David Moyes takes charge of his first ever Champions League group match as Manchester United entertain Bayer Leverkusen and the ex-Everton manager’s first foray into this stage of the competition is expected to be a happy one.
United are odds-on at 4/5 courtesy of BetVictor to get off to a winning start and aided by home advantage they have to be fancied but the Bundesliga outfit have won four of their opening five matches, so they will be no pushovers.
Indeed the confident visitors can ensure it’s a close encounter, so a case can be made for Moyes’s charges to shade it by one, at 11/4 via Boylesports while Ladbrokes post an eye catching 8/1 against a 2-1 United success.
Leverkusen certainly possess the quality to get on the scoresheet at Old Trafford, where it’s 4/5 (Stan James) for both teams to find the net and with that in mind, it’s hard to resist Winner.com’s 2/1 for the hosts to prevail but also to concede at least a goal.
