In the UEFA Europa League, Manchester United are set to host LASK at Old Trafford for the second leg of this Round of 16 tie. Manchester United are well positioned as they lead the tie 5-0. 

LASK had a strong season in the Austrian domestic competition as they finished the regular season in top position. Unfortunately LASK were unable to continue their good form in the final part of the season as they failed to win the title. In terms of the UEFA Europa League, it seems unlikely that LASK will be able to qualify for the next round as they are 5 goals behind and playing this leg of the tie away from home. 

On the other side of the coin, Manchester United look in good form. The Red Devils finished the Premier League season with great strength as they finished 3rd ahead of teams like Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea. In the final game of the season, Manchester United defeated Leicester City 2-0 away from home. It was a strong performance by the Red Devils as the team controlled 54% of the possession and dominated most of the contest. Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard were the two players that scored for Manchester United. 

In the first leg of this tie, Manchester United defeated LASK 5-0. It was a dominant display by Manchester United with the team controlling 57% of the possession and having 19 shots. Daniel James, Mason Greenwood, Juan Mata and Odion Ighalo all scored goals for Manchester United during the win.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester United to win this match with some ease. Manchester United are a significantly stronger team when compared to LASK and they proved that in the first leg of this tie. The over 3.5 goals seems like the best wager for this match since I see Manchester United scoring 4 or more goals at home.
