Austria Wien vs Salzburg
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Generali Arena (Vienna)
This is the second league game for both these sides after the winter break. The hosts have won 5 of their 6 previous home games. The only loss came against the bottom side Tirol back in October.
Austria Vienna has never failed to score in 8 of their previous home fixtures even if they lost some of them.
Salzburg displayed great form in the league and they carried it to Champions League as well. They scored 3 past the reigning champs Liverpool who has the best defense in Europe. They have already qualified for Championship playoff and look good to retain their league title.

Austria Wien vs Salzburg Prediction
Even after scoring 2 against table-toppers LASK, Salzburg lost their recent game 2-3 away from home. They had to satisfy with away draws against both Hartberg and Admira, who are way below the table. The hosts are currently on a 3 match drawing streak which makes 4 draws in 5 matches. So I think there is a significant chance that both teams will share the points on Sunday.
Scoring goals have been child’s play for Salzburg. Even though they no longer have the services of Haaland and Minamino, they have great attacking talent in their squad. Salzburg is the top scorers in the league with 68 goals. The hosts have been scoring in 8 matches straight. So we can back the chance of an open game with both sides finding the back of the net.
