🆚 FC Pinzgau Saalfelden v USK Maximarkt Anif
🏆 Salzburg Regional League Matchday 20
🏟️ 1508 SaalfeldenArena
🕖 March 18, 2023 (14:00 CET) 🇦🇹 (9:00am EDT) 🇺🇸
The start is done and it could not have gone better with the victory against SV Wals-Grünau. A strong performance and a clear success not only give the FC Pinzgau Saalfelden team a kick of self-confidence, but also an additional injection of motivation for the final three matches of the campaign.
On Saturday, Markus Fürstaller’s team will face USK Anif at the 1508 SaalfeldenArena. The Flachgauer have also made their opening game victorious after a real show of strength and are fighting in the remaining three rounds for a ticket to the upper play-off. There is practically nothing standing in the way of an exciting match, especially since the kick-off time and the weather forecast once again give hope for many spectators. However, the regional league team can certainly count on the support of Trey Fitz-Gerald (Vice President of Communications at Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer). The Fan Owned Club co-founder has been in Saalfelden for a few days and, in addition to numerous appointments, will once again attend a game live after a long time.
Michael Noggler returns to the squad after serving his suspension. David Hutter and David Rathgeb are still out due to injury and illness respectively.
“We have always played well here in the SaalfeldenArena, and we want to play to this strength on Saturday as well. We got off to a good start with the win in Wals-Grünau, which was very important for all of us. Now we have to take the next steps and continue our series. Anif is in the middle of the fight for the upper play-off and also started successfully into the spring, which makes them dangerous. I expect a good but above all very motivated opponent. It will not be easy, but we will go into this game well prepared.”
With three wins and only one loss from their last six meetings, FCPS have fared well against their opponent in recent times and have won all matches on our home grounds, including a 7:0 win in October 2021.
