SK Rapid Wien
SK Rapid Wien will be looking for an improved result here after a 0-1 Bundesliga loss in their previous game against TSV Hartberg. Dario Tadić (42') was the scorer for TSV Hartberg.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the SK Rapid Wien rearguard. Die Grün-Weißen have given the opposition little, resulting in the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous 6 outings standing at 4.

SK Rapid Wien manager Dietmar Kühbauer will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully injury-free group ready to go.
Team News: Red Bull Salzburg
RB Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch has not got a full squad to pick from. Sekou Koita (groin strain), Rasmus Kristensen (Hamstring Injury), Antoine Bernede (Ankle Injury) and Philipp Köhn (Ankle Injury) are not able to play.
We feel that in this game, SK Rapid Wien have the capability to find the net against this Red Bull Salzburg team, however a single goal is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss. We’re therefore expecting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for Red Bull Salzburg when the referee blows the final whistle. Should be a good one.
