Manchester United may have finished third in the Premier League, but their season is not over.
After a five-month delay, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side return to Europa League action on Wednesday night when they take on Austrian side LASK in the last 16.
It would take a huge shock for the Red Devils to not proceed to the quarter-finals given they won the first leg 5-0, thanks to goals from Odion Ighalo, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira.
Man Utd could play three more games in the competition, should they make it all the way to the final on Friday August 21.
What time is Man Utd vs LASK?
Utd’s match against LASK – who finished runners up in the Austrian Bundesliga behind champions Red Bull Salzburg for a second consecutive season – will kick-off at 8pm.
The match will be played at Old Trafford without spectators.
Man Utd vs LASK TV channel and live stream
The match will be shown on BT Sport, with the broadcaster holding the rights to show all Europa League fixtures.
Coverage will begin on BT Sport 1 at 7.30pm and those with subscriptions can stream it through the BT Sport app.

That match also gets underway at 8pm.
Man Utd’s next opponents
Barring an upset of unbelievable proportions, Utd will be back in action on Monday when they take on the winners of İstanbul Başakşehir vs FC Copenhagen in the quarter-final at Stadion Köln in Germany.
The Turkish side hold the advantage, going to Denmark for the second leg with a 1-0 aggregate lead.
The quarter-finals and semi-finals will be single matches this year, as UEFA looks to complete the tournament in time for the 2020/21 season to start.
Man Utd 1/4
Manchester United lead 5-0 from the first leg, the last match both sides played before lockdown but still played behind closed doors, but how do you approach an effective dead rubber in betting terms?
LASK will name a full strength line up, United will heavily rotate, but United have won seven of their 11 competitive matches since the restart, LASK have lost seven of their 11.
LASK haven’t been in competitive action since the Austrian Bundesliga ended at the start of July, failed to score in a friendly last week and didn’t hit the back of the net in two of their final three competitive games, so United to win to nil at 17/20 with thepools.com is still a stand out tip.
And with United likely to ease off as the match draws on, the highest scoring half for United to be the first half at 11/5 with thepools.com is also worth considering.
