Memphis Depay to 5/2 score and Manchester United to beat PSV Eindhoven

Coral’s latest delicious bet of the day focuses on the thrilling Champions League fixture between Manchester United and PSV Eindhoven, where Memphis Depay is priced at 5/2 to score with the Red Devils to win, in a marvellous match special (maximum stake £20).

Louis van Gaal’s guys require just three points, which they are odds-on favourites at 1/2 to snatch, to ensure qualification from Champions League Group B.

Memphis main danger for old Dutch friends

Former PSV star Memphis made a splash on his return to the Philips Stadion when Man Utd journeyed to Eindhoven back in September, as he struck the opener against his old club before celebrating unashamedly. In characteristically confident style, the Dutch dangerman danced through the defence before finishing through the keeper’s legs low and to the right.

It was a classy strike, and Memphis’ magic has contributed to nine successful Man Utd moves in 17 appearances since arriving in summer, with five of his own goals clocked-up plus four excellent assists.

With doubts over the fitness of strikers Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial, Memphis could well operate as the focal forward point in the hosts’ attack again, after inspiring Manchester United to victory against Watford last time out in the Premier League.

Seemingly thriving on the responsibility of being the main man, Memphis heaped misery on the Hornets with a well-placed opening volley and will be eager to add another to his tally.

Man Utd a menace on home turf

Undefeated at Old Trafford during normal time all term, the Red Devils have shown they can run rampant on home soil, where they showed plenty of promise against last Champions League opponents CSKA Moscow.

In 21 matches across all competitions so far, Northwest giants Man Utd have tasted defeat just three times in 90 minutes, making this match a tough task for PSV, especially with the Red Devils bouncing into this battle after three wins in a row.
