On Thursday evening, LASK host Tottenham in Group J in the Europa League, as the visitors look to book their spot in the last-32 of the competition.
This clash is a vital one for the home team, as they kick-off this clash third-place in the group, two points behind the visitors who lead the group and second place Royal Antwerp. Even a win in this clash may not prove to be enough for the home team to qualify for the knockout stages, although a win would take it until the gameweek six. A defeat could see the Austrian team eliminated from the competition.
Dominik Thalhammer’s team are in the thick of the race for the Austrian Bundesliga title, as the home team has now won six of their previous eight games in all competitions. Their only defeat in that recent good run of form came in a 2-0 home loss against Royal Antwerp in their last Europa League outing.
LASK have a decent recent record in the Europa League, winning four of their last six games in the competition. The games they have failed to win have finished in defeats in Group J.
The visitors are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions. The north London’s team’s recent form has been enough to take them to the top of the Premier League table and the top of Group J too.
A big factor in Spurs recent good run has been the visitor’s ability to keep clean sheets, as the team from north London have not conceded in their previous four competitive matches.
When it comes to this competition, Tottenham have been relatively comfortable in Group J, winning three of their four matches in the group, while scoring at least three goals in all three of the victories. Their only slip-up in the competition was in gameweek two, as they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Royal Antwerp. The defeat is Tottenham’s only loss in the Europa League in eight games, dating back to 2017.
Spurs recent away record in the Europa League is a decent one, as the visitors have won three of their last four matches on their travels in European football’s secondary competition.
Their recent matches in the Europa League have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight matches.
We believe that Tottenham will record a victory in this clash to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition. The other bet we are recommending is under 2.5 goals scored, as we believe it may be a slightly tight encounter.
Verdict: We are predicting an away win at odds of 13/20 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 11/8. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
