United v LASK: Everything you need to know
Manchester United resume our UEFA Europa League campaign on Wednesday with the last-16 second leg against LASK.
The Reds go into the match at Old Trafford with a 5-0 advantage, following a strong performance in Austria during the opening leg in what was the club’s last game before lockdown.
It is United’s final home game of the extended 2019/20 season, with the winner of the tie progressing to the Europa League finals tournament, to be held in Germany.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match...
WHICH TV CHANNEL IS IT ON?
Wednesday’s game will be broadcast live in the UK, on BT Sport, with kick-off set for 20:00 BST. MUTV subscribers can watch exclusive build-up in the Match Day Live show from 18:55 BST, followed by live commentary of the game itself. With fans unable to attend the matches, our season ticket holders have been offered free access to MUTV Digital for two months, and can watch match highlights the following day, along with the rest of our exclusive content.
WHO IS THE REFEREE?
Greek referee Anastasios Sidiropoulos has been selected to officiate Wednesday's match, with linesmen Polychronis Kostaras and Lazaros Dimitriadis and fourth official Anastasios Papapetrou as his assistants. The Video Assistant Referee system will be in use during proceedings at Old Trafford, with Italians Paolo Valeri and Maurizio Mariani responsible for any referrals.
WHO MIGHT WE FACE IF WE WIN?
Should United progress to the quarter-finals in Germany, we would face either Istanbul Basaksehir or FC Copenhagen in a single-legged quarter-final. The pair face off in the Danish capital ahead of our game on Wednesday, with recently crowned Turkish champions Basaksehir carrying a slender 1-0 lead into the match after the first leg.
Two other British teams are still in the competition in the form of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Rangers. Both will play their respective matches on Thursday evening, with Wolves currently tied 1-1 with Olympiacos – who they host at Molineux. Meanwhile, Steve Gerrard’s side have an uphill battle as they travel to Bayer Leverkusen trailing 3-1. Following the draw, the Reds know we could potentially face Wolves in the semi-finals, while we wouldn’t come across Rangers until the final, should both sides get there.
