Vorwarts Steyr vs Wolfsberger (Am) by Goleador
Austria, Regionalliga Mitte (Central)
SK Vorwärts Steyr - Wolfsberger AC II
Two teams, who are close to relegation will face each other on Tuesday (the game date was set today, but after continuous rain the match is set on Tuesday). Steyr on 13th spot, which means they are on spot above relegation zone will host the second team of Bundesliga club Wolfsberg AC (WAC). But 7 points deficit to Steyr seems much, with only three games left to play.
In the last weeks I was betting twice against Steyr, but now I completly changed my mind? No. But one big problem of Steyr is gone. The most injured or questionable players are back in the team and fit. Especially the two offensive players Djokic and Dimic bring many opportunities into the offensive game of Steyr. Steyr won the last two games against teams who are in their area of the table as the could beat Vöcklamarkt (12.) with 3-1 and Villacher SV (14.) with 1-4 away win. Both games were decided in first half, when Steyr took the lead with 2-0 or 3-0. In both games Djokic could score, but also Dimic, Masovic and former Erste Liga player Popp showed good performances. So there are two wins in a row for Steyr and this gives the team a lot of self confidence. The team changed in their way the play after the first win and seems to have fun again. Also the fan support was big (for Regionalliga conditions) after the first win and a expect the same for this home game, as Steyr can come a place in next years Regionalliga Mitte much closer.
WAC II is on a really bad trip at the time. 0-1-5 in the last six games, losing the last two games 5-0 (away) against Allerheiligen (11.) and 0-3 at home vs Lafnitz (3.). Last weekend they had to play against Allerheiligen, at team that also wanted to avoid relegation (now they are save). In the first half WAC II had a bit more of the game, but the counterattacks from Allerheiligen weren´t defended well and so WAC II was 2-0 in the back at half time. Then WAC II had to take more risk, but Allerheiligen scored again. In the end WAC II was one man down after a brutal foul and Allerheiligen had more chances and WAC II lost 5-0. During the week WAC II had to play against one of the best teams in this league at the time. Lafnitz was their oppnent and the result of 0-3 for Lafnitz shows perfectly, how the game was. Their was no chance to win this for WAC II. Before this game vs Lafnitz also the coach was fired and now they hope for an effect was big for the last game, but as mentioned they lost. After four days more of work for the new coaches Jochum and Messner, with the team, maybe the situation will change, but I don´t think so.
For me the home win has definetly value as the team of Steyr has a good run and self confidence again. WAC II is a very young team and I don´t think they can come back in this season and this game vs full motivated Steyr players will be really tough for them. (The bookies still have today as match day, so maybe they will change or take the bet out and offer it new again in the next days).
