Kufstein vs Rapid Vienna Prediction & Betting tips
Rapid Wien lags clearly behind its own expectations for several years. No matter with which players or coaches, the club simply can not match the glorious times. In the preseason occupied the capital club after all, the third place in the final table and also held the local rivals Austria behind. In the great dominance of RB Salzburg, the only realistic title chance was the Cup victory. But in the semifinals, Rapid narrowly and unfortunately failed to storm Graz, the eventual winner. 2018/19, the Viennese take a new start in the ÖFB Cup.
The first round match on Friday is also the official start of the new season. The opponent should be beaten with the regional league FC Kufstein. However, Vienna must not only be warned because of the old adage, “The cup has its own laws”. Also in the preseason the Bundesliga club had a lot of trouble in the first round and defeated the SC Schwaz only with 2: 0. We think that the favorite in this game makes it to the next round without glittering. Bets on another scoreless game seem sensible. At the meeting Kufstein Vs. Rapid Vienna are also the betting odds for the standard tip “under 2.5 goals” so high that a mission alone is worthwhile. The game will be kicked off on Friday evening at 19:20.
FC Kufstein is a mediocre club from the Regionalliga West. There, the club has completed the last season in tenth place. Also in the cup the FCK is a regular representative. In the last season there was an early end after a 1: 5 against USK Anif. The opponent is even more prominent this time and the motivation and anticipation of the host’s players is great. Ganz Kufstein is looking forward to the duel with big club from the capital.
The outsider believes in his chance and does not want to hide. This makes little sense, because the strengths of Kufstein are on the offensive. With 56 goals in 30 games, the club was sometimes the most dangerous goal. On the other hand, of course, weakened the defensive a bit, which must be better against the big favorites from the Bundesliga.
The hope among the fans is great, that after a good second half Rapid Wien also starts well again in the new season. The test matches were so far neat, but not scary for the competition. In the last match with HSV, the capital club had to accept a narrow 1: 2 defeat after two wins and one more defeat against Slavia Prague. Before the start of the league on 29.7 against Admira Wackermödling there is still a lot to improve. A first real positioning is now the competitive debut game against Kufstein. There you will also see which players were able to convince the coach Goran Djuricin in the preparation and are allowed to start from the beginning.
