Braga v Man Utd Odds : Manchester United too big price to ignore for Champions League victory

After last nights action, our attention turns to tonight’s fixtures, as Bet365 release a new in play free bets offer, as well as the latest odds on Braga v Man Utd, Celtic v Barcelona, Chelsea v Shakhtar and Bayern Munich v Lille.

Manchester United will be aiming to continue their impressive form when they travel to Braga in the Champions League tonight, and with Alex Ferguson knowing that only a point from their remaining three games will see the Red Devils qualify for the knockout stages, the odds of 6/5 for the away win should attract plenty of attention.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men may not have been at their best in terms of performances – a lot of the wins have been hard fought – but the results have been there and more the same is needed this week.

Looking at Group H going into this week’s fixtures, it is United that are leading the way at the moment with three wins out of three so far. This includes the 3-2 victory over Braga a couple of weeks ago, as Javier Hernandez pulled United back from the brink of defeat.

They did have to come back from 2-0 down against Wednesday’s opponents though and this will ensure they are not complacent going into this one, as like Chelsea, United do look a little brittle at the back, and the Portuguese outfit are more than capable of causing the Premier League side problems.

However, with Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney linking up more effectively each game, the away side will feel they have enough to take the points. After Saturday’s heroics against Arsenal, Van Persie looks the main threat for United going forward and his price of 4/1 to find the net first is sure to attract plenty of money.

Chris Smalling is set to start his first game of the season as he makes a welcome return from a broken metatarsal, while Shinji Kagawa, Nemanjaj Vicic, Danny Welbeck and Phil Jones lead a long list of United injury absentees, as Paul Scholes and Darren Fletcher also sit this trip out.

Looking at things from Braga’s perspective, they need something from this game. At the moment they are 3rd in Group H and defeat here would do a great deal of harm to their qualifying chance.

They need to use the pain from losing a 2-0 lead last time out in a positive way. Braga do have the players to get goals, they just need to try and stop United’s attacking force.

Since the 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford, Jose Pereiro’s men have recorded back to back victories, scoring five goals in the process. They are certainly in good shape – with Eder as their biggest threat – and ready to take on the might of Manchester United. Alan will once again provide the threat down the left wing while Barbosa should partner Eder up front as the Portuguese side look for goals.

We have reached the business end of the group stages and this should be a cracking match. Expect goals in this one as both teams go for the win, but with Alex Ferguson celebrating 26 years in charge at Old Trafford, don’t be suprised to see an away win here – at inviting odds.
