“We need a dream day,” says Bernhard Humer from SPG Felbermayr Wels on the starting position before the men’s title duel in the table tennis Bundesliga on Sunday (6 p.m., live ORF Sport +).
Final opponent Wiener Neustadt has a home advantage, but a fan bus accompanies the Welser to the decision. It is the sixth meeting this season. The cup semifinals and the two duels in the Europe Cup quarterfinals went 3-2 to Wiener Neustadt. In the league there was a 4:2 of the Welser and a 3:3.
The people of Messestadt also have hope that the form curve of the players has recently pointed upwards. Andrew Levenko and Nandor Ecseki, handicapped for a long time after tonsil surgery, played well against Stockerau in the semifinals. The young Czech Jiri Martinko has only given up one game in 2022 anyway. At Wiener Neustadt, ex-Welser Frane Kojic is suffering from a torn tendon in his triceps.
