LASK Linz hosts Basel in the second leg of the Champions League qualification semifinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, August 13th at Linzer Stadion (Linz)
It will be ridiculous if LASK manages to get into the group stage of the prestigious UEFA Champions League literally from the first attempt. The tournament, which Red Bull Salzburg, the main flagship of Austrian football, dreamed of from year to year and finally got there directly due to the increased rating of its country in the current Euro season (it won gold medals). But I would not relax at the place of LASK yet, as it had already happened with the Black-Whites at the final stage of the last year’s UEFA Europa League qualification in a seemingly successful confrontation with Turkish Besiktas. LASK was ahead with a 2:0 score to the last minute of a home game after an away 0:1 defeat But then it conceded a fatal goal and relegated from the European competitions in a very disappointing way. LASK players could not keep a clean sheet even in the first duel in Switzerland, having bewildered after Basel came to sense and began to attack in full sail, trying to rehabilitate in front of its fans. As a result, the men of Valerien Ismael got off cheap, having conceded only one goal (a 2:1 victory)!

As for the visitors, they have always been an unpredictable team that could easily beat anyone and lose to any opponent then... The previous matches of the current Champions League qualification with the eminent Dutch PSV Eindhoven showed it perfectly. Basel celebrated an important victory with a common a total of 4: 3 (2:3 away, 2:1 at home).
I believe that Basel has not said its last word in the current Champions League yet, and it must aggravate the goalkeeper of LASK at least once!
Prediction for the match: Basel to score over 1.0 goal
