Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Top position in Group D will be at stake when LASK and Sporting CP face each other at Linzer Stadion on Thursday evening. LASK booked their place in the Europa League knockout stages thanks to a 2-1 win at Rosenborg, and they are now eyeing their third consecutive win of the process. The Austrian side need to pick up all three points from their last group game if they are to clinch top position in Group D, meaning that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Sporting CP.
The Lions rolled over PSV 4-0 in Lisbon in their last group match, but this time out, we are going to put our money on LASK as they are enjoying yet another season to remember. A man to watch in the home team will be Brazil international Klauss, who scored a brace in a 4-1 win over PSV last month.
