FC Admira Wacker Mödling - FC Wiener Neustadt
Both teams had a good start into spring season, but both are actually in the second half of the table, where they usually are. The difference between them and last placed Wacker Innsbruck became a bit bigger so the relegation isn´t such and dangerous topic anymore for both teams.
Admira with 2-2-1 in this year (2014) so far and good perfomances, but always some weaknesses over longer parts of the game and problems in defense, as they always conceded a goal in 2014. Before the end of winter break Admira got some points back after a 8-points reducing sentence from Bundesliga, but also with this punishment the team didn´t give up and this seems to work really good. In the last game, the 3-2 away win vs WAC the first half was everything else from beautiful to watch. No good chances until minute 40 and then Admira used a very big mistake in WAC defense. The 2-0 was the only goal which was created by Admira. 3-0 was another big individual mistake by WAC defender, who played the ball to Sulimani and was alone in front of WAC keeper Dobnik. With a bad performance of Admira and much power of WAC the win Admira became in danger in the end. For today it will be a tough game, that´s sure, but with abscences of playmaker Schwab (23/4), Sax (16/1), Wessely (3/0) and Drescher (3/0) it will be very hard to play. Especially the missing of Schwab was obvious in the last game vs WAC, although of the win.
FC Wr. Neustadt in the form table (last 5 games) at the second spot behind Salzburg is on a very good trip and the changes I mentioned in earlies picks are working very well (here a quote from my pick two weeks ago: "Coach Pfeiffenberger changed the playing system and tactics into some kind off offensive pressing (a bit like Salzburg). In the three games it worked in differend way, sometimes better, sometimes not. The players said that the system better fits to them and the way they like to play. "). Wr. Neustadt could also win the last game vs. Sturm, who are in a crisis now, but Wr. Neustadt could show again an ambitous performance and won deserved. The good performance and atmosphere in the team is also shown by the offer of Wr. Neustadt President to coach Pfeiffenberger for an contract extension. Wr Neustadt has no important abscences for today, only notable is GK Siebenhandl, but he is long time injured and GK Vollnhofer is replacing him very well.
All in all this is a 50:50 game here and not like the bookies have set the odds. Wr. Neustadt should take at least one point in this Lower Austrian Derby.
MY PICK: WR. NEUSTADT AHC +0,5; Bookie: SBO-Bet; Odd: 2.14
