Team News: Wolfsberger AC
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Wolfsberger AC gaffer Ferdinand Feldhofer to be concerned with due to a largely intact group. Eliel Peretz (Metatarsal Fracture) is sidelined.
Team News: Sturm Graz
Sturm Graz manager Christian Ilzer has to choose a team with limited availability. Vincent Trummer (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Niklas Geyrhofer (Torn Ankle Ligament) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
In our view, Sturm Graz and Wolfsberger AC could both end up scoring at least one each in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating the two teams.
While there should be goals at both ends, it’s too close to call. That is why we are leaning toward a great battle with a 2-2 score at the end of the 90.
