THE TEAM NEWS

LASK

  • LASK were involved in a topsy-turvy six-goal thriller with Wolfsberger AC on Sunday in match which saw them go 2-0 up, concede three second-half goals and then snatch a draw with a last-minute equaliser.
  • That result is perhaps the final nail in the coffin for their title hopes as they are now eight points behind leaders Salzburg and have slipped to fourth in the league standings.
  • There were some tired legs towards the end of Sunday’s encounter so it would be no surprise to see the coach rotate his pack for the visit of Rapid Wien.

RAPID WIEN

  • Rapid Wien bounced back superbly from last week’s defeat to Salzburg by dismantling Sturm Graz with ease in a 4-0 demolition job on Sunday.
  • They have now lost just one of their last 11 Bundesliga games and if they can maintain their form they will have every chance of claiming the second Champions League qualifying spot.
  • Kelvin Arase impressed with a first-half brace on Sunday but had to be withdrawn at half-time due to a muscular issue and his potential absence would be a blow to the side’s attacking threat.

THE PREDICTION

Two of the league’s chasing pack meet here but they appear to be trending in opposite directions. LASK have not really got themselves going since the season restarted and are conceding goals at an alarming rate which is in stark contrast to their form prior to the break. Those defensive vulnerabilities are likely to be exploited by a Rapid Wien side who hit four on the weekend and will have their heart set on an away victory here.
