Team News: Austria Klagenfurt
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Austria Klagenfurt manager Robert Micheu to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Julian von Haacke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: Wacker Innsbruck
Wacker boss Daniel Bierofka has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Stefan Meusburger (Vertebra injury), Markus Wostry (Muscle fiber tear), Rami Tekir (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Lukas Wedl (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not ready for selection.
It looks to us that Austria Klagenfurt can and should be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the other end, Wacker Innsbruck are also probably going to find it difficult to make a breakthrough although we do think that they will probably end up pulling one back during this clash, too.
We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 3-1 winning margin for Austria Klagenfurt after 90 minutes.
