The only international break during the spring season of the ADMIRAL Bundesliga is now history. With the first home game of the championship group, LASK re-enters the fray, hosting SK Austria Klagenfurt at the Raiffeisen Arena on Easter Sunday at 2:30 PM (live on Sky Sport Austria).

Two weeks ago, the Athletikers kicked off the final phase of the Bundesliga with a goalless draw against SK Rapid. Now, in a clash between third and fifth (buy tickets now), the Linz-based team aims for their first full victory of the calendar year. A win would solidify their current position in the table and create a four-point gap with the guests from Carinthia. Achieving this requires improved efficiency in front of the opponent's goal and maintaining defensive stability. In the last five rounds, LASK kept three clean sheets and conceded only two goals.

During the international break, seven Athletikers were on duty with their national teams, while the remaining players focused on tactical and physical aspects. They also played a friendly match against TSV 1860 Munich last week, which they won 1-0. Klagenfurt's opponent also used the international break to test their mettle against second division leaders GAK, resulting in a 2-2 draw.

Impressive statistics

The LASK's record against Klagenfurt is highly encouraging. In all 19 encounters since the founding of Austria Klagenfurt, the Linz team remained unbeaten and managed to score at least once in every match. At home, they secured a three-point victory in eight out of ten competitive games.

While the Upper Austrians emerged victorious with a 3-1 away win in the first encounter this season, the teams settled for a 2-2 draw in the return match at the beginning of February.
