Team News: TSV Hartberg
Due to a mostly available group of players, there is just the sole fitness worry for the TSV Hartberg gaffer Markus Schopp to be concerned about. Fabian Ehmann (Shoulder injury) won’t be in action.
We reckon that TSV Hartberg will likely play in a 4-2-3-1 system, starting Raphael Sallinger, Jürgen Heil, Paul Komposch, Ibane Bowat, Manuel Pfeifer, Mamadou Sangare, Dominik Prokop, Ousmane Diakité, Donis Avdijaj, Christoph Lang and Maximilian Entrup.
For this match, we think that TSV Hartberg certainly have the ability to break down this Red Bull Salzburg outfit, although that isn’t expected to be enough to prevent defeat.
We reckon that it will be a narrow 2-1 advantage for Red Bull Salzburg at the end of the match. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
