LASK Linz hosts Club Brugge KV in the first leg of the Champions League qualification finals. The match will be played on Tuesday, August 20th at Linzer Stadion (Linz)
The debutant of the Champions League, LASK, has made the most favorable impression in the current qualification of the most prestigious club international competition of the Old World, terrifying the regulars of the aforementioned competition with its bold and productive game. For example, despite the expectations of many, LASK has already managed to eliminate Swiss Basel from the tournament, having beaten it with a total score of 5:2 without any problems (2: 1 away + 3:1 at home). It should be noted that Basel showed a great result before a two-part confrontation with LASK, having managed to eliminate formidable Dutch PSV Eindhoven, which was considered one of the main favorites of the Champions League qualification round. I also had a chance to watch LASK’s return match with Basel, where the Black and Whites strongly resembled German Bayern in its flourishing period in some aspects. Namely, the Austrians demonstrated tremendous speed, ingenious combinations near the penalty area of the opponent, serious mutual understanding, + amazing conversion of the created attempts. It's very pleasant to look at this!

As for Brugge, it usually was the home team in its European cup history, regularly playing according to its favorite scheme: victory in the home field + an away draw. And the vice-champion of Belgium did it at the last stage of the qualification in games with Ukrainian Dynamo (1:0 at home, 3:3 away)... Although it should be noted that the Belgians escaped a well-deserved defeat in Kyiv, having managed to equalize the score at the added time.
I think that LASK will positively surprise old Europe with its tough performance once again! It is likely to gain at least a draw.
Prediction for the match: LASK Linz to win with +0.5 handicap
