Austrian Bundesliga: GW 23 Preview

Soccer ball on grass 
The Austrian Football Bundesliga will resume their 2019/20 season behind closed doors on Tuesday 2 June 2020. Proceedings are delicately poised with two groups (Championship round and Relegation round) of six teams each, which will play a further 10 matches consisting of five home and away games against the respective teams in their group.


Survival is the priority for the Relegation group teams, however, there’s a lot to play for as the top two sides in the Championship round will qualify for the UEFA Champions League and the third and fourth spots will secure UEFA Europa League qualification.

Hopefully, we can cash in on the midweek football being played. Have a punt with our 10/1 treble or add some of our selections to your multiple.
