The Austrian Bundesliga action continues this Sunday afternoon when Salzburg play host to Mattersburg as the betting tips continue at the Red Bull Arena with the hosts looking to record back-to-back wins.

Salzburg Prediction – Can Salzburg back up at home?

Sunday’s hosts started their new Austrian Bundesliga campaign in positive fashion as they recorded a solid 2-0 win away at Rapid Vienna.

It was a continuation to the end of last season’s domestic season as Salzburg built upon their 4-match winning streak last weekend.

Salzburg finished top of the Austrian Bundesliga not only at the end of the regular season but also at the conclusion of the Championship Round.

This has earned the hosts a place in the group stages of the Champions League, but it’s back to the bread and butter of the domestic scene.

The home side have put together an incredible 44-match unbeaten sequence on home turf at their Red Bull Arena in the Bundesliga.

This will therefore represent a very tough trip to Salzburg for the visitors, Mattersburg, who have lost 6 of the last 7 encounters against their hosts.

The hosts have also been amongst the goals on the domestic scene too as they scored the joint highest number of goals at home last season (tied with Austria Vienna).

Forwards Prevljak and Minamino look to be the host’s most dangerous scoring threats up front.

Mattersburg Prediction – Can Mattersburg also claim 2 wins on trot?

The visitors also claimed a win on opening day of last week’s Austrian Bundesliga season with a 2-1 home win against Hartberg.

However, Mattersburg know they have a mountain to climb if they’re to beat their hosts, Salzburg, this Sunday afternoon.

As mentioned earlier, they don’t possess a great record against their hosts in recent times, and they’ll do well to walk away with anything here I fancy.

With just 2 wins out of their last 7 matches overall in the Austrian top flight, Mattersburg’s task looks a very tough one indeed.

Wins over Rapid Vienna and Hartberg are all they have to show for their efforts from these last 7 matches, while results away from home have been even worse.

On the road, Mattersburg have lost 5 of their last 6 matches on their travels with their one highlight being a 2-0 win at Admira towards the end of last season.

They narrowly missed out on the cut for the top six last season, with an away record of 4-2-5 14/16 being one of the contributing factors in them missing out.


Key-Facts – Salzburg v Mattersburg

  • Salzburg are unbeaten in their last 44 home matches in the Bundesliga
  • Mattersburg have lost 5 of their last 6 matches on their travels
  • Salzburg have won 6 of the last 7 meetings against Mattersburg


Betting Tips Verdict

Salzburg hold an excellent record on home turf and it’s hard to see Mattersburg breaching this today.
