Sturm Graz vs LASK Linz: Top Free Betting Tips

Sturm Graz will be determined to repeat their winning form in the Austrian Bundesliga against LASK Linz at Merker Arena on Saturday, 5 August. The Black-Whites come into this game after dropping two points against Rapid Vienna in the league.

Match Result Prediction: Sturm Graz to Win

Sturm Graz has won both of the recent two fixtures in the OFB Cup and Austrian Bundesliga. The Blackies have also won three of the previous five fixtures in the first division. On the other hand, LASK Linz has registered only one victory in the previous five league outings, along with two defeats and two draws. The Blackies have also defeated LASK Linz in three of the last five H2H meetings. Therefore, we set Sturm Graz as our favourite to take the lead in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Sturms Graz has thrashed ten goals in the previous two games in OFB Cup and Austrian Bundesliga. The Blackies have also rattled the net 12 times in the last five league outings. On the other hand, LASK Linz has managed an average of one goal per game in the same number of fixtures. We have witnessed only two of the previous five H2Hs of these teams with Over 2.5 Goals at Merkur Arena. However, given the current state of affairs, we expect to see a change of trend in this encounter.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Sturm Graz

Sturm Graz has found the back of the net at least twice in each of the previous three league outings at Merkur Arena, collecting nine goals. The Blackies have allowed only three goals at the back in that course. On the other hand, LASK Linz has been unable to score more than once in any of the last five road fixtures in the Austrian Bundesliga. In the H2Hs, Sturm Graz succeeded in scoring twice or more in three of the previous five home H2Hs against LASK, conceding only five goals in total. Based on these numbers, we believe to witness a 2-1 lead for Sturm Graz in this game.
