The women's slalom is supposed to take place on the Flachau on Tuesday. However, due to the high incidence, the municipality decided not to hold the race. Schladming has taken over and so a World Cup race in the women's slalom will be held for the very first time on Tuesday on the Planai.

For men, the Schladming Night Race is a top event in the World Cup calendar and perhaps the mood among women will now be similarly good. Only twice has there been a significant women's slalom on the Planai, namely at the World Championships in 1982 and 2013. This means that only a few women in the field have ever skied on the Planai.

Mikaela Shiffrin is one of them. She became the first slalom world champion on this track in February 2013 as a 17-year-old. Even eight years later, the American is still one of the favorites in every technical Race and we can imagine using the Bet365 app in the women's slalom in Schladming to make a prediction of a victory for the now 26-year-old.

This winter, however, Petra Vlhova turned out to be stronger and, above all, more constant. The Slovak is the leader in the discipline classification and if everything goes well, she could win the small crystal ball in the slalom on Tuesday. We think it is conceivable to place the tip on another victory for Petra Vlhova in the women's slalom in Schladming.

The favorites in the women's slalom in Schladming

Slovakia Petra Vlhova
Position in the Slalom World Cup 2021/22: 1st
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/22: 2nd

Petra Vlhova can't be disturbed by anything this winter, at least not in the slalom. It is more than impressive what the Slovakian delivers over and over again in the goal run. The 26-year-old won five of six slaloms this winter. Only in Killington she had to admit defeat to Mikaela Shiffrin and finished second.

Five Slalom victories this winter

There are three more slaloms in the World Cup this season. A maximum of 300 points can therefore still be awarded. Petra Vlhova is 240 points ahead of Mikaela Shiffrin. If the US-American wins on the Planai, then Vlhova already takes third place for an early triumph in the discipline classification. If the Slovak stays in front of her opponent again, the matter is over anyway.

It was only last Sunday that Petra Vlhova triumphed again. At the slalom in Kranjska Gora, however, she benefited from the mistakes of the competition. However, the Slovakian is also characterized by the fact that she currently does not allow herself any mistakes in the slalom. So you could be right on Tuesday if you place a bet on Petra Vlhova's victory in the women's slalom in Schladming.

United States Mikaela Shiffrin
Position in the Slalom World Cup 2021/22: 2nd
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/22: 1st

It's not an easy season for Shiffrin. However, this is a complaint on a high level, because the American is still in the lead in the overall World Cup. That's because she scores relatively consistently, but there is still room for improvement in terms of victories this winter. In addition, there is Shiffrin's infection between the holidays, which is why she could not compete in the slalom and giant slalom in Lienz.

Difficult time for Shiffrin

The small crystal ball in the slalom can no longer be reached. There are still three goals left: Olympic gold, winning the discipline world cup in giant slalom and triumph in the overall world cup. There is still a lot to do for the American, who will return on Tuesday to the place where she celebrated her first major success.

The last few weeks have been rather mixed for Mikaela Shiffrin. After the failure in Lienz, it was still enough to finish second in the slalom in Zagreb. The weekend in Kranjska Gora was completely forgotten. In the giant slalom, the American only finished seventh. In the subsequent slalom she was promising in the race, but threaded in the second run and was eliminated.

Switzerland Wendy Holdener
Position in the Slalom World Cup 2021/22: 3rd
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/22: 5th

Maybe a three-time world champion and one-time Olympic champion can get over this if it just doesn't work out in the special discipline with a World Cup victory. Wendy Holdener was on the podium 29 times in slalom, but the place at the top was usually reserved for Petra Vlhova or Mikaela Shiffrin it just works out with the win. Even the competition allows the likeable Swiss woman to do it. On Sunday she was very close in Kranjska Gora. After the first run, Holdener was still in the lead, but small mistakes in the second run cost the decisive hundredths of a second. So in the end it was only enough for second place.

Noch immer kein Weltcupsieg im Slalom

Irgendwann muss es mit dem Sieg doch einfach mal klappen. Selbst die Konkurrenz gönnt es der sympathischen Schweizerin. Am Sonntag war sie in Kranjska Gora ganz dicht dran. Nach dem ersten Durchgang lag Holdener noch in Führung, doch kleine Fehler im zweiten Lauf kosteten die entscheidenden Hundertstel. So reichte es am Ende wieder nur zu Rang zwei.

In this form, however, Wendy Holder is definitely a candidate in Schladming, too, who has to be taken into account. We can imagine that she will at least end up on the podium. Therefore you should keep an eye on the odds on one of the first three places for the Swiss woman in the women's slalom in Schladming.

Women's slalom in Schladming - outsiders

The Austrians are ahead do everything possible to have a successful race on the doorstep. The figurehead is Katharina Liensberger, who was eliminated in the second round in Kranjska Gora on Sunday. However, Katharina Truppe and Katharina Gallhuber can also cause a surprise, and Katharina Huber may also have a respectable success.

Strong Swedes

In addition, the Swedish women can also land far ahead. Sara Hector won the giant slalom in Kranjska Gora on Saturday and is also strong in this discipline. Anna Swenn-Larsson is better in slalom and with third place on Sunday she showed that she is in good shape.

Lena Dürr was already at the start of the 2013 World Championships in Schladming. || | 472 Damals gehörte die Deutsche aber noch nicht zur erweiterten Weltspitze. Heuer ist sie zumindest immer in der Lage, um die Podestplätze zu kämpfen. Das gilt wohl auch für die Schweizerin Michelle Gisin, der man auf der Planai am Dienstag ein gutes Rennen zutrauen muss.

Forecast & betting base trend - who will win the women's slalom in Schladming?

Sechs Slaloms wurden in diesem Winter ausgetragen. Fünfmal stand Petra Vlhova ganz oben auf dem Treppchen und einmal siegte Mikaela Shiffrin. Damit haben wir die beiden größten Favoritinnen schon einmal konkret benannt. Wahrscheinlich macht es auch nur Sinn, mithilfe eines Bet365 Bonus to bet on a victory of one of these two women.

The field behind is very big wide. The strongest competitors are probably Katharina Liensberger, Wendy Holdener, Anna Swenn-Larsson and Lena Dürr. But we assume that a win is only possible if both top favorites fail. We don't expect that, however, and that is why there may only be third place left for the supposed outsiders.

Key-Facts - Women's Slalom in Schladming
  • Mikaela Shiffrin was the 2013 Slalom World Champion on the Planai.
  • Petra Vlhova won five this winter of six slalom races.
  • Wendy Holdener was on the podium 29 times in slalom, but not at the top.

Petra Vlhova dominates the slalom almost at will this winter, but Mikaela Shiffrin returns back to the place where she won her first world title. Maybe that's a good omen. In Kranjska Gora, the American was on course for victory before she caught up. We think that this will not happen to her again and therefore we place a bet on Mikaela Shiffrin's victory in the women's slalom in Schladming.

I grew up in a soccer-crazy household where everyone had something to do with the round leather. So we watched a lot of games together and began to analyze games and individual teams at an early stage. That certainly helped in my active time, which took me up to the top division.

In general, however, I am interested in almost every sport and before I watch a film or a series on TV, there is a handball game, an exotic football match or, in winter, some kind of sport on snow and ice, such as biathlon or alpine skiing .

You don't have to bet on everything you watch. But if you want to bet seriously and not set your stakes too high, then a tip on a live event that you are currently following can increase the appeal. But always remember: Don't bet more than you can afford. Read more
