Man Utd vs Anderlecht – Europa League
Thursday 20th April 20:05, Old Trafford
Match Preview and Betting Tips
After a 1-1 draw in Belgium, United have the away goals advantage ahead of Thursday nights 2nd leg at Old Trafford. United are enjoying another unbeaten run and head into this match on the back of a fantastic 2-0 win over Champions elect Chelsea.
Anderlecht are also in the midst of an unbeaten run, in fact a better one than United as the Belgians have produced more wins of late and sit top of the Pro League by 7 points.
Anyone would be a fool to presume that this tie was done and dusted, as it would only take one goal from Anderlecht to cancel out United’s goal in Belgium, and a second would shift the balance of power in favour of the visitors.
United have drawn a few games at home which really should have been wins and they can’t really afford to produce another tomorrow as it could see their chances of Champions League qualification go right down the drain.
I’ve put my money on the hosts winning tomorrow and keeping a clean sheet, with the final score to read 2-0 to United. Mkhitaryan has scored 4 goals in this competition and been playing much better in the league of late, so I have backed the Armenian to score another goal in this game.

Man Utd vs Anderlecht Stats
Manchester United and Anderlecht meet for the 8th time in their history on Thursday and while the Belgians know they can and have beaten their English opponent before, they are yet to do so at Old Trafford.
United went in 1-0 up at the break in the 1st leg thanks to a goal from in form midfielder Mkhitaryan, and what an important strike it could turn out to be from the Armenian.
Dendoncker scored the equalising goal to ruin the visitors clean sheet and keep Anderlecht well and truly in this tie, but there is still a lot of work to be done if the Belgian side are to qualify for the next round.
