Match Betting: United vs. Real Madrid (Plus Free Bets)

In a tie that is finely balanced at 1-1, both teams will be thinking they have what it takes to progress into the last eight. United come into this game on the back of a 4-0 win at home to Norwich, whereas Real defeated Barca for the second time in a week on Saturday with Ronaldo coming on off the bench.

Its hard to predict what starting line-up Sir Alex will go for, as we have so many players who are in form right now. The chances are Shinji Kagawa would’ve probably missed out but his hat-trick at the weekend will have given Sir Alex plenty to think about.

We’re here to give you some tips ahead of the big game, as well as the chance to claim some free bets through Big Free Bet.

Match Betting

Real Madrid are slight favourites to win the game on the night, with Boylesports offering 2/1 for a United win and 13/10 for a Real Madrid away victory. 2/1 on United is quite tempting because you’d fully expect the crowd to get behind the Reds, but you can never write Jose Mourinho’s men off.

First Goalcorer

Ronaldo scored in the first leg and is a best priced 4/1 with most leading bookies to open the scoring tomorrow night, and lets be honest, you’d be foolish to bet against the ex-United legend. If you fancy him to score in 90 minutes, you can get odds of 5/6 for that.

Robin van Persie is 5/1 to open the scoring for the home side, or if you fancy something a bit riskier, you can get odds of 25/1 for Ryan Giggs to score first on his 1000th appearance for United.

If the tie were to be drawn 0-0, United would progress on away goals, so a no goalscorer bet at 16/1 could well be worth a punt.

Scorecasts

60/1 is being offered for a repeat scenario of the first leg with the game ending 1-1 and local lad Danny Welbeck finding the net first. Personally, I think the game will finish 2-2 on the night with Ronaldo scoring the opener, and this fetches in odds of 40/1 so that’d be well worth a punt.

If a ‘boring’ 1-0 United last minute winner takes your fancy, why not go for Javier Hernandez to come off the bench and score the winner? This can be found at a massive price of 70/1!
