The Austrian Bundesliga opening round of matches continues on Sunday afternoon when LASK Linz play host to Altach as the betting tips continue at the TGW Arena.

LASK Linz Prediction – Can LASK go one step better?

Sunday afternoon’s hosts, LASK Linz, finished runners-up to Austrian Bundesliga title winners, Salzburg, at the end of last season.

The hosts will be looking to go one step better this time around as they seek an opening day win over Altach at their TGW Arena.

However, LASK Linz will have their work cut out if they’re to make a serious challenge for Salzburg’s mantle, but they have a decent chance of grabbing 3 points at home in this clash.

LASK secured a Europa League qualifying spot thanks to back-to-back wins to round their successful season off in style.

Wins against St Polten and Austria Vienna have been followed up with a successful pre-season which has seen LASK lose just 1 of their 4 friendlies played.

In addition, LASK registered a heavy defeat away at Regionalliga side, Union Vocklamarkt with a resounding 6-2 win in the domestic cup.

The hosts are therefore expected to be in confident mood ahead of Sunday’s clash, especially as they’ve held the upper hand over Altach in recent exchanges.

LASK have won 5 of the last 6 encounters against Altach.

Altach Prediction – Can Altach halt LASK’s dominance?

The visitors posted a mixed return in their pre-season friendlies as a win over Dornbirn was offset by defeats to Grasshopper and West Ham.

Draws with Luzern and Premier League side, Southampton, were considered positive and encouraging results for Alex Pastoor’s side.

The visitors also racked up an impressive 6-1 victory away from home in the domestic cup against Kufstein, but they’re under no illusions as to their task on Sunday.

Altach also recorded back-to-back wins at the end of last season’s Bundesliga in the Relegation Round which saved them from any last minute relegation dramas.

Wins against Hartberg and Rapid Vienna spared Altach’s blushes and a nervous final day of the domestic top flight season.

They finished the season in solid fashion away from home too as they out together a 7-match sequence without defeat.

This impressive set of results included wins at Austria Vienna, Hartberg, Wacker Innsbruck and Rapid Vienna.

The fact still remains though that their previous history against LASK Linz is not a good one, and they’ll do well to get anything from this trip.
