Meanwhile, Sheriff will be looking to follow up their victory on the opening night with a second victory against the Red Devils.
Before Betting On Sheriff vs Manchester United
This is a pretty big night in the Europa League for Manchester United, as a second straight defeat in the competition will leave them with very little room for error in the final fixtures in the group stages. United were extremely disappointing in the previous round of fixtures, as they lost at Old Trafford to Real Sociedad. Despite the Spanish side taking the points after a controversial penalty, the Red Devils offered very little in the final third to get back into the game.
Sheriff come into this fixture as the early group leaders, as they were extremely commanding winners in the opening fixture in the group. Their 3-0 win against Omonia on the road was a strong start to the group stages, and they will be looking to follow up against United this week.
It will be a historic event on Thursday, as United and Sheriff clash for the very first time. It will also be the first time that the Red Devils have played a competitive fixture against a Moldovan side. Meanwhile, Sheriff has lost both of their previous fixtures against English opposition.
Sheriff has a very good home record in this competition, as they are unbeaten in five. During that run, they have recorded three victories. However, United’s away record is also very strong, as they have scored at least once in their previous 15 matches on the road in Europe.
