Wacker Innsbruck - Lafnitz
It is the third round of the Erste Liga and Wacker Innsbruck welcomes Lafnitz. Innsbruck has 4 points after two rounds while Lafnitz has 3 points and there is little separating the two. Yet, we see great favoritism for the home side. Wacker has had big problems with Lafnitz lately and they have 1-1-2. And the initial two games haven`t been picture-perfect. The draw with Austria II shows that there is work to be done.
Lafnitz started with a convincing 4:2 away win against Juniors but they played badly with Lustenau. Lustenau won with 4:1 but Lafnitz had little luck in that one. If they had scored for 2:2 and didn`t get the red card, who knows how the game would have ended. Lafnitz often struggles at home but shows much better performances on the travels. They actually had 10 away wins last season which was second best. Lafnitz strenghtened a bit and got players from Hartberg, LASK, and Rapid. They could be better than 5`th place last season.
I just can`t see why Wacker is such a favorite.
