⏫ Opposition ⏫
Though founded back in 1957, it has only been since the appointment of Franz Aigner as head coach in 2016 that SV Wals-Grünau have started to enjoy some noteworthy success. The St. Johann im Pongau native guided SVWG to a first-place finish in the Salzburger Liga in his first full season in charge and followed that up with seventh place in the Regionalliga West in 2017/18 – the best placement in the club’s history. But they could not maintain that form the following year and finished 12th in what was then a 16-team league. The last two seasons have been cut short by the coronavirus pandemic: at the time of cancellation, SVWG were fifth and last in the table respectively.
⏫ Team News ⏫
Raphael Streitwieser (ankle), Ratan Dudaew (knee) and Marcell Toth (ankle) have begun a cautious build-up. Lukas Moosmann tore a ligament in his left ankle in the last match against TSV St. Johann and will not be available for the next few weeks.
⏫ Statement ⏫
Max Mariacher: “The defeat against St. Johann has preoccupied us a bit during the week, because in our opinion it was unnecessary. In the decisive moments we lacked the last consistency, the missing percent we want to bring back on Sunday against Wals-Grünau on the court. The focus is already clearly on the upcoming home game. The players are already burning for the upcoming task and want to show that they were recently beaten below value. We want to get back on track at home.”
⏫ Head-To-Head ⏫
With five wins and a draw from their last six meetings, it’s fair to say FC Pinzgau Saalfelden have fared well against SV Wals-Grünau.
