Rapid Vienna Form


Rapid Vienna missed out on a spot in the UEFA Champions League after losing 3-2 on aggregate to Sparta Prague last week.

Having won 2-1 at home in the first leg, Dietmar Kuhbauer's side lost 2-0 in Prague to exit the Champions League qualifiers and drop into Europa League qualifying.

The defeat to Sparta Prague forms part of a three-game winless run for Rapid Vienna.

Last year's Austria Bundesliga runners-up have started the new league season with a 2-0 defeat at home to Hartberg and a 1-1 draw at LASK at the weekend.

Defender Maximilian Hofmann is doubtful after missing the weekend draw with LASK through injury.

Defender Dalibor Velimirovic remains on long-term injury list, as do forwards Koya Kitagawa and Philipp Schobesberger.

Midfielder Robert Ljubicic was suspended against LASK in the Bundesliga, but will be available to face Anorthosis.

Anorthosis Form


Anorthosis begin their bid for a place in the Europa League main draw having earned a spot in qualifying as Cypriot Cup winners last season.

In their opening game of the new season, Anorthosis lost the Super Cup on penalties to Omonia. The sides ended 1-1 with Omonia winning a nervy shootout 3-2.

Anorthosis finished last season in fourth place in the Cypriot First Division.
