Europa League – Celta Vigo vs Manchester United Prediction and Betting Tips. In the first leg of the Semi-finals in the UEFA Europa League, Celta Vigo host Manchester United at Balaídos. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Celta Vigo vs Manchester United.
Celta Vigo don’t play impressive this season, but they have managed to reach the Semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League and that’s the big success for that Spanish football club. The match against Manchester United could be a good chance for home team to make another good result and try to reach the final of this European competition. They are standing in the middle of the table in LaLiga, without any chance to reach the place which leads in Europe next season. They have nothing to lose, so they will be fully motivated to make good result upfront their supporters, because it would be very hard to make something good in the second leg. Celta didn’t have hard schedule in Europa League so far. First, they eliminated Shakhtar Donetsk, after that Krasnodar, while in the Quarter-finals they were better side and beat Genk. Their recent performance is not on the high level. They lost 3 games in a row, so it will be interesting to see how they will play against team from Manchester.
Manchester United still have a chance to finish the season in the Top 4 in Premier League and qualify in the Champions League, but their main goal is to win the title in Europa League and qualify directly in UCL. Visitors are playing very good this season in all competitions and they didn’t lost many games, but their main problem is many draw games. They lost many points against “weaker” teams, so they have to do their best until the end of the season and make better result. Bad news for Jose Mourinho is that their top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up an injury, so he will not be able to help his teammates until the end of the season. In the Quarter-finals of Europa League they had many problems to eliminate Anderlecht, but they have managed to that after extra-time at Old Trafford. They learned from their mistakes, so they will try to do their best in order to make good result against Celta Vigo in the first leg and make one big step forward to final.
Home side miss Rossi and Planas. On the other side, visitors will be without Shaw, Ibrahimović and Rojo.
