Looking to build off of that stunning victory on foreign soil last week, Manchester United will turn their attention back to European duties when they welcome RB Leipzig to an empty Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Managing to snatch a late winner in Paris against last season’s finalists PSG eight days ago, the former Premier League champions will be desperate to match that level after another domestic blip thanks to a lacklustre 0-0 stalemate against Chelsea over the weekend.

On the flip side, while Manchester United might be showing some continued issues domestically, RB Leipzig have shocked many across Europe after what has been an impressive start to the New Year.

Last seen picking up a 2-1 win against Hertha Berlin on home soil over the weekend, the German outfit have found a route to the top of the Bundesliga table and also managed to open up this year’s Champions League campaign with a routine 2-0 victory against Istanbul Basaksehir last week.

Now in the midst of a four-match winning run across all formats, you might be interested to know that a shock away victory on Wednesday night can be found priced at 11/5 with 888sport.

United’s Old Trafford issues

While Manchester United might have shocked many across Europe as Marcus Rashford helped the Reds snatch a late 2-1 win away at last season’s finalists PSG, the Premier League outfit failed to drag that momentum into the weekend.

Eventually playing out what was an incredibly dull 0-0 stalemate against Chelsea on Saturday evening, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have managed to collect just seven points from their opening five top-flight appearances and find themselves sat all the way down in 15th.

With the pressure still firmly on Solskjaer’s shoulders, the former United icon will have a growing headache over his side’s rather glaring issues on home soil.

Collecting just a point against the Blues last time out, Wednesday’s hosts have remarkably failed to win any of their last five Premier League contests at Old Trafford, including those thumping defeats at the hands of Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

Also failing to score more than a single strike in any of their last four straight outings in Manchester, it should be noted that the Reds are priced at 8/11 with Unibet to once again record under 1.5 goals at Old Trafford.

Leipzig smelling an upset

While RB Leipzig would have been left heartbroken to have seen PSG end their Champions League adventure in the semi-finals over the summer, the German outfit are already seen by many as a potential dark horse this time around.

With Head Coach Julian Nagelsmann only continuing to receive a string of praise from across Europe, the German outfit were last seen picking up a 2-1 win against Hertha Berlin and the mood in their camp is at a real high.

Now in the midst of a four-match winning run across all formats and showing no signs of fatigue since losing Timo Werner to Chelsea over the summer, the midweek guests have found a route to the top of the Bundesliga.

in fact, Leipzig are the only side across Europe’s top-tiers who are yet to taste defeat across any competition since opening the 2020/2021 campaign.

With a real chance to pick up a heavyweight scalp on paper in midweek, you might be interested to know that a red-hot Leipzig can be found priced at 6/4 with QuinnBet to record over 1.5 goals at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
