After a ten-day break, Manchester United return to action on Wednesday against Austrian side LASK as the Europa League restarts.

Having destroying their opponents 5-0 in the first leg, there’s almost no pressure hanging over the Red Devils as they’ve already all but secured their place in the next round.

We’ll likely see a fair amount of rotation for the game as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aims to prepare his side for the quarter finals.

United will be without both Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe. Phil Jones could potentially make his first appearance since January for the Red Devils, but that remains unlikely.

LASK are missing Thomas Goiginger and Marvin Potzmann, with both struggling with cruciate ligament injuries. The Austrian side will also be without midfielder Lukas Grgic, who’s out with an abdominal injury.

Manchester United: Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Williams; Fred, McTominay, Mata; James, Martial, Pereira.

LASK: Schlager; Ramsebner, Wrosty, Trauner; Ranftl, Michorl, Holland, Renner; Tetteh, Raguz, Frieser.

Having only lost once since January, United come into this one in scintillating form. The Red Devils have found a way to grind out results even when they aren’t at their best. United secured a Champions League spot with a 2-0 win at Leicester on the final day of the Premier League season, despite being 14 points adrift earlier in the season.

LASK’s form following football’s restart has been nothing short of disastrous. In their 11 games back so far, they’ve only emerged victorious on three occasions.

Here’s how both sides have fared in their last five games.

With such a healthy advantage from the first leg, there won’t be a shock overturning of the aggregate scoreline here.

United were in excellent goalscoring form during the final few weeks of the Premier League, and they should see off the visitors with ease here.

Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 LASK
