Our Prediction:

Red Bull Salzburg will win

Rapid Vienna – Red Bull Salzburg Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 14:45

Rapid Vienna have been handed a very tough opening game to the new Bundesliga season as they prepare to play host to the reigning champions RB Salzburg on Friday. Both teams had big wins in the cup so head into Fridays match with plenty of confidence, and last season Rapid Vienna beat Salzburg in the corresponding fixture, despite finishing way behind their rivals in the table.

Another interesting thing is, that they have only conceded 6 goals in their domestic league, or under one goal per game on average. They are crushing their opponents every game, not only in Austria. Their best player is Haland, a young star who has already 11 goals in the Austrian league, with a hat-trick in the Champions League opening. They have won against Genk with 6:2, in the first round of the new season of the Champions League. What else can we say about them?

LASK Linz vs Salzburg Betting Tips

The recent head to head record between these two sides, their form and performances heading into Fridays game, and their standings in the Bundesliga last season, all point towards a win for Salzburg and a good chance we will see both teams score and over 2.5 goals. RB Salzburg finished seven places and 28 points ahead of Rapid Vienna in the Bundesliga last season. Four of Rapid Viennas last five and two of RB Salzburgs last three matches have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals, which is why were backing the visitors to claim a 3-2 win on Friday. The visitors have won five of their last six matches against Rapid Vienna and both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in three of the last six meetings between the two clubs.

The two Vorstopper should bring stability in the game of the capital club. A significant contribution to the fact that Rapid still has chances on the upper half of the table, made goalkeeper Richard Strebinger. In 17 inserts in the Bundesliga Strebinger could hold zero six times. Rapid has scored 25 goals so far in the current season. Both in the Europa League and in the national competitions convinced the 26-year-old Austrian. This also succeeded in most league games. Both Goran Djuricin and Didi Khbauer held on to 4-2-3-1. If you exclude the defeat against Stadtrivalen Austria, it is a very solid season from the defensive perspective.

In addition they need a much better goal difference than now. The Salzburg are still undefeated in the Austrian Bundesliga. From the Vienneses point of view, the champion could not come at a worse time. For the coach of the record champion, the air could also be close, if after the disgrace against the Vienna Austria and Inter Milan, the next high defeat follows. How difficult the task for the Green-Whites actually is, clarify the odds in the game between Rapid Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg. Four of the last five games in Austrias top division have decided the red bulls for themselves. Before the winter break, Didi Khbauers side could only win one of their last five games. Six points are missing the Htteldorfern on the SK Sturm Graz and thus on the upper half of the table. This included the 1: 6 debacle against archrival Austria Wien. Accordingly, it can be assumed that the team will give everything on Sunday for Didi Khbauer. Accordingly, in the match between Rapid Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg, the tip on the bulls seems most likely, albeit not particularly lucrative.

Nevertheless, new coach Jesse Marsch, who followed Marco Rose, will certainly not have an easy task. Players such as Dominik Szoboszlai, Erling Bride Haland, Patson Daka, Antoine Bernede or Leihrckkehrer Majeed Ashimeru is the next step daring this season. However, the bulls have plenty of replacement in their own ranks. The expectation is huge and any loss of points will be criticized for sure. At first glance, Salzburg has certainly lost quality.

The Htteldorfer missed again the qualification and can accordingly concentrate again this year exclusively on the Bundesliga. However, it is also clear that there are no excuses this year and a sovereign qualification for the upper play-off requirement. Despite losing the Cup final and not winning Europa League Play-Off, the mood is quite positive. Despite the partially unacceptable performance in recent years, there is currently a mood of optimism among the Green-Whites. Another year without Europe is a bitter reality for the SK Rapid Wien. Didi Khbauer has managed that a little peace has returned to the club.

So far, the season has not been going according to plan from the Green-Whites point of view. Five wins, five draws and eight defeats are the record of SK Rapid Vienna in the current season. In order to reach the minimum goal of the upper half of the table, the Htteldorfer must catch up six points on Sturm Graz in the next four games. Before the winter break, they lost 1-6 in the Wiener Derby, thus reaching a low point in the 120-year club history. The 5: 2 win over the TSV Hartberg in the FB Cup gives the Viennese at least hope. Rapid Vienna is currently in a very difficult phase. Therefore, a victory against the over-team from Salzburg is actually mandatory. Although surprisingly the knockout phase of the Europa League was reached, the friends were only short. After a 0-1 defeat at home to Inter Milan followed on Thursday evening a bitter 4-0 in Italy. Also in the Austrian Bundesliga things are not going better for the Viennese.

Even before the kick-off, the game seems to be decided. In the game between Rapid Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg, the odds speak clearly for the guests. Rapid definitely needs a win to slip into the top half of the table. The recent past between Rapid Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg reinforces forecasts, which assume a clear victory for the guests. Both in the Europa League and in the Austrian Bundesliga they conceded bitter defeats. The situation is quite different with the red bulls from the city of Mozart. The Salzburg are unbeaten in the Bundesliga and could turn at European level a 1: 2 in a 6: 2 total score. However, the last results speak clearly against the team of Didi Khbauer.

This option brings the optimal amount of risk and I suggest that you back it. It is worth noting that in those affairs the clubs averaged over 2.5 goals scored. Therefore, combining the away teams win with the number of goals is a perfect option for those seeking higher-rewarding wagers. The recent affairs between Rapid Vienna and Salzburg, universally known as the Red Bulls, have been somewhat one-sided. Moreover, Salzburg have won 4 of the last 5 clashes between them, with the fifth going to the Green-Whites.
