Outsiders and bottom light SCR Altach is hoping for a positive surprise and points against the Hütteldorfer
The live ticker with all data from the game SCR Altach vs SK Rapid Wien
In the third home game of spring, SCR Altach will host a top Bundesliga team, SK Rapid Wien. The kick-off against the current runner-up is on Saturday at 5 p.m.
For the third time this season, the SCR Altach holds the Red Lantern. After the 1: 3 in Südstadt, the Rheindörflern have to make amends against the record champions. The re will certainly be changes in the Altach starting XI. Neven Subotic, Berkay Dabanli, Danilo Carando and also Samuel Gouet are now ante portas and waiting to prove themselves on the field.
After Salzburg and Sturm Graz, Rapid is already the third top 3 team in the Bundesliga to come to the Cashpoint Arena in the new year. The SCRA has slipped back to the bottom of the table due to the away defeat at Admira and can only surprise the Hütteldorfer, who are currently in good shape. It takes an at least as courageous performance as it did two weeks ago in the home win against Sturm Graz to send the red lantern back to Südstadt.
Jan Zwischenbrugger will definitely be missing on Saturday, who will have to take a break for a game on Wednesday after his red card. Manuel Thurnwald is also unlikely to play – the full-back injured his groin while warming up in Südstadt and will therefore have to pass against his ex-club.
First Salzburg pursuer
Rapid has established itself in the top field of the Bundesliga after the runner-up in the preseason. The Kühbauer troop is only one point behind Ligakrösus Salzburg. The green-whites have only suffered two defeats this season – surprisingly against SV Ried (3: 4) and WSG Tirol (0: 3). In addition, three draws and eleven wins complete the strong record of the 32-time Austrian champion.
Speaking of the balance sheet: that of SCR Altach against Rapid can certainly be seen. The SCRA has already won eleven times against the Hütteldorfer. In the Bundesliga Altach could only win more often against Vienna Austria (13 wins). The last full success in a duel with the West Viennese was almost two years ago. In May 2019, the SCRA won 2-1 away at the Allianz Stadium. The first direct encounter this season was decided by Rapid 3-1 – Mario Stefel scored the only Altach goal in early November.
Two weeks ago, Altach impressively demonstrated how you have to act in uncomfortable conditions against Sturm. How not to do it better then on Wednesday in Südstadt. After the defeat against Admira, it is time to get up again quickly, assume the role of outsider and give the opponent a frosty welcome on the pitch.
