UEFA Europa League: Manchester United vs. AS Roma Odds – 3:00 p.m. EST

  • Manchester United -190

  • Spread: Man U -1.0 (-120)
  • O/U: 2.5 (-130, +110)

Manchester United have once again decimated their way through Europa League competition on the way to the semi-final.

After reaching this stage of the tournament last year, Man U blasted their way through the likes of AC Milan, Real Sociedad, and Granada on their way to this year’s Europa League semi final.

This will mark five straight semi-finals in tournament competition for the Red Devils, with the club failing to make the finals in each outing.

While that could be a reason to back Roma in this leg, Man U simply has so much talent that they deserve the lofty price attached to their name.

Man U have also won 11 of their last 12 matches in European competition against Italian teams.

Those looking to back Roma will have to note that the club has not earned a win on English soil in Euro competition since 2001. That span of over 20 years has seen the team lose eight matches, drawing four.

Likewise, Roma has looked weary in their last four matches where they have not earned a victory. Two losses and two draws across domestic competition does not bode well for their form heading to Old Trafford.

Players To Watch

When it comes to keeping tabs on a certain player in this match, the discussion starts and nearly ends with Bruno Fernandes for Manchester United.

Fernandes has scored the most Europa League goals than any other player since his debut in the competition in 2018 with 17 goals and nine assists.

Additionally, five of his last seven contributions led to opening goals for Man U.

For Roma, the man to watch is former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko certainly has familiarity with Old Trafford, as he has scored five goals in last four games against Man U, included back to back braces.
