Austria has been located since Monday in the fourth Lockdown since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic. Particularly disadvantaged there is a serial master Red Bull Salzburg.
On Tuesday Red Bull Salzburg hits the Champions League away on Lille. An enormous important duel about the rise in the K.O. Phase of the premier class — in the State Pierre-Mauroy is expected more than 50,000 frenetic trailers.
On this support, the bulls in the last group game can not build at home against Seville — if its all about everything — do not build. The stadium gates remain closed during the Lockdown.
For this circumstance you have no understanding in Salzburg. Its already a bit of a bit shameful that it had to come so far that Austria is back to a Lockdown as the first country in Europe, says Salzburg Manager Stephan Rider for APA.
Stefan Rater: Sporting competitive note
Tab further: On the other hand, of course, I see that there is no other way, due to a development that you have overslept again. It hurts emotionally, we would not have thought we have to experience games without fans.
On the one hand, the ghost games would be financially pain (Salzburg expects gross sales of two million euros, which is now rewound), On the other hand, it is also a sporty competitive disadvantage.
Riders criticism: We play in Lille on Tuesday, where a witch kettle expects us and in return we have at home — instead of 29,000 fans in the back — an eventful ghost game. This is in a phase in which it is in the club for us Extremely many goes, and we can achieve something as Austrian club, which has not given it for a long time.
