THE TEAM NEWS

STURM GRAZ

  • Sturm Graz’s season has been littered with inconsistency throughout but they did enough to secure a place in the Championship Round by picking up nine wins along the way.
  • They have curiously performed considerably better away from home than on their own turf this season and a big focus for Nestor El Maestro and his team in this phase of the competition will be to improve results at the Merkur Arena.
  • Their struggles at home were no more apparent than in their last meeting with Wolfsberger AC when they went down 0-4 in November – Sturm Graz’s heaviest defeat of the season and indeed their worst in the Bundesliga since 2017.

WOLFSBERGER AC

  • Wolsberger AC comfortably finished in the top half of the league table after a regular campaign which saw them win exactly half of their games which included scalps over the likes of LASK so they will prove to be a tough opponent for any team in the Championship Round.
  • Wolfsberger AC boast the league’s top scorer in their ranks with Shon Weissman having been in sensational form this season after plundering 21 goals in the league phase while he was also on target in last week’s friendly win over Mattersburg and he is expected to hit the ground running.
  • The 0-4 win over Sturm Graz at this very stadium will surely give Wolfsberger AC a psychological edge going into this encounter as that was a match they dominated from start to finish.

THE PREDICTION

Although some time has passed since their last meeting in November, Wolfsberger AC’s heavy victory will still be fresh in the minds of the Sturm Graz players who will regard it as the low point of their season. The home side will of course be desperate to make amends for that sorry display but containing Shom Weissman has proven to be one of the most difficult tasks in the Austrian Bundesliga this season. The Wolfsberger AC man looked sharp in getting on the scoresheet in last week’s friendly and can be backed to find the net once again here.
