Man United odds-on for Europa League glory after today’s draw

| 21.04.2017

The draw for this season’s Europa League Semi-Finals has been concluded, and it’s Manchester United who are odds-on to lift the trophy in Stockholm next month.

Jose Mourinho’s men are looking to win this competition for the first time in their history, following last night’s 2-1 extra-time victory over Anderlecht, with young striker Marcus Rashford securing their progression to the last four.

That win has secured Man United a Semi-Final berth against La Liga side Celta Vigo, and it’s now just 4/5 for the North-West giants to lift the trophy this season.

For their part, Celta edged past Belgian side Genk (4-3 on aggregate), but our traders think it’s unlikely they’ll get much further, with Eduardo Berizzo’s men 7/1 rank outsiders to get their name carved on the cup.

In the other semi, Lyon’s penalty shootout triumph over Besiktas has landed Les Gones a tie against Ajax, who won this competition (then the UEFA Cup) back in 1992.

However, it’s the French side who are the more fancied for success this time out, with OL 12/5 to win the Europa League, while Ajax are some way behind at 9/2.

First leg games will be played on 4 May, with the second legs to take place on 11 May.
