Jose Mourinho's side should have too many guns for Feyenoord in Thursday's Europa League clash.
Man Utd v Feyenoord – Thursday 20:05, BT Sport 2
Man United will be gunning for the win and nothing else in their tussle against Feyenoord this Thursday as they chase the knockout stages of the Europa League. An under-strength United outfit looked toothless in their away game in the Netherlands, and as pressure mounts on Jose Mourinho, Feyenoord will have their eye on the upset as they travel to Old Trafford.
Mourinho has said that out-of-favour midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be involved in the midweek tussle and Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from suspension, but scrutiny will be on Mourinho’s tactical decisions after he called his side ‘the unluckiest team in the Premier League’.
They’re unbeaten at home in the post-Ferguson era with 10 wins from 13 matches although their dismal effort away against a spirited Fenerbahçe side will prey on many supporters’ minds. Feyenoord won convincingly at home against PEC Zwolle at the weekend, but were held to a draw by minnows Zorya last time out in Europe.
Dutch teams have a dreadful record in away European group games against English teams: since 2006/07 they’ve gone W0-D4-L7 with five defeats by more than one goal and four have been Half-Time/Full-Time loss/losses. With that and Man United’s home European record in mind, we’re backing the hosts in the Half -Time/Full-Time market.
