Europa League: Get an enhanced 6/1 on Manchester United to beat St Etienne

European Competition returns this week and following Champions League ties on Tuesday and Wednesday, this fixture is the highlight of Thursday’s Europa League schedule. An in-form Manchester United side are widely listed at an odds on price of 1/3 to beat St Etienne when the teams meet at Old Trafford but for those who aren’t already customers of Paddy Power, that figure can be lifted to a more interesting 6/1.

Short favourites

Paddy’s standard price on United to win this first leg is 1/4 while you can get that best of 1/3 with the likes of William Hill and Betway. The odds setters are so confident that Jose Mourinho’s men will come through in this match that their opponents are way out at a best of 12/1 with BetStars for the win while the draw can be backed at a top price of 9/2 with BetFred and BetBright.

United may well rest some players from their Premier League starting XI but comparatively they should be too strong for the French outfit so, if this sounds like an interesting offer, what do you need to do in order to claim it?

Pole position

Even if United drop star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the bench, they should have a strong enough side to overcome their opponents with Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial or possibly Rooney and Marcus Rashford leading the line. The Red Devils will need to win with a decent margin ahead of the away leg in France so will go on the attack from the first whistle.

The outcome can’t be certain but an increase from a general book price of 1/3 up to 6/1 under this offer is worth considering so if you qualify as a new Paddy Power customer, head across to get involved.
