UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester Utd. vs. Barcelona
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the UEFA Europa League picks from SportsLine soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated almost $33,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season. He has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Barcelona vs. Manchester United, Green is picking United at +0.75 for a -111 payout. While the home team boasts a talented roster and an impressive run in league play, they haven’t fared well in other tournaments so far this year. Green believes that being ousted from Champions League play is an indication of how Barca will play in the Europa League, especially since they have five losses over 11 European games played at Camp Nou.
Green is also very impressed with how Manchester United have revamped themselves as of late, giving manager Erik ten Hag much of the credit. While oddsmakers are favoring Barca in this match, the expert thinks the Red Devils are the team to beat.
“Barça will probably dominate possession, but United will pose a considerable threat on the counterattack, led by the pace and confidence of Rashford,” Green told SportsLine. “Barcelona has been strong domestically this season, but it flopped in the Champions League, and United could cause plenty of problems for Xavi’s men.” Stream the game here.
