Out of a mainly full-strength group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the FC Blau-Weiss Linz gaffer Ronald Brunmayr to be concerned with. Philipp Malicsek (Knee Problems) won’t be in action.
We believe that Dornbirn will have their work cut out to breach the defence of this FC Blau-Weiss Linz outfit who we think will likely be able to grind out a win.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a hard-fought 0-1 win for FC Blau-Weiss Linz at the end of the match.
