Sheriff v Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions

Despite beginning their Europa League campaign with defeat to Real Sociedad, Manchester United are big favourites to beat Sheriff Tiraspol on matchday two.

Erik ten Hag has some big decisions to make after their abysmal showing at home to Sociedad. 

Manchester United had the weekend off, which could prompt the former Ajax manager to name something close to a full strength XI for this match.

Sheriff began their Europa League campaign with a 3-0 win over Omonia Nicosia. This is their first match against Premier League opposition since they lost twice to Tottenham in the group stage of the 2013-14 Europa League.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

17/11 (SportNation)

There have been under 2.5 total goals in six of Sheriff’s nine matches in continental competition so far this season. Even their domestic matches have generally been low scoring, with a total of six goals across their last three.

Manchester United have also seen under 2.5 total goals in three of their last four matches. If Ten Hag perseveres with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the line, the attack is likely to struggle here. 

United’s superior quality contributes to these long odds on the under, with bookies expending a resounding away win, but there’s still value here.

First Corner: Manchester United

4/9 (William Hill)

Manchester United are bound to dominate possession on Thursday night, and Sheriff will be happy for them to do so considering their difficulties breaking down defences.

The Red Devils could be forced into speculative shots and crosses from their full backs – both of those scenarios are likely to lead to corners. 

Sheriff had just four corners despite their three-goal victory over Omonia Nicosia. This price is unsurprisingly short, but it’s still a wager worth considering.

Anytime Goalscorer: Jadon Sancho

41/20 (Unibet)

Rested for the match with Sociedad, Jadon Sancho is one player Ten Hag could hand a start to on Thursday night as United search for their first points in the competition. The England international has scored in two of his last four starts.

Sancho is no stranger to continental competition, and looks to have regained his goalscoring touch after a disappointing first campaign with the Red Devils. 

He’s the best bet in the anytime goalscorer market.
