Betting. Fenerbahce vs Manchester United [03.11.16] : the Canaries seek for revenge

Europa League

Group A

Bet: Total Goals under 2,5

On Thursday, November 3, Fenerbahce will seek for revenge after the reverse fixture in Manchester. The Canaries were utterly defeated and humiliated (1-4), but they will stand tight and will definitely put up resistance to the Red Devils in face of their own fans.  

Contrary to all sports betting predictions Fenerbahce had a very slow start. After the first few months under the direction of Dick Advocaat the Yellow Canaries didn’t show a lot of progress, but they did improve the situation in the Turkish Superliga due to the last two games. Fener took 6 points out of 6 and managed to keep a clean sheet in both matches. So now they sit on the 5th place with 8 points deficit from the leader. As for the European tournament, betting experts think the Canaries haven’t lost chances to move to the knockout stage. However, after the first 3 games they have 4 points and drop behind Feyenoord and MU.

In spite of spending a lot of money and inviting Jose Mourinho this summer Manchester United face serious difficulties at the start of the season. The new players and their manager can’t prove their value as they have already lost points in 6 matches out of 10 in the Premier League. Considered by the betting companies to be one of the main contenders for the title the Red Devils sit now on the 8th place and have 8 points less than the leaders. So it’s quite natural that the team is under a lot of pressure. The betting experts thought a morale boosting win over Man City (1-0) in Football League Cup would help MU to return to life, but right after that victory they unexpectedly drew blank with Burnley.

While choosing a bet you should remember that Mourinho gives priority to the Premier League games, especially in such a difficult situation. He will probably give some rest to his key players and won’t take his full strength squad to Istanbul. The Mancunians will also keep in mind a must-win game with Swansea at the weekend. Besides, Mourinho has major selection concerns as Bailly, Valencia and Jones are all injured. What’s more, Smalling and Martial could also be sidelined due to health issues. According to betting companies Fernandao and Tufan will miss out for Fenerbahce.

The bookmakers give advantage to the away team: Fenerbahce – 3,20, Draw – 3,40, Manchester United – 2,25. However, giving the fact that Mourinho will rotate the squad and that the Red Devils have been poor away from home in European tournament, it will take a lot of efforts from them to get a win in Istanbul. Fener is unbeaten in 7 European home games. What’s more, they managed to keep clean sheet in five of them and MU failed to score in the last two matches. So it is recommended to bet on “Double Chance: Fenerbahce or Draw” (1,65). Besides, there is a good bet “Total Goals under 2,5” (1,77).
