On Thursday at 21:00 (live on Servus TV & Sky) Austria host reigning Polish champions Lech in the second group match of the UEFA Europa Conference League. The Viola Sportsbar in Vienna-Favoriten is open.
While Austria started with a 0:0 against Hapoel Be'er Scheva, Lech Poznan lost away against the clear group favourites Villarreal with a narrow 3:4: "I expect a strong opponent who showed against Villarreal how good they are, Lech is very strong in two fights and running and especially good in the transition game, they are also tactically very flexible," explains Schmid.
New signing Nikola Dovedan is not eligible to play in the Conference League group stage, he trained with the team for the first time on Wednesday and will train with the Young Violets in Vienna on Thursday. Lucas Galvao is slightly injured and questionable for Thursday's match, otherwise there is no news regarding the personnel situation.
