On Friday evening there will be a big game between Sturm Graz and Red Bull Salzburgthe Bundesliga-Season 2021/22 ushered in. The Bulls have all won the last four opening games of a Bundesliga season. The last defeat in an opening game to date was in 2016 – against Sturm Graz of all places.
On the offensive, head coach Matthias Jaissle has to think about something in his first Bundesliga game, with Sekou Koita (knee), Mergim Berisha (groin) and Noah Okafor, who suffered a hardening of the adductor area in the cup against Wels, fall three Striker out. Karim Adeyemi is probably set. It will be interesting to see whether Benjamin Sesko or Junior Adamu will appear next to him.
“We are happy that the Bundesliga is finally starting. After the mandatory victory in the Cup against Hertha Wels, there is now a cracker at the start of the league. This year’s upheaval for us was quite big. Accordingly, the development of the team is in the middle of a process that is far from over. It takes time. We are therefore curious to see to what extent our troops can implement the new content against a top opponent in the league. The game against Sturm is a good start that shows us where we stand, “said Matthias Jaissle before the start on Friday.
Maximilian Wöber expects a heated game on Friday: “We expect a very unpleasant opponent on Friday in front of a hopefully sold-out house. With fans and the atmosphere it will be a heated, duel-heavy game. It will be important that we are very toxic, especially with second balls. But our goal is to take three points with us. “
