Benfica v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th October 2017

Manchester United
Benfica v Manchester United Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 18th October 7.45pm Benfica suffered their largest Champions League defeat as they were smashed 5-0 by Basel on Match Day Two. How did Manchester United fare against Basel? They hammered then 3-0 so this doesn’t look good for Benfica. The Portuguese outfit are floundering at the bottom of Group A with no points on the board while Manchester United have a 100% record from their opening games, both big wins. The Red Devils should be able to keep their momentum going and continue to press further supremacy at the top of the pile.

Benfica v Manchester United Betting Tips

It hasn’t been a great start to the campaign in Group A for Benfica who really need a win in this one to keep their qualification hopes realistically alive. That is because they have not picked up a point from their opening two games and they suffered their heaviest ever UEFA Champions League defeat on match day two. They were hammered 5-0 by FC Basel and that was after opening with a surprise home defeat against CSKA Moscow. So the Portuguese side are in a little bit of trouble in the group now and they aren’t exactly in great European form because they have won just one of their last six games in Europe home and away and are on a three match losing streak. With that having been said though, their loss against CSKA Moscow on match day one is their only defeat in their last 12 home games in Europe. It is hard to see them taking a win in this one really. A draw is probably the best they could shoot for. Last season they picked up just four points from their three home games in the group stage, losing against Napoli, drawing with Besiktas and beaten Dynamo Kiev. They did manage to get out of the group last season though but they were stopped in the round of sixteen by Borussia Dortmund. Last season they won the double in Portugal but not even their current league form is really much to really inspire them to a win. This may be a tight game as United don’t need to break much of a sweet and under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power is a price of 4/5. Even though Benfica have to come out and throw something at this game, they probably don't have the quality to really trouble Manchester United too much. The shortest priced options in the Paddy Power correct score market are the 1-1 draw and a 1-0 win for United at 11/2. The Red Devils have played Benfica nine times before and United have won six of those nine games. They have lost just once against the Portuguese side before and that was back in December 2005. The most recent meetings were in the 2011/12 Champions League group stage when United won 1-0 in Portugal and drew 1-1 at home, ending up in third place in the group. Manchester United have comfortably won their opening matches in the group stage this season, beating Basel 3-0 at Old Trafford and then they hammered CSKA Moscow 4-1. The last time that Manchester United went to Portugal they took a 3-1 win at SC Braga in the 2012/13 Champions League Group Stage and they are on a three match winning streak there. The Red Devils have suffered just one loss in their last 14 European games (the Super Cup defeat against Real Madrid in the summer) in a W10 D3 L1 record and they are on a five match unbeaten streak of European form out on the road (W4 D2) since a loss against Fenerbahce on match day four of last season's Europa League. On the weekend Manchester United parked the bus at Anfield and earned a 0-0 draw, but other than that performance, they have been pretty positive this season in getting bodies forward, particularly on the counter attack. Romelu Lukaku is a Paddy Power 10/11 anytime goalscorer for the match and he is carrying enough form to do some damage to a Benfica defence which hasn’t withstood much so far this season. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are going as 7/4 joint second favourites. Defensively, and helped out by David de Gea between the sticks, United have been very strong at the back and you have a price of 15/8 at Paddy Power on Manchester United to win to nil. United are on an 11 match unbeaten streak of form in all competitions since losing to Real Madrid in the Super Cup, with nine wins in that sequence. You would expect them to get the better of a Benfica side who have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions.

Benfica v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 3/4, Draw 13/5, Benfica 15/4

Benfica v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United to win: This should be a pretty routine victory for the Red Devils who are cruising already in an easy group. With the results that Benfica have put up so far, as desperate as they are, they aren’t going to make a big impact against the Premier League side. Back United to win to nil.

Boylesports offer Double Winnings on Liverpool v Man Utd

The Anfield clash on Saturday lunchtime between Liverpool and Manchester United is the feature game of the weekend.

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 12.30pm What makes this one so interesting is not only the high-profile nature of the clash but because this is the first time this season that Manchester United will have been tested against a top six side from last season. United have put together a good season so far having dropped only two points, but how will they stand up to the quick Liverpool attack? The Reds have home advantage and while inconsistencies have plagued them this season, they need a big performance to shift some momentum and maybe this is the game it happens in.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Tips

What a game to kick off the Premier League return with. Liverpool needs a big performance in this one to land a victory that could really spark their season into life. So far this season, their returns in the top flight have been a little disappointing with a W3 D3 L1 record having been posted by Jurgen Klopp’s men. They are unbeaten though at home in the Premier League with a W2 D1 record with wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, but their most recent home game saw them frustrated in a 1-1 draw with Burnley. Liverpool’s attack has either not been clinical enough on the day, or shoddy defending has let them down. Not everything has come together often enough for them. But they are a talented, positive squad and are favourites because they handled themselves well against the other top six last term. With each of the last five between these two having produced two goals or less, under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks a bit of value at even money. Last Six Premier League Head to Head Man Utd 1 - 1 Liverpool Liverpool 0 - 0 Man Utd Liverpool 0 - 1 Man Utd Man Utd 3 - 1 Liverpool Liverpool 1 - Man Utd 2 Man Utd 3 - 0 Liverpool

Liverpool vs Manchester United 2017 Infographic

The two fixtures between United and Liverpool in the top flight last season both ended in a draw. In the anytime goalscorer market, Liverpool’s shortest priced options are Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino at 6/4 while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are at 13/8. Liverpool to win to nil is 7/2 at bet365 and that would be on the back of them having collected two clean sheets in three league home games this season and having blanked United in their last two home games against them (one Premier League, one Europa League). Both teams not to score in this fixture at bet365 returns a price of 6/5. Because of their patchy form, this suddenly becomes a high pressure game for Liverpool who start seven points back of the Red Devils in the league standings. Back in August, they caused a stir in destroying Arsenal at Anfield, can they do the same to the Red Devils? They have only gone W1 D4 L1 in all competitions in their last six games, so aren’t necessarily carrying great form so would need to raise their game. Current League Form (most recent last) Liverpool WWLDWD Man Utd WWDWWW Manchester United have had a solid and comfortable start to the season. They have only conceded two goals now in their last nine Premier League games stretching back to the end of the last term. They are ticking over in great form at the moment with them being on a six match winning streak going across all competitions. However, their fixture list so far has favoured them a lot and this will be the first time this season that they have faced any of the teams who are currently sitting inside of the top ten in the table. So they really haven’t been tested at all, so how will their defence stand up against a good attack? United have six clean sheets in their seven games and United to win t nil at bet365 is a 9/2 price. Out on the road, they have gone W2D1, the dropped points coming in a draw at Stoke. When they went to St Mary’s in their last league away game they had a real test against Southampton and had to get out of Dodge with a 1-0 win. But Liverpool will threaten them a lot more than the Saints did. Romelu Lukaku, who has seven Premier League goals this season is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at a price of 7/2. The Red Devils have suffered just the one loss in their last eight games across all competitions against Liverpool in a W4 D3 L1 record They are winless in their last four against them though in a D3 L1 record. The Red Devils have shown this season, especially late on in games, that they are a powerful side on the counter attack. Against a Liverpool side who like to throw men forward, that could work well in their favour. But there will be question marks over they handle their first real test of the league season.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Odds

Liverpool 8/5, Manchester United 13/8, Draw 12/5

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions

Draw: There is no clear picture of how United’s defence will stand up to a stern test, while Liverpool haven’t been able to put a winning performance together for a while and remain vulnerable at the back. Therefore backing the recent trend of drawn matches between them should offer value.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th September 2017

Manchester United
Manchester United v Crystal Palace Betting Preview - Premier League 30th September 3.00pm The Red Devils will probably be licking their lips at this one. After a midweek excursion in Europe, they will look forward to one of their easier home games at Old Trafford this season in the Premier League. The Red Devils are rolling along and came through a stern test at Southampton last weekend. As for Crystal Palace, nothing is still happening for them and with them in the midst of a tough run of fixtures, there is not a lot of light at the end of the tunnel for them.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Betting Tips

Manchester United have remained unbeaten this season in the Premier League and they have kept up the pressure on leaders Manchester City well. This should be a relatively easy game for them on paper. The Red Devils have won each of their league home games this season with a clean sheet and therefore for Man Utd v Crystal Palace betting, a Manchester United to win to nil at bet365 is a price of 4/6. The Red Devils have five clean sheets in their six league outings this year and considering that Palace have yet to score a single goal, it’s unlikely that they are going to get their breakthrough this weekend at Old Trafford. So this fixture is expected to be pretty comfortable for the Red Devils and in the bet365 correct score market a Manchester United 2-0 result is the shortest priced option at 5/1 and the Red Devils are 11/2 to win 3-0. This will be on the back of their midweek Champions League action, let’s not forget. Manchester United have the home from going against Crystal Palace as well in the top flight, as they have won each of their last four against the Eagles in the north west. Three of those four wins in that sequence were by a 2-0 scoreline. Romelu Lukaku has been enjoying a profitable season with his new club and he is 4/7 to score anytime in the game, while he is naturally the 2/1 First Goalscorer favourite at bet365. United have won eight of their last nine games against Palace in all competitions (D1) so everything points to Mourinho’s men picking up another win at Old Trafford this season. They should coast and under 2.5 goals at a price of 5/4 could be a decent value to consider. Over the goal line will return a price of 4/7. So will the Red Devils be the next in line to keep the Eagles winless and goalless? For Crystal Palace, this has been a start beyond their wildest nightmares. It has been dreadful and luck has apparently deserted them a bit as well. Six games played and six defeats along with no goals and they were humiliated last weekend as Manchester City tore them apart at the Etihad, thumping the Eagles 5-0. In total, the Londoners have conceded 13 goals which is more than an average of two per game from them. So two games under Roy Hodgson and still no change of fortunes and after this, they have to face Chelsea, so the tough games keep on coming. A turning point will come, but when? Away from home in the top flight this season, the Eagles have had reasonable defeats at Liverpool and Manchester City, which isn’t that shocking, but their defeat at Burnley was a big confidence downer for them. It could be another long afternoon for them.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/6, Draw 6/1, Crystal Palace 16/1

Manchester United v Crystal Palace Predictions

Man Utd to win: The Red Devils should pretty much cruise in this one and the home side to win to nil is going to be one of the big bets of the weekend that punters will jump on. This should be as routine as it gets at home for Jose Mourinho’s men this season.

CSKA Moscow v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 27th September 2017

Manchester United
CSKA Moscow v Manchester United Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 27th September 7.45pm A long trip out east for Manchester United on Wednesday night then as they face CSKA Moscow. The Red Devils comfortably took a win over Basel on home soil a fortnight ago and will probably have to show a fair degree of patience in this tricky away game. CSKA Moscow sprung a surprise in winning at Benfica on Match Day One, but they aren’t a particularly great side and the Red Devils will be going to Russia as favourites to keep their winning momentum going.

CSKA Moscow v Manchester United Betting Tips

This is a battle for an early lead in Group A of the group stage, as both were winners on match day one. This is the fifth season running that CSKA Moscow are in the group stage of the competition, but they haven’t had much luck in the other four. They have finished bottom of their group in each of their last four appearances. Last season they finished behind Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen and Spurs. However, they have shown a bit of European form this season with a five match winning streak (including qualifying) and collected a clean sheet in each of their first four. They did spring a surprise with a 2-1 win at Benfica on match day one. Their win over Benfica was their first Group Stage Champions League win since September 2015 against PSV Eindhoven, subsequently, their record had been D4 L6. Before they beat AEK Athens 1-0 in the third qualifying round, they were on a five match winless streak at home in Europe but have won their last two there. Their away win against AEK in the qualifiers ended CSKA run of ten European matches without a win (D4 L6). There probably won’t be a lot of goals around in this and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 3/4. CSKA won two of their first three home games against English clubs, but none of the last five (D2 L3). Their overall record against English clubs is W3 D5 L9. Manchester United are clear favourites for this one. They opened comfortably with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford over Basel and they have away form in Europe as well. They are unbeaten in their last five road games in Europe with a W3 D2 record since a 2-1 loss at Fenerbahce on matchday four of last season's UEFA Europa League. Last season United went up against Russia opponents as they faced Rostov in the Europa League round of 16. The Red Devils took a 1-1 draw in Russia, with a 1-0 victory over them at home. United's overall record against Russian clubs is W3 D7 L1, and away it is W1 D4 L0. The Red Devils have been looking very strong this season and Romelu Lukaku is the 21/20 bet365 anytime goalscorer favourite with Marcus Rashford at 5/4. Rashford has six goals in his last eight appearances for club and country. Lukaku has scored in his last six games for club and country. The Red Devils are a price of 13/8 to win to nil. It’s just a matter of getting a win for United here, the performance doesn’t need bells and whistles and in the bet365 correct score market, a Manchester United 1-0 win fetches a price of 5/1.

CSKA Moscow v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 4/6, Draw 13/5, CSKA Moscow 17/4

CSKA Moscow v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United to win: It’s worth backing United to get through this fixture. It’s about winning, not a great performance here. They can keep the hosts at arm's length and they have enough match winners in their ranks to grab the victory. Away win.

Southampton v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd September 2017

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Preview - Premier League 23rd September 3.00pm The Saints have had a decent season in terms of points on the board as they are right there with the likes of Liverpool and Spurs. Their scoring output needs a huge improvement through if they are going to carry themselves further. Their success has all been off their defence this season but it will get tested by Manchester United. The Red Devils are averaging over three goals per game this season and will fancy their chances on the south coast.

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Saints have been steady if unspectacular this season in the top flight. They have amassed eight points from five games in a W2 D2 L1 record so far. At home, they have gone W1 D1 L1 so haven’t nailed consistency yet. They haven’t looked a potent force going forward this season as they have failed to score in three of their five league games this season. The reverse of that is a positive as they have picked up three clean sheets in five games. So that suggests that they could keep the score down in this at least and under 2.5 goals at bet365 bring home a price of 3/4. They have been having issues producing up front though and if they could only increase their scoring output then they would be a much bigger threat. They are lacking a clinical punch up top and Charlie Austin and Manolo Gabbiadini are 9/4 options in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for this one. Last season the Saints ran into United three times, twice in the league and once in the EFL Cup and the best they got out of that was a 0-0 draw at home in this corresponding league fixture. The Saints have won just one of their last five games against the Red Devils and they haven’t beaten them at St Mary's in any of their last nine. So punters won’t see tremendous value in the Saints pulling out a win here. But the Red Devils will head into European action in midweek, so they may have one eye on that. Manchester United have been a powerful force in front of goal this season, averaging over three goals per game this season. On three separate occasions so far they have scored exactly four goals and have netted at least two in each of their games. Romelu Lukaku netted again last weekend as they beat his old club Everton and he is the 7/2 First Goalscorer favourite at bet365 and 11/10 in the anytime goalscorer market. Both teams not to score at bet365 fetches a price of 10/11 and that could be value as United have picked up four clean sheets in five league games this season. On the back of that, Manchester United to win to nil returns a price of 15/8 and that looks some big value to take on the game. Twelve of United’s sixteen goals have happened after half time this season and therefore you could back the Saints to at least hold firm until the break by going for a Draw/Manchester United half time/full time bet which is a price of 10/3 at bet365.

Southampton v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd 5/6, Draw 12/5, Southampton 7/2

Southampton v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United to win: At the end of the day, you have to put the ball in the back of the net to win and United are more capable of doing that than Southampton are at the moment. So United can continue their strong start to the season by picking up a win in a low-scoring game.

Palace 7/1 to go scoreless in their next three Premier League games

Crystal Palace
When will Crystal Palace land a league win this season? When will they score their first league goal? It has been such a tough start to the season for the Eagles, who saw boss Frank de Boer last just 77 days in his job before being replaced by Roy Hodgson, that there actually isn’t much light at the end of the tunnel for them. They head out on the road to face Manchester City on the weekend and the follows a trip to Manchester United before facing Chelsea at Selhurst Park. So a horrible run of fixtures coming up for the pointless bottom side. Hodgdon took charge for the first against Southampton last weekend and couldn’t stop the Palace rot as they lost 1-0. So Palace are rooted to the foot of the table after five league games, with no goals on the board and eight conceded. They became the first side in Premier League history, following their 1-0 loss against Southampton, to not score in any of their opening five games of a new season. So with a tough run of fixtures coming up, when will things get better for the Eagles? Bet365 have priced up odds of 14/1 on Palace to take a win over Manchester City or against Manchester City to get their first league win of the season. Alternatively, if they come away without a win in both of their trips to Manchester, then they are a 6/1 punt to get their first league win of the season on the board against Chelsea on October 14th. While they have managed to score in a couple of EFL Cup games this season, it hasn’t happened in the league yet for them. They are even money to score their first goal of the season at the Etihad against Manchester City on the weekend, or if you think that they will come away empty handed there, they are a quote of 5/2 at bet365 to score their first league goal of the season at Old Trafford. They are a price of 4/1 to have it happen against Chelsea or if you think that after their next three Premier League games the Eagles still won't have found the back of the net, you have a 7/1 price on their opening goal coming against someone else. If you look at least season’s corresponding fixtures that Palace are heading into, they lost 5-0 at Man City, 2-0 at Manchester United and 1-0 against Chelsea at home, so didn’t manage a goal in any of them. That is a bold old punt though to expect them to dial to find the back of the net in any of their next three fixtures. The Eagles remain 10/11 outright favourites in the bet365 Premier League Relegation market and they were recently priced up at 1,000/1 to go the entire season without landing a win in the top flight.

Man City shorten for Premier League title, while Palace shorten for drop

Manchester City
The Citizens showed some six-appeal on the weekend as they smashed Watford at Vicarage Road. Pep Guardiola’s men have had some week. They destroyed Liverpool 5-0 on the 9th, crushed Feyenoord 4-0 in midweek in the UEFA Champions League and then put a 6-0 victory on the board over Watford. So it appears that they are up and running fully now and after making their breakthrough after half an hour at Vicarage Road, Man City’s performance was sublime. The Manchester City squad is growing in stature and togetherness and the players now look confident and eager to get on the ball. Sergio Aguero netted what was the sixth hattrick of his Manchester City career and he helped the Citizens to hold top spot in the Premier League at the end of the weekend, sat on 13 points from five games level with rivals Manchester United and three points clear of reigning champions Chelsea who sit in third after their 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Sunday. Chelsea’s failure to beat a stubborn Arsenal saw the Blues go on the drift a little bit for the League title out at 11/2 with William Hill. Manchester City were shortened to 2.1 at Betfair after their result against Watford on the weekend, while Manchester United have also been cut as their fine season marches on. The Red Devils are 5/2 to get their hands on the Premier League title this season and it would seem that their greatest rivals City are the one ones standing between them and doing it. Tottenham and Liverpool, after both were held to frustrating draws on the weekend, have been on the drift in the William Hill Premier League outright winner market. The Reds, after a home draw with Burnley, are now a big 20/1 shot to win the title, with Tottenham having slipped back to 14/1. With the two Manchester clubs going well at the summit, there are some interesting prices in the Premier League Top Four 4 Finish market, with Spurs holding ground at 4/5 with Liverpool at even money and Arsenal shortening over the weekend to 3/2. At the other end of the table, Crystal Palace’s forgettable season continued as they made it five defeats on the bounce and still no goal. After showing Frank de Boer the door and bringing in Roy Hodgson, there was no change in the result for the Eagles as they lost out against Southampton. Palace are now 10/11 odds on favourites to suffer relegation from the Premier League this season, followed by Brighton at 11/10 and Huddersfield at 13/8.
