Match Preview & Team News
Manchester United and AZ Alkmaar will determine the Group L winner when they take on each other in the last round tie on Thursday evening at the Old Trafford. The Red Devils are in a better situation being one point above the Dutch opposition meaning anything but a defeat would secure them a somewhat easier path in the last 32 round of the competition.
United come into the game on the back of two huge wins
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed the best moments of his Manchester United reign in the last couple of weeks. The team took the maximum six points from two extremely tough domestic league fixtures against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. Marcus Rashford was the main catalyst netting three of the team’s four goals in these victories, but he will likely be rested for the more important clash against Everton on Sunday. The Norwegian manager will generally rotate his squad here.
AZ saved themselves at the death in the previous round
The visitors were on the brink of an abyss two weeks ago when they looked powerless in the home fixture against Partizan Belgrade. They entered the final five minutes with a two-goal deficit and one man down, but managed to bag two super-late goals through substitute striker Ferdy Druijf. His goals kept the team four points clear off the Serbian side ahead of the final round fixtures.
AZ are doing great in the elite class of the Dutch football, though. They claimed six consecutive clean sheet wins there, including a 0-4 drubbing of PSV in Eindhoven. Alkmaar are just three points away from the Eredivisie leaders Ajax after a 0-3 drubbing of PEC Zwolle at the weekend.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
