The Champions League returns tonight and Manchester United are in action at Old Trafford in the second leg of their last 16 tie versus Sevilla. The first leg wasn’t exactly a classic at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as the match finished goalless.
The Red Devil’s beat Liverpool at the weekend courtesy of a fine brace from Marcus Rashford (£4.15) and the young Mancunian will surely be in line for a start tonight as the Old Trafford side aim to join both Liverpool and Manchester City in the quarterfinals. The United number 19 has enjoyed a fine week on the Index, rising 77p following his fine performance on Saturday, this coupled with the injury to Harry Kane (£9.04) has further enhanced his England chances for the World Cup and has seen traders but back futures by the shed load!
One of the main stories from the first leg was about how Paul Pogba (£4.15) was seemingly dropped by Jose Mourinho in favour of youngster Scott McTominay (£1.19) and it appears that the Frenchman will yet again not be present for the second leg as he didn’t train yesterday having missed the Liverpool game at the weekend, could the youngster step up and shine once more?
For those crucial match day dividends, you would expect United to see a lot more of the ball than they did in Spain and with this in mind centre back Eric Bailly (£0.89) looks attractive as does Antonio Valencia (£0.77) from right back. Whilst for Sevilla we couldn’t not mention midfielder Ever Banega (£1.85)! The Argentine hit a huge score in the first leg and the Andalusians will be hoping he can replicate that once more tonight! In attack the Spaniards will likely turn to Wissam Ben Yedder (£0.80) once more to fire in the goals!
The other fixture tonight sees Roma welcome Ukrainians Shakhtar Donetsk to Italy. It was Manchester City target Fred (£1.70) who stuck the all-important goal in the first leg giving the Ukrainians a 2-1 lead. But the Italians will be looking to overturn that one here! Dividends options come from Aleksandr Kolarov (£1.53), Turkish sensation Cengiz Ünder (£1.55) and from Shakhtar you can’t rule out Facundo Ferrerya (£0.47) from scoring and should he get the Ukrainians through to the quarter finals looks a cheap treble match day option!
All to play for this evening will United join Liverpool and City?
