Betting Tips

Monday night’s FA Cup third-round match between League One team Wigan Athletic and English powerhouse Manchester United. This fixture will be held at the DW Stadium.

Wigan vs Manchester United

Despite being 53 spots apart in the league standings, both teams are rebuilding following financial turmoil and years below their prior peaks. Wigan, which began the season with a significant points deduction, overcame Barnsley on New Year’s Day to earn a late equalizer and a 17th-place ranking in the third division.

In League One, Wigan is currently only a few points above the drop zone, and, if things don’t improve quickly. Wigan may be relegated more than once. Shaun Maloney was a highly regarded coach who worked under Roberto Martinez in the Belgium setup. He has only experienced failure since entering the managerial field. The small Scot might use an incredible FA Cup win to increase his popularity because he only lasted a few months at Hibernian and is currently under pressure at Wigan Athletic.

Erik ten Hag saw his squad lose their next away game against Nottingham Forest, letting go of the momentum they had built up from an incredible comeback victory over Villa. The team’s recent performance has suffered as a result of this inconsistency. Erik ten Hag needs to give the FA Cup top attention after his team was eliminated from the Carabao Cup, crashed out of European competition before Christmas, and is currently seventh in the Premier League.

Ten Hag has already lost 14 times this term, and the FA Cup offers his only chance to salvage something from a nightmare campaign. Manchester United already out of Europe and lagging miles behind in the Premier League.


In their last four road games, the Red Devils have only managed one goal, and they have only triumphed in two of their previous nine competitive games. They need to increase that total here but don’t anticipate many fireworks as Wigan is expected to dig in and annoy the visitors.

Wigan has seen fewer than three goals in ten of their previous 12 games in all competitions, including all four of their recent home games. Manchester United have seen less than 2.5 goals in three of their last four away games.

Wigan will play Manchester United for the first time in seven years. They will undoubtedly struggle against a team far superior, but a strong fight is still to be expected. Ten Hag ought to perform well in this matchup because Wigan is currently ranked 17th in League One and the Red Devils won’t play in the Premier League until January 14.

Even though United has not had a good season, a lopsided victory for the Red Devils is anticipated in their matchup on Sunday. It makes sense to back a low-scoring match today. Manchester United has won two of its four away games this season by a score of 1-0.
