SV Grödig - FC RB Salzburg
After my pick last week against Salzburg the value for this game is on Salzburg again. Derbytime in Salzburg with signs into one direction: Salzburg win here.
After two high losses, 0-6 vs Sturm and 0-4 vs Admira Grödig has to face the strongest team in Austrian Bundesliga. With inferior performances the team could be glad not to concede even more goals in those matches. Against Sturm "there was no fight, no passion and nothing that seemed to be "playing football". A 0-6 loss was the result of "the worst performance of Grödig" (how coach Hütter described the game)." (quote from my pick last week). Against Admira it was about the same situation. It was Admiras game, only one team was playing and until minute 30 there could have been two or three goals. But after missed penalty by Admira they used the corner right after to score the 1-0. After this first goal nothing changed and Admira defeated Grödig with ease. The bad results are also because of many injuries, but that´s not the only reason. The harmony and teamspirit isn´t there at the moment and the news, that coach Adi Hütter, for sure one of the best coaches in Austrian Bundesliga (for me second best after Salzburg coach Schmidt) isn´t helpful to keep up the motivation for the last games. Although the situation about missing players is becoming better, there are still injured players for Saturday: Boller (MID/19/0), Schubert (DEF/5/0), Stankovic (GK/14/0), Strobl (DEF/10/0) and still questionable Fountas (MID-ATT/6/0).
Red Bull Salzburg is coming from two results, which are under their opportunities. A 0-3 loss against Austria was the first loss in league after a long time, but with the shown performance a win or even a draw of Salzburg would have been a big surprise. Last weekend Salzburg played there first time 0-0 this season vs. last placed Wacker Innsbruck. Another time salzburg was the better team, but the efficiency was very bad, as the results shows. On Saturday it´s a derby, but this doesn´t mean a lot for Salzburg. Roger Schmidt, coach of RB Salzburg, assures that there will be goals, after scoring no goals in the last two games. He will test in the last games of the season to get perfections in his tactics in lineup. So the preparation for the next season has started for him now and Salzburg players will give everything to keep their positition in the starting lineups and others will try everything to get there. Missing players will be Schwegler (DEF/17/0), Schiemer(DEF/13/1), Gulacsi (GK/28/0). Schiemer and Schwegler are missing a few weeks now and are replaced well. Gulacsi is now injured after the last game, but Walke is a very good keeper as well.
For me Salzburg will win here again. After two bad results it important for the players and coach Schmidt to keep up the good work in league. The first three H2Hs were easily won by Salzburg with 4-1, 3-0 and 6-0. This high results are caused by the playing style of both teams, as they are really offensive teams (and Grödig tries a bit to copy Salzburg´s style).
