With five rounds to go, Rapid has long since laid to rest its hopes of winning its 33rd championship title. However, the second final place is becoming more and more concrete. With a win in Tyrol, they can take another decisive step towards the runners-up title.
In view of their battered opponents, the Green-Whites could be in for another shooting match, as only a few days ago Silberberger’s team was sent off with a 4:0 win at the Allianz Stadium.
True to the motto “there’s life in the old dog yet”, the Tyroleans have already caused a few surprises this season. Therefore, one should not underestimate the last team in the championship group.
Nevertheless, we consider the betting odds offered for WSG Tirol vs. Rapid Wien to be justified. They see the guests as having a clear advantage. A bet on an away win may yield solid profits.
Prediction & Live Odds for WSG Tirol vs. Rapid Wien
Although you have to give the home side credit for always being good for surprises in the current season, the air seemed to be out a little in recent weeks. Numerous goals conceded have characterised the Tyrolean side’s recent league games, so we consider the bookmakers’ odds on WSG vs Rapid to be justified.
For a bet on an away win our bookmakers offers odds of up to 1.73 ✅, which is a good option considering the mostly stable performances of the Viennese. All in all, Rapid, in contrast to the hosts, have almost always kept things tight at the back in recent weeks.
WSG Tirol – Statistics & current form
The fact that the team that was almost relegated in the previous season made it to the top of the play-offs this time can be considered a sensation. Although things are no longer running as smoothly as they did in the autumn, nobody in Wattens is moping about it.
The West Austrians are out for revenge against Hütteldorf after their recent defeat. If you believe the bookmakers’ odds for WSG Tirol against Rapid Wien, the chances of a home win are slim.
There are always goals
WSG matches are rarely boring, as no match in the current league season has ended in a 0-0 draw. In fact, two or more goals were scored in 23 of the total of 27 league matches, which is partly due to the concentrated offensive power of Frederiksen and Co. but also results from the defensive vulnerability.
In total, almost two goals are scored on average per home game. In the last two appearances in front of a home crowd, the top clubs LASK and Salzburg were defeated.
A surprise in the championship group
As unpleasant as Silberberger’s eleven often presented themselves, they don’t seem to be sitting firmly in the saddle at the moment. The results of the last weeks were more than mixed.
They conceded eleven goals in the last four league matches and with Behounek, Oswald, Anselm, Dedic, Gölles and Jauregui, numerous key players are out.
Also due to the rather inglorious performance last weekend, we see a bet on the home team in WSG Tirol against Rapid Wien very critical. If you still like the underdog, you will find the best odds at the tested bookmaker Betway.
Predicted line-up of WSG Tirol:
Ozegovic – Koch, Soares, Gugganig, Schnegg – Rogelj, Celic, Petsos, Rieder – Frederiksen, Pranter
Rapid Wien – Statistics & current form
The victory last weekend was a real liberation, because the Hütteldorf team had not won three times before. In the fight for second place in the table, it is now urgent to collect important points.
Can we expect another goal festival on Wednesday? Kara and Co. will certainly start the match heavily motivated, especially as this is the beginning of his farewell tour for captain Ljubicic, who recently signed with Cologne.
Attack also red-hot away from home
With 56 goals, coach Kühbauer has the second best attacking line-up in the league at his disposal. Away from home, the attacking express has already failed to score twice, but a total of 28 goals in 13 matches away from home is still more than a remarkable number.
At the Tivoli Stadium, they now want to achieve away win number seven. Against the WAC, the Green-Whites have already proven that they can play hard away from home. Since Wattens has always scored at least one goal as a guest so far, we predict at least one away goal for WSG Tirol vs.
Defence as a guarantee for success
Despite all the offensive qualities, the key to success in recent weeks and months has been the defence. Only once in the last nine games did they concede more than one goal, and five times in total they kept a clean sheet. Moreover, apart from a few long-term injuries, Kühbauer can rely on his regular team on Wednesday.
Due to only two defeats in the last 16 league games, betting on WSG Tirol vs. Rapid Wien is promising. If you believe in a goal spectacle, you will find excellent odds for goal bets at 888sport, which can be further improved with the 888sport bonus for new customers.
