Anderlecht vs Manchester United Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Anderlecht and Manchester United will be eager to put in a strong performance when they square off at the Stade Constant Vanden Stock on Thursday night in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-finals tie. Anderlecht were held to a nil-nil home draw by Gent last time out in the Jupiler League despite the fact they had more shots on target than the visitors. On the flip side, Manchester United won 0-3 on the road at Sunderland in the Premier League at the weekend thanks to goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Manchester United are favourites to win here despite the fact they have only won two of their five European away games this season. On the contrary, Anderlecht have won five of their six Europa League home fixtures this season, having scored at least two goals in five of these. Manchester United should be able to find the back of the net in this one, particularly due to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s impressive run of form, but I’m expecting Anderlecht to snatch at least one point from this clash.

Both teams to score - Yes at 10/11

Anderlecht or Draw at 17/20

Anderlecht Preview

Anderlecht have only registered a goalless home draw against Gent at the weekend, but they still lead the way by four points in the Jupiler League’s six-team championship playoffs. The Belgians are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning four and drawing once in the process. The most impressive fact is that Les Mauves have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five competitive fixtures. On home soil, Anderlecht are currently on a ten-game undefeated run across all competitions, having conceded just one goal in the process. Furthermore, Anderlecht have won five of their last six European home fixtures, scoring at least three goals in three of these. In addition, the Belgian outfit beat Tottenham 2-1 at home in the group stage of this competition less than a year ago. These two sides are meeting for the 7th time, and Anderlecht won two of the previous six match-ups. Anderlecht were the Jupiler League’s topscorers during the regular season, as they managed an impressive tally of 67 goals in 30 rounds. Lukasz Teodorczyk was the division’s topscorer with 20 goals under his belt, while Youri Tielemans helped the team with 12 goals and eight assists in his 29 league appearances. In addition, Teodorczyk has been Anderlecht’s most dangerous player in front of goal throughout this Europa League campaign, scoring seven goals in his eleven appearances.

Manchester United Preview

After two disappointing draws against West Brom and Everton, Manchester United have returned to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend thanks to a comfortable 0-3 victory at Sunderland. They are currently on a 21-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League since a 4-0 defeat at Chelsea back in the middle of October 2016. The Red Devils find themselves only in 5th position in the Premier League table with 57 points to their name after 30 rounds, four points off the 4th-placed Manchester City. There is a four-point deficit to make up, which means that United still have a chance to qualify for next season’s Champions League via the Premier League. Of course, they can also qualify for next season’s Champions League if they manage to win the Europa League this season. Away from home, Manchester United have only lost two of their last ten away games across all competitions and are currently on a two-game winning streak. However, they haven’t been at their best on the road throughout this Europa League campaign, registering two defeats, two victories and one draw in five European away games this season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has enjoyed an excellent season so far, as he managed to score 28 goals across all competitions.
