Manchester United 5/1 favourites to win the Europa League
Manchester United have been installed as favourites to win the Europa League this season.
Following their dramatic exit from the Champions League on Tuesday night, our traders immediately responded by placing them at 5/1 in the betting to win Europe’s second stage.
The Red Devils have moved ahead of Tottenham (6/1), Arsenal (7/1) and Leicester (10/1) in a market heavily dominated by English sides.
United won the Europa League in 2017 after beating Ajax in Stokholm thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Could they go all the way in Gdansk in 2021 to lift the trophy for a second time in their history?
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Man United fans may still be thinking about the bad news, but every cloud has a silver lining and as things stand they’ve jumped straight to the head of the Europa League betting.”
