Manchester United defied expectations to grab a first leg draw against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford but David Moyes’s men remain outsiders at 6/1 via bet365 to reach the semi-finals at the expense of the defending champions, emphatic 1/8 favourites at Coral to progress to the last four.
United demonstrated in last week’s performance, the desire and resilience that have so often eluded them on their own patch this term and there’s no doubt it has given Moyes’s squad a real lift, to the point where they genuinely fancy their chances in the Allianz Arena.
However, it’s one thing to make life uncomfortable for Europe’s best time on home soil but to do so on the road is a tougher ask altogether, especially as Pep Guardiola’s troops will have been reasonably happy to take a draw in United’s backyard.
It’s hard to overlook the holders then and I can see them overcoming some early jitters before eventually utilising their likely dominance of possession to break United’s resistance.
Draw/Bayern Munich in HT/FT betting – 19/5 (BetVictor)
