Man United v Sevilla: Solid Red Devils should beat patchy visitors
Manchester United pulled off yet another impressive home win on Saturday, with a crucial 2-1 triumph over rivals Liverpool. And they look set for more success at Old Trafford against Sevilla.
Jose Mourinho’s men have won 22 of their 25 games in M16 this season, and face a Rojiblancos side lacking consistency. Currently fifth in La Liga, they’ve lost six of their last 12.
Man United are 6/10 to Win on the night, and thus guarantee progression. A draw in 90 minutes is 3/1, with odds of 9/2 for a Sevilla victory.
The Red Devils have conceded just three times in their seven prior UCL games this term, including that first-leg shutout in Spain. United to Win to Nil is available at odds of 9/5. There’s a slightly shorter 20/23 on Both Teams to Score – No.
The signs certainly don’t point to a goalfest. None of United’s last six home games have thrown up more than three goals, and the first leg of this one was – let’s be honest – pretty dull. Under 2.5 Goals is 23/20, while Under 3.5 is a 4/9 shot.
Romelu Lukaku produced a stellar display against Jurgen Klopp’s men at the weekend, and already has four UCL goals under his belt this term. The Belgian is 6/5 to Score Anytime, while he’s 4/1 to bag two or more for the fifth time this season.
One interesting stat is how often United have won games 2-0 in recent times. Mourinho’s charges have pulled off four victories by that scoreline in their past 14 games. Another 2-0 Red Devils win is available at 7/1.
Meanwhile, the hosts are 13/4 to Win Both Halves, a feat they’ve managed 11 times so far this season.
