United To Breeze Through Thanks To Rooney

FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On ITV1 & SS1: Weds 19:45 Manchester United host Milan (3-2) and Lyon travel to Real Madrid (0-1) in tonight’s Champions League second legs. Chris Hutcheon previews

Manchester United went a goal down inside three minutes in the San Siro but a dramatic turnaround that saw them emerge as 3-2 winners means they are firmly in the driving seat ahead of the second leg against AC Milan.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are now just 1/12 with Totesport to reach the last eight and a Wayne Rooney-inspired United can make it an unhappy return to Old Trafford for David Beckham by booking their place in the next round with a win; a result 888Sport rate at 8/11.

Despite only being a goal behind, the Rossoneri will sense that this tie is beyond them and they may have half an eye on a couple of winnable, Serie A home games that could see them increase the pressure on city rivals Inter in the Italian title race.

The hosts may cruise it then and a 2-0 United triumph looks huge at 8/1 with Betdaq, although there seems no harm in simplifying that bet by backing a home win by at least two clear goals, especially as bet365 offer odds of 21/10.

Rooney ‘s double did the damage in the first leg and the fit-again striker is evens at Victor Chandler to find the net in this one while those ambitious punters sensing that Beckham will make a huge impact back on his old stamping ground, can back the veteran midfielder at 9/1 with Ladbrokes to score a trademark free kick.

Partybets price Real Madrid at 4/7 to progress, in spite of a 1-0 first-leg defeat at Lyon and the La Liga leaders are not only a home banker at 3/10 (Jaxx.com) but they also catch the eye at 13/10 with Paddy Power to combine a victory with a clean sheet.

In the Premiership, Burnley desperately need a home win against Stoke but the resilient Potters can frustrate the Clarets at Turf Moor, where Ladbrokes chalk 23/10 against the draw.
