Manchester United have given themselves some work to do after losing 2-1 in Denmark last week, although the bookies still expect them to reach the last sixteen of the Europa League.
Bet365 go 1/3 that the Red Devils qualify, with a 1-0 winning scoreline being enough to edge out Midtjylland who are conversely 9/4 (BetVictor) to go through at the expense of their English opponents.
The pressure will certainly be on United whose season is threatening to unravel under Louis van Gaal, although Stan James are among those firms going 1/4 about a victory for the Red Devils.
United have been pretty stingy at home this season in terms of conceding goals and a win to nil for LVG’s men can be backed with confidence at 10/11 (Sky Bet), with the visitors unlikely to be too adventurous as they aim to protect that slender advantage.
Wayne Rooney is on the sidelines for a while, although Anthony Martial has shone brightly this term and bet365 quote 15/4 about the Frenchman opening the scoring.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur got the desired result in Florence when drawing 1-1 against Fiorentina last week. Ladbrokes make them 4/9 to now qualify for the last sixteen although Sunday’s Premier League clash with Swansea is more important.
Therefore, perhaps La Viola are a spot of value at 7/4 (William Hill) to take advantage of a weakened Tottenham side and stake a claim in the next round of the competition.
Fiorentina are unbeaten in seven matches and won 3-2 at Atalanta on Sunday, with the team sitting third in the Serie A table and going for a title of their own.
Paddy Power offer a best price 5/6 that Spurs win on the night although much comes down to team selection. Perhaps Mauricio Pochettino will field Nacer Chadli after the Belgian was rested against Palace and he’s 13/2 (bet365) to score first.
The Man U-Spurs double pays an inviting looking price of just under 6-4 at Stan James; returning £61 for a £25 investment
