LASK Linz vs Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions
Linzer Athletik-Sport-Klub are one of the more surprising names left in the Europa League, with Die Schwarz-Weißen having won at the group stage before claiming a 3-1 aggregate victory over AZ Alkmaar in the first knockout round.
LASK previously won their Europa League group when finishing ahead of Sporting CP and PSV Eindhoven and we shouldn’t underestimate Valerien Ismael’s team despite the fact that they don’t have a great deal of European pedigree.
The Austrian team finished second in their domestic division last season and they are six points clear at the top of the Bundesliga this year. Interestingly, they have a comfortable lead over a Red Bull Salzburg team who ruffled Liverpool’s feathers during the Champions League phase.
Therefore, this isn’t as easy for Manchester United as it might initially appear, with the Red Devils trying to juggle this competition with the Premier League and FA Cup, even if Bruno Fernandes has made a big difference to the team from an attacking point-of-view.
United managed a huge 6-1 aggregate victory over Club Brugge in the previous round although they could only draw the first game by a 1-1 scoreline in Belgium before running riot at Old Trafford against a team who were reduced to ten men early in the game.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to continue rotating the squad and he would be happy with another scoring draw in Austria, with LASK having the potential to pull off an upset considering they average 2.7 goals per match at the Linzer Stadion.
You can back the Austrian front runners with half a goal start at decent odds and that could land a profit against a United team who haven’t convinced away from home in Europe throughout the season.
