Manchester United v FC Zorya Luhansk Preview, UEFA Europa League, Group A, 29th September 2016.

Have Manchester United recovered from their recent blip having lost twice in the Premier League and Europa League against Feyenoord? The away win in the League Cup to Northampton Town wasn’t the best of performances in the first half yet did prove to be far better in the second half of the game. Then came the home win to the Champions Leicester City with Manchester United going into the break 4 – 0 up.

The game did end 4 – 1 at full time but what we have to note is that Manchester United looked incredible and very much like the United team of old. We do of course see the home side here as the bookmakers clear favourites and I can only imagine United will want to come back fighting in this competition with a solid win against FC Zorya Luhansk who themselves sit above United in the Group A table.

That’s not exactly anything to shout home about though as the club will surely beaten easily on Thursday night? But can we really say that as FC Zorya Luhansk did give Fenerbahce a tough game in their opening game of this Europa League competition. Since that 1 – 1 draw FC Zorya Luhansk have gone on to win two league matches and currently sit second in their domestic league table.

FC Zorya Luhansk have another tough game in the Europa League next when they pay visit to Feyenoord who recently beat Manchester United at home and if they do manage a win could see themselves move forward for a possible qualifying position. In the clubs domestic league they could close the five point gap on Shakhtar Donetsk although will require a solid away win if they wish to make that possible.

Manchester United Team News :

Manchester United will once again likely see club captain Wayne Rooney on the bench but this time due to the fact the striker is recovering from a bad back. We already know that the veteran Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is to start with young Rashford very likely to either start or play an important part of the match. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is missing although is back in training, while Luke Shaw sits out with an illness. We do also see the return of Anthony Martial.

FC Zorya Luhansk Team News :

Although we can’t find any team information on the Ukrainian side they have done well in their last eleven European games played. So far they have scored in ten of these eleven match with a total of twenty goals. It’s been nearly a year since Manchester United have kept a clean sheet in Europe so surely this could give FC Zorya Luhansk some much needed hope come Thursday.

Manchester United v FC Zorya Luhansk  Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Europa League action this Thursday night comes live from the beautiful ground of Old Trafford where Manchester United play hosts to Ukrainian side FC Zorya Luhansk for the first time in history. It will be the third club Manchester United have played from Ukraine and are as expected the clear and solid favourites to win this game by the bookmakers and all pundits.

With Manchester United beating the English Champions Leicester City at the weekend, they will come into this match in high spirits and look to bounce back from their opening loss to Feyenoord. Recently they have progressed into the next round of the League Cup having beaten Northampton Town, and then completely embarrassing Leicester City with four goals scored by United in the first half.

FC Zorya Luhansk are a side who are playing well in their domestic league and currently sit in second place just five points behind the league leaders. They also managed to draw against tough side Fenerbahce 1 – 1 in their first game of the competition, but could they really compete against a side such as Manchester United who have so much experience in Europe?

My predictions for this game is to favour that of Manchester United to win, yet it will be how that will allow the odds to increase. Its a tough one really but for my enhanced odds banker bet I am going to go for the youngster Rashford to score 2 or more goals during the match. The next I am going to go for is for Paul Pogba to continue from Sunday and score another, while also for Manchester United to win.
