After a 146-day break, Manchester United are back in European action.

But how do you approach what is effectively a dead rubber in betting terms? Very carefully is the answer!

United lead the Europa League Round of 16 tie with LASK Linz 5-0 from the first leg, the last match both sides played before lockdown.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side are a prohibitive odds on 2/9 , with LASK a huge 12/1 to score a shock victory.

LASK will name a full strength line up, Solskjaer says he will select a side similar to the one which built that resounding first leg lead.

But while there is little motivation to win the match, those players have plenty to prove to their manager.

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 3/4 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 21/10 with  thepools.com  is also worth considering.

There were nine corners in Austria and five yellow cards and if you fancy a repeat of that thepools.com's special offer below is worth considering at 9/5 .

The Austrians actually have a decent away record in the Europa League this season - drawing at AZ and PSV and beating Rosenborg - and have scored in 26 consecutive Bundesliga games on the road.

So with 10-days ring rust to shake off and a much changed line up the thepools.com offer 7/4 for both teams to score and either side to win .

Odion Ighalo opened the scoring in Austria and he is 3/1 to repeat the feat tonight.
