LASK hosts Basel in a second game from the third qualifying round of the Champions League. This match is going to be played on Tuesday night at the Linzer Stadion in Linz. Here are our winning soccer predictions today for it.
Surprisingly for most of the people, the first game in Basel ended with a 2-1 for the Austrian side. Because of being the hosts, Basel were regarded as favourites. Especially after eliminating PSV from the competition in the previous round. But it seems that Marcelo Koller’s boys underrestimated their opponent, which led to this result.
Until the 87th minute of the game LASK had a clear two goals advantage. Gernot Trauner opened the score for the visitors, while the Brazilian striker Klauss doubled the lead. Just three minutes before the end Basel kept their chances of progression alive, thanks to the goal which Luca Zuffi scored. But still LASK are a big favourite after the result at the St. Jakob-Park.
In the Swiss Super League Basel are currently second in the standings with 9 points from four games played. They are trailing on one point behind the champion and leader Young Boys.
