LASK was founded long ago, and they celebrate the 115th anniversary this season. In such an extended period, the Blacks and Whites reached the national championship only once - in 1965. At that time, they also won the only Austrian Cup. After that, the results went down, but they did get some awards, winning bronze medals last season. This success let them play in the UEL qualification. They beat Zrinjski - 2:1 and 1:1 and reached the tournament's group stage. LASK is still third in the national championship, five points behind the leader.
Liverpool is one of the strongest teams in Europe, but last season, they did not go well from the beginning. The team improved the situation in the spring, but it was too late. Therefore, they failed to rise above the fifth place in the standings. Now, the Reds are the favorites for the Europa League. We wonder what motivates them to participate in the tournament. The Merseysiders are currently in great form. In the five EPL rounds, they only missed a 1:1 draw with Chelsea and won their other four matches by a combined score of 11:3. Such a productive debut puts Liverpool in third place in the Premier League.
Expert Betting Tips
LASK is in good shape for their Europa League debut. This is especially true at home, where they have not lost in over four months. Note that all their positive results have come against Tyrol, Austria, and Zrinjski. Now Liverpool - a team of a slightly different caliber - are coming to the Raiffeisen Arena. Jurgen Klopp will obviously rotate his squad, but even without the key players, the Reds have people who can make a difference.
LASK and Liverpool love to play open and spectacular football. The Blacks and Whites have scored 13 goals in their last five home matches (2.60 per game). They are unlikely to reach that against Liverpool, but they can shoot at least once. In fact, the English put a show in almost every game: in their last 11 meetings, the Reds scored 53 goals (4.82 per game).
