LASK vs Sporting CP Head-to-head (h2h)

These two teams have met just once on the pitch, and it was the reverse fixture of this encounter. Then, Sporting recorded a 2-1 win at their home.

LASK vs Sporting CP Prediction

LASK were on the road the last match-day in the competition, and had taken on the worst of the lot, Rosenborg. However, despite having paired with the weakest team in the cluster, who held a 100% losing record, LASK could just manage a win with a one-goal margin, and could not deliver a clean sheet as well.

On the other hand, Sporting took on tough customers PSV the previous game week in the Europa, and recorded a massive 4-0 victory to keep their momentum going.

The dynamics for this upcoming encounter is as such - Sporting are the current toppers, and have 12 points on the board. In the meantime, LASK are second, and have secured ten points for their efforts.

As a result, a win or draw for Sporting will result in the Portuguese outfit procuring the tickets for knockouts as champions, and only a win for LASK will help them end up as eventual toppers.

Consider that LASK have nothing to lose even if they are held to a draw at home, or even if they lose by a huge margin. However, they have everything to gain with a victory. This alone would motivate them to go after the three points, no matter the result.

As such, LASK will find the back of the net at one point or the other due to relentless attacking, and at the same time, they do have a great potential to concede, owing to them overly concentrating on offense. Likely, BTTS emerges as a very valuable bet.

Going on, once a goal is conceded at either end, be it Sporting or LASK, the dynamics will change. And then, the squad that's trailing will have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. This will further encourage them to adapt a do-or-die attitude.

In the process, the potential for the game to turn into a goal-riot further increases. Therefore, the BTTS along with the O 2.5 options are picked as the top choices for this Europa League encounter.
