• PSV should win and advance
• It is Wolfsburg or United
• Draw has great odds
This will be the most interesting matchup amongst Tuesday’s Champions League games, so let’s have a look at the Wolfsburg v Man United odds and scenarios!
This is like a final for Wolfsburg and Manchester United in the last round of the 2015/16 Champions League group phase. Okay, this previous sentence is like a cliché that either of the players or the managers, or more like a member of the press or some pundit would say before the game. However, the setting is exactly like a final. One match, and only one can triumph – if PSV defeats CSKA of course, but the Dutch club should overcome Moscow in Eindhoven anyway… So, let’s check the possible scenarios and these great Wolfsburg v Man United odds provided by one of the best online sports betting sites around, Bet365 Sportsbook.
Wolfsburg v Man United scenarios
So, if PSV defeats CSKA Moscow, they will qualify, it is so simple for them. And since they are 1.80 (4/5) favourites at Bet365 Sportsbook, it would be a major upset if they failed to beat them. Then, from Wolfsburg and Manchester United, the winner would also qualify and the losing team would be referred to the Europa League knockout phase. In case of a draw, Wolfsburg will advance, and United would go to the Europa League, unless PSV fail to win the other game, as then both the Wolves and the Red Devils would advance.
Many of those, who bet on sports in UK know that the most complicated scenario would be United suffering a defeat and PSV playing a stalemate. Then goal difference would be calculated, so MU would eliminate if going down by more than one goal, since PSV would have a goal difference superior by at least 1. If Manchester would suffer a one-goal defeat with PSV playing a draw, then the number of goals scored would determine the team advancing. PSV have 6, while United have 5.
Wolfsburg v Man United odds
Wolfsburg will play in front of their home crowd and based on some convincing performances they have shown in the competition, it is understandable that they are favourites against this stuttering Man United side. The Wolves have internet betting odds of 2.30 (13/10) to win this game. United are 3.30 (23/10) underdogs, while draw goes for 3.50 (5/2) – the latter two being the best online betting odds you find around the net on these markets.
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competition, and it can be extended to seven if we don’t count shootouts. Still, they have played three draws in a row in their last three outings. Wolfsburg are without a win in their last two games, having played a goalless draw at Augsburg and going down 2–1 against Borussia Dortmund at home on Saturday.
The last time these two have met, United were able to win 2–1 at Old Trafford on the last day of September. The Red Devils actually have won all three of their meetings so far, having beaten Wolfsburg twice in 2009 – one of them saw the last hat-trick of Michael Owen’s career, his only in a Manchester United shirt.
If you are looking for a safe bet, Wolfsburg/draw on the Double Chance market would do it for 1.34 (17/50). However, looking at the setting, and considering the really cool odds one of the best online sportsbooks in the EU, Bet365 Sportsbook has set, I’d go for a draw.
Prediction: draw for 3.50 (5/2) at Bet365 Sportsbook
