Europa League Draw: Man Utd face trips to Kazakhstan and Serbia

Manchester United’s draw for the Europa League group stages has been confirmed.

The Reds face lengthy trips across Europe, in what will be a chance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to rotate and blood some youngsters.

United were first drawn out against Kazakhstan side Astana, a 3,600 mile trip for the team and United’s away fans.

Solskjaer’s men also face a trip to Serbia to face Partizan Belgrade. Belgrade are currently sixth early on in the Serbian Super League season.

A more convenient trip for United fans is to Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar, who may prove a test for the Reds after an unbeaten start in the Dutch League.

Playing in the Europa League is always a burden on teams, dealing with the Thursday night, Sunday afternoon schedule, but the competition may have to be prioritised this season as United’s best chance to gain Champions League qualification.
