Champions League / Club Brugge vs LASK Linz – if we judge by result of the first match it seems there will be no uncertainty in this one. Club Brugge won LASK away by 1-0 and that is great advantage for the rematch at home where the Belgian team traditionally plays much better than away but LASK shouldn’t be totally written off in advance. The Austrian team won on Saturday in the Austrian Bundesliga, while Club Brugge postponed its league match.
Game Club Brugge vs LASK Linz begins 28.08.2019 at 21:00 CET
Club Brugge is very close to again qualify for the group phase of the Champions League and the only thing they need to do is to verify victory from the 1st leg. The Belgians were more afraid from Dynamo Kyiv in the third qualifying round and they defeated them in the 1st leg also by 1-0 but at home. The rematch was a great match in which they were losing three times but the result read at the end 3-3, which was enough to pass the round. Tau was sent off in Kyiv and couldn’t play in Linz so Openda replaced him, while Mitrovic played stopper instead of Mechele. The last reinforcement is left back Ricca who might be a starter now.
Probable lineups Club Brugge: Mignolet – Clinton Mata, Mitrovic, Deli, Ricca – Rits, Vormer, Vanaken – Dennis, Okereke, Openda
It seems that LASK will not be a great surprise of these qualifications and won’t reach the group phase of the Champions League for the first time in the club history. After they eliminated Based with two victories they didn’t have enough strength to do something more against Club Brugge at home. They received an early goal and couldn’t annul by the end of match. The team was the same that faced Basel when they won 3-1, however, they didn’t repeat the performance. It is interesting that LASK didn’t postpone the league match despite it was difficult away game with Rapid. They won 1-2 thanks to Raguz who scored deep in the injury time. Since he scored both goals for LASK he might be a starter now.
Probable lineups LASK Linz: A. Schlager – Wiesinger, Trauner, Pogatetz – Ranftl, Michori, Holland, Renner – Goiginger, Tetteh, Raguz
Betting Pick: Club Brugge vs LASK Linz
Winning the first match made the job for Club Brugge much easier and we expect that team dominates at home and confirm place for itself in the group phase with the new victory since LASK has not strength to surprise again.
Pick: Club Brugge wins
Odds: 1.73 at betway (down to 1.63 can be played)
