Astana vs Manchester United – Europa League:The Kazakh side is in last place of this group with only losses
They have conceded 14 goals in 4 matches (with AZ scoring 11 goals against them) and they’ve scored 1 on the reception to Partizan. At Old Trafford, the result was a flattering 1-0 for the hosts. There are no important absences to point out here.
The English side comes into this match already qualified for the next stage, having 10 points conquered with a total of 5 goals scored and 0 goals conceded.
Actually, the fact that the Red Devils haven’t conceded any goal so far makes them the best defence in the European competitions, since we are speaking about the only team that always kept a clean sheet on UEFA competitions.
The absences for this encounter aren’t very relevant because the Norwegian manager called up several reserves and a lot of young players instead of their usual starters.
We have a funny encounter here and the bookmakers have been kind of struggling to set the lines for it. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted for an unusual list of called-up players.
Therefore, we might have a starting 11 with some players that will inclusively be making their debut for the main team – the wing back Luke Shaw could also be making his return to the team after several months absent.
However, I don’t see great problems on this, even because this Astana is light-years away from that team that played in the Champions League a couple of years ago.
In fact, I’m even struggling to understand how they’ve reached the group stage of this competition – although there are several other teams with very little quality in the other groups as well, but whatever.
I had the opportunity, on the last round, to watch the entire 2nd half of their match against AZ and I’ve also watched the full highlights of the match against Partizan.

Astana vs Manchester United – Betting Tips: :
The conclusion I’ve reached is very simple: there is not tactic or idea capable of saving this side when they are facing the other teams of this group (we also have to say that it wasn’t the best of draws for them either!). In fact, there is a lack of individual quality and consequently, their collective quality also suffers. Even with a 2nd or 3rd team from Man United, not very routine, but with the will to show their worth, I see a lot of value on these odds! For the more cautious ones, the DNB is also a very good option. The final result I’m expecting is a low-scoring affair, maybe a 0-1 or 0-2!
