Rapid Wien comes motivated for this match after a draw, 1-1l, against RB Salzburg, continuing this way without losing in this Bundesliga: the only goal of the team was signed by Christoph Knasmüllner. Even away from home, coach Dietmar Kühbauer is expected to focus on maintaining possession of the ball and paused attacks. In addition, it will be visible that Rapid Wien uses the flanks to create danger to its "enemy": Thorsten Schick is a very fast and expert player in transporting the ball. Ercan Kara is the best scorer of this team with 4 goals. Out for this match are Taxiarchis Fountas, Dalibor Velimirovic, Christopher Dibon and Philipp Schobesberger, all injured.
Rapid Wien has all the conditions to secure a win, as they have a squad with more quality. It is important to note that the home team goes through a complicated phase of the season and in addition does not have enough weapons to fight this opponent. It should be noted that Rapid Wien should enter the field at full strength, and are expected to dominate and score several goals. Having said that and taking into account these factors, betting in favor of the visitors in this game is the best option.
