Europa League Besiktas vs LASK 9/08/2018

Europa League Besiktas vs LASK Prediction

The Besiktas team failed several of the goals of the last season that’s why they are playing in the Europa League qualifying rounds. In the previous round, which marked their official debut in the new season, the Turks had no problem removing the Icelanders from the B36, winning 2-0 in the first leg and 6-0 at home in the tie.

LASK Linz was in 4th place in the last edition of the Austrian League and has already made an excellent replica in their debut in European competitions, by scoring the Lillestrom Norwegians in the previous round, winning 4-0 at home in the first leg and repeating the 2-1 triumph in Norway.

Meanwhile, the official domestic season had already started on 20 June, beating Hertha, a Landesliga side, 3-0 in the Austrian Cup.
In the championship, they lost 3-1 at home to champion Salzburg and again lost points in the welcome to St. Polten (0-0) on the second and last day.

I believe in a game played in a medium to low, for several reasons. Besiktas knows they play at home and will want to win the game, of course, preferably by a comfortable margin to settle the tie already.

However, the Turkish championship begins next Sunday for them and also know that the LASK already comes with another competitive pace, having already held 5 official matches in 2018/19.

Despite the superiority of the Turks, I do not see them wanting to impress an overly offensive style of play in order to give way for the Austrians to take advantage and, suffering at home, things can get complicated on the undercard.

I believe in a Besiktas triumph, but in a game without so many chances of goal like that and that is the way my bet is, because the odds offered to the Turkish team are not appealing to me.

Best Bet of the Day: Under 3.5 goals
