Manchester United 17/20 to beat Benfica in Wednesday’s Champions League battle
Competition: Champions League
Market: Manchester United to beat Benfica
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet365
The Champions League has returned this week with a number of incredibly interesting games adorning the third match-week of the competition. With every side desperate to pick up points for their own causes, Wednesday’s games are likely to prove pivotal for the teams that do and do not reach the next round. Two teams that are locking horns on this matchday are Benfica and Manchester United.
The hosts are in awful form in the Champions League thus far having tasted defeat twice in their opening two games. Benfica have picked the ball out of the back of their net seven times already and they have scored just once. United are already six points clear of them, and another loss could make the gap between themselves and first and second almost insurmountable.
United, on the other hand, are bossing their group and they are very well placed to progress into the knockout stages of the competition. Jose Mourinho’s men have won two games and have a three-point cushion at the top of the table as they are clearly enjoying their European campaign this season. With seven goals scored and just one conceded they seem to be very well balanced, and a win in Portugal on Wednesday would see them all but secure their place in the next round. With this in mind, Bet365 have given Manchester United odds of 17/20 to beat Benfica on Wednesday.
