The last against the first occurs at Astana against Manchester United. For the Kazakhs the qualification with zero points already went. Even in front of home scenery, where the unfamiliar artificial turf often helped in the past, there were only bankruptcies – most recently in the form of a 0-5 swatter against Alkmaar.

The Dutch are again the worst pursuers of the Reds. Currently, the British have two points ahead, which is why the group victory is not yet in a dry towel. However, Manchester will not play in the game with excessive motivation.
In the final home game against the representative from the Eredivisie, the first place can still be sealed.
For the encounter between Astana and Manchester United, the tip aims to ensure that the guests do not lose and fall a maximum of four goals. The Kazakh champion has only scored in all four matches in the qualifying round and Manchester, as I said, will want to save power, as the ticket for the second round is already solved.
In addition, the Elf of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer in the Europa League is also quite stingy with their own goals. It was just five years ago.
Astana – Statistics & Current Form
In the past, FK Astana was often able to build on its mentioned home strength on European podium. For example, when participating in the Champions League sometimes top teams such as Atletico Madrid or Galatasaray were unbuttoned a draw.
In the previous year, majority victories were also achieved during the group stage of the Europa League. But this season the home advantage is gone. First was lost to Partizan Belgrade and then continued the described 0-5 defeat against Alkmaar.
Since on top the two away games in the Netherlands as well as the coming opponent ended in a defeat, the knockout phase is no longer achievable. This is nothing new for the team of coach Roman Hryhortschuk. Never before has the group phase survived in the Champions or Europa League.
The upcoming match therefore has no value for the hosts from a sporting perspective. With 14 goals in only four games and their own goal, the Kazakh deficits in all parts of the team are strong. At least in the domestic league there was reason to celebrate earlier this month.
Here was already on the penultimate round by a win at Tobol, the sixth championship in a row retracted. For the time being, the last match against Ertis Pavlodar was lost at home.
For the kicker from Astana, however, the end of the championship results in the additional problem that a normal competitive rhythm is no longer given. For more than two weeks no game was on the program, which suffers from the tension in the team.
From this perspective, it is also understandable why the Astana against Manchester United odds in favor of the guests.
Expected formation of Astana:
➠ Eric – Postnikov – Logvinenko – Shomko – Rukavina – Tomasov – Pertsukh – Meavskiy – Beysebekov – Rotariu – Khizhnichenko

Manchester United – Statistics & Current Form
For Manchester, the trip to Kazakhstan is nothing more than a chore. For the self-image of the proud club, the Europa League is an unloved competition anyway.
But it does not help. Because in the previous year only the sixth place in the Premier League jumped out, the qualification for the Champions League was missed. The lack of motivation of the players for the Europa League was also evident in the previous performances.
Except for the 3-0 home win in the last match at home against Partizan Belgrade the performances of the British were tough. Previously, just two goals were scored in three games. Nevertheless, the quality of the squad is so high that no game was lost and instead three wins and a draw could be achieved.
With another three against Astana the group victory would already be bagged. In the dress rehearsal last Sunday night, a 3: 3 was accomplished at Sheffield United. In the table of the Premier League, the British record champion, last in 2013, due to a historically weak start remains only in ninth place.
In addition, the MUFC continues to suffer considerable injury concerns. In the well-stocked military hospital can be found various regular players such as the Frenchman Paul Pogba or Scot Scott McTomay.
Expected lineup of Manchester United:
➠ de Gea – Maguire – Lindelöf – Wan-Bissaka – Williams – Fred – James – Pereira – Lingard – Rashford – Martial
Last matches from Manchester United:
⚽️ 24.11.2019 – Sheffield United Vs. Manchester United 3: 3 (Premier League)

Astana vs Manchester United Free Betting Tips
On the one hand, the last-placed host with no more chances and on the other hand, the million troops from Manchester, who arrives as a table leader. Guests will probably be glad that at least the roof in the Astana Arena can be closed, given the current double-digit low temperatures in the capital of Kazakhstan.
Otherwise, Manchester will probably tackle the compulsory appointment with little motivation. The group victory is not tied yet, but already a draw would be enough to reach the playoffs in the final group match against a backdrop of home crowd against Alkmaar with a threesome.
Key facts – Astana vs Manchester United tips
💡 Astana takes the last place in the group without a point
💡 Manchester United are leaders (3-1-0)
💡 The first leg ended with a 1-0 home win by the Red Devils
The home side have in turn lost their former trump in the shape of their home strength. Both previous home games were lost and this last crashed with a 0: 5 against Alkmaar.
In the duel between Astana and Manchester United, the prediction therefore includes the double chance for the guests and less than four goals in the game. For few goals speak several points. Foremost among these is the offensive weakness of the hosts, who previously landed only one goal.
However, Manchester are struggling with scoring in the Europa League. So the average is a meager 1.25 per game. On the other hand, not a single goal has yet been collected. In addition, the British are missing again some players and as mentioned, the motivation for the game is anyway expandable.
Rather, the expected commitment to the Red Devils in frosty Kazakhstan can be described as “We are stars, get us out of here”. A shooter festival on the part of the winner of the Europa League 2017 is definitely not off.
