ANDERLECHT v MANCHESTER UTD BETTING PREVIEWAnderlecht are on course to deliver a first league title since 2014 and are unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions with 5 wins and a draw. Paars Wit finished top of the Belgium First Division A in the regular season and they've enjoyed a fine start to the play-off section too with four points from their first two games. They have won seven of their last nine games at home in all competitions. In Europa League, the Belgian outfit have knocked out Russian giants Zenit and gritty Cypriot side APOEL.
Right back Andy Najar is sidelined with a hamstring injury, while midfielder Adrien Trebel is ineligible for the Europa League. Rubén Martínez will start in goal with the likes of Ivan Obradovic, Uros Spajic, Kara and Emmanuel Sowah Adjei forming the four man backline. Up front, Sofiane Hanni, Lukasz Teodorczyk and Alexandru Chiciu are likely to start while young talent Youri Tielemans will play in midfield alongside Leander Dendoncker and Nicolae Stanciu.
Manchester UTD have lost only one of their last 16 games in all competitions. They got back to winning ways with that 3-0 win at Sunderland this past weekend ut still sit 5th in the Premier League standings, trailing Man City in 4th by 4 point, with one game in hand. As to the Europa League, Man UTD are unbeaten in their last six Europa League games, winning five of them. Having cruised through the knockout stage and the last-32, Jose Mourinho’s men made hard work of their last-16 tie with Rostov - 1:1 in Russia and a narrow 1-0 victory at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho has said that he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of this trip to Belgium. Antonio Valencia has missed Manchester United's last two matches but he is expected to recover and feature from the off. Juan Mata, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Ashley Young will all miss the trip to Belgium. David De Gea also misses out, and Sergio Romero is likely to play between the posts. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will spearhead the attack with Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan few meters behind the Swede.
