Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
St Johnstone and LASK go head to head at McDiarmid Park in what is expected to be a very exciting Conference League qualifier. The Saints did well to hold LASK to a draw at Worthersee Stadion, but it has to be noted that the Black and Whites failed to turn their dominance into victory. A man to watch in the away team will be Mamoudou Karamoko, who has been scoring goals for fun in the Conference League qualifiers, while all Gruber, Lawal, and Monschein are likely to miss the match through injuries.
The Saints, on the other hand, are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the second leg. Since Craig Bryson should be the only absentee in the home team, yet another close match is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw.
