Rapid Wien vs Sturm Graz
Austria – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 22 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadion.
The Blackies are easily the best team in the competition at the moment. They are unbeaten in their last five match-days in the league, and four of these were wins. In fact, only one other squad has even recorded three wins in the last five game weeks.
They also have the best defense in the whole Austrian top flight. In fact, they have conceded just five goals all through this campaign, while the next best record is ten goals by LASK, and the next is 15 by Salzburg.
Meanwhile, the Green-Whites are amongst the best in the Bundesliga as well. However, currently they are going through a dismal run, and have been dropping considerable number of points. They also have been struggling at home lately.
By the looks of things, expect Sturm Graz to deliver a winning performance this Friday.

Christian Ilzer’s men are on an eleven-game unbeaten run, and of these ten were wins. They had also won 14 of their past 16 overall fixtures, and were invincible in 23 of their past 24 match-ups.
On the road, they are on an 11-match unbeaten run, and had won eight of their past nine such games. Note that they had also scored heavily in all these fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in seven of their last ten overall official games, and had lost two of their former three such match-ups. Their latest win at home had also come back in November.
