United To Be Too Strong

Jose Mourinho's men made hard work of qualifying as runners up from Group A earlier this term but they have been much-improved of late, losing just one of their past 22 games in all competitions (won fifteen, drawn six) to move up to sixth place in the Premier League and they already have a League Cup final to look forward to.

Mourinho can afford to put out a strong team on Thursday as they have Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup at the weekend and that ensures they are worthy 1/3 favourites at Old Trafford (Betfred).

The Red Devils are unbeaten at home since 10th September (won thirteen, drawn six) and it is worth noting that nine of their past thirteen wins on home soil came by a margin of two goals or more. With that in mind, the 10/11 for Untied to beat St Etienne with a -1 goal handicap is well worth a look (
Match Odds:

Pogba v Pogba

The match could see Paul Pogba come up against his older brother, Florentin, who plays for a St Etienne side that qualified for the last 32 as winners of Group C. Christophe Galtier's side are riding high in fifth place in the French Ligue 1 thanks to some impressive form at home but their efforts on the road leave plenty to be desired.

St Etienne have kept just one clean sheet in their past nine away games in all competitions and they will do well to keep Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co. at bay.

Zlatan Is The Man

Ibrahimovic, who has notched 20 goals for United this season, has scored two in three Europa League starts this term and he has tended to thrive against this week's opponents. The 35-year-old scored 14 goals in 13 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain against St Etienne during his time in France and he is 29/10 to score first or 8/11 to score at anytime (Bet Victor).

The Swedish striker can set United on their way at Old Trafford, where they will be looking to secure another big European win after thumping Fenerbahce 4-1 and Feyenoord 4-0 there this season.
