The new Austrian Bundesliga season starts on Friday night and the curtain-raiser on the new season is a clash between Rapid Vienna and Salzburg as the betting tips continue at the Allianz Stadion.

Rapid Vienna Prediction – Can Rapid Vienna continue early success?

A successful pre-season was followed up with a resounding cup win for Rapid Vienna as they’ve come out of the blocks in explosive fashion this season.

4 wins from their 5 warm-up matches saw the hosts record wins over Leobendorf, Jablonec, Nurnberg and Pinkafeld, the latter being a 9-0 thrashing away from home.

However, Rapid Vienna weren’t done yet with scoring 9 goals as they trounced Allerheiligen 9-1 away from home in the domestic cup.

The hosts will therefore be in confident mood ahead of their season opening clash with last season’s Bundesliga title winners, Salzburg.

The regular season ended in disappointing fashion for Rapid Vienna who finished in 8th place and dropped down into the Relegation Round.

However, they bounced back in emphatic fashion and almost claimed a Europa League spot but were denied by Sturm Graz in the Europa League play-off final.

Rapid Vienna lost at home to Sturm Graz and also to Bohemians in a club friendly but have since responded with wins over Jablonec and Nurnberg.

They’ll do well, however, to get something from this opening night clash with Salzburg though as their opponents have won 5 of the last 6 encounters.

Salzburg Prediction – Can Salzburg continue dominance over hosts?

The visitors have also demonstrated a successful pre-season as Salzburg have lost just 1 of their 6 warm-up matches.

That defeat came in the shape of a 1-0 defeat at home to Bulgarian side, CSKA Sofia, but otherwise, Salzburg have registered some impressive wins.

Victories over Kirchanschoring, Feyenoord, Vorwarts Steyr and Kayserispor along with a domestic cup win over Parndorf 7-1 away places them in good shape for this opening clash.

Last season, Salzburg claimed another domestic Bundesliga title and earned a place in this season’s Europa League.

Results away from home have been generally very good, as the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches on the road in all competitions.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches on their travels in the Bundesliga, and their dominance over Rapid Vienna, Salzburg look set to grab the points here.

Last season’s leading goalscorer, Dabour (20 goals) has since joined Sevilla, but watch out for striker Prevljak who is expected to lead the line tonight.


Key-Facts – Rapid Vienna v Salzburg

  • Rapid Vienna have won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions
  • Salzburg have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 on the road in all competitions
  • Salzburg have won 5 of the last 6 encounters against Rapid Vienna


Betting Tips Verdict

Rapid Vienna have made a promising start to their season but Salzburg are a cut above the rest of the competition in the Austrian Bundesliga and look in good shape to take the spoils here.
