Match status: 2019-20 Europa League Group Stages
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester)

The home side are enjoying the view from the top of the standings, having garnered ten points from five games. Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar are hot on the tails of the Red Devils, sitting just a single point adrift the English giants in second place.

This is a clash between two teams who have already clinched spots at the knockout stages of the tournament but are determined to finish at the summit.

Expect an exciting and enthralling encounter at Old Trafford between these very good sides, as the visitors attempt to salvage a major upset against this phenomenal Man United team.

Manchester United vs AZ Alkmaar Team News

Last time out in the Europa League, Manchester United admitted their first defeat in the competition to lowly Astana, much to the dismay of the club’s supporters. Despite taking the lead early on, complacency set in, causing them to give a wide berth to their one-goal advantage before the end of the game.

Astana scored two quick-fire goals towards full-time to clinch maximum points against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. Despite the loss, the home side remained top of the group but saw their lead cut-down to just one measly point. 

Be that as it may, Manchester United are still heavily tipped to top the cluster and that, for good reason. Enduring a difficult November, this month seems a lot kinder to Solskjaer’s side, having led the Red Devils to a stellar two-game winning streak, back in the Premier League.

Those two victories have come against difficult oppositions in the form of Tottenham Hotspur and reigning champions Manchester City. Winning 2-1 in each of those games, confidence seems to be sky-high within the club’s dressing room. These players are raring to go again.

AZ Alkmaar, on the other hand, are not showing any signs of slowing down either, having recorded back-to-back wins in their last two games. Also, this Dutch outfit are unbeaten in their preceding three Europa League fixtures.

Their most recent game saw them hold Partizan Belgrade to a 2-2 draw in front of the home support. The Cheeseheads have not admitted defeat in any of their trips in Europe this season, a very important stat heading into this game.

The record books prove the quality the visitors possess within their ranks. However, grabbing a victory over this star-studded Manchester United side might be a difficult ask for the visitors. European football experience as well as home advantage should be enough to see the hosts through this game.

Though AZ Alkmaar have maintained a sturdy defense this season, recording seven clean sheets from their past ten games, it will be almost impossible to keep the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial at bay for the entirety of the match.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Man United: Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, Diogo Dalot, Marcos Rojo.

AZ Alkmaar: Albert Gudmundsson, Pantelis Hatzidiakos, Myron Boadu.

Man United vs AZ Alkmaar Predictions

Manchester United are in superb form in the Premier League at the moment, edging out Spurs and cross-town rivals Man City in their last two games. The players are buzzing with confidence and are playing at the highest quality.

However, given they will be coming up against Everton on Sunday, Solskjaer is likely to hand rests to some of the club’s key players, fielding a second-string United side in the process.

As such, a win is not totally guaranteed for the hosts. A draw or a narrow-win backing Manchester United seem the safest punt heading into this game. This United team should prove too strong for Arne Slot’s side.
