LASK vs Manchester United

The coronavirus outbreak has taken a number of victims this round in the Europa League but one of the fixtures that survives to an extent is between Austrian Bundesliga side LASK and Premier League club Manchester United that is set to kick-off at 5:55pm GMT at the Linzer Stadion later today. The game is set to be played in front of just 500 people after restrictions put in place over mass gatherings by the Austrian government.

LASK are one of the less-fashionable names left in this competition and the limitations enacted by the Austrian government in order to address the coronavirus issue could cost the club £1 million in revenue. A further blow is that Valerien Ismael (a name familiar to you @Mindfulness after his brief stint with Crystal Palace as a player back in 1998!) is without midfielder Thomas Goiginger who picked up a serious knee injury in their league game with Mattersburg on the weekend. The Austrians saw off Dutch side AZ by a 3-1 aggregate score in the last 32. Interestingly, these two sides met in a pre-season friendly back in 1991 when LASK won 5-1. It was a game that took place just days after Peter Schmeichel had been signed by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Manchester United come into this game in a rich vein of form. The unbeaten run continues to 10 matches in all competitions and the 6-1 aggregate win over Belgian side Club Brugge in the previous round of this competition shows that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are perhaps tapping into something. The 2-0 win over rivals Manchester City on the weekend was further proof of that. The Red Devils remain without Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford with Anthony Martial also now unavailable. United boast 7 wins and 1 draw against Austrian opposition in European football. The Manchester club have also lost just 1 of their last 19 matches in the Europa League. Not bad form at all.

This is a tough one to call. United laboured to a 1-1 draw out in Belgium in the first leg against Club Brugge and they have only won 1 of their 4 away matches in the Europa League this season. LASK will see this as one of the biggest games in their history so I am expecting them to give everything. United missing Martial is a big blow but despite what people say Odion Ighalo isn't a bad option to have up top. I think United can get a narrow win with the injury to Goiginger being particularly potentially damaging for LASK. The odds on the away win make it worth backing.

Olympiakos vs Wolves

It's been clear to see over recent days just how reluctant Premier League club Wolves have been for this fixture against Greek Super League side Olympiakos to go ahead at 8pm GMT tonight from the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus after Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis tested positive for the coronavirus this week. Still, the game goes ahead but behind closed doors.

Olympiakos head into this game off the back of a stunning away goals win against English club Arsenal after a 2-2 draw on aggregate in the last 32. The Gunners had appeared to seal the tie with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring with 7 minutes left in extra-time but the main man for the Greek side, Youssef El-Arabi, popped up in the final minute to bag the winning goal. Olympiakos also eliminated Burnley from this competition last season. The 2-1 win away to Arsenal in the previous round was only a second win in Europe this season after the club's disappointing display in the Champions League group stage.

Wolves have to put all their concerns about coronavirus to one side. Nuno Santo might have to be without Jonny and Adama Traore. Only Basel have won more matches in this season's Europa League than Wolves and no other side has scored more goals than the English club in the competition this year. Striker Diogo Jota is looking to become the first player in major UEFA club competitions to score hat-tricks in three successive matches. The last player to score three hat-tricks in a single Europa League campaign was Radamel Falcao for Porto back in 2010/11.

It'll be interesting to see how mentally prepared Wolves are for this game. I just feel they've been a little distracted by the coronavirus issues and don't really have the right mentality coming into the game. Olympiakos are a lethal side at home and unless Wolves are at their best then I can see the home side getting a victory. The only sticking point is the lack of home support and that could make this venue a lot less intimidating. Wolves might feel so aggrieved at the game going ahead that they'll play better. It's a tough one to call outright so I'm going to avoid that and just back the goals markets.

LASK 4.80

If you take Man Utd in this one, on away with no spectators and no attack, you're basically taking a team because of the crest. The Linz side are good, fit, on as good a run of form as United, highly motivated, and home. What's more, you get 4/1 for a home side to win a first leg match when United don't have to be concerned if they lose narrowly, with the second leg at home.
