Austria Klagenfurt

Last updated: Sat 19 August 2023 08:00
In Brief

Karweina is a doubt. Unbeaten in three matches. Struggling for depth. Starting eleven shouldn't change unless Karweina returns. Hasenhüttl has left.

Looking Back

Being overly cautious cost them a potentially heroic three points in Graz last weekend. Initially they defended solidly but pushed out more following Schnegg's red card. Could have scored twice before HT. Allowed their hosts back into it in the second-half. Both teams could have edged it; draw was about fair.

Looking Ahead

Despite having had to ride their luck some of the time, they've now gone three matches unbeaten. However, they're being sorely tested because of absentees; could only name 6 out of 7 substitutes last match. Unlikely to change the starting eleven for the same reason.

Problems remain in attack with Soto and Binder both struggling with injuries, although are due back soon. Those problems have been further compounded by an injury to Karweina, which kept him out of the Sturm Graz match. Karweina is one of their main forwards so it'll be a big blow if he fails here, which may force them to push midfielder Irving forward again.

New midfielder May is carrying an injury. Unclear how serious it is. Not missed as is yet to play regularly.

Jaritz is struggling for starts, and this is a tough away game so displacing Schumacher looks unlikely. Schwarz pushing to debutise after making the bench midweek.

Defender Robatsch is carrying an injury; not missed.

Outcast striker Hasenhüttl has had his contract terminated early as he seeks to return to Germany.

In Brief

Bischof may be benched. Strauss was again absent last match. No real reason to change most of the eleven. Ingolitsch may debutise.

Looking Back

Won the Western Derby 1-0 last time out thanks to a last-gasp goal by Fadinger. Despite a slow start, they were the better side throughout, and deserved the win in the end.

Looking Ahead

Piffer, Maksimovic, and Kaiba are all fit but were recently playing with the Junior team. Their re-integration should be slow. None are missed.

Young defender Ouedraogo is back from injury but now needs to build fitness.

Midfield regular Bukta is carrying a long-term injury. He did not make either squad so far this season. Not a loss with Gebauer available, although it could be if they lose Gebauer.

Backup GK Schutzenauer is carrying an injury; not a problem whilst Stojanovic is available.

Defenders Strauss and Nelson were again absent last match. The latter is more rotation so it's not big news, but Strauss is their best defender. There isn't a reported injury, but he's been linked with a transfer to Barnsley so his head may not have been in the right place to play. He is missed.

Attacker Bischof continues to be linked with a move elsewhere, and it's showing in his displays - he's struggling. May be benched in favour of Santos. Other than that, the eleven shouldn't change.

Right-back Sandro Ingolitsch has joined on a free transfer, and may debutise. Unlikely to start after so long without game time though.
