Club Brugge vs LASK for the Champions League qualification match on Wednesday at Jan Breydel Stadium.
Club Brugge will try to defend their slim Champions League qualifying advantage against LASK when they host at Jan Breydel stadium in the second leg.
The Belgian side has won a 1-0 over the Austrians in the first leg, but coach Philippe Clement must warn his players to have all the necessary focus.
In any case, the away game’s victory gave the team confidence, and they haven’t lost at home this season, where they already have eleven unbeaten matches from the previous season.
In the Jupiler League, their game was postponed, thus allowing them to better prepare for Wednesday’s match.
The team currently has ten points (three wins and a draw), standing in second place, along with KV Mechelen and Mouscron.
LASK must have a positive and offensive approach to this second leg game if they want to dream about qualifying.
The Austrians didn’t have the same privilege as their opponents, so they had to play a league match, where they beat Rapid Vienna 2-1. This way, they reached thirteen points (four wins and one draw). It is two points below leaders Salzburg, who is the winner of the last six editions of the Austrian league.
The team’s defeat against Brugge was Linz’s first this season as they came from a run of seven unbeaten matches (six wins and one draw).
There are no significant technical differences between the two teams, I think the home factor and the advantage gained in the first match could be decisive.
Brugge’s prediction on a new win over Linz is perhaps the right option.
