Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Metz in the Ligue 1 round 7, Toulouse will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on LASK in the Europa League. Les Pitchouns obviously produce much better showings at home than on the travels and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win Thursday’s encounter. Keep in mind, though, that defender Logan Costa is banned for the match.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Liverpool in their opener, but given their poor display in a 2-1 defeat at Wolfsberger, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Thomas Goiginger is pushing for a start after finding the net as a substitute against Wolfsberger, while all Anselm, Pintor, Toui, and Wiesinger should miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Team (LASK):
Founded back in 1908, LASK are an Austrian football club that compete in the Bundesliga. Die Laskler play home games at Waldstadion in Pashing. The stadium with the capacity of 7,870 was opened in 1990 and nowadays is known under the name of Raiffeisen Arena. The club, though, welcome their rivals at the 14,000 capacity Linzer Stadion in European competitions.
Back in the 1964/65 season LASK clinched their first and only Austrian Bundesliga trophy, with the team finishing the campaign one point clear of second-placed Rapid Wien. LASK became the first club outside Vienna to win the domestic title and, to make things even better for the fans, die Laskler clinched the domestic cup the same year.
LASK’s home colours are white and violet, whilst they wear black and white when playing on the travels. In the 2018/2029 season LASK booked their place in the Europa League group stages.
