Goal-fest expected on Thursday in Austria

<div><h2>LASK Linz vs PSV</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Thursday, November 7, at Linzer Stadion</strong></a></p><p>PSV are leading the standings with 7 points earned in 3 matches followed by Sporting with 6 points and LASK with 4 points. The Austrian side managed to keep PSV on the road to a goalless draw having a defensive approach and returning home with 1 point. LASK won 2-0 at home against Austria Wien last weekend extending their unbeaten run across all competitions to six matches. They must win this match in order to keep their qualification hopes alive. They can’t afford to have the same defensive approach and we expect them to force the victory. On the other side, PSV are winless in the previous 4 matches across all competitions and it won’t be a big surprise if they will fail to win this one too. Not just that but they failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches which is very unusual for them. Usually they are scoring goals for fun but after losing some of their key attacking players in the summer their attacking firepower has significantly diminished.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>PSV will be without Eredivisie top scorer Donyell Malen, injured but also without one of their top midfielders Steven Bergwijn who’s also injured. We expect Bruma to lead the attacking line and we also expect Ibrahim Afellay to earn some minutes on Thursday. LASK Linz’s Emanuel Pogatetz, Markus Wostry, Christian Ramsebner, and Inpyo Oh will all miss this game due to injuries. Winger Thomas Goiginger is one of the players to watch for the Austrian side. Their goalkeeper Alexander Schlager was the player of the match in the reverse fixture keeping a clean sheet pulling off some great saves on the road against PSV.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Both teams missed many opportunities in the Netherlands, but we don’t expect them to repeat that. For the hosts this is a must win as they are fighting for a top 2 finish which will earn them a knock-out stage spot. At home they always have the tendency to go all in and leave many spaces at the back. Despite missing some of their key players PSV are still lethal on the break being fully packed with skillful and fast players. Normally the bookies will offer 1.55 for the over 2.5 goals (if PSV were fully fit). We’re ready to take advantage of the great price and bet the over 2.5 goals in the match.</p><p><a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Over 2.5 goals at 1.82 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p><p> </p></div>
