Following on from a Derby Day disaster, Jose Mourinho and his side are looking to bounce back in style away to Feyenoord in the Europa League, a competition that has already been placed low on the list of the new managers’ priorities. A squad with notable absentees travel to Holland, but United still go in to this game as the favourites in a match they should win.
Feyenoord – 16/5
Draw – 27/10
Manchester United – 20/23
A £10 stake on Manchester United to win would return £18.70
Goals, Goals, Goals
Manchester United’s defence has seemed somewhat inconsistent this season, and at the weekend against Manchester City, some of the defending was downright deplorable. Feyenoord are no pushovers either, and as such you can find Both teams to score at 7/10, whilst Over 2.5 goals come in at 20/23. As far as goalscorers go, for me if Marcus Rashford is to start then he is a very good bet to grab himself a slice of the action, you can get him to score anytime 17/10 and first 11/2. There are no certainties that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play any part in the game, but to ignore him on the basis of a hunch would be daft. To back him anytime would be 6/5 and first goalscorer (should he start) comes in at 4/1. For the hosts, their most likely goalscorer is Michiel Kramer and he is at 29/10 anytime and 9/1 first goalscorer.
Both teams to score in the game is entirely possible, and also odds on. As such I would be looking at United winning and Feyenoord scoring the solitary goal. From there it’s all about United and who turns up on the night if Marcus Rashford has his scoring boots on he could very well help himself to a goal or 2. Manchester United to win 2-1 is 8/1 and 3-1 is 15/1. For those that perhaps harbour a more negative outlook towards the match may be interested in the draw market. Believe that parity will be reached and you can find 1-1 and 2-2 at 13/2 and 14/1 respectively.
Bet of the Day
Bet Victor (who I have used this week) off a Player Specials market, and this is where I get my Bet of the day from. Customers can find Marcus Rashford to score anytime – Right Foot 10/3. If the young man starts I believe he will certainly find himself on the score sheet, and being that he is right footed it only makes sense to back that option. As that may be rather a niche, for the wider audience there is Marcus Rashford to score, Manchester United to win 5/2. Which is also a very tempting option? A £10 stake on option A) returns £43.33 and a £10 stake on option B) returns £35.
