Betting: Back Romelu Lukaku to score first in another Manchester United win at 9/2

The Belgian has started the season in superb form and he can fire the Red Devils to a Champions League win over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday evening

Manchester United head to Russia seeking a fifth straight win in all competitions as they take on CSKA Moscow on the second matchday of the Champions League group stage.

United beat Basel 3-0 in their first Group A clash and the Red Devils are hot favourites to top a straightforward section, with Romelu Lukaku aiming to extend a fine run of goalscoring in Wednesday's clash.

Not only did the Belgian score against Basel, he hit the only goal in Saturday's 1-0 Premier League success at Southampton, meaning he has scored eight goals in his eight games for United after a reported £75 million move from Everton.

The price boost up to 9/2 (5.50) from dabblebet, up from 4/1 (5.0) on Lukaku to get the first goal against CSKA in a United win therefore looks like tremendous value.

CSKA have lost three of their last nine home games in all competitions, while their goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has failed to keep a clean sheet in his last 44 appearances in the Champions League proper.

It is hard to see the Russians putting up too much of a fight in this one, although United will be without Paul Pogba once more due to the France international's injury, with Lukaku set to lead the charge for his side again.

While the powerful forward has sometimes been accused of scoring too many of his goals in games that were already won, a decisive goal against Southampton suggests he is starting to answer those critics and 9/2 (5.50) on the Belgian to score first in a United win is great value thanks to a price boost from 4/1 (5.0) by dabblebet.

Stoke City are the only side to have stopped United from winning in any competition this season and Mark Hughes' side deserve plenty of credit for their performance on the day, but Jose Mourinho has been in a determined mood ever since and he will want to maintain his side's winning run to secure qualification for the next round of the Champions League as quickly as possible.

Lukaku is the most likely first goalscorer for the Red Devils and 9/2 (5.50) for the striker to get the first goal and United to beat CSKA Moscow, boosted from 4/1 (5.0) by dabblebet, is a great option for Wednesday's game.
