How much trouble are Manchester United in the Europa League? Well they will be in stacks of it if they lose at home against Feyenoord on Thursday night at Old Trafford. If they suffer a loss and group leaders Fenerbahce also win their group match on the night, then Manchester United will be suffering the embarrassment of not even having made it out of the group stage in UEFA’s second tier competition. That would be a major blow for the club financially.
The Red Devils produced a really limp and lifeless performance out in Rotterdam on Match Day One in the group against Feyenoord and lost 1-0. So now they have to pick up the pieces and a draw doesn’t really guarantee them anything so they have to come out and push for the three points to give themselves a more comfortable ride to the knockout stage of the competition. Can they get it done, despite having won just three of the last nine games across all competitions?
They are 4/11 favourites for the match as they have gone unbeaten in their last seven games at Old Trafford though and their other two home games in the group they have taken clean sheet victory over Zorya and Fenerbahce so they should still be in with a shot at this. The Red Devils are on a good unbeaten streak of 13 games at home in European competition and they are taking on Feyenoord who have fallen out of form away from home as well. So the could be some Europa League light at the end of the tunnel in this one.
Feyenoord have failed to win in any of their three away games this season (including the qualifying round) and overall home and away have failed to in four of their last six games across all competitions. So they are not going to turn up and be a major threat to the Red Devils, who have posted a W5 D1 L1 record in their five previous home games against Dutch sides in Europe. The thing here is that the Dutch side would probably be pretty happy with a draw in this one which could leave United facing some resistance.
