Team News: Vorwärts Steyr
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Vorwärts Steyr gaffer Wilhelm Wahlmüller to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Nicolas Wimmer (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t play.
Team News: SV Ried
SV Ried manager Gerald Baumgartner has to choose a team with limited availability. Ante Bajic (Shoulder Injury), Thomas Reifeltshammer (Kidney problems), Nemanja Zikic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Johannes Kreidl (Knock) and Kennedy Boateng (Knock) are not ready for selection. Julian Wießmeier will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We believe that SV Ried can create a decent amount of chances and shots on target.
At the other end, Vorwärts Steyr might well find it difficult to find success in front of goal but we can see them managing to get on the scoresheet.
We’re predicting a comfortable 1-3 winning score for SV Ried when the referee blows the final whistle.
