Undoubtedly, this is a hopeful match for Red Devils fans who may go to bed with their team as leaders of the championship; something that was unthinkable a few rounds ago and that has created a wave of optimism y confidence in the core of the club. After failing in EFL Cup against a greater City, the team has gotten back together with a win in FA Cup which puts them in the next round and, after an early elimination on UCL, they have three open fronts. OGS decided to let the first team rest and, against Watford, he deployed a team full of second-unit players who showed that he can count on them in this long journey. This way, the main squad can travel to Burnley with less minutes played and completely focused on getting 3 points in Turf Moor, which is a field that has favor Manchester team historically and where they have taken 3 points in their last 4 visits allowing a total of zero goals. It seems an idyllic outlook if we add the fact that Sean Dyche decided to play all his cards on FA Cup match, deploying a team composed of starting players. He hoped to sentence quickly and it was the other way around, his shot backfired him since a late goal sent the match to extra time and later to penalties, adding 120 minutes to his best players. The situation didn’t end up so critical because the moved to the next round. Of course, the match won’t be a walkover, Burnley have pride a tenacity mostly as hosts; but it’s unlikely that United football players with let this chance escape, as they know that their next match is in Anfield, the current champion and candidate to repeat the title in 2020-2021. It would be important to get there in equal conditions (point-wise) and see what happens there. For this, they would have to throw down Ben Mee and Tarkowski wall and take their chances with steadiness and efficiency which I think there will be many.
All in all, the scenario seems suitable for them to take the lead: the extra motivation it represents, the quality gap, the physical recovery, the width of this squad, and a friendly stadium are factors to tilt the scale towards a comfortable win, than towards getting into troubles as a very tough team, in my opinion. The odds for this bet are getting as high as 1.80, so I’ll place my bet on VIP-IBC, and you can do it too if you sign up at the best betting software.
