On a match counting towards the 1st leg of the Europa League’s play-offs.

Their goal ratio counted with 68 goals scored and 43 goals conceded, which results on an average of 3.1 goals per match.
The team presented a homogenous record during the league, getting practically the same amount of points as visitors or as hosts.
On this start of the season, Rapid Wien has already played 7 official matches, recording 2 victories, 2 draws and 2 losses. On the previous round, they have eliminated Slovan Bratislava, losing away from home (2-1) and winning at home (4-0).

Rapid Wien vs Steaua Bucharest – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe there is a lot of value in exploring the side of Rapid Wien, especially by what they’ve been making in front of their own fans.
Their home advantage is quite strong, something that can be essential on the outcome of this tie, recording only 3 losses on the last 18 official matches they’ve played at their own stadium, with 2 of them being against Salzburg (chronical Austrian champions).
Steaua is a good team, but I don’t believe they will have enough arguments to bring an advantage from Austria, expecting that the double chance in favour of Rapid will be a winner.
Alongside with that, I also see the existence of 2 goals on the encounter, knowing that the “Over 1.5 Goals” line was surpassed in 15 of the last 17 matches played by the hosts,
and in 7 of the 9 matches that the Romanians have already played this season.
