IT was great to get the weekend off to a winning start with my Bundesliga Bet Builder on Friday night and I'm hoping for more of the same on Saturday evening at Old Trafford.
Manchester United vs Chelsea (Saturday, 17:30)
Manchester United will be aiming to continue their mini-revival when they play host to Chelsea at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side started their Champions League campaign in style with a well-deserved 2-1 away Paris St-Germain, which came after a morale-boosting 4-1 win at Newcastle last Saturday night.
Chelsea, meanwhile, despite drawing 0-0 at home to Sevilla on Tuesday night, continue to display the defensive deficiencies that plagued them last term.
Frank Lampard's leaky backline crumbled last weekend when Southampton snatched a late equaliser during a thrilling 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Given both sides inconsistencies this season I'm going to steer clear of the more traditional markets here, however, there is an alternative angle that has caught my eye when making use of Bet 365's Bet Builder feature
The combination that I'm going to pull together to present us with a backable 4/5 punt is over one match goal, both teams to collect at least one card and Man United to take over two corners.
All seven of the Red Devils outings this season have produced three or more match goals, while four of Chelsea's last five top-flight tussles have featured three or more strikes.
With that in mind, coupled with the array of attacking talent that will be on show at Old Trafford, I'm more than happy to back at least two match goals during this dust-up.
What's more, there is plenty of potential for cynical fouls during this heavyweight showdown, and history shows that this fixture tends to be a fiery affair.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned combination has clicked in each of Manchester United's last two matches and that only adds to the appeal of siding with repeat in what should be an action-packed evening at Old Trafford.
