FC Pinzgau Saalfelden gets a 1:1 draw against SVG Reichenau in their first home match in the Westliga.

Despite the heavy rains that started just in time for the kickoff of the first half, Markus Fürstaller’s team quickly gained advantages and was consistent in the duels. After a short phase of rippling, Tamas Tandari fired the first warning shot before Philipp Zehentmayr missed the goal by a hair’s breadth after a great ball sequence. After two more dangerous long-range shots from the advanced Moritz Eder, it burned towards the end of the first 45 minutes for the first time in front of the goal of the home team. After an ideal preliminary work and a worthwhile volley Kilian Schröcker could once again distinguish himself with a heroic act.

The home side came out of the dressing room with ambition, but quickly suffered a setback. After a foul by Schröcker, Philipp Thurnbichler converted the following penalty kick to take the lead. After that, the momentum shifted to the Tyrolean side. Tandari & Co. found it difficult to create any offensive actions worth mentioning or to create any danger. With the change in the 75th minute ended for Niklas Mühlbacher, who once again completed a straightforward game, a long and intense time at FC Pinzgau Saalfelden. In the final phase, in which the Pinzgauer were still oppressively superior, Semir Gvozdjar still managed the deserved 1-1 equalizer after a clever pass with a thoughtful finish. Shortly before the end of the game Juan Alvarez missed the winning goal.

After the game, FCPS veteran Niklas Mühlbacher, who had only just before the start of the game slipped into the starting eleven due to an injury to Denis Kahrimanovic, was given a fitting farewell in front of the main stand of the 1508 Saalfelden Arena. The defensive player will move to FK Austria Wien as of May 2, 2023 and will take over as head of the physio department in the academy.


“It was simply too little today. We had some good phases, but the bottom line is that we didn’t need what we set out to do on the pitch. After falling behind, my team fought its way back, which can certainly be seen as positive. We will quickly put the game behind us and focus on the next game against Kufstein,” Markus Fürstaller draws a first conclusion immediately after the game.

“For me, today was a very special day and, except for the game or the result, it went great for me personally. Because I only found out shortly before the start of the game that I would have to start after all, I had little time to think. That helped me. During the game, you’re in the tunnel anyway, but it only got emotional when I was substituted and when I said goodbye. I am just very grateful for my time here at FC Pinzgau Saalfelden,” says Niklas Mühlbacher.
