Competition: Europa League
Market: Manchester United wins
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Manchester United are just about to finish the job on Thursday night, and travel to The Stadio Olimpico when they face Roma this week.
Starting with the hosts, while Roma may have managed to take a shock in front at Old Trafford last week, it quickly became an evening to forget about the Italian outfit. Finally hit with a throbbing 6-2 defeat in Manchester and with their Europa League adventure anything but gone up in smoke, it was announced on Tuesday that Jose Mourinho will replace current boss Paulo Fonseca at the end of the season. Continuing on what has undoubtedly been their worst campaign, I Giallorossi was last seen over the weekend as he set up a new worrying display. Hit by a deserved 2-0 loss out at Sampdoria and only showing a series of problems at the back, Roma have lost each of their last three matchups across all formats and are in the middle of a six-match winless race.
After visitors from Sunday’s meeting against rivals Liverpool were exposed after the scenes at Old Trafford, Manchester United will be desperate to return their attention to duties on the pitch this week. With many toppling the Reds like a landslide to lift this year’s Europa League crown, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men still need to be strengthened by the fantastic balls at home seven days ago. With both Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes grabbing themselves a splash, the Premier League giants stormed their way to this 6-2 victory and they simply have their goal of finishing the job in midweek. With it all but confirmed that they have booked a Champions League return for next season, United have really jumped back from their FA Cup defeat against Leicester back on 21 March.
