LASK Linz News and Form
This is the Champions League playoff debut for Linz and this is going to be just their fifth game in the European Cup/Champions League in their history. They were runners up in the Austrian top flight last season and made their return to European action last season for the first time since 2000.
They were in the Europa League second qualifying round last season and got past that but fell to Besiktas in the third qualifying round. This is the first time that they have ever met a Belgian side. Linz entered at the third qualifying round in this season’s UEFA Champions League campaign and collected a 5-2 aggregate win over FC Basel, winning both legs. That was a pretty impressive result against a strong side.
