Man Utd aiming for a repeat of 1999 treble success

| 23.02.2011

Manchester United are currently flying high in numerous competitions and it is 22/1 in the football betting odds that they replicate the treble that they won in 1999.

After 26 games of the Premier League season, Manchester United are four points clear of nearest challengers Arsenal, with the better goal difference.

This has led to Manchester United being priced at 4/9 in the Premier League betting to win the title and this is the silverware they are perhaps most likely to gain this season.

Meanwhile, they are still alive in the FA Cup despite scraping past non-league Crawley in the fifth round.

Manchester United’s betting odds to win the FA Cup are 9/4 and they have the perfect chance to eliminate biggest threats Arsenal in the quarter finals, as the Gunners travel to Old Trafford in the last eight.

Furthermore, it is 11/4 that Manchester United complete the domestic double of the Premier League and FA Cup.

Undoubtedly the biggest challenge facing the Red Devils this season is winning the Champions League, particularly with European giants including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan still in the competition.

Manchester United face Marseille in the first knockout round and are 2/9 to qualify for the quarter finals of the competition.

It is 6/1 in the Champions League betting that Manchester United win the tournament.

Ladbrokes are also offering odds on the season panning out in an identical manner to when Manchester United last completed the treble.

In 1999, Peter Schmeichel left the club after the Champions League final and it is 33/1 that Manchester United win the treble and manager Sir Alex Ferguson is not in charge for the opening game of the next campaign.

It is 200/1 that the treble is sealed again with a victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

A £25 stake on Arsenal winning the Champions League would return £300. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
