subordinate Lask He successfully reached the group stage of the UEFA Europa Conference League. Linz athletes celebrated their 2-0 win in the return leg against FC St Johnston. Joker Hussain Balic brought the turn in the last stage, scoring 1-0 and hitting the penalty kick that led to 2-0. The draw for the group stage will take place on Friday 27 August at 1:30 pm.
St Johnstone is causing problems with LASK again
Lenz got off to a very active start and found his first good chance to finish this game via Hong, but Clarke made a safe save (4th place). As in the first leg in Klagenfurt, strong Scots behaved aggressively in duels and again posed problems for the guests. However, the athletes accepted the fight and held out well against it. The great scoring opportunities did not materialize in the first half of the match.
This is also due to the fact that guests from Upper Austria often did not want to get the crucial pass. In the midfield, he showed particularly agile Hong, who served Nakamura in the 36th minute. The Japanese could be upset at the last moment with a fair but risky tackle. In the end, the first half ended in a goalless draw.
After the LASK gates, the Scots got out of their nerve
Linz’s side remained toxic even after the break and once again found an opportunity in the ambitious Hung, but Clarke made a solid save against Michel, just as before. The guests spoiled their offensive efforts again and scored the redeeming goal in the 72nd minute to make the score 0:1. A good mix between Hong and Michoral ended with Flickr, who was watching substitute Husein Balic. The joker chased the ball into the corner from a short distance with no humor – 0:1 (72).
Then frustration spread among the Scots: David Witherspoon, who had only recently been replaced, hit a Flickr elbow in the face and was right to see red (76). Shortly thereafter, Rooney flew off the field in yellow and red after a penalty foul on Balic. Substitute Marco Ragoz took the decision with a penalty kick (84th place).
