LASK won a football test match today against the leaders of the 2nd division, SKU Amstetten on the time-honored LASK square on Daimlerstraße 9:2 (4:1) and unpacked one or the other goodie.

For example, the Greek striker Efthymios Koulouris, who hadn’t really got going before, impressed with a “double pack” including a side kick worth seeing.

Marin Ljubicic, who will be back in the Bundesliga in a week (5 p.m.) on Saturday at leaders FC Salzburg after his ban at competitive level, also contributed two goals to the Schützenfest. That was balm on the soul after the bitter 1: 4 home debacle against WSG Tirol.

Goals every minute

From the start, Linz left no doubt about the winner of the game and took the lead after just eight minutes through Ljubicic, who pushed a Balic pass over the line from close range. After 15 minutes, the goalscorer also demonstrated his assisting qualities when he dropped a Stojkovic cross onto Sascha Horvath. Horvath converted into the lower left corner – 2:0.

Goal number three was then scored by Ljubicic himself: Branko Jovicic energetically penetrated the opponent’s penalty area and served the black and white center forward, who uncompromisingly smashed the ball under the crossbar – 3:0 (23rd).

Amstetten came in front of LASK’s goal for the first time in the 31st minute and immediately took the opportunity: Left winger Joao Soares defeated keeper Tobias Lawal with a lob, which is worth seeing. The number one athlete, Alexander Schlager, was absent because he is with Austria’s national team.

LASK followed suit shortly afterwards: Husein Balic was able to push in after a free kick from Sascha Horvath in the six-yard box – 4:1.

“Put on a good performance”

After the break, Amstetten came back from the spot with a penalty from Stefan Urlaub (52′), but an own goal by Stefan Goldnagl immediately put an end to any doubts about Linz’s victory (56′). In the 62nd minute, Koulouris increased the lead to 6:2 with a header and six minutes later followed up with an excellent side kick into the Kreuzeck. That was technically outstanding.

A perfectly executed Michorl free-kick (77th) and a sweep by Keito Nakamura (82nd) ​​sealed the 9-2 final score.

“The boys showed a good performance today and were rewarded with many goals,” said LASK head coach Dietmar Kühbauer with satisfaction.

“We were able to keep the rhythm with the test run – from now on our focus is solely on the next league game. We all know that a very difficult opponent is waiting for us there.” Namely the reigning double winner from the city of Mozart.

Let there be light on the Gugl

The day before, LASK had literally seen the light. During the course of the first BWT Leading Club partner event, the floodlights of the Raiffeisen Arena on the Frogberg in Linz were switched on for the first time on Thursday. Heinrich Schaller, the general manager of the RLB Oberösterreich, personally activated the light elements of the black-and-white grandstand via an app.

“A traditional club like LASK deserves support. The club has numerous fans throughout the state – so it is particularly important to us at Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich to support the stadium project as a name sponsor and to help bring LASK back to the top,” said Schaller.

In the belly of the LASK fan stand, where up to 4,500 fans will soon be whipping the black and white forward, the traditional Linz club held an informative talk evening on the current state of affairs on the stadium construction site. The team of architects led by Elisabeth Utz and Harald Markon gave exciting insights into the LASK project of the century.

To name just a few figures, 1523 plans were drawn up for the building, which has a total area of ​​an impressive 39,000 square meters. In addition, around 1,500 ductile piles were installed, which required 14 kilometers of steel pipes.

Blue and white narrowly lost

Second division team FC Blau-Weiß LInz lost a test match at German Bundesliga relegated Greuther Fürth 1:2 (0:1) despite an appealing performance. Simon Seidl scored the goal for the guests, it was 1:1 in the 70th minute.
