1:1 against Lech Poznan unfortunately too little

A self-sacrificingly fighting Austria have no chance of advancing in the UEFA Europa Conference League after a worthwhile 1-1 draw against Lech Poznan.

The 21-year-old also had a second chance, but this time Poznan goalkeeper Filip Bednarek was able to save his shot after Dominik Fitz's cross (13th). Marvin Martins headed a corner from Fitz over the goal and a shot from Reinhold Ranftl also missed its target (16th, 19th). Teigl hit the crossbar with an artistic shot after a cross from Matthias Braunöder - bad luck for the Veilchen (22.).

Manuel Polster just missed the box with a shot from the turn, on the other side Nika Kvekveskiri put a free kick from the edge of the penalty area just over (37., 40.). Braunöder also set his sights too high (42nd), the game went into the break 0:0 in the best atmosphere at Viola Park.

Poznan took the lead, Keles equalised

Manfred Schmid reacted and changed to a 4-1-4-1 system after one hour. Georg Teigl went out, James Holland played as the lone six. Dominik Fitz moved to the front, Manfred Fischer and Matthias Braunöder played behind. In the 70th minute the fans of the Violets could cheer, Can Keles equalised!
