Manchester United will have the opportunity to book their place in the next stage of the Europa League as they travel to Astana.
The Red Devils are two points clear at top of the table with two games to go, a win in Kazakhstan will see them continue in Europe next February.
Manchester United produced a mixed performance last weekend as they were held 3-3 by Sheffield United. They were two goals down, came back to lead 3-2, before settling for a 3-3 draw. It was a frustrating day for Ole at the wheel.
The Red Devils form in Europe is better as they have won three and drew one of their four matches so far, including four clean sheets.
Fc Astana claimed the Kazakhstan League title earlier this month with 69 points to finish top of the Division. Their 6th title in a row. However, European outings have been a disaster this season, they have lost all four matches, scoring once and conceding 14 goals in the process.
Ole’s decision to travel with a young squad, consisting of Academy graduates and fringe players could see Astana fancy their chances against the English heavyweight.
If Manchester United fails to beat the group minnows and get a win in the final group game against second-placed Az Alkmaar, it will be enough for the Red Devils to be group winners.
