THE TEAM NEWS

WOLFSBERGER AC

  • Wolfsberger AC have barely had time to catch their breath after they were involved in rollercoaster of a match against LASK which ended 3-3 over the weekend.
  • After going 0-2 down, they showed great character in the second half to score three goals and they looked like they were going to steal the three points only for LASK to strike in the dying moments and claim a dramatic draw.
  • Changes are on the cards given the congested fixture schedule has likely caused some tired legs amongst the squad with coach Ferdinand Feldhofer considering some rotations.

HARTBERG

  • After an excellent 1-2 win at LASK last week, Hartberg were sent crashing back down to earth over the weekend as they were completely outclassed by Salzburg in a 0-6 defeat.
  • While that loss will not have been great for morale, the coach will be emphasising the importance of the matches against the other sides in the division and this trip to face Wolfsberger AC is a prime example of a match they will feel they can get something from if they play to their full potential.
  • There will have been a fair amount of fatigue in the aftermath of Sunday’s defeat as they spent most of the game chasing their opponents so a raft of changes could occur for this away trip.

THE PREDICTION

Although there were some positives from Wolfsberger AC’s 3-3 draw with LASK over the weekend, the fact that they conceded a last-minute equaliser will have irked them so they will look to take their frustrations out on a Hartberg side who were hit for six by Salzburg on the same day. The home side have had no issue putting the ball in the net since the season restarted and, against the leakiest defence in the division, they should wrap this one up early so expect them to be leading at half-time and full-time.
