Manchester United ran riot on Fenerbahce on match day 3, they hit them 4-1 as Van Persia returned to Old Trafford. Now they will travel to Istanbul for the second league of the fixture in match day 4 of the Europa League.
Manchester United are now on the good path in the Europa League, they have won 2 successive games. They are currently in the 2nd spot in the table with 6 points, same points as Feyenoord in the first spot. United knows that a win in this game will possibly keep them floating in the top spot, but a defeat will keep them behind Fenerbahce in the table.
The last time Fenerbahce hosted the Red Devils at Istanbul, they ended the game with smiles on their faces. The fans went home happy that night as they defeated Manchester United 3-0 that night. Can Fenerbahce repeat that result in Match Day 4? That’s a question we can’t answer easily. Fenerbahce are behind United in the group table with 4 points to their name, they have won 1 drawn 1 and lost 1 game so far.
