Austria Vienna II - Austria Lustenau
In the third round of the Erste Liga, Austria Vienna II is welcoming Austria Lustenau. In the battle of the two Austrias, the visitors are overwhelming favorites. The odds were much higher just a few days ago but now they represent the true state of things. Lustenau has invested a lot of money in the team and brought in players from Liefering, Innsbruck, Kapfenberg, Ried, Aalen, Nancy. They finished third in the previous season but only first place will do this time around. They have really good options in the attack which was already shown with 4 scored in 2 matches.
The youth Austria team doesn`t get much help from the first team and they got only players from the U18. The team will develop but I can`t say there is such quality there like in, for instance, Liefering. They finished 11`th last season and they will finish somewhere similar again. The team is having problems in the defensive part early on as they conceded a whopping 5 goals from the lowly Horn at home. Amstetten also scored 3 in a 3:2 win. Austria is on the bottom of the table after two rounds and they will stay there for a while longer, I presume.
