,” Vogel said. Especially since the Dutch runner-up has not yet completed such a long preparation as the Austrian.

Hosiner also hopes that it could be too hot for the Dutch in Graz. “I think that Ajax is the better soccer team,” said the former Austria Goalgetter, who has returned to Austria after four years abroad. “Everything that’s a bit atypical in a football match, we take. A thunderstorm can come for all I care – anything we see an opportunity for, we take.”

Hosiner himself feels physically well in shape despite a somewhat shortened preparation. With his winning goal against Hartberg, he has once again regained his self-confidence. “I’m ready for tomorrow to walk 90 or 120 minutes against Ajax,” assured the 29-year-old. “I’m at 100 percent and I think my teammates will be, too.

Vogel sees “Game of the Year” – for the time being

The appropriate respect for Ajax is there. “But we want to show that this is our stadium,” Hosiner stressed. With a 1-0 lead, a lot could suddenly be possible again. That’s how his coach sees it. But Vogel only wanted the second leg, which has been sold out for weeks, to be understood as the “Game of the Year” to the extent that it is the next one. After that the league appearance on Saturday in Innsbruck is again the “game of the year”. Huge Slots Casino has a huge collection of exciting slots on offer.

Winger Jakob Jantscher will still be missing. “It is a very tough healing process”, Vogel said about his edema in his lower leg. “He must remain patient. I hope he will continue to be so positive”. With the exception of the ex-team player, Vogel against Ajax can draw from the full.

The heat can also be felt at Wacker in the fight for the body

FC Wacker Innsbruck will be playing the “Wäsch” before the Sturm home game.

Innsbruck – The heat is noticeable, omnipresent and discharges itself also at the green – at the morning unit of the FC Wacker, which was brought forward by coach Karl Daxbacher due to the high temperatures to 9 o’clock, the sparks flew yesterday. In the final game, physiotherapist Maximilian Schweiger and masseur Patrick Bernhaupt not only had to move out once. General Manager Alfred Hörtnagl on the outline was also sympathetic to the fight for the “Wäsch”.

But there was no trace of exaggerated hardship, the one or other injury break Captain Christoph Freitag pointed out with a wink: “Today we are partly also lying because we were already tired and the one or other step too late”. On Saturday you should be in Tivoli against Cup winner Sturm Graz on time. If you want to enjoy various games, Fairyground Slots is the casino for you!

At the Bundesliga home comeback after more than four years, everyone clearly wants to play from the start, but there are no longer many links to the eleven (see Factbox) that left the Bundesliga on 11 May 2014. Alex Gründler, who has returned to the second FCW team, shot a 3-3 equaliser against Grödig in the final minute of the match. His colleague Armin Hamzic, who was also in the opening formation, is currently looking for a club after some injury breaks. And while Alex Hauser has ended his career, Marco Kofler, another Tyrolean, has been earning his living in Germany for years.

TV expert Alfred Tatar recently said that footballers should be regarded as “migrant workers”. All you need to do is take a look at the Wacker squad, past and present. Captain Freitag, who joined FC Wacker in the summer of 2015, is Lukas Hupfauf, the long-serving field player in the black-green squad, as well as his own native Lukas Hupfauf. “The coming and going wasn’t much different at my other stations,” he notes. The native Styrian has little relationship with his opponent from Graz – during his wanderings he spent time together with Sturm’s team goalie Jörg Siebenhandl in his youth at the Academy of Vienna Austria.

Now Friday, which came from the bank at the start of the 2-1 defeat against Austria, is hot to lead FC Wacker as captain against Sturm on the field: “This home start is something different than last season. Of course I want to stand on the field and help the team. But I’m also professional enough to accept any decision,” dictated the 28-year-old midfielder before going home – where his daughter Lanea has been providing moments of happiness for over 9 months.
