Manchester United are in Cyprus to face Omonia Nicosia on matchday three of the Europa League with Erik ten Hag's men massive favourites to claim a victory.

The Reds will be desperate to put in a big performance following their 6-3 derby humbling at the hands of Manchester City at the weekend, while a win on Thursday evening is vital for their hopes of topping Group E.

Omonia Nicosia vs Manchester United first goal scorer odds

United will surely rest some players on Thursday evening, although Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to start having not featured against Manchester City at the weekend.

The 37-year-old scored in the previous away game in the group at Sheriff Tiraspol and is offered at 5/2 (3.50) to break the deadlock ahead of Anthony Martial at 4/1 (5.00).

It was Jadon Sancho who opened the scoring on matchday two and he is offered at 7/1 (8.00) while the shortest priced player for the hosts is former Celtic and Norwich City striker Gary Hooper at 16/1 (17.00).

Omonia Nicosia vs Manchester United preview

Neil Lennon's side put in a respectable performance in going down 2-1 at Real Sociedad on matchday two and the Cypriot team's aim will once again be to try and compete.

United have been knocked out of their stride somewhat with two defeats in their last three games, but they will surely record a win in Nicosia on Thursday.

Backing the visitors to win and keep a clean sheet looks like an obvious selection, and United were able to do just that in Moldova on matchday two.

The hosts' will be defensive but are not likely to be able to trouble United too much and there should be plenty of interest in investing in an away win.

Omonia Nicosia vs Manchester United tips and predictions

The Reds are offered at 4/5 (1.80) to win to nil which looks like an excellent option, while backing United to win both halves at 11/8 (2.38) could also prove profitable.

Odds correct at the time of scoring. Please gamble responsibly.
