THE TEAM NEWS

LASK

  • LASk’s torrid run continued with a 3-1 defeat to leaders Salzburg and the one-time leaders have now picked up just one point from the 12 on offer since the league returned.
  • After topping the regular season standings and then suffering a points deduction during the enforced break, they are now in danger of missing out on a European place if their slump continues.
  • Boss Valerien Ismael will see this home match against Championship Round bottom-side Sturm Graz as the perfect opportunity to get back on the winning trail.

STURM GRAZ

  • A late Kiril Despodov brace gave Sturm Graz a 1-2 victory at Hartbeg on Sunday and ended their four-game losing streak and the mood in the camp has improved considerably as a result.
  • Despite them not having beaten LASK in their last four meetings in all competitions, they will feel their opponents are there for the taking given recent form so they will likely adopt a positive approach.
  • Defensive pair Spendlhofer and Donkor are both available again following their suspensions but boss Nestor El Maestro may be tempted to adopt a largely unchanged line-up following their first victory since the season restarted.

THE PREDICTION

An intriguing contest here between an increasingly demoralised LASK outfit and a Sturm Graz side who have a spring in their step following a late victory against Hartberg over the weekend. This fixture had a different look to it prior to the enforced break but much has changed since then and the away side could be worth backing here in the draw no bet market.
