Sturm Graz vs Rakow: UEFA Europa League Match Preview
Sturm Graz still have an outside chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League. The club are three points behind Sporting CP coming into the game. Sturm Graz have only managed one victory in the four league outings. However, they have recent form that puts them in a great ship coming into the game. Coach Christian Ilzer will come into the fixture with Gregory Wüthrich, Seedy Jatta, Otar Kiteishvili, and William Böving out because of injuries.
Rakow are set to finish bottom of the group barring a surprise turnaround of results in the last two games.

Coach Dawid Szwarga will be missing Kamil Pestka, Lukasz Zwolinski, John Yeboah, Stratos Svarnas, Adrian Gryszkiewicz, Ivi López, and Giannis Papanikolaou are injured.
