Premier League Duo Handed Favourable Ties

The top football betting sites reacted to Manchester United’s play-off victory over Barcelona by installing them as the new 5/2 favourites with bet365 to win the Europa League. 

Having drawn the first leg 2-2 in Spain, the Red Devils recovered from the setback of conceding an early goal to knock the La Liga giants out of the competition. 

Robert Lewandowski put Barca ahead from the penalty spot, but second half goals by Fred and Antony set United roaring in the last-16. 

They will undoubtedly fancy their chances of making further progress after being drawn against Real Betis in the last-16. 

Betis are challenging for a top four spot in La Liga, but are miles adrift of Barcelona in the standings and will find it difficult to compete with United. 

Arsenal also look a good bet to reach the quarter-finals after being paired with Sporting Lisbon. The two teams have met on four previous occasions and the Gunners have never been beaten. 

Juventus are desperate to win the Europa League after being docked points in Serie A, but could find it tough to get past Freiburg. 

The German side were unbeaten during the opening stage of the competition and have been going extremely well in the Bundesliga. 

Roma have also been handy a tricky tie against Real Sociedad, although manager Jose Mourinho’s European know-how could prove to be invaluable.
