Manchester United will be looking to continue their 100% record in the Champions League tonight, as Paddy Power release a new free bets offer and report plenty of money has come in for the Portugese side at a value looking price of 8/1.
Alex Ferguson will be hoping to put a troubled weekend behind him as the Red Devils look to move that step closer to the knockout stages when they host Sporting Braga at Old Trafford.
United definitely have a point to prove in the competition after crashing out in the group stages last season and with the way that they have started, history does not look like repeating itself at this early stage.
Sir Alex Ferguson will not be taking anything for granted though and knows just what a tough 90 minutes they have in front of them.
Midweek Champions League : Paddy Power Free Bet
We’ve a cracking week of Champions League football, as Paddy Power celebrate with the announcement of a new free bets offer worth £250/250 to all customers to spend on any match! That includes Man Utd v Braga! Claim here!
Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney are sure to be the two men that all eyes on for this one, should they be involved in action. They look to be working extremely well together – both scoring and providing goals, however defensively the changes could come in, with a crunch fixture against Chelsea on the weekend.
Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra look likely to be rested, but Ashley Young could make an appearance after recovering from injury.
With a huge Premier League match against Chelsea to follow this one though, Ferguson could rotate his squad and if his men are a few goals up, may give a few key players a rest.
As for Braga, they know just what a tough place Old Trafford is to come and pick up points – but if they can do it, they could even move level with their opponents come the final whistle.
The Portuguese side have the quality to cause United problems, and have actually gone undefeated in their last five games against English opponents, and with United looking a little vulnerable the 8/1 is sure to attract plenty of attention.
In a group that looks to be extremely tight in the battle for second place, Braga will not want to be on the end of a hiding here.
Old Trafford always has a superb atmosphere on European nights and this is sure to be no exception.
Kick-off for this one is 7.45PM.
