Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

LASK Linz hope to make it into the group stage of a European competition for the third season in a row while they prepare to play St. Johnstone in the first leg of their Europa Conference League Play-off round on Thursday in the Wörthersee Stadium in Klagenfurt Austria.

The Austrians defeated Vojvodina from Serbia 7-1 overall in the third qualifying round, while The Saints lost a total of 5-3 to Galatasaray in their Europa League qualification and they were relegated to this tournament.


Prediction for this match

After winning the Austrian Cup a season ago, LASK is keen to return to European competition after reaching the Europa League group stage in each of the past two seasons, with their best result in the 2019-20 season when they came in the second round of Manchester United.

In the last qualifying round for this competition, Die Laskler won their first leg in Serbia 1-0, but conceded in the second leg in the 13th.

Dominik Thalhammer and his team is very progressive in their approach to the game, relying on lots of possession and trying to get the ball onto the field quickly.

This approach served them well in the play-off round of the Austrian Bundesliga last season, where they scored 55 goals in just 32 games and finished fourth.

You have only played three games against Scottish teams and are not yet victorious. Their only points came in the group stage of the 1995/96 UEFA Intertoto Cup in a 1-1 draw against Patrick Thistle FC.

The dream of playing in the Europa League came to nothing for St. Johnstone in the third qualifying round against the Turkish giant Galatasaray in what appeared to be a duel.

Draw in the first leg against Istanbul and 1-1 in the second leg in Scotland. Callum Davidson saw his team collapse in the second half and cash in three times in the last half hour.

This team has achieved its best result in Scotland since the 2016-17 season and is hoping to make the most of their second chance this season to play in Europe to advance beyond the qualifying phase of a European tournament for the first time since the UEFA Cup 1999-2000.

Domestically, their games in recent history have traditionally been close and few goals, as they conceded eleven goals in the Premiership last season, but also remained goalless in eleven of their games.

They drew their two Scottish Premiership games this season and moved into the third round of the Scottish League Cup last weekend.

LASK winger Andreas Gruber failed with a cruciate ligament tear, Christoph Monschein has a torn bundle of muscles and Tobias Lawal had knee surgery at the end of June and will not be available for the foreseeable future.

Mamoudou Karamoko started the offense in the second leg of the Conference League qualifier with Vojvodina, scored the equalizer and the winning goal while Alexander Schlager got a clean sheet in the opening leg of this tie.

Peter Michorl scored the only goal in the opening win in the previous round, and scored the only goal in the defeat against SK Sturm Graz in the Austrian Bundesliga last weekend.

Michael O’Halloran scored a late consolation goal in the second leg of the Europa League in St. Johnstone against Galatasaray while Zander Clark has already conceded a goal in two games in the Scottish Premiership this year.

Stevie May led the team in 2020/21 with five goals in the domestic season, but after two games no Saints player has found the net domestically, with their only goal being an own goal by a Motherwell defender Stephen O’Donnell.

Jamie McCart was the hero in their Scottish Cup match last weekend, leveling in extra time to force penalties where Ali McCann scored the decisive penalty to send St. Johnstone into the next round.

LASK Linz possible starting line-up:
Bat; Boller, Wiesinger, Filipovic; Potzmann, Grgic, Michorl, Renner; Goiginger, Karamoko, Raguz

St. Johnstone possible starting line-up:
Clark; Kerr, Gordon, McCart, Brown; McCann, Muller, Craig, Booth; O’Halloran, Hendry

Probability: LASK Linz 2-1 St. Johnstone

The Saints always seem to be able to keep a game close with their solid defense, but LASK’s experience should be enough to win this game and the Austrians are much more deadly in front of goal, especially on their home pitch.
