After the opening two rounds, Partizan and Manchester United are at the top spot of the Europa League’s Group L. Partizan is desperately searching for at least one point from this match in order to secure its position before the decisive contests for the advance to the knockout stage. Solskjaer and United want to come back from Belgrade without any injuries and any other complications, and if they can, with win all three points. For the Norwegian, the Premier League is the priority at the moment.
Partizan lost the last game in the domestic championship after allowing the rivals just one shot on goal. Meanwhile, the black and whites had 21 of them. This has been a key problem for Savo Milosevic’s boys since the season started. AZ Alkmaar got away with a draw from Belgrade, although the hosts should have buried them when looking at the number of goal opportunities. The match versus Mladost, which Partizan lost, was the first one following four straight, which ended with under 2.5 goals. In general, this team plays very offensive and attractive football. They often concede goals but also score a lot of them.
A lot of things in this match depend on Solskjaer’s starting lineup. We see that several big stars aren’t coming to Belgrade, but still, we could see Rashford and several others on the pitch. If that happens, be sure that the Red Devils’ chances of taking the whole three points here are dramatically increased. United’s schedule in the next two weeks is very tough, and Solskjaer could mix the lineup here a lot. The game against Liverpool was the ninth in a row, which ended with under 2.5 goals. However, it was also the sixth one in which United couldn’t win after 90 minutes, and that is something that pretty much frustrates the fans. At the moment, he is under a hell of pressure from all sides, and a good result is a must. P.S. United hasn’t scored on the previous three road events.

Partizan will play without the former Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic who suffered a major injury and will be out for the rest of this year.
The situation in United is awful. Lingard and Baillya re definitely out, same as Nemanja Matic. Diogo Dalot and Pau Pogba are questionable, while Luke Shaw should be in the protocol.
This won’t be a match like we used to see when United plays. Expect an offensive approach from the hosts who will attack the Red Devils. Having in mind that the guests have higher individual quality, we can see them responding with the same measure, which will create an exciting game to watch. The first pick we have for you here is over 2.5 goals. Partizan will score, have no doubt about it, but they will concede at least one goal on Thursday night. Their defence is not so sparkling. Bet365’s odds for this are 11/10.
We would go with over 1.5 goals in the second half. The hosts are often increasing the tempo in the second 45 minutes, and they tend to overexpose their defence in that period. That approach should create an environment suitable for plenty of goals. Manchester’s arrival in Belgrade after more than 50 years will be a spectacle for the hosts, and they will try to do everything to impress their fans and meet the occasion. The odds for this one are similar to the ones for the previous pick and are at 6/5.
