St. Johnstone vs LASK
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: 26 August, 2021 (Thursday)
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park.

St. Johnstone welcome LASK to their headquarters at McDiarmid Park on Thursday evening to fulfil the second-leg fixture in the qualifying stages of the UEFA Europa Conference League.

Both teams will be having an eye to be one of the teams to take part in this new competition and the stakes will be high.

The Saints will be hoping to bounce back here after suffering a 0-1 defeat in the Scottish Premiership at the hands of Dundee United in their last game at home.

St. Johnstone were in control of the game for large portions, but they failed to convert their chances into really good scoring opportunities.

The home side created multiple chances from which they were able to get 15 shots at goal, but they managed just 2 on target. This is a slight indicator that the Scottish outfit are currently not firing on all cylinders which is a concern of it’s own significance.

On the other side of the pitch, their opponents LASK are not a stranger to European competitions at all and they will be knowing how it feels to play under conditions and certain situations when the heat is on.

Coming into this fixture, the away side drew 1-1 with TSV Hartberg in their most recent Austrian Bundesliga match.

LASK were able to get 13 shots on goal, 6 of which were on target in that game. Florian Flecker managed to get a point for the Black-Whites as he got on the score sheet in the 78th minute after TSV Hartberg’s Matija Horvat gave his side the lead in the 69th minute.

However, even the away side are showing similar concerns to St. Johnstone as they are unable to get their shots on target which may open up exit doors for the away side if they do not convert their chances into goals which will ultimately decide who progresses in the main draw of the competition.

Both these sides have met just once last week as it was an evenly matched draw with a 1-1 score line.

St. Johnstone vs LASK Prediction

This fixture will be a tight affair but LASK are expected to cross the finishing line and book their place in the competition. The bookies are in favour of the Austrian side, but on the other hand, we see really good value in Result/Both teams to score in favour of LASK at 4.75 odds.

At the same time, both these teams have found the net in the first leg and with the demand and pressure of the game expected to reach to such high levels, we back that there will be more than 2.5 goals in this fixture.
