Our prediction for this Austria Bundesliga match:
Against all odds, Hartberg outplayed title-chasing LASK on the road in their first match after the coronavirus football break. Markus Schopp’s troops created a number of clear-cut chances to score in Wednesday’s clash, and, no doubt, Salzburg will have a big fish to fry in the PROfertil ARENA showdown. Seeing that Hartberg are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Salzburg, a lively contest is on the cards.
The Red Bulls, on the other hand, moved one step closer to clinching the title with a 2-0 win over Rapid Wien. Salzburg aim to get their job done in the championship round as soon as possible, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach at PROfertil ARENA. An entertaining affair is on the cards, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals.
Highlighted Player (Zlatko Junuzovic):
Born in Serbia on 26 September 1987, Zlatko Junuzovic moved to Austria at the age of five and he eventually decided to represent his adopted country at international level. The central midfielder made a name for himself playing for Grazer AK, Austria Karnten and Austria Wien, but it was a move to Werder Bremen that earned him worldwide recognition.
Ever since 2012, Junuzovic has been one of Bundesliga’s leading midfielders, scoring a number of goals from set pieces and producing countless assists for his teammates, and it is a real wonder how he hasn’t joined a bigger club.
Capable of operating as a defensive midfielder, but much more dangerous as an attacking midfielder, Junuzovic has been a key player for Austria for several years now and he was in fine form as Das Team secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals. The highly rated midfielder has been a member of the national team for over ten years and chances are he will not be retiring any time soon.
Highlighted Team (Salzburg):
Salzburg are a professional football club that compete in Austrian Bundesliga. The club’s main sponsors are Red Bull and, as a result, they are well known under the name of the Red Bulls. The club was founded on 13 September, 1933 and they won their first Austrian Bundesliga trophy in 1994.
Salzburg quickly established themselves as the dominant force in the national championship and they are the most successful Austrian club in the 21st century. It has to be noted that they won their tenth Austrian Premier League trophy in 2016, finishing the season nine points clear of second-placed Rapid Wien.
The Red Bulls welcome their rivals at Red Bull Arena, the stadium that was opened on 8 March, 2008. The capacity of the venue is 31 895. Salzburg participated in the 1993/1994 UEFA Cup final, but Italian side proved to be a big catch for the Austrian outfit. Inter recorded a 2-0 win over Salzburg in the final (on aggregate).
