SV Lafnitz manager Philipp Semlic will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this match owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Austria Klagenfurt
Klagenfurt boss Robert Micheu has to currently contend with reduced team options. Philipp Hütter (Torn Muscle Fibre), Florian Freissegger (Fractured Thumb), Julian von Haacke (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Benjamin Hadzic (Corona virus) miss out here.
We’re of the opinion that SV Lafnitz are certainly able to put a goal past this Austria Klagenfurt outfit, although one goal isn’t likely to be enough.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 1-2 winning score for Austria Klagenfurt when the referee blows the final whistle. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
