Bayer Leverkusen-Manchester United Betting Preview: Back the Red Devils to get caged at BayArena

Sami Hyypia's men will be hoping to leap frog David Moyes’s side at the summit of Group A when both sides clash on Wednesday night
Manchester United travel to Germany for their Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen and will be looking to secure maximum points towards maintaining their lead at the top of Group A.

The hosts come into this game with 10 wins from their first 13 matches in the German Bundesliga and having won their last eight consecutive group stage matches on home soil, you can back them at 11/8 (2.37) with Ladbrokes  to tame the Red Devils before their home fans.

Odds of 19/10 (2.90) is available that Manchester United secure an away victory in this encounter baring in mind that they won the first leg at the Old Trafford 4-2. Should they win this tie, they will secure a place in the knockout stages.

Ladbrokes also place the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

With 26 goals in just eight games in their own back yard this season, Leverkusen are sure to put pressure on a defence with only one clean sheet to their name on the road this season, having been breached by the modest attacks of Fulham, Stoke and most recently twice by Cardiff. You can back the home side to go goal crazy against Moyes’s men between 2-3 goals at 6/4 (2.50).

United have won their last three Champions League fixtures against Leverkusen, although they were knocked out on away goals by the Germans in the 2001-02 semi-finals.  They are unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions, climbing to sixth in the Premier League after a poor start to the season. With this in mind, it wont be an unwise tip them at 9/10 (1.90) bet to win either half.

Considering at least three goals have been scored in 10 of the last 11 Champions League games at the BayArena, odds of  17/20 (1.85) are surely too good to miss on over 2.5 going in between two sides who have provided 17 goals in their previous five encounters.
