The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted about the club’s return to winning ways over the course of the weekend. Indeed, while the punters propping up our bar were slowly getting annoyed about the manner of life under Jose Mourinho, the win over Newcastle has delighted our resident Red Devils.
They’ll be hoping for that to continue this week in the Champions League as the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ takes his side to FC Basel in the Champions League. Though progression into the second round isn’t technically guaranteed, United are all but secure in the knowledge they’ll be playing in the last-16 for the first time in years, so it’s time to get the bets in.
With the latest Champions League betting odds, the Premier League giants are 10/11 to beat the Swiss side in their latest round of Champions League betting odds, a tempting offer for those backing United to carry on their momentum. Basel, meanwhile, are priced at 3/1 and the draw is made at 47/20, so it’s easy to see who the favourites are.
As you can imagine, the punters in our bar will be lumping on the Red Devils.
