Team News: Dornbirn
Dornbirn manager Markus Mader will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of before this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: SV Horn
SV Horn manager Davor Mladina has to choose a team with limited availability. Sebastian Gessl (Achilles tendon rupture) and Fabian Vyhnalek (Syndesmotic ligament tear) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the opinion that SV Horn would be disappointed if they were not to put a goal past this Dornbirn side, although that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Dornbirn when the full-time whistle blows. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
