LASK v Liverpool Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Liverpool get their European campaign underway on Thursday evening although this season they are having to settle for the second tier of the continental game in the Europa League, their tournament openerĀ being against LASK Linz.

Kick-off: 5:45 UK Time, Thursday 21st September 2023

 

Liverpool dropped down to the second tier of the European game on account of their disappointing fifth placed finish in the Premier League last season although thus far in domestic competition, Jurgen Klopp’s men have impressed with just two points dropped in their opening five matches. As things stand the Reds sit in third position in the Premier League table after wins over AFC Bournemouth, Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as a 1-1 draw with Chelsea on the opening weekend of the season.

Liverpool appeared in the Europa League each season between 2010 and 2016 and made it into the final of the competition in the latter year where they lost to Sevilla, however Jurgen Klopp’s side are the bookmakers’ favourites to go all the way this time around.

LASK and Liverpool have never before faced each other in competitive matches but the Austrian side have lost in three of their last four encounters with English sides, the exception being a 3-3 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the group stages of the 2020/21 Europa League.

LASK generally have few issues finding the back of the net in front of their own home fans and we envisage them letting the handbrake off when Liverpool come to town this week. We’ll likely see a second string Reds XI here and we don’t envisage them playing a free-flowing game, however should things start to go wrong they can always call upon the big guns and this should be enough to push them over the line.
