Anderlecht vs Man Utd – Europa League
Thursday 13th April 20:05, Stade Constant Vanden Stock
Match Preview and Betting Tips
United face a tricky task in the form of Anderlecht away tomorrow night, but if Mourinho’s men are to go on and win this competition then there will be much sterner tests to come.
The Belgian hosts sit top of the Pro League and eased passed APOEL in the last round of the Europa League, winning both the home and away legs via the same 1-0 scoreline.
United struggled a little against Rostov in Russia where they drew 1-1, but a single Mata strike in the 70th minute of the return leg at Old Trafford sent the English giants through to the next round.
This game feels like it could go a similar way to the first leg in Russia, and I think United would take a score draw and be confident they would beat Anderlecht in the home leg.
I’ve gone with a draw and both teams to score, with that man Ibrahimovic to score first. I expect the game to be very tight and tense with little in the way of goalmouth action as both sides try not to give too much away.
My third and final bet goes on both teams to have two or more corners in each half, its not a great deal of corner to have in a game and this bet can often be found on SkyBet and offers decent odds.

Anderlecht vs Man Utd Stats
These two sides have met twice before, but never in the Europa League, and that Champions League tie of 2000 seems a very long time ago.
After winning 5-1 at home United went into the reverse fixture expecting another 3 points, but Anderlecht, and particularly striker Tomasz Radzinski had other plans.
The hosts ran out 2-1 winners in Belgium thanks to goals from former Everton front man Radzinski, who on the day linked up superbly with giant strike partner Jan Koller.
Obviously that result was a long time ago now, but I don’t think too many would be surprised to see a similar result in Belgium tomorrow. This tie could end up being settled on away goals and I fancy United to score at least once tomorrow which would stand them in good stead for a place in the next round.
