Austria Vienna vs Astra Predictions

Austria Vienna managed to avoid three consecutive defeats on Saturday as they beat Reid 2-0 after high scoring defeats to Roma and Rhendorf Altach. This could prove to be a very important result for them in terms of confidence coming into a crucial Europa League clash.

The hosts currently sit in 2nd position in their Europa League group, just one point ahead of Astra in 3rd and only two ahead of Viktoria Plzen. A win could potentially seal qualification to the knockout stages, whereas a defeat could see them drop to the bottom of the table with just one game remaining.

The group stages have been pretty entertaining as far as Austria Vienna are concerned. They’ve seen a total of 17 goals in their four games so far, with only a goalless draw at home to Viktoria Plzen marring the entertainment. Other than that they have beaten Astra 3-2 away, drawn 3-3 with Roma away, and lost 4-2 to Roma at home.

Austria Vienna’s qualifiers weren’t devoid of goals either, and a lot of the praise can be heaped on Olarenwaju Kayode and Alexander Grunwald for their goalscoring heroics. They have netted ten goals each in all competitions this season, with five and four respectively in the Europa League. Both got on the scoresheet at the weekend as well, and going off the most valuable odds I think backing Grunwald to score anytime at 3/1 is the perfect choice for our anytime goalscorer predictions.

Astra have had a bit of an inconsistent season so far, and that shows in their league standing of 9th position. They fell to defeat last midweek to end a seven match unbeaten streak as well, and despite bouncing back with a weekend win, they have still only won four of their last 11 outings in all competitions.

The advantage lies with the hosts for this one in my opinion, and judging by their previous performances it could be a high scoring affair. Ten of Austria Vienna’s last 15 outings have seen at least three goals scored, as have three of Astra’s four Europa League group games this season. Backing Over 2/5 goals at 7/10 looks a good option to me, and I’m going for a 3-1 win for Austria Vienna at 12/1 for my correct score predictions as well.
