Rapid Wien vs Mattersburg Prediction

Rapid Wien were held to a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day by Hartberg. Despite the dropped two points, the fact that Wien had scored the equalizer in the 90+3rd minute, was extremely inspirational.

In the meantime, Matterberg were held to a goalless draw at home by Altach, the prior game week. In spite of being a bottom-tier team, the result kept safe their unbeaten status in official games since the first week of December. 

Not only have Matterberg been invincible in 2020, but on the road, the team is on a three-game winning run, and have scored twice or more in all three of these fixtures. They have also failed only once to score on the road, in their prior ten away fixtures. 

Coupling these facts to the stat that Wien have a total of two clean sheets at home this whole season – we arrive to the conclusion that the game is about to have goals from both teams. However, do note that Wien are placed in the upper tier of the table, had won the reverse fixture (that too on the road), and had recorded 11 of the prior 13 h2h wins.

They had also delivered 19 of the prior 22 h2h wins at this venue, and are on a three-game winning run at this stadium. Finally, taking into account the injury-time equalizer by Wien in their latest league fixture, along with these other findings, it’s inferred that Rapid Wien are about to put forth a dominating performance.
