Manchester United -1.5 Asian Handicap

The match

Matchday three of the Europa League group stage sees Manchester United traveling to Cyprus to take Cypriot Cup champions Omonia Nicosia at the Tsirion Athlítiko Kentro Stadium. The visitors will be desperate to get back to winning ways after a humiliating result on the weekend saw them lose 6-3 to rivals Manchester City which included trailing 4-0 at half time. The Red Devils find themselves sitting second in Group E after recovering from their 1-0 home loss to Real Sociedad with a 2-0 away win over Sheriff Tiraspol. Standing in their way today is an Omonia side still searching for their first points of the group stage after dropping their first two matches 3-0 at home to Sheriff and 2-1 away to Real Sociedad. The hosts will be hoping that their recent uptick in form can carry over into this one as the Shamrock has won their last two consecutive league matches by a combined score of 6-0. 

The heavy loss against Manchester City should drive United to a higher than usual intensity for their trip to Cypriot capital. All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo as the legendary Portuguese will be looking for a dominant performance to force manager Erik ten Hag to rethink his place in the first team. The United #7 was visibly distraught on the bench during the defeat to their rivals on the weekend and we expect a big bounce back performance from Ronaldo and the Manchester United team as a whole. Omonia will likely find themselves simply outclassed here as the 21-time league champions have struggled at this level in their first two match days. Omonia has not only conceded five goals while scoring only once but has given up a total of six clear cut scoring chances while creating only one for themselves.

Key Statistics

  • Manchester United’s attack has been consistent this season and the Red Devils have scored in six of the last seven matches.
  • Before their most recent two league victories, Omonia had previously conceded in five consecutive matches, giving up a total of 10 goals.
  • Manchester United has managed to strike first in five of their last seven matches and has scored two or more goals in three of their last four.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to back Manchester United on the -1.5 Asian Handicap as our bet for this match. This means that the visitors will have to win by a margin of at least two goals for our bet to be a winner. This is unfortunate timing for Omonia as they will likely have to deal with a fired up Manchester United side coming off a terrible defeat. While ten Hag will rotate his team as usual, there is more than enough quality in the Red Devils team to still record a comfortable victory in this one.
