Manchester United vs Burton Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview | Carabao Cup
Wednesday’s fixtures include a trip to Old Trafford for Championship outfit Burton Albion. The Brewers are much stronger at home and beat Fulham at the Pirelli at the weekend in a dogged and determined performance which helped Nigel Clough’s men climb away from the relegation zone. This fixture is a welcome distraction from their survival battle in the second tier and they will be able to play with an air of freedom. Manchester United have been excellent so far this season and put three past Everton here at the weekend. They’ve had a day less of rest however wholesale changes are expected with the likes of Luke Shaw, Michael Carrick and Anthony Martial all expected to start. We’re starting with our Manchester United vs Burton best betting tip for today.
Manchester United vs Burton Predictions
Even with a much-changed line-up, it is difficult to see how Manchester United don’t qualify for the fourth round of this competition. The Carabao Cup is a low priority for the Red Devils but they will still want to progress and the likes of Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian will use this as a platform to push for first team starts. If this match was being held at the Pirelli, it is unlikely that the scoreline would be quite so one-sided but the Brewers have failed to score in their last two away trips and shipped five to Leeds at Elland Road. Manchester United -2 is a short-price but looks the best of the handicap options. It’s 8/11 with Paddy Power and kicks-off today’s Manchester United vs Burton predictions.
Correct Score Predictions
United might not break down Burton immediately and it may take a while to find the target. Clough’s side have proved stubborn against Fulham and Norwich recently but United’s quality should eventually shine through. Take a third consecutive 3-0 score-line for the hosts. A 3-0 United win is the second of our Manchester United vs Burton predictions and is 6/1 with 888Sport.
Highest Scoring Half Betting Tip
As mentioned above, the visitors certainly know how to defend and will aim to restrict any damage early on. Manchester United could make changes and eventually find a way through the tired Burton back-line. The Brewers don’t have the luxury of being able to rotate their squad heavily and the three matches inside eight days may begin to take their toll. Take 2nd Half as the highest scoring half at 21/20 with Bet Stars to complete tonight’s Man United vs Burton predictions.
Manchester United vs Burton Team News
Jose Mourinho’s side have been in Champions League and Premier League action during the last seven days so rotation is highly likely. Luke Shaw is back from injury and will use this game to boost his fitness. Matteo Darmian and Chris Smalling are also likely to feature at the back. Michael Carrick usually gets an outing in this competition and is likely to play with Ander Herrera in the centre of the park. Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial could also feature.
Sean Scannell replaced Joe Mason at the weekend in Burton’s 2-1 win over Fulham and Nigel Clough is unlikely to change things around too much here. John Brayford is cup tied however and won’t be selected whilst Will Miller and Liam Boyce remain sidelined. Hope Akpan could be drafted back into the side following his recovery from injury.
Manchester United vs Burton Head to Head
These sides haven’t met since 2006 when Burton were much further down the football pyramid. The first tie was 0-0 at the Pirelli before United triumphed 5-0 in the replay.
