Sturm

"Sturm" finished third in the Austrian Championship following the results of the last season. Christian Ilzer's team scored 36 points, losing 15 points to the leader and losing a ticket to the Champions League to Rapid only by additional indicators. The team conceded 34 goals in 32 games and this is the second figure after the national champion.

In the offseason, Sturm had several test matches, among which one can note a 1:1 draw with Crvena Zvezda, a 9:1 victory over Liefering and a 0:1 defeat to Cracovia. The last meeting of the team took place last week in the Cup of the country, in which the club won 9:0 against Stadl Paura.

Salzburg

Salzburg won the league title last season. The club's footballers scored a record 94 goals in 32 games and conceded only 33 goals, which was the best indicator among all teams. New coach Matthias Jaissle played several friendly matches with the team in preparation for the new championship. We can note the 3:0 victory over Olympiacos and the 1:3 defeat against Marseille.

In the cup match a week ago, Salzburg beat Hertha Wells with a score of 4:1. The team sold several strong players, including Patson Daka (Leicester City, € 30m) and Enok Mwepu (Brighton, € 23m). Reinforced the roster of Roko Simic from Lokomotiv Zagreb and Nicholas Capaldo from Boca Juniors.

Prediction

The good results of “Sturm” in friendly games and in the cup match can be disregarded, since these were all teams of a completely different scale than their upcoming rival. The club from Graz could not beat a less strong team in the offseason, while in the last four home confrontations against Salzburg they lost three times with a large score. In our opinion, the guests will try to seize the initiative in the championship race from the starting rounds and will be able to defeat their direct competitor in this game. Their advantage in goals scored in past dates gives reason to assume that this victory will become confident.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1) for Salzburg. For such an outcome, 1xBet bookmaker offers odds of 1.95.

Both clubs have scored a lot last season and have continued that tradition in friendly matches. The attack of both of them is at a high level and the problem areas in the defense allow the opponents to realize their chances. We believe that the starting game will show good speeds and will allow both teams to hit the opponent's goal, which happened in the previous eight head-to-head confrontations out of ten.

Our second bet will be for both to score. This bet can be made for 1.61.
