IT was one out of two for Jordan yesterday with the expected bet coming in and the long shot failing.

The Man United fan's been looking carefully at tonight's Europa League card and here's his thoughts and tips.

He says: I posted this a few weeks ago when I first had my thread and thinking we had hit a vein of form. I thought United would be good for a couple of goals in Denmark tonight.

A 2-1 defeat against Sunderland and no Wayne Rooney and I’m starting to regret taking this bet but in all seriousness, as much as Rooney is huge to us, I do think we play can just as good without him when taking into consideration Midtjylland’s last competitive game was in December.

You sort of saw just how well these teams do after their winter breaks. Lokomotiv Moscow were beaten in Turkey on Tuesday as were Zenit who were unlucky to concede a late goal in Portugal.

LVG’s squad is wearing thin. Probably with patience but more so with actual bodies and we have taken a young set of players to Denmark for the first leg: De Gea, Romero, Love, McNair, Smalling, Blind, Poole, Riley, Carrick, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Lingard, Pereira, Weir, Mata, Memphis, Martial, Keane.

I think the only two youngsters out of that squad who will start will be Donald Love and Joe Riley who will likely play at either full-back position.

Jesse Lingard sat next to van Gaal at the press conference and with his good form he’ll likely get a starting role. I think the only question now is will Van Gaal deploy Memphis or Herrera.

To me this type of game would suit Memphis as it's the same type of team he would have faced in the Eredivisie but he’s still a raw talent and has a lot to learn.

Herrera would be the better option for experience and would be a better partnership with Mata who will likely sit behind Martial. That’s my thinking anyway.

I still think we can score twice but obviously the risk is greater than I expected a few weeks ago so I would advise not to go so high if you do but over 1.5 Manchester United Team Goals is available at 21-20 with Coral.

United were still being backed up until the Rooney news but has now drifted back on to the Danes. Still think the Rooney loss could be over-exaggerated but we shall see.

Manchester United Over 1.5 Team Goals (10-11, William Hill) 4.4 points (6pm)

There are a few more teams that haven’t had competitive games for some time which includes Molde who face a tough test in Seville. The Norwegians were unbeaten away from home in their group in wins against Fenerbahce and Celtic, with a draw in Amsterdam against Ajax.

They’ll head to another home fortress but this one will likely be the toughest with Sevilla winning 17 of their 20 home games in all competitions this season.

Jurgen Klopp heads back to Germany for their trip to Augsburg who haven’t disappointed when backing goals at home in their group games. Each game saw BTTS and Over 2.5 Goals, losing 3-2 to Bilbao, 3-1 against Serbian side Partizan Belgrad, and a 4-1 win against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar. Liverpool are unbeaten away from home in Europe this season and should score with Daniel Sturridge back and already in scoring form.

      recoba, they should win but I’m not taking them at that price.
      As has been pointed out the Danes haven’t played competitively since December 10 against Bruges in the EL and have sold centre-half Erik Sviatchenko to Celtic and have key man Jakob Poulsen banned.

    Cover there on the United goals at good odds (7/4 @ William Hill) but I’m leaving it as still need a lot to happen for the other bets to land. Would advise cover if you only took the United goals.

    Seething with this. Haven’t seen two contrasting halves. Bombarded the Danes goal first half, Memphis scores. Second half, think we’ve had one decent chance when Lingard hit the bar and that’s it. No changes from LVG until we go behind. Playing for draws. Not good enough. Pathetic in fact.

    Forgot to mention cover could be taken on the treble with Liverpool not to score but I’m not bothering. Take the hit if need be.

  8. Jordan 3 years ago

    No winners tonight but plenty of eggs laid at the Jordan residence. LVG blamed Murphys Law for tonights loss, so I’ll do the same :D Both main bets could have been covered but after Uniteds first half I honestly thought we’d get the second, but gradually faded away in the second half. Felt Liverpool were going to score too un Germany and had their chances.

    Another great week of English teams in European competitions then. Good luck Arsenal.

    Hopefully a bit of value in Mexico and Australia overnight for me.

    First game is the Copa Libertadores which is the biggest cup competition in the Americas so I’m going to take my chances that Pumas will be playing a decent squad. Emelec come from a small city in Ecuador down by the coast and have a capacity of 12,000 in their home stadium and will be travelling up ‘literally’ to Mexico City where they’ll be playing at a much higher altitude than they’re used to. They have only won two away game in the Copa Libertadores in the past 8 years and their most recent losses in Mexico were 2-0 and 3-0 wins.

    Be interesting to see what the altitude does second half but they should struggle here against a Pumas side who are generally better at home. Taking a chance they play a decent side being an important cup game.

    Copa Libertadores – 3:00AM

    Pumas UNAM Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 32/25 @ 888 – 2 points

    Morning game takes us to Australia where two of the A-Leagues in form teams square off for a showdown. The Victory haven’t lost at home since April last year and have only drawn twice since then. They’ll host Adelaide who are unbeaten in their last 11 A-League games, so this is a tough one to predict. Not looking for goals here though, only a goalscorer. Winger Kosta Barbarouses is suspended for the Victory so they’re an attacking threat down, but luckily they still have one of the most clinical finishers in the A-League over the past couple of seasons, and he loves scoring against Adelaide. Besart Berisha leads the Victory and is second in the charts with 14 goals. Scoring 3 in his last 3, and has scored 11 goals against Adelaide n his four year A-League spell. Only Perth Glory (12) have conceded more goals to Berisha than Adelaide, who are level with Melbourne City on 11. Adelaide conceded twice last time away from home against statistically the leagues worst team overall and at home and were without a defender through suspension. They will be without him once more against the only undefeated team at home this season.

    Australia A-League – 8:40AM

    Besart Berisha (Melbourne Victory) Anytime @ 23/20 @ Bet Victor – 1 point

    Adelaide have a fair amount of players who pop up and score but an outside shot if they can grab one would be Marcelo Carrusca who has scored in this fixture in the last three games. Strangely enough all penalties. 7/2 with PP for Anytime but some might think Adelaide to score a penalty @ 17/2 @ PP is fairly big. I do ?

    These are not Fridays main bets.
