(1:18)

Manchester United can cement its spot in the Europa League quarterfinals on Wednesday as play resumes with the round of 16 second leg against LASK in England. United won the first leg 5-0 in March with five different players scoring and should cruise into the next round by even more here, while even a big, unexpected loss will likely see United through.

About Manchester
Manchester () is a city and metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester, England. It has a population of 547,627 as of 2018 (making it the fifth-most populous English district). It lies within the United Kingdom’s second-most populous urban area, with a population of 2.5 million and third-most populous metropolitan area, with a population of 3.3 million. It is fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south, the Pennines to the north and east, and an arc of towns with which it forms a continuous conurbation. The local authority for the city is Manchester City Council.
The recorded history of Manchester began with the civilian settlement associated with the Roman fort of Mamucium or Mancunium, which was established in about AD 79 on a sandstone bluff near the confluence of the rivers Medlock and Irwell. Although historically and traditionally a part of Lancashire, areas of Cheshire south of the River Mersey were incorporated into Manchester in the 20th century. The first to be included, Wythenshawe, was added to the city in 1931. Throughout the Middle Ages Manchester remained a manorial township, but began to expand “at an astonishing rate” around the turn of the 19th century. Manchester’s unplanned urbanisation was brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, and resulted in it becoming the world’s first industrialised city. Manchester achieved city status in 1853. The Manchester Ship Canal opened in 1894, creating the Port of Manchester and directly linking the city to the Irish Sea, 36 miles (58 km) to the west. Its fortune declined after the Second World War, owing to deindustrialisation, but the IRA bombing in 1996 led to extensive investment and regeneration. Following successful redevelopment after the IRA bombing, Manchester was the host city for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
In 2019, Manchester surpassed Edinburgh to become the second most visited city in the UK after London. The city is notable for its architecture, culture, musical exports, media links, scientific and engineering output, social impact, sports clubs and transport connections.
Manchester is a city of notable firsts. Manchester Liverpool Road railway station was the world’s first inter-city passenger railway station and the oldest remaining railway station. The city has also excelled in scientific and engineering advancement, as it was at The University of Manchester, in 1917, that scientist Ernest Rutherford first split the atom. The university’s further achievements include Frederic C. Williams, Tom Kilburn and Geoff Tootill who developed and built the world’s first stored-program computer in 1948; and, in 2004, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov successfully isolated and characterised the first graphene. While in 1904 Rolls-Royce motor car company was founded in Manchester by Henry Royce and Charles Rolls.

Storylines

Manchester United: The pressure is officially off of United in this competition, but they won’t be taking it lightly. What was once looked at as their best chance to qualify for the Champions League, the Red Devils did enough in the Premier League to book their spot. But without a trophy this season so far, they have the opportunity to win this competition and are probably the favorites. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can play almost all backups and reserve players and still get the result, but expect some key contributors to play in order to build even more momentum. Some of the stars will likely be limited with this tie essentially over, and the priority will be limiting any injuries. This is one of those games where United fans can get a good glimpse at some of their best young players. 

LASK: The Austrian side needs a miracle to come back here. Winning 5-0 at United would only get them to extra time, so it’s a tall task. Nothing is impossible, but it feels like there is no way this club wins the match, let alone by a scoreline to make this even remotely competitive. Knowing this will probably be their last match of the competition, at least the LASK players get to experience what it is like playing in a storied ground like Old Trafford.

Prediction

Backups play for United, and the Red Devils still win easily. Pick: Manchester United 3, LASK 0
