PSV Eindhoven v Manchester United Tips – Opening group win for Red Devils
Manchester United can make a triumphant return to the Champions League proper this evening
September 15th, 2015
Following a dismal 2013/14 campaign, the Red Devils were forced to watch last season’s Champions League on television, however after finishing in the top four last season they reached the qualifying stages this time around and now make an appearance in the group stages following an emphatic 7-1 aggregate thrashing of Club Brugge.
Can United make it another success this evening? There is no reason to believe that they can’t. PSV may be on excellent form in their domestic campaign but United will have enough about them to clinch full points, even in the absence of star striker Wayne Rooney who will likely sit out this match following an unspecified injury.
With Rooney expected to make no appearance tonight, all eyes will be on Memphis Depay, the former PSV Eindhoven player performing well in this competition with a brace in the aggregate win over Brugge. Depay is available at a price of 12/5 with Bet365 to score at any point of this match and we fancy his chances of netting against his former club.
We may fancy the visitors to return home with the spoils, but they won’t have things all their own way. PSV have found the back of the net 17 times in their last six competitive matches and they can find a way through the United rearguard, therefore we’ll be backing a Red Devils win and both teams to score tonight.
BETTING TIPS – Manchester United win, both teams to score – William Hill 7/2
