A tough defeat, 6-2 at home. FC Andau are not particularly talented but willing to do anything to win, as the photos will show. Tripping, holding, body checking, etc. Last time we played FC Andau in Andau, star Michal Slezak left with a concussion so this defeat is quite bitter. The issue appears to be on defense where SC Kittsee with Patrick Dietmann out were unable to stop Andau’s Patrik Sabo.

An out of position Marek Sabo signals for an offside but a Sombat goal would have counted, as he splits the Andau defenders perfectly.
Jozef Sombat almost scores with a well-placed ball, but Andaui keeper Juraj Hajduch just manages to keep Sombat’s shot out of the net. Even with a goal it would be a steep hill back into this game at this point.
