Manchester United cannot afford to ease up if they are to clinch the all-important top spot in their Europa League group.

Winning the group would see them go straight through to the last 16 rather than face a team eliminated from the Champions League in the play-off round but they trail Real Sociedad by three points with two games remaining.

This should be a routine victory for the hosts and 87/100 for them to win both halves is our opening Man Utd vs Sheriff Tiraspol prediction.

Manchester United Odds

Any chance of complacency should have been erased by the way in which United struggled to get past Omonia Nicosia last week.

Nigeria international and boyhood United fan Francis Uzoho produced the performance of his life with save after save as Erik ten Hag’s men peppered the hosts’ goal, only for substitute Scott McTominay to seal a 1-0 victory in the third minute of stoppage time.

Ten Hag knows his team need to be more clinical and United’s top scorer right now is Marcus Rashford, who has five goals in all competitions.

He should have increased that tally against Omonia when he had 10 attempts and will hope to make amends here.

“He did a lot of things well but finally he knows that he has to be more clinical and he had to score a goal,” Ten Hag said after that game.

“When you have such good movements, you make such good combinations, you have such good actions, then you have to finish.

“But I know sometimes it’s the game, it’s not your night and it’s about the form of the day.”

Looking at the 13/5 for Rashford to score first in a United win.

Sheriff Tiraspol Odds

Sheriff may have surprised European giants and eventual winners Real Madrid in the Champions League last season but, after much change to their side since, they have lacked the quality to trouble United or Sociedad.

They lost 2-0 at home to both teams before a 3-0 defeat in Spain two weeks ago. United’s 2-0 win in the reverse fixture gave us a 21/4 correct score pay-out as first-half goals from Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo got the job done.

The Moldovans are realistically battling for third place in Group E given they would have to win at Old Trafford by two goals or more to still be in contention for a top-two finish.

They can clinch third place if they achieve a better result here than Omonia do at home to Sociedad but next week’s clash with the Cypriots is likely to prove decisive.

We’ll back United to do the same as Sociedad did in both fixtures against the same opposition and take 19/4 for a 3-0 home win as the last of our Man Utd vs Sheriff Tiraspol betting tips.
