Back Man Utd to swat away challenge of Rostov

Manchester United hopes of a hat-trick of cups this season ended earlier in the week when Jose Mourinho’s former employers, Chelsea, dumped his troops out of the FA Cup. However, the Portuguese coach will still be confident of adding the Europa League to the EFL Cup, and he’ll be expected to lead the Red Devils into the quarter-finals with a victory over Russian outfit Rostov on Thursday night.

  • Man Utd have won all 9 of their home cup matches this season, including 4 in the Europa League.
  • In Fact the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 22 matches at Old Trafford.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 26 goals so far this season.

Man Utd Stats | Rostov Stats

Man Utd unlikely to be ruffled by Rostov

Man Utd may be the short-priced 1/4 favourites for the win, but it’s unlikely to be a completely straightforward night, especially with skipper Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial both missing. However, it would still be an almighty shock if the hosts fail to qualify, with opponents Rostov out at 16/1 to win on the night. and 8/1 to progress.

United have been incredible strong at Old Trafford, accumulating 22 unbeaten matches, 15 of which they’ve been victorious in. The Red Devils are also nine for nine in home cup games this term, including four in the Europa League.

Our pick of the bets is a United win and under 3.5 goals at 20/23 (Coral), which has been the outcome of a dozen of the club’s last 16 triumphs in all competitions, including their last three wins in Europe.

United’s four Europa League home games have been 1-0, 4-1, 4-0 and 3-0, while seven of their nine home cup games have been won to nil, making this a decent option at 5/6 with Paddy Power, while scorelines of 3-0 (7/1) or 2-0 (5/1) appear the most likely outcomes.

Few are giving visiting Rostov a chance of upsetting the competition’s favourites - they’ve won just two of their 15 away games this term - yet the absence of a couple of United’s key players will give them optimism. Ivan Daniliants men were victorious away to Anderlecht while they’ve drawn away to Ajax, PSV and Sparta Prague, and they’re priced at 10/3 to avoid defeat at Old Trafford, with another 1-1 available at 11s

Man Utd & Under 3.5 Goals

Zlat Attack

Seems obvious but backing Ibrahimovic is worthwhile. United’s star man has bagged a lorry load of goals this season, 26, including a hat-trick in his side’s last Europa League home game against his former foes St Etienne. The Swede is the firm 13/5 favourite to open the scoring, 4/5 to net anytime, and 7/2 to score two or more, 10/3 to score a header (Sky Bet), and 10/11 (Ladbrokes) to score in a home win. Satisfied?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has scored pivotal goals in his last two Europa League appearances and can be backed at 21/10 find the net for the third time in a row, while he’s 5/1 to break the deadlock.

The visitors know they will have to take whatever chances come their way at Old Trafford. However, where there’s a will there’s a way, and Aleksandr Bukharov, who bagged the equaliser in the first-leg, can be found at 5/1 to grab another goal in the second.
