LASK will welcome Manchester United to the Linzer Stadium on Thursady for their clash in the Europa League round of 16, here are the details you need to know ahead of the clash that would be played behind close doors due to the ravaging epidemic.
Lee Grant is unlikely to feature in a first-team squad for the remainder of the campaign having recently undergone surgery for an unspecified issue.
LASK will be without midfielder duo Thomas Goiginger and Marvin Potzmann due to knee injuries, while defenders Petar Filipovic and Philipp Wiesinger both miss the clash through suspension.
The Red Devils will miss the services of Marcos Rashford against the Austria opponents as well as Anthony Martial who collided with the post during United’s 2-0 win and will miss out here, Paul Pogba is a huge doubt for the clash.
Diogo Dalot and Jesse Lingard will also miss out.
HEAD TO HEAD:
The clash on Thursday at the Linzer Stadium will be the first time both teams will play.
LASK is runners-up to Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga last season, LASK also took part in UEFA competition for the first time since 2000 but were eliminated on away goals by Beşiktaş in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round.
LASK have won seven of their eight European home games over the past two seasons, scoring 19 goals in the process, the sole defeat coming in that UEFA Champions League play-off tie against Club Brugge.
Manchester United is on a role having gone unbeaten in 10 matches, and last weekend’s Manchester derby win should have them full of confidence ahead of the encounter against the Austria team.
