FC Blau-Weiss Linz
FC Blau-Weiss Linz will play in this game following on from a 1-1 2. Liga draw vs SV Lafnitz.
The only name on the scoresheet from FC Blau-Weiss Linz was Fabian Schubert (63'). Martin Rodler (90') was the scorer for SV Lafnitz.
It has not been often in recent games where FC Blau-Weiss Linz have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that BW Linz have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 9 goals on the way.
Going into this one, FC Blau-Weiss Linz are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.
In their previous game, Dornbirn drew 1-1 in the 2. Liga tie with Austria Wien Amateure.
The only player to score from Dornbirn was Lukas Fridrikas (32').
Dornbirn have been a threat going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 10 times in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Markus Mader will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Dornbirn have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same matches. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Going into this contest, Dornbirn are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.

Team News: FC Blau-Weiss Linz
Martin Grasegger (Infection) and Gerhard Dombaxi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for BW Linz gaffer Ronald Brunmayr.
Team News: Dornbirn
Dornbirn boss Markus Mader has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Lukas Fridrikas (Syndesmotic ligament tear), Aaron Kircher (Fracture) and Egzon Shabani (Strain) won’t be making appearances.
In our opinion, Dornbirn have it within them to find the back of the net against this FC Blau-Weiss Linz outfit, although it is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for FC Blau-Weiss Linz after the 90. Definitely a tough call.
