5th August 2020 – 21:00, Old Trafford, Manchester
Manchester United is hosting LASK in the second-leg match of the Europa League 8th finals. The hosts already have a significant lead from the first leg, while the away side is looking forward to a good display at Old Trafford.
Match Preview & Team News
Although they didn’t have a good start of the campaign, Manchester United managed to finish in the top four in the Premier League and book their place in the Champions League for the next season. They eventually finished in 3rd place after beating Leicester City 2:0 in a direct clash for the top four. The Red Devils significantly improved their defending in the second part of the campaign, and the hosts conceded a total of 36 goals. They have been playing very well in front of the home crowd, and lost just two matches at home. Bruno Fernandes turned out to be an excellent signing, and Portuguese international is a true leader. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can count on building a game philosophy around him, and the next season might be even better.
LASK had a magnificent campaign in the regular stage of Austrian Bundesliga. It seemed that they would break the hegemony of Salzburg; however, they’ve made a colossal mistake. Austrian FA fined them with a four-point deduction after they started preparations for the continuation of the campaign earlier than it was allowed. Therefore, they lost the advantage over Salzburg and were in a pretty bad form at the very finish of the season. The visitors lost three times in a row and slipped to the 4th place. LASK eliminated AZ Alkmaar in the previous round, but this time, they have a very tough task to proceed further.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Manchester United is a clear favorite in this clash, and since they fulfilled the primary goal of the season, the hosts can entirely focus on challenging the Europa League trophy. We believe the home side will win the match, and also secure the advantage at the half time.
Goals Market Prediction
The hosts have been pretty efficient lately, while LASK conceded at least two times in the last three occasions. This match should go above 2.5 margin.
