Rapid Wien to qualify is 19/20.
Rapid Wien to win in 90 minutes is 7/4.
Both teams to score is 1/1.
There was never likely to be very much to separate these two sides, and that was very much the case in last Thursday’s first encounter in Vienna.
It ended goalless at Allianz Stadion meaning, as the two reconvene at Stadion Gdańsk, it’s winner takes all.
Rapid Wien came into this tie as slight favourites, although that status will have been eroded a bit by their failure to win at home.
Die Grün-Weißen have featured in nine UEFA group stages since 2009, last failing in qualifying 2014.
Having reached the Europa Conference League knockout stages just last season, it would be a massive failure should Ferdinand Feldhofer’s side crash out this early in qualifying.
Lechia Gdańsk meantime have already made history in European competition this season.
The Polish club demolished Akademija Pandev in the previous round, thereby winning a UEFA tie for the first time ever.
The White-Greens had lost their two previous attempts, beaten by Juventus in 1983 and Brøndby in 2019.
So, it would be a major achievement if Lechia Gdańsk could dump out such seasoned veterans as Rapid Vienna.
Whoever does progress will, in all likelihood, take on Aris Limassol in the Europa Conference League third qualifying round; they’re currently 2-0 up on Neftçi Bakı.
