Man United vs Zorya Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Manchester United’s recent wobbles can be put to bed when they host Zorya at Old Trafford on Thursday. The Ukrainian’s shouldn’t be taken lightly having just beat Kyiv away, but this is a very winnable game for the hosts. Below are our predictions, betting tips and preview.
Game: Manchester United vs Zorya FC
Venue: Old Trafford
Kick-off: Thursday 28th September, 8pm
Jose Mourinho and his United side came under heavy criticism after Watford inflicted a third defeat in a row on them. Luckily for them, thy were dug out by the fixture list as much as anything else. A midweek tie with Northampton provided them with a much needed win before they hosted a very out of sorts Leicester defence.
The problems that have been created in the United midweek were partially fixed with the resting of Wayne Rooney last week, but will Jose re-insert his
captain here? Luckily for United, they now face weak opposition here before hosting Stoke on the weekend, who just can’t play away from home at the
The fixture list has been a blessing for Mourinho. If United had been about to face the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, then we’d be looking at a very big gap to make up on Manchester City already.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
United are only 1/6 with Sky Bet which means little value on the win market, although Bet365 do go 1/8. The draw can be backed at 7/1 with Bet365. Zorya, 16/1 at some outlets, are currently 25/1 with Betfair. By definition that’s some value.
25/1 is a rather large price and it is there because this team are unlikely to beat United at home. That aid, we didn’t expect Watford to beat them either and they did. We wouldn’t have expected United midfield to look so out of sorts when they’ve spent 200m on it, but they have at times.
Some of you may see the value in just backing Zorya for the sake of the price – and I get that. It’s always worth a shot. The Ukrainian side are new to European competition, but they’re a good little side and recently they beat Dynamo Kyiv away from home.
For a team with Premier League title winners quality (when it clicks) Zorya should not be a problem, though. But it very much depends on how United perform on the night. Zorya showed they can be an attacking threat at this level against Fenerbache, and United games have featured goals. I think it’s a safer bet to back Over 3 goals at odds of 19/20 with Bet365.
I think United will keep moving forward here knowing the importance of stringing wins together right now, but they could have a sticky moment or two as Zorya provide a scare and get on the score sheet. Back Manchester United to win 3-1 at best odds 12/1 with Bet Victor.
Finally, we have to pick a goal scorer. The top dog here at Tipsters Review basically accused me of having a love affair with Zlatan Ibrahimovic this week,
so I would hate to let him down. Back the big sexy Swede to score at 4/6 with William Hill.
