Rapid Vienna vs Anorthosis: Prediction and Betting Tips
Rapid Vienna looking for a Europa League groups stage appearance
The Austrian team had their sights on the Champions League qualifications but were eliminated last week by Sparta Prague of the Czech Republic. Rapid had won the first leg in Vienna 2-1 but lost the second leg in Prague 2-0. They now have the chance to play in the Europa League group stage if they advance past Anortosis and Zorya Luhansk of Ukraine.
Rapid Vienna finished second in the Austrian Bundesliga last season which allowed them to take part in the Champions League qualification rounds. Dietmar Kuhbauer’s team have not won in their last three matches and have one point from two matches in the Bundesliga. Rapid need to register a convincing win in the first leg to have an easier task in Cyprus.
Rapid Vienna Key Points
- Rapid have won four of their last ten matches
- The average goals scored by Rapid in their last ten matches is 1.7
- Rapid failed to score in three of their last ten matches
Will Anorthosis’ pre-season form help them in this match?
One of the most successful teams in Cyprus, Anorthosis have won the Cypriot League 13 times in addition to the Cup on 11 occasions. Anorthosis are one of three clubs that never played in the second division. The Blue and White were the first team from Cyprus to play to have participated in the Champions League group stages.
The only competitive match Anorthosis played this season was the Cypriot Super Cup against Omonia and lost 2-1. Coach Temor Ketsbaia’s team won their four pre-season friendlies and have a fully fit squad coming into this match.
Anorthosis Key Points
- 1.1 goals per match is what Anorthosis managed to score in their last ten matches
- Anorthosis have just one clean sheet in ten games
- The number of times Anorthosis scored in the last ten matches is seven
Rapid Vienna vs Anorthosis Prediction
Despite their shaky form in recent games, Rapid Vienna are the favorites to win this game. Vbet are offering 1.55 for a Rapid win. We think the Austrians’ recent form is worrying for their fans and coach Kuhbauer and will have to improve to get a much-needed positive result.
Anorthosis travel to Vienna with the intention of coming back with the least of damages. The Cypriots have conceded in all of their last ten away matches which will be a concern for Ketsbaia as they need to find the defensive strategy to keep a clean sheet.
In the combos section at Vbet, an interesting bet is the double chance match result and the total goals in the match.
