Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: Raiffeisen Arena (Pasching)
The Red Devils are unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions ahead of their trip to Linzer Stadion, where they will take on LASK for the first time ever in a competitive match.

Due to the spread of the coronavirus across Europe, it was announced on Tuesday that this game will now be played behind closed doors.
A Manchester United side in red hot form travel to Austria to take on LASK in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie on Thursday evening.

Still riding high from an impressive derby victory against Manchester City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will need to keep their wits about them as the Austrian league leaders LASK have proven to be a team not to be underestimated throughout their European adventure.

Manchester United are the clear favourites but a recurring theme throughout the season has been their fallibility against sides they 'should' defeat. Whether LASK can take advantage of this precedent should make for an intriguing encounter on Thursday evening.

LASK Linz vs Manchester United Team News

United have well and truly turned a corner under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the past six weeks, coinciding with the arrivals of January signings Odion Ighalo and Bruno Fernandes.

Not only have both players fitted into the squad seamlessly, particularly in the case of regular starter Fernandes, but they have also managed to improve the performances of those around them.

The Red Devils have won seven matches in their ongoing 10-game unbeaten run, most recently seeing off bitter rivals Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday.

Old Trafford was at its loudest for a number of years as goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay earned United a deserved win that leaves them fifth in the table.

That will be enough for Champions League qualification should City's two-year European ban be upheld, but Solskjaer's men also have another route into UEFA's showpiece competition.

For that to happen they will have to match their achievement of 2017 by going all the way in the Europa League.

After easing through the group stage and brushing aside Club Brugge 6-1 on aggregate in the first knockout round, United are now the bookies' favourite to win the competition.

Taking that successful run three years ago into account, the Red Devils have lost just one of their last 19 matches in the Europa League, winning 13 of those.

LASK are the side tasked with halting United's recent revival, and they also enter this fixture full of confidence after opening up a six-point lead at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga.

On the continent, meanwhile, the Black-Whites are unbeaten in their last six matches, beating the likes of PSV Eindhoven and AZ already in this season's competition.

Injured or Suspended Players

LASK Linz: Balic, Goiginger, Potzmann, Wiesinger and Filipovic.

Manchester United: Pogba, Rashford, Grant and Fosu-Mensah.
