Real Betis v Man Utd: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview

Real Betis vs Man Utd- Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview

Manchester United travel to Real Betis on Thursday with a foot in the Europa League quarter-finals after securing a 4-1 first-leg win at Old Trafford last week (5.45pm kick-off, UK time). 

Erik ten Hag had the unenviable task of trying to motivate his squad last Thursday after Man Utd’s humiliating 7-0 capitulation at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool the game prior, but his charges responded to his message, with the club running out comprehensive 4-1 winners against Real Betis in their Europa League first leg.

Marcus Rashford broke the deadlock only five minutes into the contest to settle any early nerves and quickly put to bed the residue from that Liverpool drubbing. Coached by former Man City boss and Premier League winner Manuel Pellegrini, Betis naturally responded before the break through Ayoze Perez, but it was one-way traffic in the second half.

The Red Devils came out after half-time with the bit between their teeth and bagged thrice to secure a 4-1 first-leg victory, with goals coming from Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst. Ten Hag will know his side cannot afford to let complacency creep in, so he will not be resting on his laurels in Andalusia.

Real Betis v Man Utd match stats

Marcus Rashford has scored a quite extraordinary 24 goals in major European competitions for Man Utd across his career. He could become only the sixth player to score 25 such goals for the club should be bag on Thursday and, at the age of 25 years and 136 days on the day of the game, he could also become the youngest player to reach 25 major European goals for The Red Devils.

You certainly wouldn’t put it past the England international producing the goods in southern Spain as he has been firing in the Europa League this season. Not only is the 25-year-old the current leading scorer in the competition for 2022/23, with five goals — level with Union Saint-Gilloise’s Victor Boniface — but he has also registered the most shots on target (16) and also provided an assist, meaning he has been directly involved in more goals than any other player.
