With the derby win, Austria overtook their city rivals in the table and are now in fourth place with three rounds to go, which would mean direct qualification for Q3 of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Sporting director Manuel Ortlechner: "We have it in our own hands to achieve our goals. Accordingly, we'll have to be hungry, venomous and aggressive on Sunday because a strong opponent awaits us. The derby win is already history again - as nice as it was, it won't help us on Sunday, you have to prove yourself anew every weekend."

Coach Michael Wimmer: "The team has shown with the performance in the derby what it is capable of - we want to bring such a performance on the pitch every weekend. We have to take the confidence and energy from the derby win to Klagenfurt, because we have a really tough task ahead of us there. We saw three weeks ago that we need a top performance to beat Klagenfurt. Defensively, they are very compact and strong when it comes to standards, and they also have a good switching game. For us, we need to be determined going forward and keep the tempo high."
