FAC vs Wacker Innsbruck Today’s Betting Prediction
Two former Austrian champions face each other. The title winnings of Wacker Innsbruck and its predecessor club FC Tirol may well be remembered by many fans. No one will remember the Bundesliga title of the FAC, because this is already over 100 years back (1917/18). While the FAC currently has no ambitions in the direction of the Bundesliga, Wacker wants Innsbruck after the descent back up – but gives the many young talents the necessary time to develop.
There will be an extremely young team on both sides! The bookmakers offer completely balanced odds between the FAC and Wacker Innsbruck!
The sixth season in series denies the FAC now in Austrian professional football. The club from the 21st district of Vienna has experienced many ups and downs in recent years. Several mergers have found their entry in the history books of the Floridsdorfer.
Since the 2014/15 season, the FAC has again a professional team. For the first four years, the basement of the league was home to the Blues and Whites. In the first 16-league in the previous year, the FAC was able to reach a midfield place in tenth place.
In the shadow of the Viennese big clubs, the FAC plays only a very subordinate role. The financial possibilities are virtually nonexistent. Paying for a player is an impossibility. Either the club fishes in the amateur area or is considered a catch basin for failed players of violets or Hütteldorfer.
In general, new coach Mario Handl has an extremely young team available. Right-back Mirnes Becirovic is the only player in the 24-man FAC squad. 19 of the 24 players are 24 years or younger. The club has no ambitions in the direction of the Bundesliga and accordingly, the young wild can act without pressure.
The first home game won the FAC 2-0 against the GAK. Thus the trend was prolonged, because many goals are not to be seen at the FAC place. In the previous year, there were only 29 goals in 15 matches (goal difference: 14:15). Ten of the 15 home games ended with a under 2.5! On Friday evening between the FAC and Wacker Innsbruck odds of 2.00 are offered for a tip to the under 2.5.
Expected formation of FAC:
➤ Jenciragic – Woodman, Plavotic, Fila, Becirovic – Okungbowa, Yilmaz – Pajaczkowski, Sahanek, Gashi – Prosenik
Last games by FAC:
⚽️ 02.08.2019 – Horn Vs. FAC 2: 2 (2nd league)
⚽️ 28.07.2019 – FAC vs. GAK 2: 0 (2nd league)
⚽️ 20.07.2019 – Wolfurt Vs. FAC 0: 3 (cup)
⚽️ 13.07.2019 – Mannsdorf Vs. FAC 2: 2 (friendly match)
⚽️ 06.07.2019 – Traiskirchen vs. FAC 1: 3 (friendly match)
The sporting failure is also associated with financial problems. After the one-year stint in the Austrian Bundesliga, the former Austrian champion has to bake smaller rolls again. After the descent, the team presented retreaded and a direct return to the Bundesliga would be absolutely presumptuous. The regulars have turned their backs on Wacker. Those responsible even refer to a direct resurgence as “unrealistic”.
The big advantage, however, is that the greens blacks have an outstanding youth work. Similar to the Elf from Floridsdorf, the youth also rules in the holy land of Tyrol. Head coach Thomas Grumser – himself only 39 years old – has a very young team available. The oldie in the squad is winger Alexander Gründler, born in 1993.
After the disappointing start against forward Steyr, there was the first victory of the season in Westderby against FC Dornbirn last weekend. Ironically, a Vorarlberger – in the service of Wacker – made for the only goal of the day! The uncertainty after the recent failures was quite noticeable to the team in the final phase. But with a lot of dedication and passion, the narrow lead over the time could be saved.
With this young team Wacker Innsbruck will have a lot of fun, but the responsible players have to give the players the time to mature. To expect miracles would be absolutely presumptuous. Qualitatively we see the FAC and Wacker Innsbruck on one level, a prediction in the three-way market appears accordingly difficult. There is a lot of talent on both sides – but at this age Konstanz is often a problem.
Expected formation of Wacker Innsbruck:
➤ Wedl – Kofler, Abali, Bacher, Hupfauf – Zalzen, Conte, Galle – Yildirim, Ibrisimovic, Gründler
Last matches of Wacker Innsbruck:
⚽️ 04.08.2019 – Wacker Innsbruck vs. Dornbirn 1: 0 (2nd league)
