Partizan Belgrade vs Manchester United Prediction
The hosts are currently at the top of Group L, having surpassed the Red Devils on goal difference. Their most recent clash across Europe saw them come out on top with a narrow 2-1 win over FC Astana, while their only other matchup, which was against Alkmaar, ended in a 2-2 draw.
Be that as it may, it looks like Savo Milosevic’s men are experiencing a sharp decline in form. The squad have been recording back to back defeats in the league, the last of which was at home. They have also had a taste of success just once in their previous three games in all competitions.
On the other hand, Manchester United will be making the trip to Belgrade this week, having brought European Champions Liverpool’s winning streak to a close, back in the Premier League. Despite being much the better side in that latter fixture, a late goal from Adam Lallana saved their counterpart’s blushes.
Furthermore, the visitors have got off to an unbeaten start in their respective Europa League fixtures as well. As far as away statistics go, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men have been at the losing end twice in their previous five outings.
However, to their defense, it needs saying that both of those defeats came against top-flight sides in the premier league. Also, the home team feature in a far less competitive domestic campaign and are just not used to taking on teams of this stature.
With Wan Bissaka and Martial also back to full fitness, Manchester United are sizing up to be the favorites to walk away with all three points in this one.
Additionally, racking up goals has just not been the Red Devils cup of tea, especially on the road. The away side have found the back of the net just twice in their last five outings overall.
Given that the visitors are also yet to concede in the Europa so far, count on the English outfit to wrap things up with under 2.5 goals on the charts.
