All Austria Vienna v SV Ried match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Austria Vienna will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 4-1 Conference League loss in their previous game against Lech Poznań.
The only player to score from Austria Vienna was Matthias Braunöder (29'). Mikael Ishak (27'), Michał Skóraś (64') and Kristoffer Velde (76', 90') scored for Lech Poznań.
Three or more goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 meetings where Austria Vienna have taken part. Their opponents scored 9 of them in this period while Austria Vienna totted up 14. We will see if that trend will end up being sustained here.
Coming into this fixture, Austria Vienna are undefeated in their last 5 home league matches.

In that game, SV Ried managed 50% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 0 of them on target. On the other side, Red Bull Salzburg had 18 shots on goal with 9 on target. Benjamin Šeško (5'), Junior Chukwubuike Adamu (15') and Noah Okafor (71') scored for Red Bull Salzburg.
Looking at their form, and SV Ried have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in total. Defensively, SV Ried seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Their previous form shows that SV Ried:
- have not beaten Austria Vienna when they've played them away from home in the last 7 league matches. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are without an away win for the past 7 league games.

Team News: Austria Vienna
Armand Smrcka (Ligament Injury), Marko Raguz (Unknown Injury), Florian Wustinger (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Matan Baltaxa (Ankle Injury) and Ziad El Sheiwi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for Austria Vienna boss Manfred Schmid.
In all likelihood, Die Veilchen will probably kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system for this game, handing starts to Christian Fruechtl, Reinhold Ranftl, Lukas Muehl, Lucas Galvao, Marvin Martins, Muharem Huskovic, Matthias Braunoeder, Andreas Gruber, Manfred Fischer, Aleksandar Jukic and Dominik Fitz.
Team News: SV Ried
SV Ried boss Christian Heinle has some current player fitness concerns. Matthias Gragger (Adductor problems), Nikola Stosic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Michael Martin (Muscular problems) can’t be considered. Leo Mikic is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We are inclined to think that SV Ried seem likely to utilise a 5-3-2 system, settling for Samuel Radlinger, David Ungar, Markus Lackner, Tin Plavotic, Julian Turi, Luca Kronberger, Julian Wiessmeier, Marcel Ziegl, Philipp Pomer, Christoph Monschein and Seifeddin Chabbi.
We’re of the opinion that Austria Vienna will, in all likelihood, be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
In contrast, SV Ried might well find it a difficult task to score themselves but do we see them scoring here.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 3-1 winning margin for Austria Vienna at the end of this one.
