Sturm Graz vs Slovan Bratislava Prediction and Betting Tips | February 15th 2024

The action resumes in the UEFA Europa Conference League as Sturm Graz and Slovan Bratislava square off at Merkur Arena on Thursday.

The Slovakian outfit head into the midweek clash unbeaten in their last nine away matches across all competitions and will look to extend this impressive run.

Sturm Graz failed to move to the top of the Austrian Bundesliga table as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Salzburg at the Red Bull Arena last Friday.

This was Die Schwoazn’s second competitive game since the turn of the year after claiming a comfortable 2-0 victory over Austria Wien in the OFB Cup on February 2.

Sturm Graz now head to the Conference League playoff after crashing out of the Europa League courtesy of a third-place finish in Group D.

Slovan Bratislava, on the other hand, picked up three wins and lost two of their six Conference League matches to collect 10 points and finish second in Group A.

After a solid run of results in the mid-season break, Vladimir Weiss’ men returned to competitive action last Friday with a resounding 4-0 victory over Zilina in the Slovakian top flight.

Slovan Bratislava currently sit top of the Superliga standings, with a healthy 10-point cushion over second-placed Zilina.
