Manchester United, England, will visit Austria’s Lask Linz team at 17:55 on Thursday, in the first leg of the 16th round of the European Championship, in the match that will bring the two teams to the “Linzer” stadium.
Austrian Lask Linz announced the establishment of its confrontation against Manchester United, by going to the round of 16 of the European Championship “Europalige” without a public presence.
The decision of the local authorities in Austria to hold a confrontation without masses came in light of the outbreak of the Corona virus in a number of European countries, which led to decisions to freeze activity in Italy, or to establish games without fans in other countries.
Manchester United managed to qualify for the round of 16 from Europalige, after overtaking the Belgian club Bruges, by a score of 1 – 1, in the total of the home and away matches, while Lask Lins team, at the expense of the Dutch Alkmaar team, by 3-1.
Tonight’s match is the first that brought the two teams to the level of European competitions, as United have played 8 games previously against Austrian teams, winning 7 games and drawing in one match.
The Red Devils team enters the game tonight with high spirits, after achieving victory over its neighbor Manchester City, in Derby, with a clean double, last Sunday, in the 29th round of the English Premier League.
