Champions League: Rapid Vienna vs Sparta Prague preview, team news, prediction and tips
July 19


Rapid Vienna will play hosts to Sparta Prague in the first leg of the Champions League second qualifying round on Tuesday. The kick-off is at 20:30 CEST.


Rapid finished the 2020/21 season in the Austrian Bundesliga in second, behind champions RB Salzburg. Sparta, for their part, also ended their run in the previous campaign in the Czech top flight as runners-up to their city rivals Slavia Prague.

Unlike their forthcoming opponents, the Austrians have already played their first official game in the 2021/22 season as Dietmar Kuhbauer's men destroyed Wiener Viktoria 6-0 in the first round of the Austrian Cup last Friday. The Czech outfit, meanwhile, haven't played a single competitive match since losing to Slavia in their domestic cup semi-final in May.

Team news

Yusuf Demir will not help Rapid this term anymore as Vienna's starlet moved to Barcelona on a season-long loan deal earlier this month. Sparta, in turn, have no significant absentees for this clash.


This encounter is a rather hard to call one as this two-legged tie will be decided in the return game in Prague next week. Nevertheless, the fact that both teams haven't really impressed defensively during the pre-season could potentially turn this match into a quite entertaining affair with goals at both ends at the Allianz Stadion. Hence, let's stick with BTTS in this one.


Both teams to score at 1.645 with 1XBET.
