In the last round, they have lost an away match against Villarreal by (5‑0). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium.

There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 25 of the last 29 have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Rapid Vienna is trying to enter the qualifying zone for the next phase so it is essential to add all three points in this round. The locals know the difficulties they may face, but they are confident in achieving the desired result. Rapid Vienna was defeated away from home by Villarreal by 5-0, in the last Europa League match. The manager should not have major absences for this round, so should take to the field a very competitive team.

Villarreal is in second place in its group, and if the group stage ends today, the team would be guaranteed in the next phase.

In the last match played by the competition, Villarreal achieved a great 5-0 home victory over the opponent of this game. The coach should take to the field the one that has the best at his disposal.

Confirmed Lineup: Andrés Fernández, D. Bonera, M. Layún, Mario Gaspar, Víctor Ruíz, Alfonso Pedraza, S. Cáseres, Santi Cazorla, N. Sansone, Gerard Moreno, Dani Raba.
Coach: Luis García.

Betting suggestion:

Playing at home, Rapid Vienna should take the initiative of the game, as it aims to enter the qualifying zone, so it is important not to waste points alongside its fans. The away team is aware that this will be a difficult duel, but it knows it has total conditions to add three more points. Villarreal is the clear favorite for this match even playing away from home, as it has a more qualified team and should show this throughout the match. Therefore, our bet will be on the away team's visitors until the final whistle.
