Manchester United vs FC Rostov Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Manchester United welcome FC Rostov at the Old Trafford on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie. Rostov fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Russia last week. Henrikh Mkhitaryan gave Manchester the lead just after the half-hour mark, but Aleksandr Bukharov scored the equaliser in the first eight minutes of the second half. 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 win here due to their impressive run of form. Furthermore, Rostov make the trip without their two key players Alexandru Gatcan and Timofey Kalachev. In addition, Rostov are winless in their last five European away fixtures, registering two defeats and three draws in the process. I’m backing Manchester United to win, but I’m expecting a low-scoring affair.

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United’s ten-game unbeaten streak across all competitions ended yesterday as they were knocked out from the FA Cup following a 1-0 defeat on the road at Chelsea. The Red Devils are currently on a three-game winless streak in all competitions, including their 1-1 away draw at Rostov last Thursday. Despite the recent mini blip, Manchester United are red-hot favourites to win here due to their excellent home form. The Red Devils are undefeated in their last 22 home fixtures across all competitions, conceding just 12 goals in the process. Furthermore, Mourinho’s men have won all four of their Europa League home games this season, scoring 12 goals in this term while conceding just one. Domestically, Manchester United drew three of their last five league outings, including a 1-1 home draw against Bournemouth last time out in the Premier League. They find themselves only in 6th position in the Premier League table with 49 points to their name after 26 rounds, just one point off the top five. Although they sit just in 6th in the standings, Manchester United still hold the 3rd best defensive record in the division, conceding just 22 goals in 26 league fixtures. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been Manchester United’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, helping the team with 26 goals across all competitions.

FC Rostov Team News

FC Rostov, on the flip side, are unbeaten since they return to action after the winter break, but three of their last five competitive fixtures have ended in draws. After their first-leg result against Manchester United last Thursday, Rostov managed another nil-nil home draw against Terek Grozni in the Russian Premier League at the weekend. The good news is that Rostov have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five games across all competitions. Overall, the Russians are currently on a 14-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. Domestically, Rostov sit in 8th spot in the Premier League table tied on 29 points with Terek Grozni, just three points off the top four. Away from home, Rostov are currently on a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, conceding just five goals in the process. The bad news is that the Russian outfit are winless in their last five European away games, losing two and drawing three in this term. Sardar Azmoun and Aleksandr Erokhin have been Rostov’s most influential players on the pitch throughout their Russian Premier League campaign, as the pair bagged eight goals and four assists between them. Azmoun has also helped the team with four goals in his 13 appearances in Europe this season.
