Rapid Wien vs WSG Swarovski Tirol Prediction

Rapid Wien made light work of Admira in their last clash in the top flight by slotting no less than three unanswered goals. The hosts were much the better side in that latter matchup. Admirably, they even restricted their foes to just one measly shot on target.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently unbeaten in their past five games in the top flight, and have dropped points on just two occasions in the process.

With thirty points to their name, Rapid Wien are, at the moment, third on the ladder, ten points adrift of second-placed LASK, and just one ahead of Wolfsberger AC, who are fourth.

On the other hand, WSG Swarovski Tirol have been branded as the worst side in the cluster and for good reason. The visitors have been recording back to back defeats in their last six fixtures on the trot, the most recent of which was a 3-1 loss at the hands of Mattersburg.

Piling on even more misery, the guests have dropped points in seven of their previous nine outings in the top flight. In sharp contrast, Rapid Wien are unbeaten in their last two games here.

Taking into account that WSG Swarovski Tirol failed to get the better of this foe in the reverse fixture as well, count on Rapid Wien to breeze past the visitors this weekend.

Furthermore, the guests have hardly shown any resistance in their defensive third, especially on the road. In fact, they were at the losing end of a 5-1 scorecard in their past two outings.

To make matters worse, WSG Swarovski Tirol have conceded twenty-three goals away from home so far. Which, is just one fewer, than the highest tally.

As such, expect Rapid Wien to win and to rack up the goals tally with ease as well.
