Manchester United 10/11 to beat Roma in Thursday’s Europa League second-leg

Competition: Europa League

Market: Manchester United win

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Simply looking to finish off the job on Thursday night, Manchester United will make the trip to The Stadio Olimpico when they face off against Roma this weeek.

Starting with the hosts, while Roma might have managed to take a shock lead away at Old Trafford last week, it quickly became a night to forget for the Italian outfit. Eventually getting hit with a thumping 6-2 defeat in Manchester and with their Europa League adventure all but gone up in smoke, it was announced on Tuesday that Jose Mourinho will replace current boss Paulo Fonseca at the end of the season. Continuing on what has been arguably their worst run of the campaign, I Giallorossi were last seen over the weekend when putting in another worrying display. Hit with a deserved 2-0 loss away at Sampdoria and only showing a string of issues at the back, Roma have lost each of their last three matchups across all formats and find themselves in the midst of a six-match winless run.

As for the visitors, after seeing Sunday’s meeting against rivals Liverpool postponed after the scenes at Old Trafford, Manchester United will be desperate to turn their attention back to on-field duties this week. With many tipping The Reds as a landslide pick to lift this year’s Europa League crown, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men should still be boosted by that stunning romp on home soil seven days ago. With both Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes grabbing themselves a brace, the Premier League giants stormed their way to that 6-2 win and they simply have their sights set on finishing off the job in midweek. With it all but confirmed that they have booked a Champions League return for next season, United have really bounced back from their FA Cup defeat against Leicester back on March 21st.
