class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>After delivering a big win in the first leg, our tipster is backing the Red Devils to qualify for the Europa League final in style
Manchester United will be hoping for a trouble-free evening when they travel to Roma for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday.
An extraordinary blitz in the second period at Old Trafford last week saw the Red Devils turn a 2-1 half-time deficit into a stunning 6-2 victory, effectively ending the tie.
Roma vs Manchester United Latest Odds
After that incredible result last week, bet365 make Manchester United 17/20 (1.85) favourites to follow up with another win at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma came back from a 3-0 first-leg defeat to beat Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final in 2018 but are 11/4 (3.75) outsiders to even win this match, and 40/1 (41.0) to qualify for the final.
A draw would, of course, be enough for United and that is priced at 3/1 (4.0) with the online bookmaker.
Roma vs Manchester United Team News
Jordan Veretout, Leonardo Spinazzola and Pau Lopez all suffered injuries in the first leg and are set to miss out here, whilst Riccardo Calafiori and Stephan El Shaarawy are both doubts and Pedro remains injured.
Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are unlikely to play again this season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer otherwise having a complete squad to choose from.
Roma vs Manchester United Preview
Whilst the scoreline of the first leg was certainly a surprise, the result was not as it made it six wins in seven games in all competitions for United.
They did not extend that run at the weekend after fan protests caused their Premier League game against Liverpool to be postponed, but that unexpected rest will surely only make the Red Devils more refreshed for this trip against a struggling Roma.
Indeed, the Serie A side fell to a 2-0 defeat at Sampdoria on Sunday to mark a third defeat in a row in all competitions, as well as a fourth in five, as the capital club continue their limp towards to the end of the season.
Roma vs Manchester United Tips and Predictions
Manchester United do not need victory to book their place in the Europa League final but the odds of 17/20 (1.85) on an away win look far too good to pass up as Solskjaer’s men look to continue their strong form.
