Another Europa League qualifier to look forward to with Austria Wien v Spartak Trnava facing off in Vienna. Austria Wien finished their season well. 4 wins of their last 5 games in the league, placing 3rd. They perhaps should have finished higher but all in all, were satisfied with their form over the season.
Spartak Trnava finished 4th in the league last season. This resulted in a place in these qualifiers. They managed 4 wins in last 5 league games to propel them into 4th place. Both sides will look to add to last year’s efforts by moving up the table and progressing in Europe.
Austria Wien have added 4 players to the first team squad during the summer. 2 defenders, 1 midfielder and 1 striker. Meanwhile, Spartak Trnava have replaced Pepe Guilavogui with Togo striker Loic Gagnon. They have also added a midfielder to the ranks in Anton Sloboda.
Wien still have Alexander Gorgon up top. He provided 19 goals in the league last season. Trnava have their lead man available. Slovakian David Depetris found the net on 15 occasions last season.
Austria Vienna (Aut) and Trnava (Svk) will meet this Thursday at 16:00 in Europa League Qualifications semi-finals 1st leg, in a very unbalanced match where the hosts of this match are the big favourites to go further in the next phase and are the clear favourites at the online bookmakers. This is the first direct match between the two teams, we expect a close match from the outset and a lot of goals.
Austria Vienna comes after eight victories in a row, they have scored over 2,5 goals in seven of their last eight matches. We expect Austria to put a lot of pressure on their hosts today.
Trnava comes after two victories and are undefeated in their last eight matches in all competitions.
So far, Austria Wien have had a very good pre-season. 2 of 3 wins in their friendlies. 100% record in Europa League and a 6-0 cup win. Trnava had only 2 friendlies before starting their Europa campaign – lost 1, drew 1. However, have won 3 of 4 Europa games and drawing the other. Wien have won 5 of last 10 at home. Trnava have only won 2 of last 10 away, losing 4 and drawing 4.
Our prediction for this opening leg between these 2 sides is a 2-0 win for Austria Wien at 13/2. We think this is a task Wien can brush aside quite easily. For this reason, I am also going for Austria Wien HT/FT result at 6/4.
