Manchester United vs Feyenoord: Match Preview
This upcoming Manchester United vs Feyenoord match in the UEFA Europa League 2016 is going to be a critical encounter for both the teams. Manchester United are in a spot of bother after a 2-1 defeat away from home against Turkish side Fenerbahce. And they are in a somewhat desperate situation to win this match for losing this match will make things really difficult for them to qualify for the second round. And going by the trends, it can be stated that form hasn’t been on Manchester United’s side this season. In one match they play sublime football in another, they put up a dismal display. Also on a number of occasions they have squandered away opportunities to shut off the games but a lack of concentrations have made them lose points from those. So this is going to be really tricky for Jose Mourinho and his boys to overcome the tough challenge of their Dutch opponents.
Feyenoord, on the other hand, will be happy to get the point from this match as they are sitting pretty in the second spot in the table. They have equal points with Fenerbahce but have been ranked below them in Group A because of the lower goal difference. So things are looking good for the Dutch side. And if they can manage a win from Old Trafford in the upcoming Manchester United vs Feyenoord encounter, it will be like gold dust.
The previous encounter between these two ended in a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United. They were the travelling team and a lapse in concentration in defence gave the home team a crucial lead towards the latter half of the match. manchester United dominated the match right from the very beginning but failed to convert any of those opportunities. Zlatan Ibrahimovic also made some important misses which in the end made them pay a lot. United could have come back home Feyenoord winning the matches but for those missed opportunities. And if they fail to make an advancement into the next round they will probably look back to those missed opportunities and have only themselves to blame. Manchester United will look forward to making amends in that department and collect a crucial win in the upcoming Manchester United vs Feyenoord encounter which is going to be held in Old Trafford, England.
