Marcus Rashford to score anytime @ 7/4 with Coral

Jose Mourinho received a lot of criticism for his approach to the first leg of Manchester United’s Champions League last 16 tie against Sevilla a fortnight ago, but he will be more than used to that now. The Red Devils boss takes pride in making a plan to win at all costs, and he will view a 0-0 draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as a positive. He will surely expect his side to attack more at Old Trafford, because they didn’t do much of that in Spain. What is also true is that the result can be seen as a positive from Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella’s point of view, because any score draw will send them through. Though we see United progressing, 11/8 on the away side to go through with Coral are odds that cannot be ignored.

United, and particularly Marcus Rashford, come into this game brimming with confidence after beating Liverpool in a huge Premier League match on Saturday. Rashford netted a brace after struggling to break into Mourinho’s plans. He is likely to start again and, freshly confident, should be up for this game. This is an opportunity for him to continue a good run of form, and backing him to do so is certainly worth it at 7/4. With Mourinho in charge, United will believe they can win the Champions League, but they need to win this one comfortably.

Form

After beating Liverpool at the weekend, Manchester United opened up a five point gap in second place in the Premier League. Winning this tie will see United progress to the quarter finals for the first time since 2011.
