AZ and Manchester United
Cars Jeans Stadion in Den Haag will host the Europa League from Group L between AZ and Manchester United. We advice you to stay with us because we will spend few minutes to discuss this fixture in our Europa League predictions for today.
Let’s begin with the visitors. Manchester United had a tough first game against Astana in the group, but they managed to secure the win at the Old Trafford. It happened thanks to the talented teenager Mason Greenwood, who scored the only goal against Astana. In this match the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave a chance to some young lads. Mason Greenwood scored the winner, while Axel Tuanzebe, Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong also found a place in the starting eleven. Some of them might start against AZ as well.
For United this game on Dutch soil comes just few days after the derby against Arsenal in the Premier League. The Red Devils hosted the Gunners at the Old Trafford, but they missed this opportunity to win. Scott McTominay opened the score for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, but Aubameyang equalised for the Londoners.
AZ made a strategic 2-2 draw against Serbian giants Partizan in their first game in this group. It was a very difficult game for the Dutch side in Belgrade, because AZ’s Jonas Svensson was sent off after just 27 minutes of playing. Despite of this, AZ managed to “steal” a point with goals from Calvin Stengs and Myron Boadu.
We won’t surprise you in our Europa League predictions for today by telling you that we consider Manchester United a slight favourite against AZ. But in same time, we advice you to be careful about this bet, because most likely Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will put some young lads on the pitch in Den Haag. This will give AZ some realistic chance to win a point or three.
