Astana vs Manchester United Preview

For all United’s struggles this season, the Europa League has actually provided something positive for the Red Devils to look back on.

Indeed, three of their seven normal-time victories this season have come in this competition with Solskjaer’s decision to rely on young players like Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams seemingly paying off so far.

That being said, United have still only managed five goals in the competition – three of which were scored against Partizan Belgrade last time out – whilst Astana have scored just a solitary goal.

Astana vs Manchester United Tips and Predictions

Neither team, then, have exactly impressed in front of goal so far and so opposing both teams to score at 6/5 (2.20) looks the way to go in Kazakhstan on Thursday afternoon.

As well, United are yet to concede in the Europa League this season and should have few problems keeping out a team that have had only six shots on target in the competition – the lowest total in the group stage so far.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
