Today we are going to present you a match from Group L of Round 2 of Europa League. The battle between AZ Alkmaar and Manchester United is set to start at 17:55 GMT 0 at Cars Jeans Stadion in Den Haag.
AZ Alkmaar team preview
AZ Alkmaar has been the nice surprise in Eredivisie so far, recording 6 wins, 1 draw and only 1 loss out of 8 games with a goal difference of 18-3. The hosts play eye-catching attacking football with great focus on the attack as implementing 4-3-3 as their main formation. During the 1st round of Europa League, they won a point in the away game against Partizan but they were unfortunate to play almost a half with 10 men. We are sure that this team of AZ is capable of causing some problems to this unconvincing version of Manchester United.
Manchester United squad news
What can we say about the Red Devils? If we should sound a little more delicate, let’s say they have been in a “transition period” this season. There were some changes during the summer and it seems that many players of the current squad are set to leave sooner or later. The points that United has won so far in the Premier League are not the worst thing. Their performance has been terrible and it does not suit to a great club like United. Improvement is needed and patience is what Red Devils supporters need in turn. We think that Europa League is not the top priority for United this season. Finishing in the top 6 would be the main goal.
