The draw for the semi finals of the 2016/17 Europa League took place today. We have two very tasty ties coming up at the start of next month. The Premier League has its solitary representative in European competition in Manchester United. Can they go all the way? Listed as favourites away to a very difficult Celta Vigo side. Hmm.

What do we all think for these two games?  @delfino, @KikoCy, @giraldi, @Icongene, @dogmeister, @rangers234, @ElPrincipito007, @KingSoccertips, @vasilli07, @betcatalog, @immortal--, @DW_United, @discipline, @WinningAdvice, and @CloughandTaylor.

I think there is enough value to bet on Celta Vigo @ $8 to win it all. If Man Utd continue to be so inconsistent, they will surely be punished.

I'm not usually a fan of Guillem Balague. Talk about the king of self promotion. Up there with Piers Morgan and Tai Lopez. Anyway, he did rightly point out that a lot of people are still thinking Celta Vigo are here to make up the numbers. On their day, they can beat anyone. This will be a tough tie for Manchester United. I think it could even go down to away goals or extra time and pens to decide it. In the other tie, I'd love to see Ajax reach the final but we shall see.

Difficult confrontation for each prediction, especially in the final result, so I will rely on Ajax's defensive dynamics, as well as the necessary caution of Lyon, since every goal is very important, I do not agree that many goals are favorites
AJAX AMSTERDAM vs OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS @@ +3.50 Under, odds 1.50

Low odds there! You are digging deep this time around. I'd push a bit further and be tempted by under 2.5 goals. A one goal game possibly?

Manchester United is aiming to win the game, since it will have another way to compete in the next Champions League because it has no secure place in the league. I expect Mourinho, who is quite experienced at this stage, to face the game very tightly, closing the space and hitting the counter-attacks, so the few goals have the first floor

Low odds again. I do think it will be tight though. I just can't decide who will win. Celta should not be underestimated.

Mourinho will play negative and bring the game back to OT.

Celta have nothing to play for in La Liga and will throw everything they have at this game.

Iago Aspas is a brilliant player and it will be interesting to see if United can contain him and Guidetti.

Strangely, United have been playing better away from home but Celta are no pushovers.

United missing a lot of their main players but Jones, Pogba and Smalling are back. As a United fan, this doesn't inspire me in the slightest. Pogba has underperformed and Jones and Smalling are very error prone. In a game where Celta will be looking to counter it's likely they will shit the bed.

Bailly also a massive boost but I can't see Jose risking him today ahead of the gunners match this weekend.

Fellaini will play as he is banned in EPL so will need to spread the rest. Mata was on the bench vs Swansea and he might also make a cameo.

I think the odds drifted with the news above given that Darmian and Bailly were anticipated to be CBs with Valencia and Young as RB and LB respectively. I would personally like to see Tuanzebe start for us as CB but we know Jose doesn't grant opportunities too often.

Mkhitaryan will need to step up tonight and this has been a problem, when certain players haven't been performing we have needed others to step up and this just hasn't happened regularly enough.

We will approach this like Chelsea I reckon with Rashford up top and Lingard in the hole behind him. Fellaini long ball control and look for a 1-2 into the box.

Likely to do the long ball scenario as the team looks tired too.

 

Now onto my own rose-tinted view as a United supporter.

We are unable to finish chances and kill games. A lot of times, reminiscent of my hometown team in Cyprus, we will go in to the half with a 1-0 lead and come out complacent in the second half. After missing a lot of chances in the first half, the opposing team comes out galvanized. I have seen this too many times this season with United, playing like a team that's worthy of 7-8th place in the EPL.

Mourinho will probably take a draw depending on how we show up in the first half. I like the unders based on his track record and of course, the team's performances this season.

I can see Celta - United ending as a 1-1 @ 6.5

X @ 3.25

HT/FT: 2/X @ 18.00

BOL!

Considering Celta's recent results, Mourinho's experience in these kind of situations and the importance of winning this competition both for Man United (because of the CL spot) and Mourinho (European title in his first season already), I think it's not too wrong to back United tonight.
