Dundalk vs Rapid Wien
Date: Thursday, 26 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).
Playing at a neutral venue will keep Dundalk away from getting anything out of their ground advantage in the game.
Moreover, their losing streak in the Europa League will weigh them down in the clash on Thursday. Besides, it reflected their poor form in the previous three rounds in the tournament.
Rapid Wien had their doubts about making it into the playoffs this term. They have picked up only three points from their three clashes and are trailing behind the second spot by three points.
This could be a crucial game for the visitors, and the 4-3 win in the EL reverse fixture backs them for a win against the home team.
Dundalk vs Rapid Wien Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has not played against a club from the opponents’ country.
- The visitor has won both their clashes with another Irish club.
- Wien did not concede any goal in both their fixtures with other Irish sides.
- Their previous encounter gave a 4-3 home win for Rapid Wien.
Dundalk vs Rapid Wien Prediction
Dundalk will return home to face the visitors in EL after a 1-4 win on the road against the likes of Bohemians in the Irish FAI Cup last time out in the schedule. But the victory came after six consecutive winless games across all major competitions.
Since playing at a neutral venue doesn’t offer a ground advantage, the host will have to rely on their h2h experience against the guest. Having successfully slotted in three goals against Wien in the reverse fixture, we can expect them to repeat the gesture yet again.
The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair, and both teams are likely to be involved in it. That’s why the tip for over 2.5 goals and BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Besides, the away win in full-time will also be a suitable option to yield decent returns in the fixture.
