There should be goals at the Estadio Balaidos, and we think there is value in backing the former Liverpool striker to net against Jose Mourinho's men

The biggest game in Celta Vigo's history sees them host Manchester United in the semi-finals of the Europa League, and while the La Liga outfit are novices at this level of European football, they are a side more than capable of causing upsets.

Indeed, Celta have consistently proved stubborn opposition for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, both of whom them have beaten this season at home, and while United are giants of the continental game, they could be in for a tough night in Galicia

Celta have netted in each of their last six matches against Real Madrid in all competitions and have put four goals past Barcelona in each of their last two home matches against the Catalans, meaning the hosts will fancy their chances of scoring against Jose Mourinho's men on Thursday.

In Iago Aspas, Celta boast the top scoring Spaniard in La Liga and the former Liverpool forward has also been in great form in the Europa League netting five goals in seven starts.

Aspas is offered at 11/5 (3.20) to score at anytime and if the hosts look likely to score, then their main striker must surely be a decent bet to find the back of the net. Elsewhere for Eduardo Berizzo's side, Daniel Wass is offered at 5/1 (6.00) and the talented Danish midfielder certainly has an eye for goal, while big Swedish forward John Guidetti is 12/5 (3.60) to score his fifth goal of the competition.

United, of course, are without top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Swede's five goals in the competition make him the Reds' top scorer in Europe so far this season. With the veteran missing, it will be down to youngster Marcus Rashford to step into his scoring boots.

The 19-year-old can be backed at 17/10 (2.70) to find the back of the net at anytime. Elsewhere for the visitors, Juan Mata can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) to add to his ten goals in all competitions this season on his return to Spain, while Paul Pogba is priced at 7/2 (4.50) to add to his tally of two European goals in a Manchester United shirt.
