FC Rostov vs Manchester United Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Manchester United make the long trip to Russia on Thursday evening to take on FC Rostov for the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie. FC Rostov managed a ridiculous 0-6 victory on the road at Tomsk in their first Premier League fixtures after the long winter break. Aleksandr Bukharov and Sardar Azmoun have netted a brace each, while Marko Devic and Aleksandr Erokhin scored the other two goals. On the flip side, Manchester United were held to a 1-1 home draw by Bournemouth last time out in the Premier League, despite they took the lead in the 23rd minute through Marcos Rojo and even missed a penalty kick in the 72nd minute through Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Manchester United are hot favourites to lift the Europa League trophy this year, which means they are also favourites to pick up a victory in this one. However, Rostov have been a strong side in front of their own fans this season, and even managed to defeat Bayern Munich and Ajax in their Champions League home fixtures. I’m backing Rostov to secure at least a draw in this one, and I’m also expecting goals at both ends of the pitch.

FC Rostov Team News

FC Rostov returned to action in the Premier League last Friday, and they did it in style, having won 0-6 on the road at Tom Tomsk. Rostov have been impeccable during the winter break, winning four and drawing three of their seven friendly fixtures. Over the past three months, Rostov have only played in three competitive fixtures - a nil-nil draw on the road at PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, and a comfortable 5-1 victory on aggregate over Sparta Prague in their Europa League round of 32 tie. Rostov have been a strong side at the Stadion Olimp 2 throughout their European adventure so far this as they have only lost once in their last seven European home fixtures so far this season. They were beaten 0-1 by Atletico Madrid back in the middle of November 2016, which was their sole defeat in their last 18 home fixtures across all competitions. During this incredible run of form, Rostov managed some impressive victories over Ajax and Bayern Munich, scoring at least three goals in each of these. Domestically, Rostov find themselves only in 7th spot in the Russian Premier League table tied on 28 points with Ufa, just one point off the top four. Sardar Azmoun, Aleksandr Erokhin and Dmitri Poloz have been Rostov’s most prolific players throughout this Premier League campaign, as they bagged 12 goals and nine assists between them.

Manchester United Preview

On the flip side, Manchester United enter the fray on the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, but they were held to a disappointing 1-1 home draw by 10-man Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend. Despite this poor result, Manchester United have enjoyed an impressive run of form over the past four months, losing just one of their last 27 home fixtures across all competitions. The Red Devils currently sit in 6th spot in the Premier League table with 49 points under their belts, just one point off the top five. Manchester United’s performance throughout their Premier League campaign was largely based on their solid defence, as they have only conceded 22 goals in 26 league fixtures. Regarding their European adventure this season, Manchester United finished runners-up to Fenerbahce in Group A, before winning 4-0 aggregate over Saint-Etienne in the round of 32. The Red Devils have endured a mixed run of form on the road in the Europa League so far this season, winning two and losing two of their four away European fixtures. The good news is that United have become the 11th club to record a 4th consecutive Europa League clean sheet after their 0-1 victory on the road at St. Etienne last time out.
