Tottenham will look to bounce back from Sunday’s late collapse versus West Ham when they entertain LASK Linz in Europa League Group J.
Jose Mourinho lifted this trophy during his time with Manchester United and has already shown an appetite for more success by coming through three qualifiers.
Spurs scored 12 times in those games and 83/100 they win with over 2.5 goals netted in this match is our first Tottenham vs LASK prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham spent the international break reveling in a 6-1 triumph at Old Trafford and picked up where they left off when racing into a 3-0 lead against West Ham.
Red-hot forward duo Son Heung-min and Harry Kane continued their great run of form to put Spurs in total control with just over a quarter of an hour gone.
However, the Hammers produced a spectacular late flourish to somehow snatch a dramatic draw.
Mourinho refused to be too critical of his players, stating: “Defensively, the team is much better than before.
“Can I say that in all this Premier League that we’re playing, five matches, we concede penalties or free-kicks and only one goal from open play – and this shot was also from the sequence of a free-kick.”
Spurs have been playing some beautiful football going forward, but it is hard to ignore all the defensive lapses.
They have yet to keep a clean sheet in nine matches this term, conceding against Lokomotiv Plovdiv, Shkendija and Maccabi Haifa in this competition.
That makes 17/10 for a home win and both teams to score stand out from the Tottenham vs LASK odds, while 19/2 for 3-1 also catches the eye.
A Look At LASK Linz’s Betting Odds
LASK have been runners-up behind RB Salzburg in Austria’s top flight during the past two regular seasons, although they did slip down to fourth in the Championship round last term.
Their European record was moderate until 12 months ago but this tournament then proved a relatively successful one.
After topping a group featuring Sporting Lisbon, PSV Eindhoven and Rosenborg, AZ Alkmaar were beaten 3-1 on aggregate before a 7-1 drubbing by Manchester United.
This season, LASK have slammed Slovakian side DAC Dunajska Streda 7-0 and romped to a 4-1 victory over Sporting in Portugal.
A 3-0 defeat at Rapid Vienna in their most recent Bundesliga match is worrying, but they returned from the international break with a smooth Austrian Cup success on Saturday.
New manager Dominik Thalhammer, who replaced Valerien Ismael, was previously in charge of the national women’s team for nine years.
Skipper Gernot Trauner and Philipp Wiesinger are a solid pairing at the back, while front man Marko Raguz has struck five times in as many games.
The 22-year-old also shone in Europe last season, so 16/5 for him to net at any time in London is a value addition to our Tottenham vs LASK betting tips.
TOTTENHAM 3-3 West Ham – Son Heung-min, Harry Kane (2)
Rapid Vienna 3-0 LASK LINZ
