The Austrian team wants to quit the job in Ukraine and reach the group stage of this competition for the second season in a row.

Prediction for this match

Rapid Wien have positioned themselves very strongly for the group stage of the Europa League, as they go into the second leg with a three-goal cushion.

A goal in the 29th minute of Taxiarchis fountas solved the impasse for the Austrian team before the second half of Ercan Kara and Marco Grull sealed an impressive win against Zorya Luhansk.

Given that Vienna failed to win four of the last six games, Dietmar Kuhbauer will be delighted with his team’s comfortable first leg win and hope they did enough to make it into the Europa League group stage draw on Friday.

Rapid Vienna followed on Thursday after their 3-0 win last weekend in the Austrian Bundesliga with another win against Ried with the same number of points.

Even if a 2-0 defeat would be enough to send Vienna into the group stage, Kuhbauer will make sure that his players maintain their performance and build a strong formation across all competitions.

Zorya Luhansk’s disappointing start to the 2021/22 season has continued, with the loss at Rapid Vienna last Thursday, the third loss from the first five games in all competitions.

However, they recovered and took all three points in the Ukrainian Premier League with an entertaining 4-3 away win in Mariupol on Sunday.

A bracket of Shahab Zahedi as well as gates of Yehor Nazaryna and Oleksnadr Hladkyy ensured that the Muzhyky won the second league win of the season and moved up to seventh place in the table.

Viktor SkrypnykThe men hope that last weekend’s result can be the catalyst for positive form, despite another difficult task on Thursday of climbing a giant mountain to reach the Europa League group stage.

Confirmation of their overall loss mid-week would result in their being demoted to the first Europa Conference League.

Probability: Zorya Luhansk 1: 2 Rapid Vienna (Rapid Vienna wins 5: 1 in the overall standings)

Zorya Luhansk has everything to do on Thursday and an offensive appearance in front of the home fans is required to compensate for a three-goal deficit.

The visitors are likely to be a threat again by the middle of the week, however, and we can see them secure a narrow win and advance to the Europa League group stage.
