Manchester United vs LASK LIVE!

Manchester United have already qualified for the Champions League next season, but will be looking to round off a strong campaign with silverware as they continue their Europa League journey tonight.

That means there is less pressure to win the Europa League finals tournament in Germany later this month, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s Red Devils must first navigate the second leg of their last-16 tie against LASK Linz.

United are 5-0 up after a first-leg win in Austria, and will be wearing their new 2020/21 home kit for what should be a routine win.

With kick-off scheduled for 8pm BST, follow the action with James Robson at Old Trafford.

YELLOW CARD

2020-08-05T19:41:16.000Z

39 mins: Another booking – this time for McTominay – after scything down Balic on the touchline. 

That’s the kind of foul that would infuriate a manager because the LASK man had absolutely nowhere to go.

2020-08-05T19:39:51.000Z

37 mins: Lingard looks like a man on a mission, sliding in James after an intelligent piece of play from Ighalo.

The Welsh winger tries to return the favour but a timely block from Trauner denies United once again.

YELLOW CARD

2020-08-05T19:37:51.000Z

34 mins: Michorl leaves Lingard in a heap after lunging in with two feet on the centre circle and you have to say, he’s very fortunate only to see yellow there.

The midfielder was apologetic for the tackle and that just might have saved his skin.

32 mins: This is better from the home side. 

Lingard receives the ball in between the lines and he flicks it into Ighalo’s path. The Nigerian takes a clever touch inside his marker but Michorl makes a vital intervention to deny the striker.

2020-08-05T19:33:08.000Z

30 mins: Maguire wide!

Another corner arrives for United and this is where Maguire can be a real handful. So it proves, as he meets Mata’s delivery only to see his header bounce wide of the far post.

2020-08-05T19:30:12.000Z

28 mins: Raguz heads over!

LASK are getting closer and United are being undone by long balls over the top.

This time it’s Renner who gets in behind Fosu-Mensah, whips in a fine cross to Raguz and the veteran striker glances over the bar.

James Robson at Old Trafford

“LASK have been very much the better side here.

“Not for the first time, United look a very different prospect when Solskjaer rings the changes. United’s first XI may be top three in the Premier League, but there is a steep drop off when it comes to the back-ups.”

YELLOW CARD

2020-08-05T19:26:19.000Z

24 mins: Fosu-Mensah gets his name taken for a late challenge on Renner on the edge of the box.

Balic takes it but strikes into the wall and it’s hacked away by McTominay.

2020-08-05T19:25:29.000Z

23 mins: LASK build another promising attack with Balic sending in a low cross to Raguz and it’s just too far in front of him to get a clean contact on it.

The visitors are growing in confidence and United are still struggling to get their rhythm going.

20 mins: Lingard is furious after appearing to be blocked off the ball but play continues, and LASK break away.

He gets his revenge with a foul on Renner and makes his case to the referee.

2020-08-05T19:21:19.000Z

18 mins: Ighalo brings it forward from deep and has Mata to his right, trying to delay his run. But the Nigerian goes for goal but scuffs it well wide.

2020-08-05T19:17:13.000Z

14 mins: Perhaps it’s the fact they haven’t played for 10 days, but Man United haven’t quite got going yet.

Their passing has felt a little disjointed and lacking fluidity so far, while LASK are showing a lot more ambition than the first leg with absolutely nothing to lose.

10 mins: OFF THE BAR!

An early scare for Man Utd!

Andrade sends his header against the upright before Wiesinger drags his effort wide.

Very nearly the lead there for LASK.

7 mins: If there were any fears that LASK would collapse after their 5-0 humbling in the first leg, the Austrian outfit are proving that’s not the case.

We’ve already seen a 50-yard effort and a couple of diagonal passes that were easy on the eye. They’re not lacking confidence.

2020-08-05T19:08:11.103Z

4 mins: Lovely pass from Lingard to set Mata in on goal and he searches for Ighalo with a square pass, but it’s blocked for a corner.

From the resulting delivery, Maguire gets up for a free header but sends it over the bar.

2 mins: The opening stages have been a bit scrappy after Fred lost possession in his own half, but LASK fail to capitalise with McTominay winning the ball back.

Solskjaer will be looking for his side to control the game and get some goals in the process, despite making nine changes to the team.

KICK OFF

2020-08-05T19:01:43.880Z

KICK-OFF!

The players pay tribute to those who died during the coronavirus pandemic and no doubt also to those who were tragically killed in the explosion in Lebanon.

Now we’re underway at Old Trafford. United are playing in their new home shirt tonight for the first time.

2020-08-05T18:56:32.000Z

The stage is set for the teams to walk out onto the pitch and we’re nearly ready to get underway in this ‘mini World Cup style’ Europa League knockout phase.

It will take something incredible for United to even be troubled here tonight – given their five away goals in Austria.

It’s far more realistic to suggest the Red Devils will keep their wits about them and grab a few goals in the process.

Result

FC Copenhagen 3-0 Istanbul Basaksehir (Copenhagen win 3-1 on aggregate)

Manchester United have discovered their quarter-final opponents, should they get through without any hitches tonight.

They will face Copenhagen in the Europa League one-legged tie on August 10 after the Danish outfit overturned a first-leg deficit against Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Superliga side were 1-0 down from the first leg but a double from Jonas Wind and Robert Falk’s second-half strike have put them through to the last eight.

2020-08-05T18:47:24.000Z

Jesse Lingard and Harry Maguire for a quick jog during the warm-ups before kick-off.

The United captain makes his 53rd appearance of the season tonight – that’s the most of any Red Devils player.
