Manchester United 3/10 to beat Benfica in Tuesday’s Champions League encounter
Competition: Champions League
Market: Manchester United to beat Benfica
Odds: 3/10 @ Bet365
The Champions League is moving into the business stage of the competition, with three points now vital to every team’s aspirations. With just three games left in the group stage, a win today could all but secure a place in the next round, while it could also facilitate a late charge from a side currently outside of the qualification spots. One side that can secure their place in the next round is Manchester United, and they take on Benfica on Tuesday.
So far, Manchester United have been perfect in Europe. Three wins from three games, eight goals scored and just one conceded is a superb record and they look like a very solid prospect in the Champions League this season. The English club can secure their place in the next round if they win and CSKA Moscow fail to win, which means there is extra incentive to gain a victory here. Following their 1-0 win over Tottenham at the weekend, Jose Mourinho’s men will be confident of wrapping up their campaign and looking forward to the next round of the competition.
For Benfica, this has been a campaign to forget. Three games, no wins and three defeats has culminated in a hugely disappointing European venture that is threatening to end with the Portuguese club at the bottom of their group. A win over Manchester United would give them the confidence to turn their awful form around, but the fact they have scored just once and conceded eight goals alludes to the fact that only a defeat lies in store at Old Trafford, and Bet365 have given the hosts odds of 3/10 to beat Benfica.
