Austria Vienna vs Salzburg Prediction & Betting tips
The conclusion of the first international week from a red-white-red perspective is extremely divided. The goal to regain eleventh place in the UEFA five-year ranking moved far away on Thursday. The LASK got a 1-1 draw at Alkmaar, but champion Red Bull Salzburg slipped into a debacle against ex-coach Adi Hütter.
For the marching team it was the second setback in this still young calendar year 2020. After two defeats, the champion has to get back on the road to success. On Sunday afternoon there will be a top duel between Austria Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga.
The game in the Generali Arena promises a great deal of explosiveness and excitement. Because the situation is not only tense with the guests from the city of Mozart, but also with the hosts from the Austrian capital. The Ilzer protégés hold on to the last straw and try to optimize the fight for the upper play-off.
In order for this opportunity to be saved, the master must be defeated. However, the betting base odds comparison makes this seem extremely unlikely.
The initial situation was anything but easy. Seven points behind four missed games is a huge burden. Nevertheless, you could hear in the Violets’ camp time and again that head coach Christian Ilzer and his team still believe in moving into the top six.
Nothing has changed since the violets had to make do with a 2-2 draw at Cashpoint SCR Altach last weekend. A point gain that can be too little in the final settlement.
However, more than this point gain would not have been earned. The violets presented themselves in hibernation in the first 30 minutes and were lucky that the Altach offensive did not decide the game early. A dream free kick made the connection and finally the equalizer to 2: 2.
After Sturm Graz and TSV Hartberg lost their games, the gap was reduced by one point. However, six points behind with only three games remaining and a duel against Red Bull Salzburg realistically reduce the chances to a minimum.
A draw on Sunday could not be enough. After the competition is in use, the pressure may increase. Losing is forbidden – and the best bookmakers between Austria Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg offer 1X more than double the bet on the double chance.
However, the current deformity of the Austrian master could represent a small glimmer of hope. After all, Wiener Austria lost a league game in the Austrian Bundesliga for the last time on November 3. There have been six games without a defeat since then, but four of those six games ended in a draw and ensure that the team stands on the spot.
A gala performance will be required for the top game on Sunday against the Austrian champions, so that the hoped-for victory will succeed. Except for Christian Schoissengeyr, Christian Ilzer is available to all players. Michael Madl should be fit again after his circulatory problems last weekend.
Red Bull Salzburg:
Was the bloodletting too great during this transfer period? This question arises after the first three competitive games in the 2020 calendar year at Red Bull Salzburg. It was utopian to believe that the march elf could easily compensate for the departure of Erling Braut Haaland, Takumi Minamino or Marin Pongracic. However, such a drop in performance was also not to be expected.
In the cup against second division SKU Amstetten, the favorites won with the handbrake on before the double crash against LASK and Eintracht Frankfurt was able to cope.
At the Bundesliga start Salzburg lost for the first time after 53 Bundesliga home games and thus also lost the league lead. The violent 1: 4 clap in the Europa League was an even bigger disappointment in the cops’ camp.
The second competitive game defeat in a row has been an exception for the bulls in recent years. Most recently, the bulls had to surrender twice in April 2018. After the bankruptcy in the Commerzbank-Arena, sports director Christoph Freund found clear words and was currently discussing the quality of the team in order to advance in this competition.
Hee-Chan Hwang’s late away goal did not change that. Nobody can believe in a 3-0 home win next Thursday, but the defensive is far too prone to errors and offensively lacks creativity and punch.
The balance in the team doesn’t seem to be right these days. Already after the defeat against LASK goalkeeper Stankovic criticized the transfer policy. Only with victories will there be peace again. Although the bulls are still by far the highest quality in Austria, we see no value between Austria Vienna and Red Bull Salzburg when forecasting the guests.
