Manchester United v FC Midtjylland Preview, Europa League, Last 32, Thursday 25th February 2016

Manchester United suffered a bit of a shock defeat in the 1st leg match over in the MCH Arena when losing 2-1, but they have left themselves a chance of progressing through having scored that important away goal and if they manage to keep a clean sheet and win the match on Thursday night in front of a packed out Old Trafford Stadium, then they will book their place in the last 16.

FC Midtjylland however will obviously be very confident of dumping Manchester United out of the tournament on Thursday night as they were certainly the better side in the 1st leg match and having a good record in the City of Manchester having beaten Manchester City back in the 1st leg of the 2008/09 UEFA Cup second qualifying round tie, they will also very much fancy their chances of causing what would be a huge upset in this one.

Manchester United v FC Midtjylland Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

It does surprise me to see Manchester United as the clear odds on favourites to win this game on Thursday night as having already been beaten 2-1 over in Denmark last week and missing some of their key players due to injury, they will certainly be well up against it to justify their current best price of 1/4 from Betfred.

FC Midtjylland will be brimming with confidence of progressing through to the last 16 of the tournament as with a healthy 2-1 lead from the first leg, they only need to score one goal in this game for me to pretty much achieve that and as such I doubt very much that we will see the visitors sitting too much on the back foot trying to defend their first leg lead.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this match is going to be for FC Midtjylland to Qualify as I do expect them to score at least once during this game on Thursday night and that should be enough to send them through to the next round.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard to open up the goal scoring for his side as with him having got his name on the score sheet on Monday night in the 3-0 win away against Shrewsbury, he should be in confident mood during this game.
