Manchester United are likely to play the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie against LASK behind closed doors, according to reports in Austria. 
Mainland Europe is working to arrest the spread of coronavirus with sporting events across the world affected Amid the crisis, Italy have declared a country-wide lockdown with 9,000 cases. 
United are scheduled to take on LASK on Thursday at the Linzer Stadion and Austrian outlet Kronen Zeitung claim that game will virtually be played behind closed doors.
Austrian health minister Rudolf Anschober announced at a press conference on Tuesday new country-wide measures against coronavirus, saying: ‘All outdoor events with over 500 people, 100 indoor, will be cancelled until mid-April.’ 
Uefa have not confirmed if the cancelled events will include the LASK game, but Austrian media continue to say a maximum of 500 spectators are expected to be granted access to the ground if the match goes ahead.
