Football really is a funny old game and not many people had the foresight to predict that Man Utd would actually end up crashing out of the Champions League the way they did. I was listening to Talksport during the day whilst reading forums and the common consensus was that United would be through easily.
The markets even had United as 1.20 favourites to qualify before the match!
In this post on November 23rd, I highlighted that Man Utd were faced with a similar scenario in 2005 and in the end the result was the same too. They crashed 2-1 that night and last night. To be fair, I think they have been pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes in recent weeks and a defeat such as this has been on the cards. They look blunt in attack and lacking creativity in midfield also. Bet they wish they did sign Sneijder now!
Man City also exited last night but that wasn’t that surprising. They easily beat Bayern Munich 2-0 but Napoli (1.85) did the job in Spain. The pre-match price on Manchester City was hammered in from 1.70 down to 1.55 at kick off. It was surely no secret that Bayern Munich would play a weakened side however once the weakened team was announced at around 6.30pm the money started pouring in and City shortened.
Probably the most easy and obvious trade of the year!
So here is the image I never thought I would see, Manchester United in the Europa League market on Betfair. They go straight in as second favourites @ 8.6 behind Man City @ 7. I cant see either team being that interested in winning that competition unless they are playing each other so an early lay could be on the cards with this!
If anyone was smiling last night it was probably Richard Desmond and co at Channel 5!
