It seems an age ago now, but United’s final match before football was suspended for over three months was the 5-0 drubbing they handed to LASK in the first leg of the last-16 tie in Austria.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic the latter stages of the Europa League have now changed to a one-legged knockout competition, so should United win as expected then they will travel to Germany for the remaining games in the tournament.

Team news for United vs LASK
Solskjaer confirmed this week that defensive duo Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe have been omitted from United’s Europa League squad due to injury, so the pair won’t be available until next season.
The United boss also confirmed that Jesse Lingard will be starting in the match and his line-up will be similar to the one that hammered LASK in the first leg.
“Axel started to get niggles early on when we restarted and he had to have an op in his foot,” Solskjaer said. “He’ll be back early September. Luke sustained an injury against Southampton and he’ll be ready again early September, they should both be ready when the league starts.
“Jesse will be starting tomorrow but the team won’t be too different from the last time we played LASK away in March. We know it was a difficult game. It wasn’t a 5-0 difference [between] the two teams, winning 2-0 after 60 minutes, scored three goals in the last five.
“We know we have to perform and there’s an opportunity for players to stake a place in the quarters if we get through.”
