Manchester United 4/1 to Win Europa League


16 February 2012 by Barrie | Football Betting Expert


Manchester United have been made 4/1 second favourites to win this season’s Europa League.

Having been eliminated at the group stages of the Champions League, Sir Alex Ferguson has a chance to get his hands on a trophy neither he nor Manchester United have previously lifted.

Before Manchester United’s 2-0 win in Ajax this evening, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side had only previously competed in 4 then-UEFA Cup ties, drawing them all and being eliminated on the away goals’ rule.

Prior to Ashley Young’s strike on the hour that gave the visitors the lead, Manchester United’s last goalscorer in this competition was Peter Schmeichel way back in 1995 against Russian side Rotor Volgograd.

Local neighbours Manchester City are the bookmakers 7/2 favourites whilst Spanish side Valencia are third at 10/1 following their 1-0 victory over Stoke City this evening.
