Europa League

Group A

Bet: Asian Handicap MU (-1,25)

On Thursday, November 24, Manchester United will host Feyenoord at the Old Trafford. The Red Devils will be looking to get a win and to leapfrog above their opponent in the table. What’s more, Mourinho’s side is eager to take revenge for the recent defeat in Rotterdam.  

As it was predicted by the vast majority of the sports betting markets Manchester United have started this season with a number of victories. However, fully packed with the stars, the Red Devils started to slow down after the initial spurt. They have suffered several shocking defeats and put themselves under a lot of pressure. At this moment Mourinho’s side is out of the Premier League top-five sitting on the 6th position – 9 points behind the leader Chelsea. As for the Europa League, the betting experts expected United to pass easily through the group stage even without caring about this tournament a lot. Nevertheless, after 4 matches MU is third with 1 point deficit from the leader.

Feyenoord’s brilliant start of the new season (9 wins in a row in all competitions) has surprised even the most experienced sports betting companies. But The Club of the People didn’t manage to keep the pace. When everyone thought it would be a perfect season for Feye, they were seen out of sorts with Fenerbahce in the Europa League (0-1). Then, before the international break, contrary to all betting conjectures, they somehow contrived to lose to one of the main underdogs of Eredivisie Go Ahead Eagles (0-1). Although van Bronckhorst’s team still sit on the top of Eredivisie standings, their lead has shrunk to 2 points. In the Europa League Feye is the second having 7 points together with Fenerbahce.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that after the international break Feyenoord overcame Zwolle (3-0) and Manchester United stumbled over Arsenal (1-1). Although the level of their  rivals is incomparable. In the last fixture United showed quite a good performance, but in order to get the result they need to start taking at least the half of the chances they create. According to the sports betting companies Mourinho is determined to get to the knockout stage despite his disdainful attitude toward this tournament. So this home game becomes a must-win for the Red Devils.

The bookmakers consider the host to be an unquestionable favorite: MU – 1,36, Draw – 4,75, Feyenoord – 9,50. The Europa League doesn’t seem to be much of a reprieve for United fans’ woes, but the Devils will fight at full blast. It should be mentioned that Ibrahimovic is likely to play after a three weeks break, but Smalling and Bailly are out of the game while Fellaini and Shaw are doubts. As for Feye, they have El Ahmadi and Brad Jones back in the squad. At the same time Eric Botteghin is suspended while Vermeer and van Beek are injured. The Holland side looks poor away from home that is why MU have to get a relatively easy win. You can bet on “Asian Handicap MU (-1,25)” (1,80). The bet “Total Goals by Home Team over 2” (1,80) is also worth your attention.
