Vorwarts Steyr vs Lafnitz by Goleador
Austria, Regionalliga Mitte (Central)
SK Vorwärts Steyr - SV Lafnitz
For this match I can´t understand the odd-development of the last hours, but I definitly have to play this bet. A few weeks before the odds would have been set right here as Lafnitz and Steyr were 9th and 10th after round 16. Now, four rounds after winter break the situation has changed.
Steyr with 1-1-2 after winter break doesn´t look really bad at the first view, but the team now is in fight against relegation. But before the last games there was some kind of euphoric atmosphere after some pretty good transfers. With Djokic and Dimic two offensive players from Regionalliga Ost team Wiener Viktoria were bought. Popp and Demir also should strenghten the team as well as Masovic. Prandstätter (MID/12/1) and Orosz (ST/15/4) left the club, which was a loss for the team. All the transfered players seemed to improve the mood in the team too and get more professionality into it, but after four round played in spring the hope for a better place in the table is gone.
Although Grosalber and Masovic come back after missing the last game(s) there is a long list of missing players for tomorrow: Husein Balic (MID/19/2), Rexhe Bytyci (ST/16/3), Gergely Füzfa (MID/15/0), David Klug (ST/14/0), Hussein Susic (DEF/1/0), Hubert Zauner (MID/0/0), Rade Djokic (ST/3/0), Michael Lageder (MID/19/1). Coach Kraft said with gallows humour:"If 8 of 21 fielders are missing, the choice of the line-up is easy".
Lafnitz on the other side had a great start after winter: 10 points out of four games and a goal difference of 9:0 shows clearly how strong Lafnitz is at the time. Last week a high win against Sturm Graz II was gained with a good performance. With Rodler and Zingl two player with Erste Liga experience are bringing more quality into the team. With Simek and Gluhak two Croatian defensive players from second Croation league were taken under contract to stabilise the defense and this is working really with Gluhak and Rodler as CBs in Defense. I don´t know about important missings on Lafnitz´side, so there should be all starters available.
For me Lafnitz is favourite in this game and the odd offers great value for me. The only reason for such an odd can be the bad away stats of 1-2-7 of Lafnitz, but last week the high 4-0 win was Sturm was also and away game and Lafnitz is in great form at the time.
