Austria Wien vs FC Red Bull Salzburg: Preview & Prediction
Vienna Austria can be quite satisfied with their previous season. 2nd place behind Krösus and Thursday’s opponent Salzburg, the leaders in Vienna favorites should be satisfied. And yet you will not get rid of the feeling that more could have been possible. The team of Thorsten Fink missed the great playful accents for a long time, for a long time was too much dependent on the playmaker Raphael Holzhauser. Although this dependency is still present to some extent, the central midfielder is now playing a much more offensive role, which is also reflected in the results. An advantage for the Viennese could be their strength in standard situations on Thursday. Here, Austria is the best team in the league, which in turn is to be found mainly in wooden houses as well as strong headball players like Rotpuller or Filipovic. As dangerous as they are offensive, so sloppy, these actors act on the defensive phase.
Salzburg is in Austria what Bayern Munich is in the German Bundesliga. Namely the measure of all things. It was just as unjustified as wrong to reduce the successes to the financial support of Red Bull. Salzburg is working sustainably, which can be measured not only by the successes of the junior teams. Also this season, the “bulls” hurry from success to success. Last Saturday the Admira – despite the already fixed title of the championship – was defeated with a 2-0 victory. It was the second “to-zero victory” of the Salzburg in series, after a week before also Rapid abroad with 1: 0 to the knee. Vienna therefore seems to be a good ground for the table leader. The great strength of Salzburg is without doubt the aggressive and high pressing, which the team also practiced under Oscar Garcia, without forgetting the defensive, as was often the case in the past. This is also reflected in all statistics.
