Manchester United vs Linzer ASK Betting Tips & Predictions
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now be glad that Manchester United were so clinical at the Linzer Stadion on 12 March, with the Red Devils running riot to beat a tricky LASK side by a 5-0 scoreline and effectively book their place in the last eight of the Europa League.
While United have to play out this last sixteen second leg clash at Old Trafford against opponents who won’t have had a competitive match since 5 July, the tie is already cut and dried and our tip is that we’ll see a few goals being scored in the process.
LASK’s domestic season ended pretty badly considering the team suffered three consecutive defeats and were also deducted six points after breaking protocol, with that leading to Red Bull Salzburg landing the Austrian League title against all the betting odds.
The visitors realistically have no chance of going through although they will relish the opportunity to play at Old Trafford and have nothing to lose from having a crack at a team who are among the favourites to win the competition.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to rest several members of his first team considering that they will have only just finished their domestic campaign and will want to compete hard in Germany when it comes to the latter stages of the competition.
Therefore, players such as Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial could be kept in reserve, although Daniel James, Fred, Brandon Williams and Eric Bailly are all decent players who can come in and do a job.
We’re likely to see the game played out in a fairly relaxed manner and United won’t care too much about reaching top gear providing that they avoid any unnecessary slip-ups. Our prediction is that we could see a few goals being scored and perhaps something like a 2-2 draw.
