Manchester United will be hoping to build on their impressive opening Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain when they welcome RB Leipzig to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
They are 6/5 (2.20) favourites with bet365 to follow that up with another big win in their own back yard, despite winning just once in eight matches in all competitions on home turf.
RB Leipzig have won six and lost none of their seven matches so far this campaign and can be backed at 11/5 (3.20) to pull off a high profile victory here.
Just three of the guests’ previous17 matches in this competition have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 5/2 (3.50) available on them playing out a stalemate in this one.
Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard are injured for the home side, although Anthony Martial is available once again after missing Saturday’s Premier League draw with Chelsea due to suspension.
Amadou Haidara, Nordi Mukiele, Konrad Laimer and Lukas Klostermann are all ruled out due to injury.
Although victory in Paris was a shock, it is actually seemingly in keeping with the Red Devils’ recent of performing better against stellar opposition than less-fancied opposition.
Their failure to perform when billed as favourites is underlined by the lack of recent wins on home turf, particularly as they have lost four of their last six in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Julian Nagelsmann will relish his side’s underdog tag, having taken them all the way to the Champions League semi-finals last season and top of the Bundesliga so far this campaign.
In fact, Leipzig are surely worth backing at 5/4 (2.25) in the draw no bet market considering United’s inconsistent recent performances.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
