After securing a ticket to the Champions League, Manchester United sets on resuming their quest for Europa League trophy. The side will be heading into the Old Trafford to take on side LASK Linz for the Europa last 16. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 7 pm.
The Red Devils will be heading into the match with a 5-0 goal lead against their opponents in the first leg. Ole Gunnar is all smile after making it to the top-four finish in the Premier League after a fight to the death against side Leicester City.
Since the restart, it has proven to be a moment for growth for the side. The side did not register a loss in the Premier League since their last encounter with LASK dating five months ago. The only loss the side faced was the 3-1 loss to Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The side will be keen on the quarter-finals of the competition where either Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir await. This is thanks to the impressive display at Linzer Stadion in the first leg.
LASK entered the coronavirus lockdown at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga. The side was docked 12 points by breaching the safety rules in the coronavirus epidemic. Since the restart, the side has only two wins in their last ten matches.
