Manchester United vs Astana
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Manchester United will be hosting the reigning champions of the Kazakhstan Premier League. The United dugout was sixth in the last season of the Premier League. They did go through embarrassing defeat against Crystal Palace at home lately but came back with a win against Leicester in the previous home match.
FC Astana will be coming in with their reigning title, but they have no chance against such a stronger side from a superior league like EPL. They have lost only one game in their past five matches overall and were promoted to Europa after defeating BATE on an aggregate 3-2. Their previous clash was in their respective league and they came out with a win in the end.
It will be a match of sheer dominance by Ole’s boys but we can see whether the visitors can give a hardship to the host.
Manchester United vs Astana Head-to-head (h2h)
The teams have not faced each other before.
Manchester United vs Astana Prediction
The Red Devils have faced defeat only once in the last five home matches and that too was a narrow win, giving up goals in the last minutes of the game. The home team has played against big guns in the major competitions and have big names on the bench. Also, the visiting side has not faced many strong teams before and will be devoid of experience in big leagues having come from an inferior league.
The home team has scored 10 goals from the previous five home games. Alongside that, they have scored in the last five games in overall fixtures. So there are more chances to expect a high scoring affair in the upcoming match.
Moreover, the guest has won only four of the last ten away games from various leagues. Along with that, the Red Devils have to wipe off their loss at home and will not settle for anything less than a win. Henceforth with their current form and the weak opponents, Manchester United will have eyes on the three points.
