The Iron will face two sides while on tour in Austria in 2018. With both plying their trade in the same division, we looked at their head-to-head record in recent years.
United face SV Seekirchen on campus at BSFZ Obertraun before travelling to SV Wals-Grünau as their third and fourth warm-up games of pre-season, respectively.
Both teams retained their statuses in the Regionalliga West, which is the third tier of Austrian football, in 2017-18. SV Wals-Grünau finished the division in seventh, while SV Seekirchen ended the campaign in twelfth.
THE LAST MEETING...
Wednesday, May 9, 2018
SV Wals-Grünau 2-1 SV Seekirchen
Hosts Wals-Grünau emerged victorious with all three points in the last meeting, thanks to a brace from 30-year-old striker Matthias Pinchler.
He netted goals on 18 and 24 minutes respectively to seal the win and put the side 2-0 up at the time. Seekirchen's Lukas Rösslhuber halved the deficit less than a minute after Pinchler's second strike to make it 2-1. The visitor's bid to get back into the game was made harder just after the hour as Kosovon Eugen Rexhepi saw a straight red card.
The victory would complete the league double for the side, who won by the same margin earlier on in the campaign.
THE REVERSE FIXTURE...
Friday, October 6, 2017
SV Seekirchen 1-2 SV Wals-Grünau
SV Wals-Grünau emerged with all three points, once again thanks to their star striker Matthias Pinchler.
The Austrian striker popped up with a 69th minute goal which proved to be the winner, with the score poised at 1-1 at that point. The hosts had taken an 18th minute lead when Christof Kopleder found the net, with Christoper Mayr equalising six minutes before half time.
Seekirchen wouldn't keep all ten men on the pitch, with Jürgen Winfried Matscher picking up his second caution.
