  • Both teams opened the new domestic season with big cup victories.

Early statement from defending champions Salzburg

The new season begins in the Austrian Bundesliga this weekend and a huge clash between Sturm Graz and RB Salzburg has been selected as the curtain raiser on Friday night.

Salzburg romped to an eighth title in a row last season as they finished 15 points clear of closest rivals Rapid Vienna and Sturm Graz, who finished level on 36 points in second and third respectively.

Sturm Graz had an impressive home record last season with 11 wins in 16 Bundesliga games, with one draw and four defeats.

One of those losses did come at the hands of Die Rotten Bullen, who won both league games 3-1 against Sturm Graz last season.

Salzburg won 12 of their 16 league games away from home last term with one draw and three defeats and given their recent dominance of this fixture we feel they should be able to kick off the new campaign with a victory.

The visitors have lost some big names over the summer with Patson Daka and Enock Mwepa joining Leicester and Brighton respectively.  However, this is nothing new for the Austrian champions and they look to have recruited well themselves with the capture of Nicolas Capaldo from Boca Juniors potentially a very shrewd signing.

Sturm Graz managed a 9-0 cup win over Stadl Pura in their season opener and Salzburg overcame WSC Wels 4-1 in their OFB Cup clash and we feel goals could be on the cards in the first game of the new Austrian Bundesliga season.  With that in mind, we feel a Salzburg win with over 2.5 goals has value and a 3-1 victory for the visitors appeals after their two successes over their hosts by the same scoreline last season.
