What looks relatively harmless on the game data sheet with a 4: 2, could have resulted in a more bitter evening for Rapid with a better chance of Salzburg or without a strong Richard Strebinger in the goal of the Green-Whites.
Above all, the offensive of the Mozartstadters around triple packer Patson Daka and the four-time preparer Mergim Berisha could once again stand out. After the disappointment during the week in the Europa League against Villarreal, coach Jesse Marsch can also look forward to reparations.
Joker shone from the start
Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch is delighted with the strong performance of his team in an interview with “Sky” after the game. “It was a dominant performance from start to finish, I’m very happy with the guys,” said the American. “We clearly understood how important it was to score in this game.”
The 47-year-old does not want to commit himself to a “Man of the Match”: “Both (note: Daka and Berisha) were really strong.” Instead, he particularly emphasizes another high performer. “Brenden Aaronson actually comes from the bench and has to react so shortly before the game. To show such a performance, that was outstanding”, praised the coach of the young American signing, who was in the starting line-up for Okafor, as he spent a quarter of an hour injured while warming up on the abductors before kick-off.
Strong reaction after EL disappointment
The reaction of his team to the Europa League defeat against Villarreal last Thursday seems to have impressed the American: “Of course we were disappointed after the game against Villarreal. The y are a good team, but we thought that there was more in it. “
“ The day after the game (note: EL game against Villarreal) the focus was on the game against Rapid. The fact that this young squad reacts so well after a disappointment, I think that says a lot about the team,” said Marsch .
Feeling more important than table
“ The table is not that important, the feeling that you can play so well against one of the best opponents is much more important to me. Now we have to continue to play with such intensity and aggressiveness”, the RB coach sums up.
Gate for the blocked colleague
Triple packer Patson Daka clearly sees the key to today’s success in the “good team performance”. “Without the team I wouldn’t have scored three goals today,” said the 22-year-old.
Sekou Koita, who was absent from Mozartstadt for months due to a doping ban, spoke to Daka again before the top game. “Patson, you have to score for me today”, Daka quotes his teammate.
This is how the man from Zambia also dedicated his first goal celebration to his striker colleague. “Everyone is waiting for the boys to come back (note: Camara and Koita).”
