United are currently top of Group L with an unbeaten record from their first three Europa League games, and the Reds are yet to concede a goal in the competition this season. United also have a strong home record in all competitions this year, with only one loss at Old Trafford throughout the campaign.
Partizan sit third in the group going into matchday four, after a 2-2 draw with AZ Alkmaar in their opening game, followed by an impressive 2-1 victory over Astana and then a defeat to United in their last outing. The Black-Whites are currently fourth in the Serbian SuperLiga table, with nine wins, two draws and three defeats from their first 14 games of the season.
