Manchester United 19/10 to beat Valencia in Wednesday’s Champions League clash

Competition: Champions League

Market: Manchester United win

Odds: 19/10 @ Bet 365

Already booking their spot in the knockout stage, Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side will travel to a struggling Estadio de Mestalla on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, although Valencia have already confirmed that they will be dropping down into the Europa League after booking a third-place finish in Group H a fortnight ago, Marcelino García Toral will know his side must perform on Wednesday. With a 1-0 win over little known Ebro the Bats’ only victory in their last four outings, they also hold just a four-point buffer over the relegation zone in La Liga. Now managing to pick up just one win in their last eight Champions League matches, a run that stems back to 2015, Valencia have failed to score in six of their past eight games in Europe.

As for Jose Mourinho’s side, after deeming Paul Pogba only good enough for the bench on Saturday, Manchester United put in arguably their best performance in recent memory. Putting four past Fulham in a very impressive 4-1 win at Old Trafford, United are now enjoying a five-match unbeaten run and it appears Romelu Lukaku may have refound hsi confidence. The Belgian international now has two in his last two after enduring a poor run of form. Another win on Wednesday would Mourinho’s side win all three of their away games in the group stages for the first time since 2010-11.
