Grazer AK won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 1-3 2. Liga loss in their previous game against Vorwärts Steyr.
Alem Pasic (31') and Mirsad Sulejmanovic (33', 48') scored for Vorwärts Steyr.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Grazer AK have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Grazer AK have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals along the way.
Previously, SV Lafnitz drew 1-1 in the 2. Liga match with FC Blau-Weiss Linz.
The only name on the scoresheet from SV Lafnitz was Martin Rodler (90'). Fabian Schubert (63') scored for FC Blau-Weiss Linz.
SV Lafnitz have been a threat going forward leading up to this encounter, scoring 10 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Philipp Semlic will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Lafnitz have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 5 of those same clashes. We will just have to find out if that trend can be continued on here.
Going into this contest, SV Lafnitz are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: Grazer AK
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Grazer AK gaffer Gernot Plassnegger to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Thomas Zündel (Unknown Injury) will miss out.
Team News: SV Lafnitz
Lafnitz manager Philipp Semlic has not got a full squad to pick from. Daniel Rosenbichler (Achilles tendon problems) and David Otter (Ankle Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We’re of the view that SV Lafnitz and Grazer AK should be able to score more than one goal each in what is shaping up to be a fairly even contest.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and there should be goals with a draw being quite a realistic outcome. That’s why we have predicted a very even contest with a 2-2 score at the end of the match.
