FC Astana vs Manchester United Betting Tips & Predictions
Manchester United might not be pulling up any trees in Europe this season although they have quietly gone about their business in the Europa League and ten points already on the board means they are through to the knockout round of the competition.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might therefore be slightly reluctant to take some of his key players to Kazakhstan for a fairly meaningless clash, with the Red Devils looking ahead to a busy December fixture schedule which includes impending clashes with Tottenham and Manchester City.
Nevertheless, Mason Greenwood will embrace the chance to shine once again and it was the striker who scored the winner in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford, with the England forward also bagging against Partizan recently.
Axel Tuanzebe and Jesse Lingard also came off the bench at Bramall Lane on Sunday and are likely to be involved in this match, while Phil Jones will marshal the defence for this clash as United look to register another victory.
It’s worth noting that the English side haven’t conceded a goal during the group stage of the competition and it’s hard to see Astana making much of an impact considering that they have lost all four of their Europa League clashes.
Most recently, Astana were thrashed 5-0 at home to AZ Alkmaar and this could be an opportunity for a bunch of United youngsters to shine, with nineteen-year-old Brandon Williams having recently broken into the first team.
Sergio Romero is a safe pair of hands between the sticks for these sort of games and they way in which Astana have conceded 11 goals against AZ recently illustrates that there is likely to be a gulf in class when the two teams meet.
You can get a far bigger price about United winning to nil compared to the actual match odds and we’re happy to take a punt.
Manchester United win to nil @ 3.50 (5/2) with bet365
