AZ Alkmaar vs Manchester United Prediction and Preview: United to kick on in Europe
AZ Alkmaar vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips for 03/10/19 Europa League fixture at 5:55 pm. United’s wretched league form can be put to one side as they look for their second win in Europe.
Manchester United’s Premier League woes have their fans worried but a solid win against AZ should alleviate those somewhat. There is news that the pitch is in a terrible state for tonight’s match so that might influence the result, but Solskaer’s men should still be good enough to get a hard-fought victory.
AZ Alkmaar vs Manchester United Preview: 03/10/19 Europa League
AZ Alkmaar sit in third place in the Eredivisie. No side have conceded fewer goals in the Dutch topflight and they trail PSV and Ajax by just one point. Their only loss this season came at the hands of Vitesse Arnhem who are currently fourth. The Dutch side drew 1-1 with Partizan Belgrade two weeks ago.
Manchester United have made of the worst starts to a campaign in their Premier League history. The Red Devils are tenth in the league and are struggling for goals. They have scored just nine goals in seven games and have only won one of their last six games.
Can United scrape past AZ?
It’s been a testing period for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Marcus Rashford has been rushed back from injury with Anthony Martial still side-lined and now 18-year-old, Mason Greenwood the only other option. AZ defensive record suggests they will frustrate United, particularly at home. This should be a tight contest with few goals. Under 1.5 goals is priced at 11/4 and that goes down as the first of tonight’s AZ v Man United betting tips. The terrible pitch should help our cause with this bet.
Mason Greenwood to make the breakthrough
The young United forward scored his first goal for the club two weeks ago when they faced Astana in the Europa League. He then added to his tally the following week in a League Cup fixture against Rochdale. With United’s injury problems and Rashford having started on Monday night against Arsenal, Greenwood may be trusted from the off against AZ. He is an exciting prospect who looks lively whenever he’s played. Greenwood is 6/1 to score the first goal of the game.
If you use Grosvenor Sport for the first time tonight you will get the odds on your first bet doubled, so instead of getting 6/1 for Greenwood to score the first goal, you’ll get 12/1.
AZ Alkmaar vs Manchester United Score Prediction – Manchester United to win 1-0
United’s team on paper should be able to beat AZ Alkmaar. However, football is not played on paper and there are clearly internal issues at Old Trafford. Nevertheless, The Red Devils should have just enough to squeeze past their Dutch opponents. 1-0 is priced at 15/2 and that completes the betting tips for tonight’s fixture.
