Rapid Vienna vs Zorya Luhansk: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Aug 19 2021
Rapid Vienna vs Zorya Luhansk prediction for Thursday’s Europa League qualification round clash at Allianz Stadion in Vienna. Second in the Austrian Bundesliga last season Rapid Vienna are one step away from the Europa League group stage as they host Zorya Luhansk of Ukraine. You can find our free prediction and betting tips in the following lines.

Rapid Vienna is one step away from another EL group stage

Rapid Vienna is the most successful club in Austria in terms of trophies. In fact, The Green-Whites have 32 Austrian Bundesliga titles to their name, more than any other domestic club. In addition, Rapid played in the final of the Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup twice. But they lost on both occasions. 

The Austrians missed playing in the group stage of the Europa League once in the last eight seasons. However, they shouldn’t find much trouble advancing this season yet again. Rapid Vienna were eliminated from the Champions League by Sparta Pague this season. But they did well to hold off Cypriot Anorthosis’s challenge in the Europa League semi-final and beat them 4-2 on aggregate.

Rapid Vienna Key Points

  • Rapid lost their last two matches
  • The Austrians have scored in all of their last five matches
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in Rapid’s last five matches

Zorya Luhansk in a historical chance for a final phase appearance in the EL

Zorya are playing in the Europa League after finishing third in last season’s Ukrainian Premier League. Despite the fact that Zorya never won the Premier League, they are one of three clubs from Ukraine to have won the Soviet League. That was back in 1972. In Ukraine, their best finish was runners-up in 2015-16 and 2020-21 of the Ukraine Cup.

Still, Zorya had a slow start to their season in the Premier League with just four points from as many matches. In fact “The Men” have won just one game against Inhulets who lie at the bottom of the table with no points. To conclude, coach Skrypnyk will do his best to prepare his team well for this tie. Finally, this could be their first-ever participation in a group stage phase in Europe.

Zoya Key Points

  • Zorya won just one of their last five matches
  • “The Men” scored in eight of their last ten matches
  • BTTS happened in Zorya’s six of last ten matches

Rapid Vienna vs Zorya Luhansk Prediction

The Bookies are offering Rapid Vienna to qualify odds of 1.65, while Zorya’s odds o qualify is 2.15, all at Vbet. That means the bookies don’t see much difference between these two teams.

However, a Rapid Vienna win in the first leg pays 1.80 which is a very probable outcome and the odds quite high. The reason for that is Rapid’s shaky start to the season with two wins in the last six matches.

Finally, we think Rapid have the edge over their visitors and are capable of ending the first leg with a win. But coach Kuhbauer needs to raise his team’s morale to bounce back from their recent two defeats.
