Wolfsberger vs Sturm Graz
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Lavanttal Arena (Wolfsberg).
Wolfsberger will be looking to finish an overwhelming Bundesliga campaign in style with a win on Sunday afternoon. They play host to Sturm Graz in the last round tie at Lavanttal Arena. A three-pointer here would secure them a third-place finish and a spot in the Europa League group stage. It would be quite a massive achievement for the team which ended the previous term second from bottom in the elite class of the Austria football.
Christian Ilzer’s men were a very tough nut to crack to all teams in the competition on the home patch throughout the campaign. They only lost two of eleven home outings in the regular season. They will also come into this off the back of two subsequent victories in their own backyard. The streak includes a 2-1 win over champions Salzburg and a 4-09 drubbing of St. Polten.
Wolfsberger vs Sturm Graz: Head-to-head
Wolfsberger have a negative head to head record in matches with Die Schwoazn, but they won three, drew one and lost one of past five H2H ties.
Their winning thread includes a 1-2 victory away at Merkur Arena when teams last locked horns a month ago in this Championship Round.
Both teams scored in three of past four head to head affairs.
Wolfsberger vs Sturm Graz: Prediction
Sturm were not pulling up too many trees lately. They lost three of past four league outings, a series which dropped them down to fifth in the league ladder. Roman Mahlich’s squad will thus most likely have to battle either Rapid Vienna or Mattersburg in the Europa League play-offs to secure the action for this summer and qualifications for the continental competition.
Sturm lacked meticulousness at the back in the past couple of weeks. They shipped three goals to LASK and Austria Vienna each and two more to Salzburg last weekend. Given Wolfsberger notched six goals in two consecutive home wins, we recognize the value in backing GAM FC to snatch the spoils here.
