The Austrian Bundesliga returned last week under a shroud of controversy. Leaders before the break, LASK are now fourth and face Rapid Wien on Wednesday – who sit directly above them.

LASK Preview – Can LASK put recent disappointments behind them and return to winning ways?

It would be hard to believe before going into the prolonged break for COVID, but LASK find themselves in fourth spot. Deducted six points because of breaking social distancing rules during training earlier on in the pandemic, the team who have led the league for much of the season are now fourth in the Bundesliga.
LASK have not responded well to that setback, either, having failed to win either of their first two games back. A shock 2-1 defeat at home to Hartberg last midweek came before a 3-3- draw away to now second placed Wolfsberger. As a result, the Linz club are eight points behind RB Salzburg.
Our betting prediction:
Taxiarchis Fountas to score anytime

Having won four straight in the league before the layoff, including an impressive win in Salzburg, it was all looking so positive for LASK. They now have to find a way to regroup and at least chase down the second Champions League position.
Key to their hopes of recapturing that form will be Brazilian striker Klauss. The 23 year old is on 10 goals at the moment and is his team’s top scorer.

Rapid Wien Preview – Will Rapid build on strong weekend showing as they chase Champions League qualification?

It’s probably not the position that Rapid would have thought they would have found themselves in so early after the resumption but they will be very pleasantly surprised. Sunday’s impressive 4-0 win at home to Sturm Graz was the perfect way to respond to a 2-0 defeat away to leaders Salzburg a few days prior.

As a result, they come into this game level on points with Wolfsberger and bang in contention for that second place finish. It also means that it’s just one defeat in their last 11 Bundesliga games and a run which should give them confidence for the remaining matches.

Just as their opponents have a talented and prolific striker, Rapid have one of their own. Greek hitman Taxiarchis Fountas is on 15 goals for the season. At 24 years old, and something of a journeyman, it’s already his best return of his career.

He scored on of the team’s four goals at the weekend and will be hoping to increase his tally further tomorrow evening, helping Rapid move further clear of LASK in the process.
