Sporting CP vs LASK Linz
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade.
The Lions are from the Portuguese top flight – considered to be the very best domestic competition in Europe after the top five leagues, and they are also one of the titans in the Primeira Liga.
They are also in great form in the past several match-days, and especially so at home. Meanwhile, their counterparts have been struggling to perform on the road.
On top of that, the Portuguese contingent also have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at home, and have scored two or more goals in all such games.
As such, Sporting are expected to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday.
However, they had lost the latest h2h clash 3-0 on the road, and it was just eight months back. Furthermore, this is practically a final – with a ticket to the Europa League on the line. It’s only natural to anticipate the guests to score at least once.
Sporting CP vs LASK: Head-to-head (h2h)

Sporting CP vs LASK Prediction
Ruben Amorim’s men are from the superior league, have the home advantage, have a 100% winning record at home in h2h meetings, have scored two or more goals in 100% of h2h encounters at home so far, and are in unbelievable form lately (especially at home).
Meanwhile, their counterparts were on a seven-match losing run just two months back, and are struggling to perform on the road in the last several game weeks.
As such, expect Sporting to have the upper hand this Thursday.
However, Dominik Thalhammer’s men had defeated this opponent with a 3-0 scoreline the last time these two met, and they are just a game away from securing qualification to the Europa League.
We can count on them to give their absolute best this match-day. At least once will they find the back of the net.
