The Red Devils are looking to find a breath of fresh air after three straight games in which they heavily disappointed their fans. The Europa League is not the top priority for United, but as time goes by, it just might become. Things are not looking good in the Premiership, and Ole’s team might have to look another way towards the Champions League. AZ, on the other, hand, is a very talented team who likes to play offensive football and rest assured that they aren’t going to back down against the English titan.

AZ has five straight games in which they haven’t lost, posting four wins and a draw. This team has only one loss since the season started, counting all the competitions, and it appears that they have several massive talents in their squad who are about to make noise on the European market. AZ has a really good attack, and in those five games, only once they couldn’t score two or more goals. On the other side, the latest three events finished without them conceding. The Dutch team plays its international matches away from home, because of the stadium reconstruction, but for now, that didn’t have.

United disappointed once again against Arsenal this Monday. Only a 1-1 draw wasn’t something they’ve hoped for. After a disappointing performance against Rochdale in the English Football League Cup and a loss against West Ham in London, things are starting to look very bad for Ole Gunnar Solkjaer. The Norwegian manager is under heavy pressure, and right now it seems that he might be the first one in the Premiership to lose his job. Latest three games the Red Devils played all ended with a moderate efficiency, meaning 2 or 3 goals, and it was obvious that they had problems with executing. Marcus Rashford simply misses too many chances, which is, in this case, hurting his team a lot.

Team News

AZ doesn’t have any problems with its lineup, and all the players will be ready to host United.

Meanwhile, the situation is devastating for United. Bailly, Fos-Mensah, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all out. Luke Shaw is doubtful, and the same goes for Gomes and Dalot, but the latter two probably won’t play this Thursday.

AZ to win the Europa League Group L


Having in mind AZ’s style of play, which is highly aggressive and offensive, we believe that at least three goals in this match are inevitable. They will try to attack the big rival, knowing that if they win, it would be a huge success for them. And it seems that beating Manchester United now is easier than any time since the start of this decade. That approach will, for sure open a lot of space for both teams and make this game highly efficient. Betway has a nice offer for all of you who would like to bet on this. The odds they give are 4/5.

Our second pick will require both sides to score. Because of all the above mentioned, seeing both AZ and United hitting the back of the net at least once is pretty realistic, which is why we are recommending that bet. The odds are quite solid, and the best on the market are at bet365, 7/10.
