Man United blew the Premier League title race wide open when they beat Chelsea at Old Trafford at the weekend, but prior to that they played out an unconvincing draw in Belgium against Anderlecht, who travel to Manchester for the second leg of this Europa League tie on Thursday. These two teams are in fine form: both are unbeaten in seven, but United are in the more parlous state vis-à-vis Champions League football next year, as they sit fifth in the Premier League while Anderlecht are top of the Belgian First Division.
Man United’s home record in European football is excellent. They’re unbeaten at Old Trafford in all European competitions since the 2012/13 season, and their last loss there was against Real Madrid in the last 16. They’re unbeaten at home in 26 matches across all competition, with 17 of those games producing wins, but with each of their last five at home going under 2.5 goals we’re unlikely to see a thrashing. This is especially true since Anderlecht have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven games – although four of United’s last five at home in Europe have been wins to nil, they’ll struggle to put many past the Belgians’ disciplined defence.
We think United should be too good for Anderlecht, but we can’t guarantee that they’ll produce a win given that they’ve drawn three of their last five at home. We do think, though, that it’s likely that the game will go Under 2.5 Goals.
