Soccer – Europa League – Qualification
Rapid Wien play host to Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League play-offs, first leg on Thursday evening. The Austrians eliminated Anorthosis of Cyprus in the third qualifying round, and they are seen to win the upcoming double-header as well.
Rapid have won both of their home games in Europe so far this season, and have four wins in five home games so far this term. Most impressive from a Rapid point of view has been their offensive style of play at Allianz Stadion, having racked up 14 goals across those five matches and provided they show that same clinical edge going forward here, the Austrian side should prevail in this first leg.
