PREVIEW: SC WR. NEUSTADT - RAPID VIENNA
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON - Friday, July 27, 2012
Terrence Boyd and the Viennese head south on Saturday looking to continue their electric start to the Bundesliga season, facing a Wiener Neustadt squad still getting its bearings.

USMNT forwarwd Terrence Boyd looks poised to make a second start in his new green and white jersey, after impressing in his debut last weekend. The former Borussia Dortmund product notched two goals and an assist in a 4-0 rout of Wacker Innsbruck.

Coach Peter Schöttel will continue with his offensive formation of Boyd up top with Steffen Hofmann on the right, Deni Alar in the middle, and Christopher Dravan on the left.

The Rapid back-up striker Guido Burgstaller, who entered for Alar last weekend, will miss the trip after being benched for an altercation with a police officer at an post-match party last weekend.

Wiener Neustadt will be looking to make the most of a homestand after falling 2-0 last weekend at SV Mattersburg. The Blue and Whites will have to improve upon their reputation as having had the league's weakest home record last season, winning only twice in eighteen games.

Goalkeeper Jörg Siebenhandl may factor into those plans, honored as the best goalkeeper last season by the Austrian Bundesliga.

Neither squad are reporting injuries.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
