Wolves vs Man Utd: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019 @2:45 Pm
Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Wolves are sitting in seventh in the table and welcome fourth placed Manchester United to Molyneux for this midweek Premier League fixture.
Wolves were beaten in their last Premier League game at the weekend – which was a 2-0 loss away to Burnley and have won just one of their last five league games, a 2-0 win at home over Cardiff and the beginning of March. In that time period they have drawn 1-1 twice with both Bournemouth and Chelsea and lost to 1-0 to Huddersfield before that defeat to Burnley.
Man Utd beat Watford 2-1 at Old Trafford last weekend and that victory ended a run of two losses in a row – after a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League and a 2-1 loss away to their upcoming midweek opponents Wolves in the FA Cup.
Wolves did knock United out of the FA Cup a couple of weeks ago thanks to goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota and drew 1-1 at Old Trafford in their Premier League meeting earlier in the season.
Manchester United may be out of the FA Cup but sit in the Champions League qualification places, one point ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea in the table – and have a massive Champions League first leg tie with Barcelona at home coming up next week. A 1-1 draw is a decent bet for the result.
Wolves and Man Utd
Both Wolves and United will have one eye on their big upcoming cup games against Watford and Barcelona respectively and could make changes in this game with that in mind.
Total goals under 2.5 at 3/4
