Both teams will score

Both teams have proven to be lethal in the final third and for that, we expect a goal haul in their first match of Austria's Bundesliga 2021/22 season. Sturm Graz recorded a 9-nil victory against Stadl-Paura in Austria's OFB Cup, a result that should motivate the hosts in this fixture. On the other hand, RB Salzburg bagged a 4-1 victory on the road against WSC Hertha in the OFB Cup. Our first pick is also based on the fact that these teams have been consistent in scoring goals in the last ten games.

Lots of goals are expected on matchday

We are also predicting lots of goals in this fixture. Both teams play a highly offensive football, which has earned them several goals in the last ten fixtures. The hosts average 3.7 goals in the last ten games while RB Salzburg averages 3.0 goals in the same number of games.

More than a goal at the break

We are also predicting more than one goal at half-time. Because these teams seem to score lots of goals., we are expecting a high scoring match at full-time that will have at least two goals by the half-time break.

Match Preview: Sturm Graz Kicks Off 2021/22 Bundesliga Campaign against RB Salzburg

Our match preview further sheds light on how these teams have performed in recent matches. With that, you should make the right selection from our best three predictions above.

Sturm Graz

Sturm Graz kicks off their campaign in the new season at home. It comes on the back of a 9-0 victory in the OFB Cup, a result we believe should motivate the hosts in their first match of the season. The hosts finished fourth last season, going ahead to claim the third spot in the Championship Round. After Europa League qualification, we expect a highly motivated Sturm Graz to go ham opponents, especially in their first game of the season given that there are lots of matches to play in 2021/22.

Red Bull Salzburg

RB Salzburg plays their first match of the season on the road against Europa League candidates, Sturm Graz. The visitors won the league last season and went ahead to bag the Championship Round. With a spot in the Champions League confirmed, we expect a tough fixture where RB Salzburg looks to replicate their fine form last season. The visitors’ new manager, Matthias Jaissle has 1W after one match in charge and should, therefore, play for another victory in his first league game.
