Under the rules of UEFA, the upcoming matches will take place on the home team of the second leg. This means, United will have LASK welcome screen at Old Trafford. With the current level of sublimation, Man United seems to have secured the ticket to go on.

These two teams are not too difficult opponents for teachers and coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. If you play the right ability, Man United can fully advance in this year’s tournament.
Remarkably, because Man United is not in the same branch with Inter Milan, a dream final can happen. Man United’s opponents in the semi-finals [assuming the right to go forward] are just one of the four teams of Olympiakos, Wolves, Sevilla or AS Roma.

Man Utd was almost certain of the quarterfinals, after crushing LASK 5-0 in the first leg on Austria in mid-March. That match, Odion Ighalo opened the score. This was before Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira scored to help the former team win.
Another English team, Wolves, also has many opportunities to continue. In the first leg on Greek soil, they drew Olympiakos 1-1. Wolves are phenomenal in the English Premier League this season, standing sixth – right below Man Utd. If they win the right to continue, they will face Sevilla or Roma.
