Manchester United vs LASK Linz Free Betting Tips

If the Champions League will start this Friday, August 7, the Europa League will resume its rights this Wednesday 5 and will serve as a great rehearsal. Manchester United will host LASK Linz at Old Trafford for what will certainly be the only meeting without any real stake in these knockout stages of the Europa League. Winners 5-0 in the first leg in Austria on March 12, the Red Devils will quietly be able to prepare for their upcoming quarter-final against the Austrians.

Especially since the two teams have experienced two opposed post-containment periods. Leader after the regular season in the Bundesliga, LASK collapsed completely when competition resumed, the fault of a series of defeats against its direct competitors (3 wins, 1 draw, 6 losses) and withdrawal of 6 points due to non-compliance with sanitary rules during confinement. As a direct consequence, the French coach Valérien Ismael, who had nevertheless led the Linz club to the top of the championship, was disembarked, and it was Dominik Thalhammer, former coach of the Austrian women’s national team, who took the relay.

Without even talking about the 5 goals to go up, the Austrian club does not seem able to stand up to Man United. Especially since the men of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, impressive in this second part of the season, have achieved the feat of going from a possible qualification for the preliminary round of the C3 to a third-place and a direct qualification for the next phase of Champions League hens. Just that!
