Teams from leagues of different levels and strengths meet today. Most likely, the Croatian club will be very difficult in this game. ” Rapid ” had more time to rest, as the new tournament had not yet started, while in the test matches the Austrian team looked very decent.
It’s hard for anyone to give preference in this duel, but still we assume that the guests will go to the next stage.
Our prediction is the victory of “Rapid” and we bet on this on the line of BC Parimatch with odds 1.94
