Sturm Graz vs Slovan Bratislava: Match Preview and Prediction

Sturm Graz vs Slovan Bratislava: Slovan Bratislava and Sturm Graz will play their Conference League knockout first leg at Merkur Arena. After their midseason winter break, Slovan Bratislava defeated Zilina 4-0 to maintain their lead in the Slovakian Nike Liga after placing second in Conference League Group A behind Lille.

Given how successful they have been lately—losing just once in their last three months (13 competitive matches) in all competitions—and the fact that they are now on a six-game winning streak when traveling, the visitors should also feel extremely encouraged.

Sturm Graz, their opponents, defeated Rakow by a slim margin to secure third place in Group D of the Europa League and subsequently qualify for the UECL. After their break, Die Schwoazn went back to back wins, the least of which was a 1-1 tie against Salzburg, their rivals for the Austrian Bundesliga crown.

Nevertheless, it is clear that the hosts struggle at home because they have only triumphed in three of their last six competitive home games while losing the other two. Moreover, they have lost their last three encounters in Europe.

Sturm Graz vs Slovan Bratislava: Betting Analysis

Although this was their first competitive match, Sturm Graz had defeated them 5-1 in a 2012 friendly. Recent performances, including a competitive six-game unbeaten streak on the road, give Slovan Bratislava an advantage over Sturm Graz, who have had some dismal home performances.

The odds of 1.76 for both teams to score are appealing for the second tip. Considering that in their last two games, the hosts have scored three goals. However, in their last six competitive away games, the visitors have scored two goals or more in every one of those games.
