Few doubt the overall success of the hosts of this fight, but in no case should the opponent be underestimated. LASK looked pretty good in the early stages, although after such a marathon, fatigue accumulated no less than that of the English club.
In our opinion, the Austrians have practically no chances of a comeback, but it is unlikely that the scenario will repeat itself in the first game. We assume the victory of the hosts, who today do not have many opponents who can defeat them at Old Trafford.
Most likely, we will have a confident victory for Manchester United .
