Man Utd v Wolfsburg superboost to land with goals at both ends

Manchester United may be sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League, having finally clicked into a well oiled machine, and while they are heavy favourites to bag their first Champions League win of the season, punters will be hoping there are still some parts that are rusty.

That is, because Ladbrokes are offering an awesome in-play Superboost on the Red Devils’ Group Bencounter against Wolfsburg.

From 19:40 until the first goal is scored at Old Trafford, the bookmaker will be boosting the price on both teams to score from 8/11 to a massive 2/1!

Looking to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat against PSV Eindhoven a fortnight ago, there is every reason to believe that this price is one worth taking.

First off, with a defeat already to their name, United will be determined to bounce back with a win, and will undoubtedly press from an early stage.

But while the Germans were on the end of the well-documented Robert Lewandowski magic last week, they are capable of troubling their opponents on the road.

In their 19 competitive away matches in 2015 they have, on average scored two goals per game, netting three or more on six occasions.

Furthermore, British clubs seem to have a penchant for helping out goalsie backers in Europe this season.

Of the seven group stage matches involving British clubs in the Champions League and Europa League, six have seen both sides net. In fact, 11 of the last 16 have seen the two keepers picking the ball out of the onion bag.

It goes further than that though. In Louis van Gaal, United have the perfect man in charge to deliver on this count.

The Dutchman is an absolute both teams to score fiend. In his long and illustrious career he has taken charge of 75 matches in the UEFA Cup/Europa League and the Champions League. In 47 of those both teams have scored.

So with a manager who likes to please the neutrals, a British habit of not scoring without conceding and visitors who are capable of making David de Gea work, make sure you don’t miss out on this awesome price!
