Manchester United vs Partizan Belgrade
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
With no other squad from the top five leagues present in the group, the Red Devils are easily the favorites to end up toppers of the lot. They have so far done justice to the objective as well. While their scoring in the competition has not been up to the expected levels, their backline has been solid.
One thing United fans will be eagerly looking forward to is the news about their gaffer. There’s widespread anticipation that, after Bayern sacked their manager, Niko Kovac, rest of the European heavyweights with under-par performances this season, will follow suit.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did a great job as the interim manager. But once his contract was finalized, levels were dropped, and ever since, the once-mighty team is struggling to perform well. In that regard, this upcoming fixture against a minnow is of great importance for the Norwegian.

Manchester United vs Partizan Belgrade Prediction
First and foremost, the Manchester outfit comes from arguably the best league in the world whereas their opponents take part in the Serbian SuperLiga. On top of that, the Black-Whites have lost three of their preceding five league fixtures, and their last two overall road games as well.
To pile on, they are on the road, and at the Old Trafford of all places. In addition, for what it’s worth, Ole’s men seem to have slightly picked up form as of now. Disregarding their loss against Bournemouth, they were on a three-game winning run. And in the process even defeated the 2016-17 PL champions, Chelsea.
Going on, they also inflicted a loss upon this same opponent in the sole h2h clash and kept a clean sheet to increment the value of that victory.
Adding on, United is unbeaten in their prior five appearances in front of the home crowd and was so in ten of their past eleven. Finally, with them on a scoring streak of eleven home games, the chances for this game to end in a home win are very high.
