Europa League: Sheriff Tiraspol vs Manchester United odds & preview

For their second game of the current Europa League season, Manchester United has to travel to Moldavia. The opponent is Sheriff Tiraspol. During the last season, they made themselves a name by winning against Real Madrid during the group phase. It’s definitely not going to be a walk in the park for the team of Erik ten Hag – even though FC Sheriff lost its edge a bit. Nonetheless, the Sheriff Tiraspol vs Manchester United odds is obviously in favor of the Red Devils from Manchester. We will have a look at the form of both teams and check for the best online football betting odds as well.

Sheriff Tiraspol Form-Check

As already mentioned the team from Moldavia put themselves on the football map last season. For their Champions League debut, they started quite impressive with two wins against Shakhtar Donezk and Real Madrid. After those two wins, they fell behind though and could only collect another point in the group phase. After being relegated to the Europa League they managed to win against Braga in the first leg by 2:0 but the team from Portugal fought back in the second leg and advanced to the second round.

For the current season, they didn’t manage to qualify themselves for the Champions League. In the qualifier, they had to face Viktoria Plzeň and they couldn’t make it to the next round.

Sheriff is especially good if they are playing in front of their home crowd. They were able to score in 10 out of 12 games internationally last season. In the national league, they have yet to get defeated. From 7 games they managed to win 5 of them – and two ended with a draw.

Manchester United’s first Europa League match last Thursday could be described as a relapse into the old days. They lost 1-0 at home to Spanish club Real Sociedad and lacked any real punch, especially offensively. Although the Basques, along with the Red Devils, are considered to be the hottest contenders for advancement in this group, the starting position has already become noticeably tighter before the second group match.

Therefore they obviously need a win against the Underdog from Moldavia. They should definitely be well rested though. Due to the passing of the Queen the last Premier League matchday got postponed.

In terms of personnel, it will be interesting to see whether the Dutch coach will stick to his “loser” team from the previous week against Real Sociedad or whether he will recall some of his key players after the weekend without a game. Bruno Fernandes, Varane or Sancho were all on the bench from the start against the Spanish club. It is unlikely that ten Hag will take such a big risk again. A win on Thursday is absolutely crucial for the rest of the season on the European stage. We expect Manchester United to not take this game lightly and to actually perform well!
