Manchester United in Must-Win Home Game

Memphis Depay Juan Mata Manchester United Europa League

As Manchester United flounders in the Barclays Premier League, they are on the brink of elimination in the Europa League and face a must-win situation Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • Five of Manchester United’s last six games have gone OVER 2.5 goals.
  • United winger Memphis Depay scored in the first leg and is +125 to score anytime Thursday.
  • Midtjylland has five losses and one draw in its last six matches away from home.

Online book Bet365 is offering United as -400 favorites at Old Trafford while Midtjylland is +1400 road dogs and the Draw is +550. OVER 2.5 goals is presently -163 and UNDER 2.5 goals is +125.

The Red Devils went into Denmark to face Midtjylland as -133 road faves for the first leg of the Europa League matchup and left with a 2-1 loss courtesy a 76’ minute goal from Ebere Paul Onuachu.

The defeat was just another in a long list of disappointing results for the Red Devils this season and with talisman Wayne Rooney still sidelined nursing a knee injury, the task at hand is a tough one for the struggling club.

They will be on a bit of a high after trumping Shrewsbury Town 3-0 in FA Cup action midweek, but when a win over the likes of Shrewsbury Town is a talking point, you are not in good form. To put United’s away defeat in a bit of perspective, Midtjylland is just third in the Danish Superliga and has just one win in their last five matches domestically.

United certainly doesn’t look like it will finish in the Champions League spots in the Premier League this season, so victory in the Europa League is vital. That starts with a win in front of their home fans Thursday.
