United put their foot to the floor against LASK

Manchester United are already through to the next round of the Europa League after a first-leg win in Linz but can they put on a show to build confidence? Have a read of our preview here:

Europa League ambitions

Back when this competition was known as the UEFA Cup, it was considered a huge honour to win it. What has happened since is systemic of the overall malaise in football.

Money is the only thing that matters and this competition is not a money-spinner like the Premier League or Champions League, but it is still a trophy and those have been few and far between at Old Trafford in recent years.

United’s 5-0 win in Linz means that this match is pretty much academic. They have no need to go all out and could even give some of their youngsters a chance.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could end up having a very successful season. Finishing in the top four with a chance to add a trophy would be a huge improvement on last season and would give fans some real hope of the good times returning.

This summer, with Champions League football secured, will see a couple of big signings almost certainly but on Wednesday some of the club’s home-grown talent should be given a chance.

This is a great chance for United to play with freedom and without any fear, an opportunity they should look to exploit.

LASK playing for pride

The Austrian outfit from Linz have nothing to play for here. They were outclassed in the first-leg and will be hoping to avoid another hammering.

It is a chance for these players to play in front of a big TV audience and playing for themselves and their pride will make them resilient.

They do have some capable operators. 20-goal hitman Klause has been excellent for them since signing on loan from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.

They also have Marko Raguz in decent nicked, the forward has netted 15 times this season.

Assist merchant Peter Michorl has set up 17 goals for his teammates across 2019/20 while netting eight goals from midfield while Thomas Goiginger has been formidable adding nine strikes himself.

They will know there is no chance of a comeback, but could still cause some problems if taken lightly.

Manchester United v LASK betting tip

United will be looking to exert their authority here and should make light work of the Austrian side. That’s why we are backing Manchester United to win to nil at odds of 2.0 with Betfair.
