Draw at the break
We are tipping draw at the break as our first prediction for this game. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, we don’t expect to see a lot of goals in the second leg, which promises to be even tenser. A deadlocked first half between St Johnstone and LASK should end with a draw.
Both teams to score: No
We also don't expect goals on both sides in the second leg despite a 1-1 outcome in the first leg. With both sides fighting for progression to the next round of Europa Conference League qualifiers, this game promises less entertainment. A defensive approach from both ends is why our second pick is plausible. Moreover, a review of the previous ten games shows a trend of draws with the hosts having six and the visitors, four draws in the last ten games.
Few goals at full-time
Another plausible outcome in this match is fewer than three goals at full-time. These teams seem to love draws based on recent stats and we don’t expect an entertaining game either. A cautious approach from both sides in the second leg should yield a few goals at full-time.
Game Preview: Who will break the Deadlock in the Second Leg?
A deadlocked match in the first leg ended with both sides sharing the spoils in a match that ended 1-1. We preview these teams before the second leg.
Scottish side fell to a 1-0 in the first half away from home. However, they were lucky to equalize through a penalty on the hour-mark and held onto a 1-1 draw. They come to the second fixture hoping to turn things around with home advantage. The host had two players namely Thomas Goiginger and Lukas Grgic cautioned in the first leg and should be cautious not to put their chances on the line. For that, we expect head coach, Callum Davidson to make a few changes in his squad, and especially at the back.
LASK travels to McDiarmid Park in Perth Scotland to face St Johnstone in the second leg of round four, Europa Conference League qualifiers. Despite going ahead before the break in the first leg, the visitors could not hold onto their lead. They conceded a penalty to St Johnstone in a match that had no more goals after the hour-mark spot-kick. Defender, Liam Gordon was shown a yellow card and may not feature for the visitors in the second leg. For head coach, Dominik Thalhammer, conceding a penalty in the first leg was unfortunate but an improved squad should get the much-needed points in the second leg.
