Looking at their form, and FC Liefering have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 9 goals in all. In defence, FC Liefering have not been doing too well. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, of course.

Team News: SV Lafnitz
There is just the sole fitness concern for the SV Lafnitz boss Robert Weinstabl to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Gabriel Suprun (Cruciate ligament tear) is out of contention.
Team News: FC Liefering
FC Liefering manager Onur Çinel has to currently contend with reduced team options. Tolgahan Sahin (Cruciate ligament tear) and Valentin Oelz (Meniscus tear) can’t be considered. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Nicolò Turco and Zeteny Jano.
We envisage that SV Lafnitz are likely to have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, FC Liefering may well find it hard to score but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for SV Lafnitz come full-time.
