Man Utd 13/10 to win either half against Liverpool
The first ever continental clash between Northwest giants Liverpool and Manchester United just had to feature in our latest bet of the day, as the Premier League pair are pitted against one another for an exciting Europa League last 16 first leg.
Fancy a flutter on the Red Devils, but don’t want to go all the way and dabble on a Mancunian victory in 90 minutes at the cauldron that is Anfield? Our excellent 13/10 price for Man Utd to win either half of their first leg contest on Merseyside offers customers something a little different.
Be it the first or final 45, all Louis van Gaal’s guys have to do is emerge triumphant from one half, regardless of the final scoreline. Where else could you find such a generous price for a Man Utd match than with Coral?
Read on to find out why we think the Red Devils will run riot and deal damage to Jurgen Klopp’s crew in at least fifty per cent of the clash…
Red Devils run rampant against local rivals
The red half of Manchester have a more than reliable recent record against their bitterest of rivals, with an excellent eight wins from their last 10 tussles with the Liverpudlians.
To boot, over the last two terms specifically, Man Utd have toppled the Reds in all four frays and, more importantly, came out tops in five of those eight halves.
Juan Mata, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial are among the match, or half, winners from those games, with all expected to be fit for Thursday’s thrilling battle.
While, Van Gaal’s army are actually in rather swashbuckling form, with four victories from their last five fixtures, in which they won five of their 10 halves.
With a taste for the big games, after pinching points twice from the Reds already plus Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, a motivated Man Utd look incredibly tasty at 13/10 to at least triumph in one 45 minute session of their upcoming adventure.
