The final matchday of the group stage is here and Manchester United has already secured passage into the knockout stages, but here is why the Red Devils look good at 2.00 to win.

Though Manchester United has already qualified for the knockout stage, David Moyes will look to his team to get fired up for a win after dropping a pair of league games at home against Newcastle and Everton. Expect Moyes to use this match as a strong challenge to his players. If United loses on Tuesday, it would be the first time in over 50 years that the club would lose three straight at Old Trafford.

I like United at 2.00 to win outright as it's unbeaten in the Champions League with three wins and a pair of draws. The Red Devils' scintillating performance two weeks ago at Bayer Leverkusen in which they emphatically won 5-0 was their best game of the season, and if they bring even a hint of that on Tuesday, it will be favourable for those wagering on the home side.

William Hill has a headline special paying out 3.50 should United emerge victorious coupled with a Rooney goal at any point in the game. The United double result nets 3.00 should it lead at half and win at fulltime. Both are indeed tempting.

The outright draw is listed at 3.25. These teams drew 1-1 in Ukraine on matchday two -- though both of them are going out for the win.

The Shakhtar victory is being issued at 4.00. The Ukranians are coming off a 4-0 victory over Real Sociedad in their last Champions League game, but they have never won in five all time matches in England. If they were to win, they would clinch first place in the group as a result of a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Expect the over 2.5 to crack tonight, which can be had at 1.73, though for more value think of the both teams to score with the Manchester win at 3.75.

If you are taking a look at a correct scorer pick today, make sure to wait 15 minutes before kickoff to see who is starting. Robin Van Persie is being offered at 2.00 while Rooney is at 2.20.
