Last season, LASK finished third in the league, but the management still changed the coach: Thomas Sageder replaced Ditmar Kuhbauer. With the new coach, the team has lost only one match but is still in the same third position in the league. At home, the Austrians have won four games in a row.

Jürgen Klopp excellently restructured the team in the match against Wolverhampton after a poor first half (final result – victory 3:1). Liverpool has 13 points in the first five rounds and is currently in third place in the league table. Away in official matches, Liverpool has not lost since 1 April.

Our prediction: LASK Linz 1-3 Liverpool. Result 1-3.

LASK has a solid track record of scoring at home and is expected to play fearlessly against Liverpool, a team whose defensive capabilities have been questionable this season.

While a secondary Liverpool lineup might not showcase their usual dynamism, reinforcements are on standby should the situation demand. With Klopp’s in-form forwards, the visitors are poised for a compelling opening win.
