Wolfsberger come into this one on the back of 2 successive home defeats. They have also lost the last 2 h2hs played at home.

Sturm Graz remain undefeated by the hosts when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches. But they haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league schedules.

We feel an away win is likely as, they have a better away h2h stats. Furthermore, the hosts are in poor home form.
