MUN vs ALK Dream11 : AZ Alkmaar enter today’s match with massive chances of pulling off a win in this clash
A drab and torrid Manchester United going to AZ Alkmaar side for today’s Europa League encounter could end up being the clash where the side finally falter and stop scrapping their way to pesky wins. Put on lacklustre ad languishing performances in the Premier League ever since the start of the season, the side have somehow managed to squirm through to draws with sporadic goals rescuing them from what should have been affirmed defeats.
The same narrative was played out when they faced off against Arsenal in the Premier League in the bygone gameweek, a clash which was everything but what was being expected from it. A yaw filled affair and two sides unsure of how to play football took on each other, Arsenal were left ruing what should have been an ascertained win in their favour with the side being stalled to a 1-1 draw, a result born from their appalling attacking performance.
It gave Manchester United another undeserving draw, much like their 1-0 win in their first Europa League match against Astana, a result which they side managed to scamper through after partaking in an agonising viewing for the viewers. In what can be best described as a match which fizzled rather than sizzle, the attacking content was few with both the sides engaging in a skirmish as either huffed and puffed to string together two meaningful passes.
While they did manage to win that one, Manchester United will find it tougher against AZ Alkmaar today, a side who are unbeaten in their previous 5 matches. Unlike their opponents, they don’t have any qualms of scoring either with the side partaking in a 2-2 draw in their first match of the marquee league against Partizan which places them in second position in Group L. With the winner of today’s match set to go into first place, this looks set to be an exhilarating affair, one where Alkmaar will spare no expense in sweeping past an opponent which is only waning and wavering as the weeks traverse by.

MUN vs ALK Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With Manchester United being all too easily to slander and halt in their attacking sorties, AZ Alkmaar’s shot stopper is chosen in this ambit of our side. The proposition of him coming out unscathed from this encounter, unblemished and without conceding a goal is likely, seeing us opt for him over here.
MUN vs ALK Dream11 Defenders
Sticking with the same narrative we have a duo come in from AK Alkmaar, a partnership which is not only going to get in a slew of tackling and blocking points for us but will also be quissential in moving up the park and playing a hand in their side’s attacking thrusts. In Owen Wijndal and Yukinari Sugawara, we have two players who have been handed this exact role by their side, making them both excellent picks for this encounter.
Just the one player for us from Manchester United with Axel Tuanzebe being brought in by us for this prevelant clash.
MUN vs ALK Dream11 Midfielders
While Manchester United are despondent when it comes to crafting out attacks with the side clearly bereft of ideas on how to fathom together goals, Alkmaar is a side against whom they could enjoy some success. It comes down to Alkmaar’s defence, one which is prone of losing its concentration, cohesion and semblance to allow strikers to traverse past them and succeed in their soirees of getting a goal.
This sees us pick up Juan Mata and Tahith Chong from Manchester United while from the opposition we are going in with Dani de Wit and Calvin Stengs, a formidable and daunting partnership which has a bag of tricks at its disposal.
MUN vs ALK Dream11 Strikers
Althouhg Marcus Rashford won’t be in his side’s playing 11 for this clash, the striker is all too likely to come on as a substitute, seeing us go for him in this fixture. We are also getting in Mason Greenwood who scored for his side in the previous match and looks the likeliest player from Manchester United to conjure up a goal in this fixture as well.
The one player from the opposition meanwhile, with Myson Boadu, their lone striker upfront closing out our Dream 11 outfit for this clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Greenwood is made our captain for this one while we are going in with Myson as the vice-captain.
