St Polten vs Wolfsberger
Date: Sunday, 29 July 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: NV Arena, St Polten.
Sunday’s clash between St Polten and Wolfsberger is not going to be the most exciting Bundesliga clash this weekend, but the number of decent betting opportunities is wide. Both teams have played some decent football in the pre-season, but overall, these teams won’t play a role when it comes to top four placement.
As the matter of fact, St Polten barely avoided relegation in the previous term. They ended the regular part of the championship in the last place and were forced into play out matches. Matches against Wiener Neustadt ended 3-1 on aggregate, so they kept the Bundesliga membership card. Bookmakers are expecting a narrow contest as well. Home side to win is priced at 2.62 while chances for Wolfsberger to do the same are slightly lower at 2.80.
St Polten played four games in the pre-season and won all of them (vs Traiskirchen, Floridsdorfer, Slovacko and Krems). The first official match of the season was in national cup against Maria Saal and there were no troubles – St Polten won 6-0.
St Polten vs Wolfsberger AC: Head-to-head
The last three encounters between these two teams ended with low number of goals (total of two). Interestingly visitors celebrated victories in the last two meetings.
St Polten played against Wolfsberger eight times in history but won only one duel, while losing four.
St Polten vs Wolfsberger AC: Prediction
St Polten’s results in the pre-season were impeccable, but keep in mind they faced only lower tier teams. Wolfsberger are a little bit more serious team, which is why I will go with away win (small stake advised).
Under 2.5 goals at 1.70 is going to be the secondary choice.
