Manchester United is presented with another opportunity to turn their season around when they face Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League group stage match. Man U’s season was embodied by their lacklustre display in the Premier League this past weekend when they fell to a single goal from their academy product Joshua King against AFC Bournemouth. The Red Devils are top of group L after three games played, winning two and drawing one match.
A win in Thursday’s match can bring United closer to earning passage into the next round of the European competition. They sit at the top with seven points, with a two-point lead to second place Alkmaar Zaanstreek of Holland. United cannot risk losing this match against Partizan as they sit third place with a three-point difference. A win with a two-goal difference can lift the Serbian club above the former EPL champions.
Manchester United vs Partizan Preview
Manchester United have struggled to find a regular scorer this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the management at the club chose to splurge on the services of defenders Harry Maguire and Arron Wan-Bissaka in the preseason. Injuries to French international Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have also meant that Man U does not have a supply of assists in attacking options at the club.
Despite all of this, bookmakers still believe that the Red Devils have enough in their arsenal to win their game against the Serbs at Old Trafford. The Theatre of Dreams no longer holds the same lustre it used to when the stadium frightened oppositions. Partizan has no room to flounder, with their passage to the knockout stages in their hands.
