Mundane Man United To Bore Their Way Into The Europa League Final

Manchester United are in the driving seat going into the second leg of their Europa League semi-final with Celta Vigo on Thursday night and the home side are odds on to get the job done at Old Trafford...

  • Manchester United's last 7 games at Old Trafford have gone under 2.5 goals
  • United haven't scored a goal from open play in 411 minutes in all competitions
  • 5 of Celta Vigo's 6 away games in the Europa League have gone under 2.5 goals

Home Comforts

Jose Mourinho's side were deserved 1-0 winners in the first leg in Spain last week but the Red Devils should really have put the tie to bed as Celta were particularly poor. Since then, United saw their 25-match unbeaten run come to an end with a 2-0 loss at Arsenal and it is clear that Mourinho is prioritising the Europa League as a route into next season's Champions League.

United are 1/2 for the win on Thursday (Ladbrokes) and they are unbeaten in their last seventeen home matches in UEFA competition (won fourteen, drawn three), winning all six at 'The Theatre of Dreams' this season.

Celta have won three of their six on the road in the Europa League this term (drawn two, lost one) but they appear to be paying the price for playing a weakened team in their La Liga matches, with Celta losing all momentum thanks to a run of four league defeats in a row
Match Odds:

Low Scoring

In truth, Celta make little appeal at 5/1 in the match betting, such was the insipid nature of their first leg performance, and we are going to back under 2.5 goals in total in the match (Evens with Betfred).

'Unders' is a bet that has paid out in five of Celta's six away games in Europe this season, as well as in fourteen of United's last sixteen outings in all competitions, including the last seven in a row at Old Trafford.

United, shorn of their top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, have looked dreadfully short of options in the attacking third as they have scored just two goals in their last four matches in all competitions and neither of those came from an open play, with Wayne Rooney scoring a debatable penalty against Swansea and Marcus Rashford notching a free-kick that should have been saved against Celta last week.

One man who could be worth a look to get on the scoresheet this week is Henrikh Mkhitaryan as he has notched five in his past six Europa League appearances and he is 6/1 to score first on Thursday (Sky Bet).
