Sturm Graz :
Actually, fans and managers of Sturm Graz had been looking forward to a nice football week. Only the first leg in the second round of qualifying for the Europa League at home against FK Mladost from Montenegro win and then a loose trophy appearance on Sunday at FC Hard. The joy was destroyed after just one minute in the match against Mladost, when the referee’s penalty whistled for the guests. The 11th was thrown out, and Sturm Graz ran the 0-1 defeat. However, the break was not a success, as they should end up in a 1: 1 defeat – despite a 21-2 chance and two goals that were not given away! There was a lack of goal-setting, as only five of the 21 shots also found their way to the opposing box.
With the defeat, the Europa League for the third of the past Bundesliga season has at least once moved far into the distance. Already the preparation was not successful for Sturm Graz. There was a positive 2-1 victory against CSKA Moscow, but only two games against Austrian amateur clubs could be won and in one case even only 3: 2. Apart from that, Mlada Boleslav from Czech Republic and Vasas Budapest defeated as well as against FC Copenhagen a draw.
