Rapid Wien faces in the 14th round of the Austrian football Bundesliga on SV Mattersburg. Rapid stands current on the third rank and fights with Austria Wien and Red Bull Salzburg for the league table lead, Mattersburg is merely on rank 8. Hence, a victory of Rapid would be here anything but a big surprise.
Rapid counts to the strongest home teams of the Austrian football league and is undefeated in the “Hanappi stadium” since December, 2007 (defeat against Salzburg). The home balance in the running season: 4 wins, 2 draws. The forward duet Hoffer/Maierhofer scored together already 14 seasonal goals (in each case 7). Last it did not run for Rapid completely by wish. From the last four games the team of Peter Pacult could win only one match.
Mattersburg is since 6 matches without a victory (1 draw, 5 defeats) and has collected this season already 31 goals against. Also the away statistics promises nothing good: 6 matches, 5 defeats. Merely against the SV Ried it was enough to a draw. The last away victory succeeded in April, 2008.
