Rapid Wien vs Sparta Prague Prediction
This will be one of the most interesting ties in the second round of the UEFA Champions League qualification matches. Both teams have a big history in their countries and want desperately to reach the group stages.
Rapid Wien have a slight edge by playing at the Allianz Stadion in Vienna. Nonetheless. The bookies are favoring Sparta to win in a very tight battle with Rapid’s win having odds of 2.46 and Sparta’s win 2.80 at Vbet.
It is too close to call the winner of this match. We find the double chance for a home win or a draw with odds of 1.42 at Vbet to be a more risk-free bet given the fact that Sparta have lost seven of their eight games on the road in Europe, while rapid lost just two of their 12 European home games.
