Wolverhampton vs Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions
There’s an enticing FA Cup clash taking place at Molineux on Saturday 4 January, with Wolverhampton Wanderers hosting Manchester United and it will be interesting to see the line-ups for this game.
Both Premier League teams come out of the festive season with tired squads after a relentless run of fixtures and Nuno Espirito Santo described the situation as absurd although his Wolves team did manage to come from two goals down to beat Manchester City.
Indeed, the Midlands team can be regarded as viable winners of the FA Cup this season although the flip side is that they are in the Europa League and will have their eyes on landing a top four spot in the Premier League, with Wanderers right in the mix.
Similarly, United are looking to land that top four spot and they’re also in the Europa League, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would dearly love to win a trophy during his first full season at Old Trafford.
As mentioned, team selection is key to understanding how this game might pan out, although Wolves should be favourites on the match betting irrespective of team news considering that they are rarely beaten at Molineux.
The team have excellent fighting spirit within the ranks and Adama Traore has blossomed into a potentially world-class talent who has been tormenting opposition defences for much of the campaign.
It was the Spaniard’s introduction that led to the game being changed when these teams met in the Premier League clash and we think it’s worth siding with Wolves on the Asian Handicap market.
United might throw caution to the wind considering that it’s a difficult draw and perhaps the competition just isn’t seen as that essential compared to making sure the Red Devils are a top four entity come the end of the season.
