While Chelsea continue to keep their title challengers at arms’ length, the race for a top four spot in the Premier League is looking increasingly tight and the Europa League could actually end up being Manchester United’s best chance of securing a place in Europe’s premier club competition next season.
At just 15/8 (2.88) to win the entire tournament, there is unlikely to be too many juicy prices about Jose Mourinho’s men in their matches but Betfair are certainly offering new customers a tempting quote of 6/1 (7.0) for the favourites to triumph in their second leg clash with Rostov.
To take up this huge price simply register using the link provided, back United at the usual odds shown on site and if they win, the returns will be topped up to the value of a 6/1 (7.0) winner. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C’s apply.
A 1-1 draw on a difficult pitch was credible enough in the reverse fixture but with home advantage plus the services of a domestic ally suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic for this game, it’s no surprise to see just 1/4 (1.25) on the home win.
Mourinho has certainly paid this competition plenty of respect with his team selections in previous rounds and another strong line-up should have too much for the Russian underdogs, who are as big as 20/1 (21.0) to shock their illustrious hosts at Old Trafford.
The visitors have struggled to make their mark on the road in Europe this season, netting just once in their Champions League group games and only once in the last 32 clash of this tournament against Sparta Prague. By contrast, the home side have won each of their four Europa League home games scoring 11 times and conceding just once.
Considering that they don’t already boast a first leg advantage to rely upon, there should be no complacency from United and at 6/1 (7.0) they are bound to be extremely popular with new Betfair punters who spy the opportunity to kick start their new account with a big priced winner from Thursday’s Europa League action.
