Match Betting (1x2)

Red Bull Salzburg were comfortable winners of the Austrian Football Bundesliga last season, although Jesse Marsch’s team are playing catch-up with LASK this time around.

Red Bull trail the current leaders by six points going into this important clash, with Die Mozartstädter boasting excellent home form at the Red Bull Arena where they have won nine of their eleven matches.

However, before the lockdown, the team ran into problems on the pitch. Missing Erling Haland, they lost at home to LASK before getting knocked out of the Europa League by Eintracht Frankfurt. There was also a league defeat against Altach.

Even so, they are trading at a best price of 1.62 with BetVictor to get back to winning ways against a Rapid Vienna side who sit in third place in the Austrian Bundesliga, a good eight points behind their opponents.

Rapid have actually accrued more points on the road than at home this season, landing seven victories in eleven matches and they’re not without a chance despite being marked down as outsiders.

You can get odds of 5.50 about the Green-Whites, with the draw trading at 4.33 and perhaps that offers better value than riskily backing a team who have seen key players leave the club.

Asian Handicap

Rapid Vienna are certainly no mugs away from home and they will be looking to get revenge against a team who beat them in their opening game of the season at the Ernst Happel Stadion.

If you don’t want to back the visitors to win but think they can make life difficult for the home side, then you can get 1.90 about Rapid with a 1 goal start on the Asian Handicap, meaning money back if they lose by a single goal.

It’s clear that Red Bull are struggling without Minamino and Haland, although you can back Salzburg at 1.98 off -1 which means money back if they win by a single goal and a profit if they oblige with a two-goal win or bigger.

Total Goals

The bookies are anticipating goals being scored, with Over 2.5 Goals trading at just 1.44 and we’re thinking the bookies might have priced this up on the short side.

After all, the Austrian Bundesliga is only just returning and perhaps we should look to back Under 3.5 Goals at 1.75 considering that the last two Red Bull scorelines before the lockdown were 1-0 and 2-0.
