Note: The odds are correct at the time of writing our preview. Please visit Betfred for the latest odds for this game.

Sturm Graz favourites to win

The visitors are our favourites to win this game. They have started the new season in Austria’s Bundesliga on a high note, winning all the last three games, during which they scored 10 goals. The hosts are equally in great form, having gone unbeaten in the last four matches. However, the biggest undoing for Mura in this fixture could be a poor scoring form, having scored an average of 1.00 goals in the last five games. Sturm Graz averages 3.00 goals in the last five matches.

More than two goals expected

Because Sturm Graz is a team that is currently scoring lots of goals, we think they have what it takes to score lots of goals in this game. While there is no previous meeting between these teams, we expect a high-scoring match given that these teams have been in great scoring form lately.

Both teams will score

Our third pick for this game is goals on both sides of the pitch. The hosts only failed to score once in their last five matches while the visitors netted in all their last five fixtures. While the visitors are our favourites to win this game, we think the hosts will find the net at least once on matchday.

Match Preview: Sturm Graz Kicks Off Quest for Europa League Places

NS Mura has gathered the much-need momentum in Europa League qualification matches having participated in the first three playoff rounds. They will now play against Austria’s side, Sturm Graz, a team that is joining the playoffs in round four. Find out more in our match preview.

NS Mura

NS Mura look to keep their hopes for playing in Europa League alive when they host Sturm Graz in the first leg of round four playoffs. The visitors have played seven play-offs fixtures and have lost only one game so far. Moreover, the hosts hope head coach- Ante Simundza- who has been in charge of the Slovenia team since June 2017, can grab all points from his Austrian counterpart on matchday. With his major strength being the defence, Ante Simundza should beef up his frontline that hasn’t been very effective in the final third before matchday.

Sturm Graz

The visitors come to this game in excellent shape. They have won their last four games, scoring at least three goals in each of them. However, joining the playoffs at this stage means Graz head coach, Christian Ilzer, should get ready to face a tried and tested team in Mura. While Christian Ilzer boasts of the best-attacking line in this fixture, his team’s inability to keep a clean sheet in eight of their last nine matches is a worrying trend. If they can defend well in this fixture, the visitors may very well get a clean sheet victory and it comes with pricey odds on Betfred.
