Watching Man United this season has been a bit like sending your drunk mate to the bar to get some snacks.
You might get a nice pack of steak McCoys, but they’re just as likely to come back with a pack of vegetable crisps!
And when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men face RB Leipzig in one of the games of the week, which Man United turns up is anyone’s guess.
|Fixture||Manchester United v RB Leipzig|
|Date||Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 20:00|
|Where||Old Trafford, Manchester|
|How to Watch||Live on BT Sport|
Our Top Odds Pick – Draw – 5/2 at bet365
Leipzig were one of Europe’s surprise packages last season, advancing to the last four of the Champions League, and despite selling their star player Timo Werner to Chelsea, they have picked up right where they left off this campaign.
The Germans are unbeaten in all competitions and top the Bundesliga, having won five out of six games and conceded just two goals.
They are certainly playing well enough to avoid defeat against a United side languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League, but a hugely impressive win at PSG last time out leads us to think that the men from Old Trafford are also capable of worrying their visitors.
Our Extra Pick – Edinson Cavani to Score – 9/5 at Betfair
New Man U signing Edinson Cavani may be nicknamed “El Matador”, but his goalscoring stats are no bull.
Since he made his debut for Palermo in 2007, only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have scored more than him in Europe’s top five leagues, and he has netted 35 Champions League goals at a rate of one every other game.
Cavani will have benefitted immensely from a half hour cameo against Chelsea last weekend, including almost scoring with his first touch, and he is set to feature more prominently in a game he will relish.
Our Long Shot – 2-2 Correct Score – 11/1 at Unibet
After scoring six goals in their previous two games, Man U’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea took many pundits by surprise.
However, away from the stresses of the Premier League and with a group win already in the bag, we reckon the Red Devils will play with much more freedom against Leipzig.
And with the visitors having netted at least twice in all but one of their matches this season, we’re going for goals at Old Trafford.
