Manchester United vs AZ Alkmaar Betting Tips

Both Manchester United and AZ Alkmaar have already qualified for the next phase of the UEFA Europa League. But, it’s still unknown which of these two teams will go to the knockouts from the first place on the table. Ahead of the final round in the group stage, the Red Devils have 10 points, which is one point more than their opponent.

What this means is that only a win at the Old Trafford would get the Dutch team to the top of the group table. This is not something they look capable of achieving and there are several reasons for that. First of all, the player quality is obviously on the side of the English team.

Secondly, Manchester United are playing in front of their supporters, which is when they always give their maximum. Another reason is that the Red Devils are in a pretty impressive form right now, with two big wins in the previous two Premier League rounds. First, they beat Tottenham at home, then they beat Manchester City in an away game.

We’re not yet done talking about the reasons why Manchester United look very likely not to lose this game. Another thing going in their favor is the schedule. Next weekend, they play Everton at home, while AZ Alkmaar are pitted against the strongest Dutch team, Ajax. And knowing that AZ Alkmaar are leading a two-horse race with Ajax for the top spot in the Eredivisie, the match on weekend is of much, much bigger importance for them than the one happening on Thursday.
