After locking horns in the tie’s first leg at Spotify Camp Nou, the red devils are ready to host the Catalans in the theatre of dreams. On Thursday night, both teams will push to score the tiebreaker as the score is tied 2-2 after a fierce competition last week. 

Supporters are vocal in supporting their favourite teams and are invested in the betting preview of the much-awaited clash to win big both on and off the field. 

Manchester United Preview and Odds

Man United is at +130 in the Europa League odds for Thursday’s massive encounter. United supporters are hyped for the second leg and placing bets on their team’s chances to knock the Catalans out of the tournament. However, it is essential to understand how betting works, therefore looking at a guide or betting guide to increase the possibility of a win in such vital games of the season is highly recommended.

Manchester United have continued their prolific premier league form after the Europa League clash by brushing aside Leicester City with a convincing 3-0 victory over the weekend. Marcus Rashford also continued his red-hot form by scoring a brace against the Foxes at Old Trafford. The 25-year-old forward has produced his best start in a united shirt and took his goal tally to 24 this season.

The Red Devils of Manchester United have been showing their prowess in the Premier League, currently occupying third place in the standings, thanks to the masterful guidance of their coach, Erik ten Hag. Their recent triumph against Leicester City has propelled them closer to the top of the table, putting them within three points of the sluggish Manchester City, who Nottingham Forest recently held. While they are still five points behind the league leaders, their recent victory has given them a boost of positive energy as they prepare to take on Barcelona in their Europa League playoff second-leg match.

FC Barcelona Preview and Odds

Barcelona is at +130 in the Europa League odds for Thursday’s massive clash. Barcelona is the league leader with eight points cushion at the top over their bitter rivals. The Blaugranas only lost once and drew twice in the Spanish league with a near-perfect defensive record. They also secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Cadiz the weekend ahead of the second-leg clash with the red devils. 

Although the absence of some key players in defence and midfield due to injuries may affect the outcome of the game versus united, Xavi’s side is hopeful for a victory. Another critical factor to consider is that Barcelona has a knack for dodging defeat against united, having gone unbeaten against the Red Devils in their last five encounters since the 2007-08 Champions League semi-finals.

Both teams are determined to go through to the next round. However, the hopes of one of these titans rising from the ashes to secure a coveted European trophy must end on Thursday night.
