LASK v Manchester United Prediction
Manchester United have been in stunning form recently and should record a routine victory against the Austrian minnows, as they aim to score an away goal or two and take a good advantage to Old Trafford for the second leg.
With a crucial Premier League encounter against Tottenham Hotspur around the corner, Solskjaer could opt to rest a few of his key players in favour of the ones in the fringes of the squad, with the likes of Andreas Pereira and Lingard in contention to feature.
