LASK vs Tottenham Hotspur
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 3 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.55 UK
Venue: Linzer Stadium, Linz.
It seems like the clash between LASK Linz and Tottenham Hotspur will decide which side is going to advance to the playoffs alongside Antwerp. Spurs have nine points on their account, while Austrians have six. However, if squad from Linz pulls an upset and beats Mourinho’s team, they will be ahead.
Visitors are entering this clash after playing an exhausting city derby against Chelsea last weekend. Tottenham are still EPL table leaders with 21 points from 10 games. Can they keep performing across two fronts though? Bookies have labelled Spurs as big favorites here, priced at 1.66 to win the match.
LASK vs Tottenham Head-to-head
There were no issues for Tottenham against LASK in London. The first clash took place in late October, and Spurs have won it convincingly 3-0. Goals were scored by Lucas Moura, Son Heung Min and Andrade (own goal).
LASK faced English teams three times total so far and lost every single encounter with total goal difference of 1-10.
Tottenham have five meetings against Austrian clubs, having won four while one match ended without winner.
LASK vs Tottenham Prediction
Squad from Linz was a decent opponent to Salzburg in previous Bundesliga season, all until the outbreak when games were paused. They also did well on in Europa League, advancing to playoffs and getting thrashed by Manchester United.
Results on the domestic scene have been solid so far – 20 points from nine games, 2nd place on the table and +13 goal difference. Last week’s home loss to Antwerp was truly surprising and it ruined so many plans for coach Dominik Thalhammer.
Interestingly, Tottenham also lost to the Belgium side. They were victorious in other three games against Ludogorets (2x) and LASK.
We are expecting to see an open match in Austria with a lot of goals. Mourinho’s side would be happy with a draw here as well. And almost certain he will rest at least three or four standard roster members.
