Team News: FK Austria Wien
FK Austria Wien manager Peter Stöger doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash thanks to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Red Bull Salzburg
RB Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch has to currently contend with reduced team options. Youba Diarra (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Antoine Bernede (Tibia Fracture) and Ousmane Diakité (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) can’t be considered.
When taking all factors into account, Red Bull Salzburg can have the majority of the possession and should turn some of their chances into goals.
Conversely, FK Austria Wien might well find it difficult scoring, although we do see them hitting back at some stage here, too.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 1-3 winning margin for Red Bull Salzburg when all’s said and done.
