Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: BSFZ Arena, Maria Enzersdorf.
It is time for new edition of Austrian Bundesliga. The new campaign starts this weekend and one of the most interesting clashes is taking place at BSFZ Arena. Admira Wacker hosts one of the title contenders Rapid Wien and we should see a narrow contest. The odds are heavily on the side of visitors (1.50 to win the match), but Austrian league has always offered high number of upsets.
Rapid Wien were looking good in the first part of previous season, but later on failed to keep up and slipped to third place behind Salzburg and Sturm Graz. Preparation period was solid, so fans have every reason to feel optimistic. Victory in the season opener would surely be amazing for the team spirits.
Rapid won duels against German lower division team Ebreichsdorf, Russian Krylya Sovetov and Kufstein, while losing to HSV and Slavia Prague.
As for their opposition, Admira Wacker had poor pre season results. They lost three straight matches, plus already got eliminated from the national cup by lower tier Neusiedl.
