Bet On the Red Devils clash with a Milan

The draw for the last sixteen stage of the Europa League has been made and the tie of the round pits two European heavyweights against each other, with Manchester United clashing with a Milan team who have been riding high at the top of the Serie A table for much of the domestic campaign.

While the two clubs will value a top four finish much more than a Europa League success, they are now at the phase of the competition where the teams are just a handful of wins away from lifting a prestigious piece of silverware and we can expect the teams to be strong for this clash.

Manchester United Massive Betting Favourites

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw his Manchester United team make short work of Real Sociedad in the previous round and the bookies are taking no chances with their betting odds about the Red Devils triumphing at Old Trafford when Milan come to England.

If you compare the latest Europa League football betting odds, you will find that there is no bigger than 8/11 about United claiming a first leg advantage and they will be facing opponents who will be without the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is on the sidelines for a few weeks.

Zlatan was previously on the books at Old Trafford and enjoyed a successful time of things in the north-west of England, although his team-mates could struggle without him and United are a best price 8/15 to qualify for the last eight.

Bruno Fernandes was the architect of Sociedad’s downfall and the Portuguese is often the stand-out player on the pitch for United, although the defence is prone to the occasional creak and Solskjaer might feel compelled to rest a player or two.

Can Milan Pull Off a Victory at Old Trafford?

Considering there will be no supporters in the stadium, perhaps the betting odds of 9/2 about Milan winning is a decent price considering that Stefano Pioli’s team sit second in the Serie A table this season after winning sixteen of their twenty-four matches.

It should also be added that the Rossoneri have won ten of their twelve games on the road and they average two goals per match domestically, with Milan recently ending a four-game winless run by triumphing away to Roma and they’ll come into this match feeling confident of a positive result.

Although Ibrahimovic is missing in action, Ante Rebic has recently been among the goals for Milan and Fikayo Tomori is on loan from Chelsea and has slotted in well to the Rossoneri defence, with the young central defender being fully aware of United after having faced them before.

What Are the Best Bets for Man United v Milan?

We’re not sure that Manchester United are banker material for this clash and it could be a good deal closer than the match odds suggest, which means that Milan could be a spot of value if they decide to field their strongest possible team.

It was a changed team that earned a 2-2 draw at Red Star in the previous round before completing the job with a 1-1 scoreline and the visitors will surely want to get an away goal on the board having understood the importance of scoring on the road in the last round.

Therefore, the BTTS Yes betting option could be the way forward at 8/11 when you compare certain bookies and perhaps anyone wanting to back Manchester United could consider them with the BTTS Yes selection which is trading at 5/2.

The draw is trading at 14/5 with some bookies and it might be worth looking at a decent number of goals being scored, with Over 2.5 Goals trading at 4/5.
