Our Betting Tips

Man Utd are recent winners of the Europa League and are heavy favourites to take the three points in this game.

MAN UTD TO WIN BY A FOUR GOAL MARGIN

The Red Devils have failed to win since their opening day 4-0 victory over Chelsea, losing to Crystal Palace and drawing with both Wolves and Southampton in that time. However, they should have far too much quality at home for Astana to deal with, and that could be why the bookies are offering generous odds for a goal-filled game.

MATCH TO END WITH MORE THAN 3.5 GOALS

Youngster Daniel James has been the bright spark of United’s attack since he arrived in the summer, scoring three times already in jut four Premier League games.

DANIEL JAMES TO SCORE FIRST

The Red Devils are heavy favourites to win this game, so the best place to find some value is in a comfortable victory for the home side.

GAME TO END 4-0
