Champions League betting – Man United v Marseille
Man United v Marseille betting preview, odds and tips
Manchester United will be looking to build on the 0-0 draw achieved in France by going into the quarter finals of the competition for the 5th successive season. But Marseille are looking for a major upset and to reach the last 8 for the first time since the 1992/1993 season. Manchester United came through group C with a fair amount of ease to reach this stage. As Marseille came through in second from group F after winning 4 of their 6 group matches.
Manchester United defeated Arsenal 2-0 at home on Saturday evening to reach the Semi Final of the FA Cup and continue challenging for 3 trophies. The Red Devils have never lost at home to French first division opposition or at home at all this season and are therefore firm favourites and best priced at 1.5 with Bet365 to win on the night. Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez have struck up a good partnership recently and should continue upfront together on Tuesday after contributing 22 goals between them so far this season. Hernandez is therefore a good bet at 6.0 with Skybet to open the scoring on the night. Man United have the best defensive record in the competition this season after only conceding 1 goal so far in their 7 matches and so a 2-0 home victory is definitely worth a look at 6.75 with Unibet.
Current Ligue 1 holders Olympic Marseille currently sit 4th in the league this season but only a point behind top of the table Lille. Although L’OM are most definitely under dogs and priced as much as 8.0 with Paddy power to win on the night they have a decent away record this season. Marseille have lost only 3 of their 14 away games in the league and only once away at Chelsea in the Champions League. L’OM will also be taking some confidence to Old Trafford after winning 5 of their last 6 league games. Andre-Pierre Gignac is fit for the trip to Manchester after missing the first leg and the striker is a good price at 4.2 with Paddy Power so score at any time, despite a difficult season so far.
Javier Hernandez first goal scorer – 6.0 Skybet
2-0 Man United correct score – 6.75 Unibet
Andre-Pierre Gignac anytime scorer – 4.2 Paddy power
Both teams to score first half – 6.5 Skybet
