Rapid Wien vs Arsenal Prediction and Betting Preview 22 Oct 2020

Here's our Rapid Vienna vs Arsenal Prediction analysis: Rapid Wien vs Arsenal PredictionArsenal will have to embark on a long trip to faraway Austria to take on Rapid Wien in their opening Europa League fixture at the Allianz Stadion on Thursday evening.
Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - Group Stage
Kick-off:
Venue: Allianz Stadion (Vienna)
One of the best teams in the Austrian Bundesliga, Rapid Wien pushed really hard for the league title last season, but were eventually beaten to the crown by RB Salzburg. Truly impressive that term, they will be gutted to have missed out on league success.

Of course, another season is underway and the Green-Whites have another opportunity to bring that highly-coveted piece of silverware to the city of Vienna. For now, they will switch focus to Europe where they have English side Arsenal to contend in their first match.

It is fair to say Rapid Wien must have enjoyed how the 2019/20 Bundesliga campaign panned out, finishing second on the standings. Though they were miles away from table-toppers RB Salzburg, the Green-Whites will be delighted to have, at least, clinched continental qualification.

In sensational form, Wien grabbed a decent 38 points from 32 games to book a Champions League third-qualifying round ticket. Taking on Belgian side Gent at this stage, they were narrowly defeated 2-1 and sent crashing to the Europa League.

Destined to ply their trade in Europe’s second-tier competition, Wien must now give their all to enjoy a decent journey here. Their league form has been impressive, winning three of the opening four games to get off to a flying start.

Dietmar’s charges are unlikely to stand any chances against Arsenal here, and will instead focus on upcoming games with smaller sides like Dundalk and Molde. That said, there is no harm in these ones taking their chances versus the Gunners. Who knows? They might just pull an upset!

Meanwhile, Arsenal have begun their Premier League campaign in decent form, picking up nine points from an available fifteen. They were on the wrong end of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Man City last time out, despite putting in maximum effort to draw a result.

Not what they would have wanted, but the Gunners will now be travelling to Austria with a painful defeat in the bag. As they couldn’t secure continental qualification by virtue of league position last season, Arterta’s men went through the back-door.

Defeating Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Arsenal successfully picked up a ticket to the Europa League, where they have been handed a pretty straightforward group. Rapid Wien their strongest opposition – that tells you a lot about the kind of easy group they were thrown in.

Injured or Suspended Players

Rapid Wien: Tamas Szanto, Philipp Schobesberger, Christopher Dibon and Dalibor Velimirovic.

Arsenal: Gabriel Martinelli, Pablo Mari, Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi.

Rapid Vienna vs Arsenal Predictions

Rapid Wien are not regulars on the European scene, and very much inexperienced at this footballing stage. They will likely fold under pressure against Arteta’s goal-hungry forwards. Count on the visitors to stroll to victory in this encounter.
