Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…
Man Utd are the heavy favourites going into this clash and are expected to win comfortably.
Even if manager Solskjaer makes changes to the XI that started against Leicester at the weekend, this United team should be much too strong here.
Astana are well into their domestic season yet sit just fourth in the Kazakh top flight.
They only scraped into the Europa League after a 3-2 aggregate win over BATE Borisov, losing 2-0 in the away leg.
It’s hard to see where Astana will threaten United here and a routine home win is certainly in the pipeline.
Prediction: Man Utd 3-0 Astana
