Manchester United get a break from their Premier League troubles with a daunting Champions League fixture that their manager just can’t afford to lose.
Not only is a win needed for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but a big performance is as well. Here’s a close look at the Manchester United v Atalanta betting options at LV BET.
MANCHESTER UNITED VS ATALANTA: BETTING
The accusations were flying thick and fast following Manchester United’s horror show at the King Power Stadium. Dreams of a Premier League title already look wishful at best after the Red Devils were torn apart in their second loss of the season (4-2) at the hands of Brendan Rodgers and his Foxes.
For some time, the Reds have been drifting aimlessly – and there seems to be a lot of doubt that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the man to turn the ship around. His problems are sure to pile up unless he quietens his critics with a performance against Atalanta.
So far are they off the pace already, that LV BET have them at an incredible 33/1 (34.00) to win the Premier League title.
For a club just two points off the leaders a few days ago, some say surely Solskjaer cannot survive many more bad nights at Old Trafford – and with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City to come in the league, anything except a win on Wednesday leaves an already exposed head coach swimming against a very strong tide.
Are you backing them to do it? A convincing 2-0 United win is on offer at 10/3 (4.33).
Are the fans owed a powerful display – you can back a 4-0 victory at 28/1 (29.00).
If you’re relying on Ronaldo, he is at 59/20 (3.95) to open the scoring at Old Trafford in midweek.
You can get the five-time winner at the same odds to get the game’s final goal, too.
How about 39/10 (4.90) on the game being level at half-time and United to win the match?
Will they both fire blanks? No goals during the game is an attractive 20/1 (21.00).
United fans, look away now. Atalanta certainly know what they are doing away from home.
On Sunday, 24 hours after United were schooled by Leicester City, Atalanta ran out as 4-1 winners over Empoli.
That came after an impressive 2-2 draw at Inter Milan, days after they did the double over Serie A’s Salernitana.
The Italians sit sixth but top Group F with four points from two games. A win this Wednesday, and they’ll have one foot in the next round.
If you are backing Atalanta to carry on their great form, you’re in the right place.
A 1-0 away win is offered at 16/1 (17.00).
You can even get 25/1 (26.00) on them to leave Manchester with all three points.
Colombian forward Duvan Zapata is a man in form, and at 7/4 (2.75) to score at any time; he could be one to keep your eye on.
Veteran Slovenian forward Josip Ilicic is a man their fans love – he’s a 9/1 (10.00) bet to close the scoring at Old Trafford.
The two sides do struggle to keep clean sheets, so a 1/2 (1.50) bet for both to score is certainly worth considering.
