My 2nd match pick is from the Austrian Bundesliga between Lask Linz and Wacker Innsbruck
The host has won this fixture at home in 4 of the 5 times it has been played with 3-1 and 1-0 scoreline on 2 occasions each. The difference in quality between both teams is even bigger now than previous match ups, as the host currently top on form table with 11 pts from 5 matches, while the visitors have 2 pts and are at the bottom of the 5 games recent performance table.
Hosts have scored in all of their last 10 matches, with 2 goals or more goals scored in each of their last 3 matches, and 2 goals or more in each of their last 5 home matches. Visitors have conceded at least 1 goal in 100% of their away matches, and scored in 80% of their away matches, and failed to score in 5 of their last 6 league matches.
The visitors have lost to Nil in their recent 2 fixtures against clubs right above and below them on the league table, and are settled in 10th of 12th position, and within the relegation play-off zone. The hosts will be using this match to prepare for the play-offs so they can challenge RB Salzburg for the league title, so I expect a little more than just winning from them.
I expect the host will be pushing for a convincing win in front of their home crowd, possibly not conceding a goal and scoring a couple for themselves.
Home (-1) is my prediction with expected score line of 2 - 0
