The week ahead

Big match against Rapid Vienna on Sunday

It's all building up nicely. After the results at the weekend - a 3-1 win for our Red Bulls and 8-1 victory for the Green and Whites, the big match next Sunday has taken on additional intrigue. Our plan to prepare for the crunch encounter is as follows:

  • Tuesday: We have the day off training today after a recovery session yesterday. Some of our players might spend the evening watching how our former players Sadio Mane, Naby Keita and Erling Haaland get on in the UEFA Champions League.

  • Wednesday: We have a Covid test in the morning before our team face two training sessions at 10:00 CET and 15:00 CET in Taxham.

  • Thursday: We have a training session on Thursday morning.

  • Friday: Our players will be back in action at 10:00 CET in Taxham. Jesse Marsch and Max Wöber will then attend a press conference that you can see from 13:00 on our App, website and Facebook page.

  • Saturday: After another Covid test from 11:00, our boys will complete their final training session. After that they will board the team bus, which will take them to Vienna the day before the away match.

  • Sunday: Now for the big one! Rapid Vienna are gunning to give us a real title fight after their 8-1 win in Wolfsberg. The top-of-the-table clash kicks off in Vienna at 17:00 CET.


All training sessions will be held behind closed doors. The match on Sunday can be seen on Sky in Austria with regular updates posted on our English club Twitter page.
