Over 2.5 Goals

Man Utd put four goals past Real Betis at Old Trafford last week, though they probably should have buried double that amount on a night where they created chance after chance. Betis will need to chase the game from the off in the second leg and there should be plenty of room for the Red Devils to counter into in Seville. An open game should be in the works then, and our first Real Betis vs Man Utd prediction forecasts over 2.5 goals to rattle the net again.

Both Teams to Score

Real Betis managed to open the scoring first in Manchester last week and they might have lodged another consolation from the opportunities they manufactured in the opening 45 minutes. Driven on by their fanatical home support, Betis could breach a changed United defence again on Thursday, however, the Red Devils showed in the first leg that they can open the Spaniard’s defence at will, and as such, a stake on both teams to score could be worth considering for the second encounter between the teams in a row.

Real Betis vs Man Utd Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Real Betis vs Man Utd lineups and team news for Thursday’s Europa League fixture below.

Real Betis

Midfielders Nabil Fekir and Juan Cruz are out injured for Real Betis, while defender Luiz Felipe is also out of action with a hamstring issue. Betis drew 1-1 at Villarreal at the weekend in La Liga, though they have it all to do to keep their Europa League dreams alive in the second leg on Thursday.

Predicted Lineup for Real Betis: Bravo – Sabaly, Pezzella, Felipe, Abner – Rodriguez, Carvalho – Henrique, Canales, Joaquin, Iglesias

Man Utd

Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are both still out for United, while Alejandro Garnacho is expected to miss out having picked up an ankle injury at the weekend. Casemiro was sent off against Southampton on Sunday, however, he is free to play in Europe. Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof and Marcel Sabitzer could rejoin the squad.

Predicted Lineup for Man Utd: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Martinez, Malacia – Casemiro, Fred, Fernandes- Sancho, Rashford, Weghorst

Player to Watch – Wout Weghorst

Giant Dutch striker Wout Weghorst has been running himself into the ground for United following his loan move from Burnley in January, though the 30-year-old hadn’t had much fortune in front of goal until his effort against Real Betis last week. Weghorst will hope to follow up that strike with another in the Europa League on Thursday.
