Salzburg awaiting Rapid Vienna in 20th round of Austrian Tipico Bundesliga. They are currently at 2nd position at the table with one point and one match less than Austria Vienna. Salzburg is doing fine job in defending of the title in Austria, they showed decent performances in this campaign, as they won the title in previous season they were also playing in qualifications for Champions league but in 3rd round were eliminated by Swedish Malmo and later in final round of qualifications for Europa league were also eliminated by Dinamo Minsk. Salzburg is now fully focused on their domestic league, and they must go for a victory to reclaim 1st position at the table. They suffered only three defeats in league in this season, two on the road and only one in front of their fans against Rapid in 2nd round. They are now coming here after three consecutive draws and now are facing against one of their biggest rivals and to earn all three points must play on very high level. They also managed to reach quarter finals by eliminating Ried at home 4:2. In last five duels against Rapid Salzburg celebrated two times, got one draw and suffered two defeats and it's interesting that both of their victories were on the road and both defeats at home. They now must try to win here at all costs and to achieve that must show outstanding performances.
Rapid Vienna meanwhile managed to reach Europa league knockout stage and they achieved victory against Dinamo Minsk in final round at home 2:1 while before that celebrated over Ried in league. Rapid is playing in variable form in this campaign and they didn't impressed with their performances on the road. So far Rapid celebrated 11 times, got only one draw and suffered 7 defeats. They must try to find consistency in their game and it will be very hard for them to achieve positive outcome against Salzburg. Rapid is playing great offensive football and after Salzburg are most effective team in league with 40 goals scored while conceded 26. Rapid must go for a victory to reach leading position but they are not looking very confident at the moment. Rapid showed that they are capable to achieve great results but they must try to improve their performances on the road. Previous season Rapid ended at 2nd position at the table, and they must improve their shape in order to try to win the title after 8 seasons. They are for sure one of the best Austrian teams and all they now need is consistency and with goal scoring and defensive skills that they showed so far for sure are able to achieve great results in this season.
This will for sure be very interesting clash between two most effective teams in league, Salzburg is in decent shape and now will go for a victory here in front of their fans while Rapid must will for sure try to achieve positive outcome but I expect that hosts will manage to celebrate here, they are playing very good at home and I believe that now will manage to overcome Rapid.
