WSG Swarovski Tirol
WSG Swarovski Tirol will be wanting a better result here following a 0-1 ÖFB Cup defeat in their last game at the hands of Floridsdorfer AC.
It’s been seldom in recent times that WSG Swarovski Tirol have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that WSG Tirol have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 8 goals on the way. Such a pattern might not be sustained into this game, of course.
Coming into this meeting, WSG Swarovski Tirol are without a home win in the past 8 league matches. Something needs to change.

However, TSV Hartberg could well find it tough to get shooting opportunities but do we see them seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
We’re tipping a comfortable 3-1 margin for WSG Swarovski Tirol when all’s said and done.
