Bleu Weiss Linz - St.Polten
In the third round of the Erste Liga, Blau Weiss Linz welcomes St.Polten. There has been a lot of changes in both teams so how this will pan out is anyone s guess. Linz should have been promoted but they didn`t. Probably because of the budget as they had to sell some key players. They got some good ones, especially Dwamena. The start is good with wins over Steyr and Dornbirn so they got some confidence.
The wolves from St. Polten were relegated but they don`t seem to have the power for instant promotion. Many of the key players were sold or returned from loans. The team is much weaker now and the results support that. They lost at home against Rapid II and they lost away to Liefering 1:2. The game was never tight though as Liefering dominated threw out the match.
Linz will be a contender again even if they have a weaker team. I don`t see St.Polten in the top places this season. Linz is the favorite today.
