Kapfenberg vs Liefering
Kapfenberg is second in the league with 35 points, 2 less than Altach. Only one team will promote so they have to keep the pace of the leaders. Kapfenberg is in a best run in the league and without a loss in the last 11 games, winning 10 of those. Kapfenberg is also the second best home team with 6-1-1 and 16:5 goal difference. The last 5 home games were won and only 2 goals conceded.
Liefering is on 4`th place on the table with 25 points and have 7-4-6 so far. Liefering started great in the league scoring and picking big points but their form is droping. They can`t promote so their motivation from game to game is questionable. They have plenty of talent to stay in the league but the hosts will want this more for sure. Liefering has not won in the last 6 games and took only draws against Parndorf and Hartberg away and Lustenau at home. They lost to the likes of Polten and First Vienna which are well under the quality of Kapfenberg.
Kapfenberg has only longterm keeper Lukse out while others are available.
Liefering has more problems as Felix Adjei(mid.10-0), Luke Gugganig(def. 11-1), Yordy Reyna(mid. 3 -0)and Taxiarhis Fountas (mid. 5-0) are injured while Nils Quaschner(att. 12-3) is suspended. Martin Rasner(mid. 12-0) is questionable.
The form, motivation and absences make Kapfenberg a strong favorite to win today.
