Team News: LASK Linz
With a fully healthy squad to pick from, the LASK Linz manager Dietmar Kühbauer has no fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that LASK Linz appear most likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Alexander Schlager, Marvin Potzmann, Philipp Ziereis, Felix Luckeneder, Rene Renner, Hyun-seok Hong, Branko Jovicic, Thomas Goiginger, Sascha Horvath, Keito Nakamura and Marin Ljubicic.
We feel that LASK Linz and Wolfsberger AC won’t have much between them here, and goals could be hard to come by.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We’re therefore expecting a 0-0 scoreline at the end of this game.
