• These two sides have drawn three of their last six league meetings.
  • Rapid Vienna average 1.45 points per home game.
  • Sturm Graz average 1.64 points per away game.

Rapid Vienna lost 2-0 away at the league leaders Salzburg in midweek and Sturm Graz lost 2-1 at home to Wolfsberger, so both sides will be aiming to bounce back with a victory on Sunday.

A win for the hosts this weekend could propel Rapid into second spot if results elsewhere go in their favour, but Sturm Graz could move up one place and into fifth with as little as a draw. Three of the last six meetings between these two clubs have ended in stalemates and rapid have drawn as many games at home as they have won (4), while Sturm Graz have already played out three stalemates on the road.

Under 2.5 goals have been produced in five of the last six encounters between the pair and three of Sturm Graz’s last four league games have also seen fewer than 3-goals scored. The hosts net an average of 1.82 goals per home game and concede an average of 1.27 goals while Sturm Graz score an average of 1.91 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.18 goals, and we have backed the pair to play out a 1-1 draw.

With rapid averaging 1.45 points per home game and the visitors averaging 1.64 points per way game, we feel like a draw is the most likely outcome on Sunday and can see both clubs getting on the scoreboard once and cancelling each other out.
