Our prediction for this Austria Bundesliga match:
Red Bull Arena will host Sunday’s football match between Salzburg and LASK, the two teams who were in the race for the title before the coronavirus football break. LASK, though, failed to restart the season in style, and, as a result, they have slim chances of winning their first ever Austrian Bundesliga trophy. The black and whites are low on confidence following a 1-0 loss to Rapid Wien, and given Salzburg’s current form, we predict that the league leaders are going to pick up all three points from the derby.
The Red Bulls rolled over Sturm Graz 5-1 on Wednesday evening, with Patson Daka extending his goal-scoring run. The 21-year-old Zambia starlet looks unstoppable at the moment, and we predict that he is going to lead Salzburg to yet another victory this weekend. In their last meeting at Red Bull Arena Salzburg defeated LASK 1-0.
Highlighted Player (Hee-Chan Hwang):
Hwang Hee-Chan is a product of Pohang Steelers football academy. The Korean attacker, who was born in Chuncheon on January 26, 1996, started his senior career at FC Liefering of Austria and he scored 13 goals in 31 appearances for the club. The 177-cm tall striker currently plays for Red Bull Salzburg and you should bear in mind that he netted 12 goals for the club in the 2016/2017 season.
Hwang Hee-Chan won his second Austrian Bundesliga title with Salzburg in the 2016/2017 season, but the Red Bulls eventually failed to make it to the Champions League group stages. The Salzburg footballer made his South Korea debut in a 2-0 win over Canada on November 11, 2016.
Hee-Chan played regularly for the Korea national football team in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and he scored one goal in the process. The Koreans eventually booked their place at the showpiece tournament in Russia, meaning that the Salzburg attacker will have a chance to prove his worth on the big stage.
Highlighted Team (LASK):
Founded back in 1908, LASK are an Austrian football club that compete in the Bundesliga. Die Laskler play home games at Waldstadion in Pashing. The stadium with the capacity of 7,870 was opened in 1990 and nowadays is known under the name of Raiffeisen Arena. The club, though, welcome their rivals at the 14,000 capacity Linzer Stadion in European competitions.
Back in the 1964/65 season LASK clinched their first and only Austrian Bundesliga trophy, with the team finishing the campaign one point clear of second-placed Rapid Wien. LASK became the first club outside Vienna to win the domestic title and, to make things even better for the fans, die Laskler clinched the domestic cup the same year.
LASK’s home colours are white and violet, whilst they wear black and white when playing on the travels. In the 2018/2029 season LASK booked their place in the Europa League group stages.
