Sturm Graz vs Austria Wien Prediction

Sturm Graz won 0-2 on the road the last match-day, against Admira. While the win did give them three points, it might not be something to be overjoyed. The result had come against the second-last placed team in the table.

Elsewhere, Vienna recorded a 2-2 draw at home against Salzburg. The inspiring performance had come against one of the best teams in the league, and Austria’s equalizer had come in the 89th minute.

In regards to result this Sunday, consider that Sturm Graz have already qualified for the Championship Group, and are out-of-form, while their counterparts need to win the remaining two fixtures. Austria had also showed their desire to get into the Championship mix with confidence-boosting results the past several game weeks.

Moreover, Austria had won the reverse fixture, had recorded ten of the last fifteen h2h wins, and had won the latest meeting at this venue, 1-3.

Importantly, Sturm Graz were winless in seven of their prior ten overall fixtures, while Wien are unbeaten in their previous 15 overall match-ups, and in the past five on the road. Considering all these stats, it’s deduced that the desperate Austria Wien will put forth a majestic performance this weekend.
