Sheriff Tiraspol take on the visitors Manchester United in the round 2 match of UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, September 15th at Stadionul Zimbru (Chişinău).
Sheriff made their debut in the group stage of the Champions League a year ago. And even played in the playoffs of the Europa League, with Braga. This season, in the Champions League qualification, the Black-and-Yellows coped with Zrinjski and even Maribor. But then they actually had no chance with Viktoria, losing both at home and away. After that, the champion of Moldova brought his right to play in the main round of the Europa League. In a tense penalty shootout, after 2 goalless draws, they knocked out Pyunik in the decisive round of selection. And then they started powerfully in the “group”. "Wasps" defeated "Omonia" on the road. Already in the 2nd minute, Rashid opened the scoring. As a result, the visitors in Cyprus brought the difference to 3-0, and the Nigerian striker, who came from Kojaliespor in the summer, also had an assist. But still, last Thursday 2 outsiders of the quartet played. It will be interesting to look at Sheriff against the backdrop of the grand.

Manchester United obviously sees the Premier League as a priority and perhaps Erik ten Hag thinks it's possible to qualify for the Europa League playoffs at a reduced pace. As in the Premier League, the Dutchman in the European Cup started with a defeat. Maguire and Ronaldo returned to the line-up of the Mancunians. Star newcomers Casemiro and Anthony also came out. But in the end, it didn’t work out either to score or leave their gates “dry”. Real Sociedad managed to win at Old Trafford 1-0. On the other hand, it is, of course, a failure and a shame, but not a tragedy. In order to get out of the group, the Englishmen do not have to smash the status of the Spaniards. It is enough to achieve a better result than a couple of underdogs. Although, of course, after the defeat at home, they will not understand if the "Red Devils" do not rehabilitate themselves in front of the fans and just football fans in Moldova.
Sheriff only once, last year, played in the main round of the Champions League. And Manchester United does not often play in tournaments with a lower rank. So this is the first voyage of the English grandee to Moldova. Bookmakers consider Manchester United to be the clear favorite of the pair. But it is unlikely that the Englishmen will bring to Moldova, through the whole of Europe, the main composition. And this is Sheriff's chance to dry up the game. We recommend betting on “under 3.5 goals”.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 scored goals.
