LASK vs PSV Eindhoven
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Linzer Stadion (Linz).
With PSV and Sporting in the same mix, it was always going to be tough for the Austrians to make it to the next round. And though they began on the right note, with a win against minnows, Rosenborg, they later had to regress back to the mean with a defeat against the Portuguese outfit in the lot.
As of now, Valerien Ismael’s men are placed third in the table, with four points from their three games. However, despite this disadvantageous position, they are taking on group-leaders, PSV, with the aid of home advantage. Moreover, the Dutch are currently going through a rough patch.
If the hosts are able to exploit this scenario, they just might find themselves in the roster for the Round of 16.

LASK vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction
The Peasants are going through a rare series of unimpressive games, and it certainly has taken a toll on them. They have lost the top-most spot in the Eredivisie to Ajax, and are at present trailing eight points behind them. This, to be frank, is something unheard of in the top division of the Netherlands for quite some time.
Going on, they are winless in their preceding four match-ups, and in their last two on the road. They failed to score in three of these four clashes while conceding twice or more in three of these four as well. Importantly, they were even denied the chance to post three points on the board, as they hosted Ismael’s men the last day in the Europa.
On the other hand, their counterparts won their last six battles and won five of these. Going on, they remained unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games and scored two or more goals in seven of their former ten matches.
At home, they are unbeaten in their previous five appearances and was so in 11 of their prior 14. They had also scored a total of 14 goals from their prior four home ties.
Consequentially, current form plus home advantage dictates a good outcome for the home team.
Be that as it may, the desperation of Eindhoven, plus their competitive spirit coupled with the fact that they are far superior in talent and surroundings, to the Austrians, stipulate the hosts to fail to keep their nets clean.
