The Manchester United solidify themselves for a comeback to the Europa League as they welcome the FC Astana to kick of the fixture. The Red Devils middle campaign rush towards the Premier League top 4 coming from their sudden end last season, and their destructive finish to the league tournament saw them ruined for the Champions League qualifiers. As a result, in placing them in 6th place they are going to back in the Europa League and with so much value on a top-flight this season and we would expect some tough rotation from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this campaign. It was an interesting start of the season for Manchester United, they dominated Chelsea with 4 – 0, however, the full-time scorecard was really impressive for the winners in the end. In addition, there were 2 draws against Southampton and Wolver then a disappointing defeat at their home soil against Crystal Palace. After the loss, they got a comeback win against Leicester City at the weekend, while their tough performance shows a lot of edge at the back.

Undeniably, the Red Devil’s top concern on this season has seeking the final item, and the problem is showing in their scoring table, it was a low scoring affair because they only netted 4 times coming from their last 4 matches. We could say that Astana doesn’t show a threat to Manchester United back in line. The visitors have only qualified for the first time in 2013 and made an exit out of the group tables. FC Astana has five losses coming from their nine Europa League group table on the road games and only won 2 times. On that performance in the campaign they tend to keep a good tight ship at the backline, they just conceded 11 goals coming from their last 10 Europa League on the road games.
