4 of Mattersburg’s last 5 away games have also produced over 2.5 goals. They conceded twice or more in 4 of them, including a 2-1 defeat away to Rapid in April. Overall backing Over 2.5 Goals looks like it could be the smart bet here, with the hosts the team more likely to progress into a showdown with Sturm Graz for European qualification.
Backing another 2-1 Rapid Win appeals in the Correct Score market.
In terms of creativity, Rapid have done better at home than Altach have on the road, but they’ve done no better in terms of getting the ball in the back of the net, nor have they done any better at the back. If we consider this in conjunction with the fact that the hosts have nothing really to fight for, then it becomes easy to feel that the visitors are slightly overpriced. On this basis, a small play on ‘Altach +1 Handicap’ is warranted.
An additional bet that catches the eye is ‘Under 2.5 Goals’. Given that both teams have done their best work at the back, it’s easy to feel that the chances of a relatively low-scoring affair are greater than the current odds. After all, they’ve surrendered a combined average of just 1.8 goals in their respective home and away games.
