Bundesliga: LASK lands a liberation against Tyrol

Marvin Potzmann (36th) gave the hosts the lead in front of 4,500 spectators in Pasching, Keito Nakamura (53rd) followed suit after the break. The Japanese scored both goals for a 2-0 win against Alaschkert in the Europa Conference League on Thursday. In the 93rd minute, Peter Michorl used a penalty for the final score.

Nakamura was a bit surprising in the starting lineup after the 21-year-old’s most recent CoV test was negative, contrary to initial assumptions. Florian Flecker was back in the first eleven after his CoV break, Philipp Wiesinger and Marko Raguz were initially back on the bench after a long downtime. WSG coach Thomas Silberberger had to remove striker Giacomo Vrioni from the squad due to muscular problems.

LASK takes over command as the game continues

In the first 20 minutes, both teams were rather cautious, with the exception of a few switching situations. LASK attacker Sascha Horvath was conspicuous, whose graduation ended in the seventh minute with WSG goalie Benjamin Ozegovic. The Tyroleans tried more often to play Thomas Sabitzer in depth, but he was mostly offside.

The LASK finally took command, slowly the attack efforts became more determined. Christoph Monschein got a supine position in his attempt (34th). Potzmann then did better and completed after a presentation by Hong Hyun Seok with a low shot into the far corner.

Premier goal for Nakamura

Four minutes after the restart, Monschein chased the ball into Ozegovic’s arms. The ex-Austrian still has only one Bundesliga goal for his new club. His first league goal was made by Nakamura, who grabbed a ball from Hong in the penalty area and surprised Ozegovic. The goalkeeper got the ball through his legs.

The WSG played partly well, but in the last third the guests were a bit too awkward and vague. LASK had a lot of possession and subsequently controlled the game, and there were always counter opportunities. Potzmann finally put Sabitzer’s LASK loan in the penalty area. The fouled competed himself, but Alexander Schlager was there in the athlete’s goal in the lower left corner from his point of view.

Substitute Wiesinger’s header (83rd) sailed next to the goal. After VAR activation and on-field control, referee Julian Weinberger also gave a penalty on the other side in stoppage time, which Michorl confidently used.

Voices for the game:

Andreas Wieland (LASK trainer): “Due to the result, we can go into the international break with a good feeling. I think we got into the game a bit slow. But we gradually increased the pace and made it 1-0 out of a nice situation. In the second half it went back and forth because WSG wanted to come back. We played the second goal very, very well with a lot of depth. I think it’s very positive that we scored three goals and not conceded. The relief is very great, of course, but it was only a step. We have to continue to improve our performance, and above all we have to score. “

Thomas Silberberger (Tirol-Trainer): “With such individual mistakes as we make with the first and second goal, it is difficult (a) to get something at LASK and (b) to get something against everyone in the Bundesliga. Then the whole brave performance of my team will not be rewarded. Where we weren’t consistent enough was in the opposing box. We should have finished playing one or the other better, especially the switching situations. “
