Manchester United vs Anderlecht Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Manchester United and Anderlecht will square off on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-finals tie, with both teams looking to continue their good run of form across all competitions. Manchester United won 2-0 at home over Chelsea last time out in the Premier League thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera. On the flip side, Anderlecht managed a narrow 0-1 win at Oostende in the Belgian Championship Group play-offs. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Manchester United should feel confident ahead of this clash due to their recent victory over Chelsea. They can also count on their home form, as Manchester are undefeated in the last 26 home fixtures across all competitions. I’m backing Manchester to win, but for better value, I’m backing them to secure a victory to nil.

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United come into this clash high on confidence following their excellent 2-0 home victory over Chelsea in the Premier League at the weekend. It was an unexpected result for Jose Mourinho’s team, with United losing both previous meetings with the Blues. The most interesting fact is that Chelsea have failed to deliver any shot on target throughout the game, with Manchester United totally dominating Antonio Conte’s men. It has to be said that Mourinho rested the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and the pair should be fresh for this clash against Anderlecht. Overall, Manchester United have enjoyed an excellent run in the Premier League, as they are currently on a 22-game unbeaten streak in the league since a 4-0 defeat against Chelsea back in the middle of October 2016. The Red Devils currently sit in 5th position in the Premier League table with 60 points to their name after 31 rounds, just four points of the 4th-placed Manchester City. However, Mourinho is aiming to go straight into the group stage of next season’s Champions League through the Europa League. Manchester United only managed a 1-1 away draw in Belgium last Thursday despite they had the lead until the 86th minute thanks to a first-half goal from Henrikh Mkhitaryan. On home soil, Manchester United are undefeated in their 26 home fixtures across all competitions, winning 17 in the process. In addition, the Red Devils have won all five of their European home fixtures this season, conceding just one goal in this term.

Anderlecht Preview

Anderlecht, on the other hand, have also enjoyed a decent run of form recently, winning five and drawing two of their last seven games across all competitions. They did well to hold Manchester United to a 1-1 home draw last Thursday thanks to a late goal from Leander Dendoncker, and followed this up with a narrow 0-1 victory at Oostende in the Belgian Championship Group play-offs at the weekend. Anderlecht looked very good at the back during their recent run of form, conceding just two goals in their last seven competitive fixtures. Anderlecht currently sit on top of their Belgian Championship Group play-offs, six points clear of the second-placed Club Brugge KV. Away from home, Anderlecht have only lost two of their last eleven away games across all competitions, and are currently on a three-game winning streak. In addition, the Belgians have lost only once in seven European away fixtures this season and found the back of the net in all of those games. Their sole defeat came at the hands of Zenit St. Petersburg in the final game of their Europa League group stage campaign. Nicoale Stanciu and Lukasz Teodorczyk have been Anderlecht’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout this Europa League campaign, as the pair bagged nine goals and three assists between them.
