Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils beat the Austrian team 2-1 and, plus the bulky 5-0 first leg, was enough for them to qualify.
Five months after the first leg, the one that ended with a 5-0 win for Solskjaer’s men, Manchester United defeated 2-1 LASK in Old Trafford and advanced to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League.
In the first half, the visiting team showed more enthusiasm to seek the result, despite the remoteness and the impossible mission. The Austrians were better, but did not consummate their arrivals in the area.
Already in the second half, LASK continued with the search for the goal and achieved it through Philipp Wiesinger at 55 ‘, who took with his unskillful leg, the right, a ball on a pique that he sent to the corner, unbeatable for the Argentine Sergio Romero .
However, the joy was short-lived for the visit, since it only took Jesse Lingard two minutes to give equality to the Red Devils after Juan Mata enabled the English attacker, who was alone in front of the rival goalkeeper. On the end, Martial entered with more freshness and scored 2-1 for the homeowners after defining below the goalkeeper.
In this way, with the aggregate 7-1 in favor, Manchester United entered the next round of the Europa League, in which they will face Copenaghe, who comes from eliminating Basaksehir from Turkey.
