Tip LASK - Manchester United FC
LASK Linz hosts Manchester United as the UEFA Europa League quarter finals take off this Thursday, with the two sides hoping to register a first leg advantage. Both sides are coming from league wins in their weekend matches, with LASK having beaten Mattersburg in the Bundesliga as United trounced Manchester City in the Premier League. LASK have done fairly well in their recent matches; they head to this game on four wins and a loss in their last five outings. They were expected to run over Mattersburg but the 1-0 win was just enough to restore their confidence after a loss by a similar margin in the cup, to rivals Salzburg. It also marked their second clean sheet in the last five matches and they will be hoping for more of the same, with a bigger win margin on Thursday. With four straight wins at home, and unbeaten in six, they will be confident of getting the tie in their favor. In 12 Europa League matches, LASK have won eight and lost two; they have straight wins in six played at home and have conceded just two goals in the six, with four ending in clean sheets. In five of their six home matches in Europa League, LASK have scored two or more goals.
Just like LASK, Manchester United head to this game with four wins in t6heir last five, the difference though is that United have not lost any of their last five. They head here high in confidence after their win over Manchester City and with four clean sheets in the last five matches, they will look at this as a winnable clash. They have one win in four away matches in Europa League and will be hoping to improve on that. In the last round, they drew 1-1 away to Club Brugge before thrashing them 5-0 at home. On a run of six away matches unbeaten across all competitions, United will be hoping to stretch their away form here. In their last 19 matches in the Europa League, they have lost just once, the away defeat at Astana in the group stages.

Conclusion LASK - Manchester United FC
Manchester United have had a good run in the Europa League, albeit a bit shaky in their away matches. They will need to be at their best here as they face a side very good at home in this competition, with six straight home wins. After their win over City, we feel United will be very confident heading here and for the first time we expect LASK to be shaken at home. A draw seems the most probable outcome here.
