Manchester United vs LASK Prediction and Betting Preview 05 August 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Manchester United vs LASK PredictionBeginning the season very woefully, Manchester United were even touted to finish in the bottom half of the standings early on. Failing to assert their dominance in games, the Red Devils continued to drop points, even against the easiest of oppositions.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester)
However, things took a turn for the better at the turn of the year, United’s resurgence coinciding with Bruno Fernandes’ arrival in January. Surely, this is no mere coincidence as the Portugal international helped the club rise from their ruins. He has been totally faultless so far.

Since Fernandes’ move to Old Trafford, Manchester United have not lost a single game in the Premier League. Following an outstanding run of form after the COVID-19 break, the Mancunians successfully eclipsed a fourteen-point top-four deficit to finish third on the standings.

Having successfully booked a place in next season’s edition of the Champions League, United will turn their attentions to the Europa League where they lock horns with LASK in a second-leg Round-of-16 fixture on Wednesday night. Expect a flurry of goals from the hosts at Old Trafford come kickoff.

Manchester United vs LASK Team News

It has been a pretty decent campaign for the Red Devils so far, finishing third on the standings and reaching the semi-finals of both FA Cup and EFL Cup competitions. Barring some poor performances along the way, United should easily have claimed some piece of silverware already.

Ending their season in mixed form, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have some reservations about his side’s displays in their final league games. However, the Norwegian gaffer can have no complaints about his players’ dip-in-form towards the end of the campaign, given they were running low on steam.

Having maintained the same starting lineup post-lockdown, it comes as no surprise that some of the players began to lose concentration as the season wore on. Now, the lads have had a well-deserved break and will be raring to get on the pitch once again.

Drawn with the likes of AZ Alkmaar, Partizan Belgrade and Astana in the Europa League, Manchester United made light work of Group L, finishing top of the log with 13 points from 6 games. Never really threatened by any side, the Red Devils steamrolled through the group in brilliant fashion.
Meanwhile, take nothing from this LASK side, they have been truly phenomenal this season. Prior to the coronavirus break, they were top of the Austria Bundesliga log, holding a six-points safety buffer over second-placed Red Bull Salzburg.

They had looked set for a surprise league title win before an unfortunate incident unfolded at the Linzer Stadion. The Black-Whites were ducked a whopping twelve points after the restart for reportedly breaching coronavirus safety rules during training drills.

With this, Die Laskler lost confidence with morale within the dressing room dipping. Ultimately, they ended the campaign in fourth with 33 points from 32 games. Also, they have been on a horrendous run of form in recent weeks, struggling to get important points on board.

Turning their attentions to Europa League action this week, LASK will need to overturn a five-goal deficit at Old Trafford on Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the competition. Surely, they cannot pull off this feat and their journey to Manchester is simply just a waste of fuel.
