Rapid Vienna – Austria Vienna

 

THE VIENNA DERBY is one of the oldest in Europe. Only the Old firm Derby Celtic Glasgow against Glasgow Rangers was played more often.

As the only two teams left in  Austria, they have never been relegated out of the highest league. According to the statistics Rapid is with 119 victories in front towards the 105 victories of the Austria.

Only 64 matches ended with a draw. In the current season both teams head for the championship and are the only two favourites besides the current champion Red Bull Salzburg. Both teams qualified for the group stage of the UEFA Euro League and perform an offensive strategy aiming for as many goals instead of defending (Rapid 30:11 goals; Austria 26:17 goals after 13 matches played).

However at the Rapid home ground (Hanappi stadium) the statistics show a clear case in the last 10 matches played (4 victories for Rapid, 1 draw; with 3 times more than 2 goals).

According to the fact that the viennese Derby is a matter of prestige and both teams head for the championship we await an offensive spectacle form the first minute on. According to the statistics in the last years a good choice for betting is Over 2,5 goals. Another sure bet should be a victory for Rapid.
