Live in-play betting – 

Manchester United are very close to reaching the Europa League final even though they have a slim lead from the first leg.

The Red Devils have obviously prioritized the Europa league over the Premier League after it became clear to them that it would be difficult for them to qualify for the Champions League through the top four.

They have won 8 of their last eleven games in the competition losing just once in the group stage.

They are currently on a run of 2 straight wins in the competition.

They have won all their 6 home games in the competition so far, conceding just 2 goals in those games total.

Celta Vigo will be very disappointed at the result of the first leg match.

They have been resting their top players for their last few La Liga with hopes that they can win the Europa League.

Their 1-0 loss to Manchester United was their first loss in their last 6 Europa league matches after winning 4 in a row.

It is also worth noting that they fought back after losing the first leg of their round of their round of 32 clash 1-0 to Shakhtar Donestk.

They won the away game 0-2 to qualify for the round of 16.

Betting odds suggest Manchester United will be making their way to the final – they are currently trading at odds of 1.55 to win this game while Celta are 7.0 to win at Old Trafford.

Although United have been good defensively at home, they have struggled to score so there is a chance we will see an upset come Thursday evening.
