The stats don’t lie, and SV Horn have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 13 goals overall. In defence, SV Horn just haven’t been too solid at all.
Going into this one, SV Horn are without an away win for the past 10 matches in the league. What a terrible run of away results.

Team News: Grazer AK
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Grazer AK boss Gernot Plassnegger to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Benjamin Rosenberger (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: SV Horn
SV Horn boss Alexander Schriebl has not got a full squad to pick from. Fabian Vyhnalek (Syndesmotic ligament tear) and Amro Lasheen (Circulation Problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
Our feeling is that SV Horn have the firepower to put a goal past this Grazer AK side, but that is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We can see a very close game with a 2-1 win for Grazer AK by the conclusion of the game.
