Team News: SKN St. Pölten
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the SKN St. Pölten gaffer Robert Ibertsberger to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Luan (Knock) is sidelined.
Team News: SV Ried
SV Ried manager Gerald Baumgartner has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kennedy Boateng (Muscular problems), Seth Paintsil (Bruised Rib), Marco Grüll (Ill), Ante Bajic (Shoulder Injury) and Samuel Sahin-Radlinger (Corona virus) will miss out on this game. Constantin Reiner will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We feel that SKN St. Pölten will probably have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
However, SV Ried may well find it hard to find the back of the net but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be converting at least once here.
We’re predicting a 3-1 winning score for SKN St. Pölten come full-time.
