Betting prediction:

Rapid Vienna has a more organized team compared to the opponent of this day, and thus, it is expected that they have the best opportunities to reach the goals. On the other hand, Wolfsberger AC comes to this match with great physical wear resulting from the game in the Austrian Cup, apart from the fact that it does not have players capable of making a difference in the different moments of the match. Having said that and taking into account these factors, betting on the victory of the locals is a good option.
