St. Polten vs Salzburg Prediction & Betting tips
Unexpected top match on the seventh matchday of the Austrian Bundesliga! The only two unbeaten teams will meet on Saturday for the summit meeting. That Red Bull Salzburg is one of those teams would have been expected. But that St. Pölten will also be without defeat after six matchdays, probably had only a few on the slip. The Red Bulls still have a bright white vest at the national level and have not made a point yet. Is the first stumbling block in the Sankt Pölten NV Arena? In the match between St. Pölten and Red Bull Salzburg at least according to the betting odds only the tip on the guests can be the right one.
For the season 2016/2017 St. Pölten had risen to the Beletage of Austrian football. In his first season, the club was able to save as the penultimate just over the finish line and escaped the descent. St. Pölten had to shiver until the last matchday. In his second, the last season in the Bundesliga St. Pölten then had the good fortune that the Austrian federation decided to increase the top division from this season from ten to twelve teams. St. Pölten was knocked off last season with 13 points behind in the preseason. However, St. Pölten ended up in the relegation and defeated SC Wiener Neustadt from the First League 2-0 away and 1-1 at home.
And this season? Since St. Pölten has been playing very big. After six match days completed four wins and two draws with a goal difference of 10: 4 in the account of St. Pölten. That makes fourteen points in the summer after just six matchdays. In the last season in the Bundesliga St. Pölten has scored just 36 points in 36 games! Four times in this Bundesliga season St. Pölten already played to zero. If you add the total of six preparatory games to the new season that St. Pölten has won, then the club has not lost any of the last 18 matches in a season- and competition-spanning competition! There were fifteen wins and three draws. In the duel of St. Pölten with Red Bull Salzburg, however, the betting odds are clearly in the direction of a tip on away win. At least the betting providers St. Pölten do not dare to make a surprise.
Red Bull Salzburg:
Only one team can beat the previous record of St. Pölten and that is – of course – Red Bull Salzburg. The Austrian subscription champion has won his first six games in the Bundesliga. Red Bull Salzburg have conceded four goals in the first six games of the season, just like their nearest opponent St. Pölten, but have scored five times more often with fifteen specially scored matches. And yet, none of this will be enough to make up for the fact that the Red Bulls missed the Champions League for the eleventh time in succession at the end of August. Once again Red Bull Salzburg had all the trumps in hand, led in the playoff second leg at home against Red Star Belgrade 2-0 after the first leg in Serbia ended scoreless and stood after the final whistle at 2: 2 again with drooping heads and empty hands there.
If you also take the five preparation games at Red Bull Salzburg that the Red Bulls as well as St. Pölten were able to win, then the Austrian champions have been undefeated for 17 games. In addition to fifteen wins, there were the two draws in the playoff against Red Star Belgrade. Against St. Pölten Red Bull Salzburg has won since the rise of the opponent in the Bundesliga all eight direct duels. The goal difference from these eight direct matches is 25: 4 in favor of the Bulls. Four times Red Bull Salzburg won against St. Pölten to zero, four more times there was exactly one goal. In the upcoming game of Red Bull Salzburg near St. Pölten, there is much to be said for a new tip on the favorite, but the odds are then rather mau.
