“Manchester United” won an ordinary victory over Burnley, although this has not always been easy to do in recent years. Now the Mankunians are just one point behind Arsenal in terms of losses and two behind Tottenham, which is in fourth position. Could anyone have guessed such an alignment for the new year at the beginning of the season? Manchester United are still unbeaten under Rangnick, but there is still a lot of work to do. The “Devils” kind of started the tournament with title contenders.
Have Wolverhampton more mundane tasks – European cups. Bruno Lage’s team shows the most cynical and boring football – for the result. But it works! Now the “wolves” are in eighth place, and up to the seventh line there are only three points, however, in terms of lost ones. Wolverhampton have won five out of ten away games this season and lost three. Excellent statistics before the meeting with Man United.
Bookmakers after such an incredible victory against The Burnley are giving just 1.59 to win the match against the Wolves. Considering Wolverhampton’s strong defense and United’s not yet fully understood style, such a ratio is rather strange. “Wolves” themselves can defend heroic zeros. X2 is quoted at 2.48…
The guest handicap (+1) is estimated at a very good 1.90… Since the return of Wolverhampton to the elite, they have never lost to the Devils by more than one goal difference. This statistic alone is enough to draw attention to the outcome.
Manchester United have trends not in their favor: seven out of ten games are less in total, in the same number of matches they could not score more than 1.5 goals and conceded at least once.
Wolverhampton only once played a total over 2.5 (in the same segment). The opponent managed to break through the individual total of 1.5 in only one meeting. At the same time, Lazhe’s team lost three times.
Total less than 2.5 is quoted for a decent 1.87…
Forecast and bet on the match “Manchester United” – “Wolverhampton”
There is a clear trend for total less. It is strange that bookmakers give such a large coefficient – 1.87… This is really a lot. The guests will definitely put on the Portuguese “bus” and will play for a draw. The most important thing is that they do it very well – conceded two goals in seven games.
