Rapid hosts Altach in round 17 of the Bundesliga. The host`s great 12 match unbeaten run has come to an end and it against Salzburg. It was no surprise however as Salzburg is in top form at the moment and then no team can touch them in this league. Rapid tried to hold them defensively as they did brilliantly lately but it was not their day. Rapid came back a couple of times but still lost 2:3. Good for them that they have great opportunity to get back on track against a very beatable opponent. Before the Salzburg match Rapid conceded only 1 goal in 6 league matches. Rapid is now third with 9 points behind the leader.
Altach hasn`t really had a great season thus far as they hold the 7`th place with 19 points. Fortunately only 1 team will relegate and they are pretty safe that way. It is another season of continuous struggle on the road for Altach as again they are one of the weakest travelers. Altach has 1-2-5 away and a pretty miserable 3:11 gd. They just broke their poor run of losses with a home win over St.Polten but honestly any team wins over Polten these days. Altach lost the previous 4 matches including the cup and conceded 11 goals. Against the in form hosts this will be a long night I reckon.
Rapid is missing the defenders Hofman and Auer but they got replacements says the coach. Altach is without Nutz and Dobras.
By any reasoning this is a clear home win and even the spread should do the trick.
