LASK vs Austria Vienna
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: TGW Arena (Pasching).
Austria Vienna made a huge step towards securing a place in the Europa League qualifications thanks to back-to-back wins over Sturm Graz and Wolfsberger in past two rounds. Die Veilchen climbed up to fourth place in the league ladder and are three points above fifth-placed Sturm Graz coming into the last Matchday and the clash against second-placed LASK.
A win here could even see the visitors overtake Wolfsberger in third place and earn a spot in the group stage of the Europa League. LASK, on the other side, have already secured the second-place finish after one of the best campaigns in their history. The hosts will thus feature the Champions League qualifications for the first time ever this summer.
Nevertheless, Austria Vienna will still face a very tough task looking for a win here as they are going up against a formidable opposition who are certainly looking to finish the season on a high and pick up a three-pointer in the last game of the campaign in front of the home crowd.
LASK vs Austria Vienna: Head-to-head
Austria Vienna were the more successful outfit in the history of this match-up, but LASK were the dominant force in the past couple of years.
Die Schwarz-Weisen won four and drew one of past five clashes against Austria Vienna having notched two or more goals in each of last three head to head affairs along the way.
Teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they last met each other a month ago at Generali Arena.
LASK vs Austria Vienna: Prediction
LASK knew how to keep things tight at the back lately. They kept two clean sheets in past three rounds, the narrow 2-1 loss away at champions Salzburg being the only exception in the process. The hosts also won three of last four league matches and they rarely dropped points in front of the home fans throughout the season.
Die Schwarz-Weisen won six and drew five of eleven home ties in the regular season conceding only 10 goals along the way. Even though this match has a bigger importance for the visitors, the home win is more than realistic option taking look at both head to head record and form. You can alternatively try with the Under 3.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.44.
