The coveted European striker now holds 26 goals in 18 competitive matches this season. In the archery list of the Bundesliga, he took over now with 15 goals the sole lead before Daka and WAC attacker Shon Weissman (twelve each), who remained luckless despite some top chances. The residue of the Carinthians on Salzburg grew in the table to eleven points.
WAC holds despite early backlog against
The Wolfsberger, who lined up best, slept the beginning. After just over a minute and a half Hwang Hee Chan pulled on goal, his conclusion from an acute angle missed the goal but clearly. Two minutes later was the dream start of the guests, who also had hardly rotated staff, but perfect. A Fersler from Haaland conveyed Schmitz into his own goal. The Carinthians did extremely hard in the first 15 minutes, but then came in much better and kept the game completely open.
The episode was a racy, intense game in which it went back and forth and hits were on both sides in the air. Weissman (18th, 44th), Michael Liendl (21st) and Salzburg lender Anderson Niangbo (33rd) missed the equalizer. The 0: 2 prevented in particular a strong Alexander Kofler, who twice parried (32. 41,) against Haaland well and also brought a Junuzovic free-kick (35) worth seeing from the corner.
WAC presses on equalizer, Salzburg hits
After the restart, the Carinthian dominated the events for the time being, the Salzburg defense swam a few times properly. Andreas Ulmer blocked in the utmost need degrees of Weissman (53) and Liendl (57) to the corner. Weissman missed in the penalty area from good position with another chance (55.) also the necessary precision. In addition, Carlos Coronel had to show his skills in a Ritzmaier long shot (61).
Quite different is the Salzburg, who after the substitution of Daka in efficiency were hard to beat. Two similar actions Haaland used in the usual manner. The WAC, however, stuck in the finish, the final weakness on the foot. Christopher Wernitznig (80.) and Alexander Schmidt (85.) missed top chances. This was the first league defeat of the Carinthian since the 2: 5 in Salzburg on 10 August reality.
