Salzburg had to be satisfied with 0:0 in Belgrade

The level of the match was seamlessly adapted to the dreary atmosphere in the Rajko-Mitic Stadium. The spectators got to see a match without big highlights.

Belgrade – Red Bull Salzburg may hope for their first participation in the Football Champions League in the eleventh attempt. Austria’s series champion reached 0:0 in the play-off first leg away against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday, the return leg will take place on 29 August in Wals-Siezenheim.

Triste atmosphere, match without big highlights

The level of the match was seamlessly adapted to the dull atmosphere at the Rajko-Mitic Stadium. Due to the UEFA punishment for racist abuse of Red Star fans against the Lithuanian representative Marijampole at the end of July, only 200 spectators were admitted to the 55,000-strong arena, where they were given a match without any major highlights.

The Serbian champion left the initiative to the Salzburgers on slippery terrain for the time being, renounced high pressing and was above all intent on a safe defensive. The “bulls”, on the other hand, had little or nothing to think of with the high proportion of possession of the ball, which resulted in a stalemate.

So it took until the 20th minute before the first shot on goal was fired – Zlatko Junuzovic tested Red Star Goalie Milan Borjan with a harmless Aufsitzer. Daniel Wolf (25th) and Reinhold Yabo (45th) then shot far past the goal. On the other side Branko Jovicic clearly missed the goal (39th).

After the side change, a shot from El Fardou hissed past the bar by a narrow margin (49th), Salzburg responded with a long-range shot parried by Borjan by Xaver Schlager (51st), who had been substituted for the break for Junuzovic, who was suffering from muscle problems. In the 57th minute, Red Bull goalkeeper Cican Stankovic had to stretch on a cross from Filip Stojkovic. In this phase, the Salzburgers lost the game and the harmlessness in the offensive was joined by more and more lack of concentration in the build-up game and in the defense.

On both sides fight and spasm reigned

Nevertheless, only once – in the 70th minute – did things get really dicey. After a corner, Stankovic could only parry a Milos Degenek header on instalments, a few seconds later Nikola Stojiljkovic headed over the crossbar from about eight meters. After that, the danger of scoring was already over, on both sides fight and cramp reigned paired with the fear of a goal. Only in the 90th minute Stankovic had to intervene with a fist defense at a chance of Veljko Simic.

In the end, the score was 0:0, which meant that Salzburg did not win the eighth match of the season for the first time. Red Star, on the other hand, has been unbeaten for 26 games apart from a defeat in a Cup penalty shoot-out. Casino of Dreams has a free spins every Friday which is part of their bonuses!

“Gogo out” shouts overshadowed Rapids 3-1 victory over Steaua

Despite the 3-1 win in the play-off first leg, Rapid coach Goran Djuricin was in the line of fire of the green-and-white fans. The next Wacker opponent is in a state of unrest.

Vienna – Rapid celebrated a victory on Thursday that could bring the club several million Euros. The 3-1 win against Steaua Bucharest opened the door to seventh participation in the group stage of the Europa League, and yet much of the action turned off the pitch afterwards. Coach Goran Djuricin was in the line of fire of the green and white fan scene.

Even before the kickoff, Rapid-Ultras had handed out notes at Block West, on which Djuricin and the entire presidium were criticised. The letter ended with the words “Gogo out”. In the 45th minute, the organized fan scene gave emphasis to their concern with “Gogo raus” banners and shouts – and that at the score of 2:0 against the Romanian record champion.

Posters did not influence performance

Promptly the second half started with a top chance for Steaua, in the 47th minute the Romanians scored the away goals. “But the posters didn’t affect our performance in the second half,” said captain Stefan Schwab, who made it 3-1 in the 49th minute.

The midfielder said he didn’t see much or anything of the fan action. “I only saw one poster,” Schwab said. His colleagues Mario Sonnleitner, Thomas Murg and Christoph Knasmüllner even said in unison that they had not at all noticed the demand for a Djuricin dismissal.

Sport managing director Fredy Bickel spoke in connection with the fan protests of a “very unfavorable moment. So shortly before the break you have the pictures in your head, although you might want to discuss something else. That certainly wasn’t much help.”

Djuricin himself held back perfectly with statements about the causa. When asked about the banners and chants, the 43-year-old said: “Out of respect for my team, I ask for your understanding not to answer this question, at least not today, because I have to take care of the sports, and that was work enough. It is important to me that I can look in the mirror. I work 24 hours for Rapid, that’s the most important thing.”

Special praise for Strebinger

The Viennese player preferred to talk about the performance of his team. “Our performance was very strong in the first half. We almost always attacked at the front and missed two huge chances”. Djuricin complained that in the second half you should have played some counter-opportunities better, but admitted: “In the end I’m glad that we kept the 3:1.” This means that the starting position for the return leg in Bucharest is “relatively good”.

According to Djuricin, this is mainly thanks to Goalie Richard Strebinger, who destroyed some of the top chances of the guests. For the goalkeeper there was also special praise from the other players. “I can’t remember a single serious mistake he made in the last year and a half. He is clearly a national team goalie,” Schwab explained. Players of Swag Bingo can get opportunities of winning a progressive or guaranteed jackpot here.
