LASK have achieved their first point in the current Europa League football season. Linzers celebrated a 3-0 home win against Union Saint-Gillois on Thursday, thus maintaining their chances of overwintering in the European Cup. Sascha Horvath (25th/hand penalty), Maxime Talofjero (45th+4) and Robert Zulz (77th) ensured a clear victory over the Belgian league leaders, who won the first duel between the two clubs 2:1 two weeks ago. For yourself.
This time LASK won – mainly thanks to a confident first half. In front of 15,900 fans, the Upper Austrians had a slight lead from the start, with the home team making it 1–0 after Ivan Ljubić’s first warning shot hit the crossbar (21st). Moses Ussor took the shot and hit the arm of Christian Burgess, Italian referee Simone Sozza did not hesitate for long and pointed to the spot. After Robert Zulz had missed two penalties recently, Horvath remained composed from the front this time around.
