Lask Linz - PSV
In the 4`th round of the Europa League, Lask Linz hosts PSV. PSV is the leader with 7 points while Lask is third with 4 points. The hosts really need to go for a win today as it is expected that Sporting will be too strong for Rosenborg which has no points. Lask is a new powerhouse in the superb Austrian league this season. Along with Wolfsberger and Salzburg, they are really making their people proud. They play simple football but no ball is lost and they play at a high pace. They are super strong at home where they are 3 for 3 in the Europa League. They already showed that they have what it takes to eliminate Basel while they were pretty unlucky with Sporting away. They won over Besiktas and took a point with PSV in the last round. They were dominated but they held on to a valuable point.
At home, I expect that Lask will force the issue.
PSV is in a big crisis lately and the injuries to the key players didn`t help. They are without the top scorer Malen today but also without a couple more regulars. They are far behind Ajax in the league and the season looks lost. So, maybe they will put more into the Europa League. I still don`t trust them as they are in a really bad run lately losing by high numbers.
I will go with Lask today.
