Europa League Picks: Manchester United vs Fenerbahçe

Europa League Picks: Manchester United vs Fenerbahçe
In the midst of a huge week in their season Manchester United have trips to Liverpool and Chelsea. Sandwiched in between these two massive fixtures is the inconvenience of a Thursday Europa League game. The Red Devils' pain can be the betting public's pleasure.
My Team's Next MatchManchester United

As accurately predicted on canada sports betting, Manchester United went to Anfield Road on Monday and came away with a point. And as accurately predicted it was accomplished because Mourinho did what only Mourinho can – kill the game in spite of the fact that his fans will hate it.

Now before Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, United has the obligation of hosting Turkish side Fenerbahce on Thursday.

And speaking of things United Fans hate, the Europa League is one of them. Earlier this season a group of United fans had a go at the Europa League twitter account calling their competition a waste of time and stating their embarrassment for even being in the competition.

Jose Mourinho himself has publically stated that Manchester United DO NOT WANT TO PLAY IN THIS COMPETITION. So how do we use all this information to our advantage?

Manchester United vs Fenerbahçe Betting Prediction

After surviving a huge stress test at Anfield on Monday expect a let down when the Turkish side comes to Old Trafford.

The beauty of this bet is that for only a small amount of juice you’re getting a ton of value and with the added safety of having a goal in your favor.

Mourinho will start a B team against a Fenerbahce side who is taking this competition seriously. The Turkish fans will invade Old Trafford with their banners and flares and don’t be surprised if there are some brawls on the streets of Manchester. 

Fenerbahce are 1st in the group. So far in this competition, United have played a pair of lackluster 1-0 games (one win, one loss). Frankly, they don’t have the energy or the passion to put up with these Thursday games much longer; that goes for the team on the pitch and the fans in the stands.

Look Ahead And Let Down Games

This is a classic case of both a Look Ahead and Let Down game for the Red Devils. After the huge emotions that are spent in the United/ Liverpool rivalry to have to rev up the engines again after a couple of days is difficult.

With another huge game coming up on the weekend it is only rational to think that some players and coaches will be looking toward having a fully fit squad for Chelsea on Sunday.

I have said it before, Professional athletes are men, not machines and emotional factors play a role in performance.
