Team News: TSV Hartberg
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the TSV Hartberg boss Markus Schopp to contend with from a near full-strength set of players. Fabian Ehmann (Shoulder Injury) is out of contention.
It seems likely that TSV Hartberg will possibly line up in a 4-1-4-1 system for this one with Raphael Sallinger, Jürgen Heil, Michael Steinwender, Ibane Bowat, Manuel Pfeifer, Ousmane Diakité, Dominik Frieser, Christoph Lang, Tobias Kainz, Dominik Prokop and Maximilian Entrup.
Team News: Austria Vienna
Austria Vienna manager Michael Wimmer has multiple availability issues to deal with. Florian Wustinger (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Marko Raguz (Pubitis), Marvin Potzmann (Hamstring Injury), Ziad El Sheiwi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Muharem Huskovic (Knee Problems), James Holland (Fractured Toe) and Tin Plavotic (Torn lateral collateral ligament) will not be playing here.
It’s our belief that Die Veilchen seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 system, starting Christian Früchtl, Matthias Braunöder, Hakim Guenouche, Andreas Gruber, Lucas Galvão, Dominik Fitz, Manfred Fischer, Reinhold Ranftl, Fisnik Asllani, Marvin Martins and Matan Baltaxa.
Austria Vienna and TSV Hartberg should both be able to find the back of the net at least once here although it’s difficult at this stage to select a clear winner.
It will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw and also of goals in the match. We therefore think that it’s going to be a highly competitive game with a 2-2 draw when all is said and done.
