It’s been over a decade since Jose Mourinho last faced Anderlecht in European competition and the Manchester United manager has been drawn up against his old adversary as they try to put the brakes on the favourites for the Europa League title.
With his side evens (2.0) to beat Anderlecht originally, new Betfair customers can also pick up the 28/1 (29.0) offer on an away win, with a max stake of £1. With so little at stake in the event of an upset and a potential £29 paid in returns, there is effectively everything to gain and nothing to lose backing Jose Mourinho's men. The Portuguese has declared winning the Europa League as a potential pathway back into the Champions League next season, and a motivated Red Devils side is expected to have too much for their Belgian hosts.
To take advantage of the huge price boost, simply register using the link provided, back United at the usual odds shown on site and if it wins, your returns will be topped up to the enhanced value shortly after full time. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C's apply.
Alternatively, Betfair have upped their price to 10/1 (11.0) for Mourinho’s men to win at any stake.
Though Anderlecht are the second most prolific side left in the competition, they have not yet faced an opponent of the calibre of United, with the visitors the tightest at the back to date with six clean sheets and the fewest goals conceded of any sides that got out of the group stages. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, meanwhile, are expected to make their quality felt against a relatively inferior squad.
The Swede has five goals and three assists - playing a direct role in more goals than any other player left in the Europa League - and will lead the charge once more as his fired-up team-mates see the competition as a serious chance of silverware and, more importantly, a route back to Europe’s premier club competition, thus making the 10/1 (11.0) on them to come away with a win unmissable.
