Sturm Graz vs Rapid Vienna by Goleador

Sturm-Graz
VS
Rapid-Vienna
After a two losses at home Sturm will face Rapid again at home in Sundays top game of Bundesliga.

 

Before the season I estimated Sturm as a team to fight for the EL places in Bundesliga, but after the bad performance in the last games they won´t get this place. Last Thursday Sturm lost vs Breidablik from Iceland at home. The teams sometimes seems to be not a real unit and after last games the media sees a upcoming crisis for Sturm. Sturm was the weakest team in second half last season and football experts claim, that this crisis never ended and there is a big mistake in building up the new system with new players and new coach. The performance from the bad game vs Breidablik continued last Sunday vs Grodig (last year promoted from Erste Liga). In this game, especially in the first half Grodig had far more possession and there were not big chances on both sides, except once, Beric hit the post. In 2nd half Sturm also had just a few chances and but the strikers and midfield are not really connected. The problem also is, that coach Milanic wants the players to fit in his system. but in todays football the coach has to adapt his system to the plyers available.

 

Rapid is in a time of building up a new team with more young player and not many new transfers as the director have to save money. Although of this fact there was bought Petsos CDM from Greuther Furth and GK Radlinger from Hannover. Also some young players from the Academy and second team raised to 1st team. After the out in Cup against third league team LASK their were some discussions about they new way but the result against WR. Neustadt on Saturday, were Rapid won 4-0 the mood is much better again.

 

I don´t usually bet on Rapid cause I can´t be objective as a Rapid fan, but this is more a bet against Sturm.

Thanks to all of you. The game was crazy, to be honest. In after short time penalty for Sturm, but before there was a foul the referee didn´t see and Sturm didn´t act fair to play the ball into the out and Hofmann fouled Sturm player: red card and penalty. Rapid would have scored the equalising before HT but referee saw an offside of Burgstaller, although it was a correct goal. After the HT great start of Rapid with one man down and Rapid was the better team and defender Berendt scored 1-3 with an awesome long shot. Than a little mistake in defense offered the opportunity for Beichler to sco
