Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is still in the Europa League race and will look to close its 2019/20 campaign successfully.
The season in Premier League for Manchester United It tasted good, especially because of the rhythm it exhibited since the return to competition after the pandemic break: six wins and three draws to finish unbeaten in the league in that period.
It is true that he was far from fighting for the English league, that in the EFL Cup he said goodbye in the semifinals at the hands of Manchester City and that in the FA Cup he was left out in that same instance, although against Chelsea. This left the Red Devils empty-handed, at least locally.
Those of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have a front to look forward to lifting a trophy in this 2019/20 course: the UEFA Europa League. On August 5 they will seek to complete their process at Old Trafford after sweeping LASK Linz 5-0 in Austria and thus advance to the quarterfinals of the second most important club level European competition.
How would the story continue for the Mancunian painting? The draw has already taken place and that is why it will wait for the winner of the series between the Turkish champion, Başakşehir, and Copenhagen from Denmark. While in the semifinals those who come for the key of Seville, Rome, Olympiacos and Wolverhampton run.
Which of the weight sets that appear on the other side aspire to an eventual final? Inter Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and, perhaps, Getafe for their good season in La Liga, are pushing to reach definition.
United reversed that trend of irregularity that it brought before the paralysis of competition. He has arguments and consolidated a solid base of play, with a midfield powered by Bruno Fernandes in the company of Paul Pogba and the synchronized attack between Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, the youth of Mason Greenwood who oxygenates the offense and a defense led by Harry Maguire.
The season for the Manchester team did not end. And the aspirations for it to end with a celebration are well founded.
