May 11: Europa League Betting Preview


JOSE MOURINHO has made reaching the Europa League final his No.1 priority in recent weeks and Man United should make it tonight.

They kick off 1-0 up against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford and the margin should be greater.

United were streets ahead of the Spanish in the away leg and only poor finishing kept the score down.

Mourinho made eight changes for the defeat at Arsenal on Sunday and the likes of Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Daley Blind, Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini will return.

I tipped Rashford to net in Vigo and he is 11-8 at bet365 to score again. This time though I’m backing Henrikh Mkhitaryan at 7-4 with 888sport.

United are 4-7 with bet365 and William Hill to add to their lead and 8-5 with Hills to win to nil.

Mourinho’s men are unbeaten at Old Trafford since September and haven’t lost by more than a goal at home for more than three years.

A 1-0 Celta win that forces extra time pays 13-2 at William Hill and the Spanish side are 7-1 at Marathonbet to qualify.

Celta beat Shakhtar Donetsk earlier in the tournament after losing the home leg 1-0 so can’t be completely dismissed although they’ve lost momentum with four La Liga defeats running while fielding weakened teams.

United’s last eight matches in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals and Celta have netted just one in five so consider under 2.5 goals at evens with Betfred.

The other tie is all over barring a miraculous comeback by Lyon who lost 4-1 away to Ajax.

Lyon are 5-1 at BetStars to qualify and will be boosted by the return to star striker Alexandre Lacazette who is 3-1 at McBookie to score first.

Ajax could have netted 10 at home but this will be a test of nerve for their kids who took a 2-0 lead to Schalke in the quarters and conceded three before netting an away goal.

Back Lyon to win at 7-10 with Betfred and try over 3.5 goals at evens assuming the home side will give it a go and Ajax nick an away strike.

Bets to Consider

Man Utd v Celta Vigo under 2.5 goals

Mkhitaryan to score

Lyon v Ajax over 3.5 goals

Lacazette to score first

    Can get Mkhitaryan 1st goal scorer at 6/1 on skybet.

    If the thinking is under 2.5 then this might be worth a few quid as there the single goal might decide the game.
