Manchester United vs Real Betis 09-03-23


Manchester United loses to Liverpool 7-0. Even after a few days, it’s still difficult to comprehend what occurred. While United has had some challenges after the departure of Alex Ferguson, this season has so far gone very nicely.

Before the match at Anfield, United was still very much a contender for the Premier League title, despite being the underdog. They defeated Newcastle United in the EFL Cup final the weekend before, winning their first trophy in six years.

A few days earlier, Erik ten Hag’s group eliminated Barcelona from the Europa League, beating the La Liga front-runners to go to the round of 16.

Also, United is still in the FA Cup, and every week, there is more speculation of a potential quadruple.

On the other hand, Liverpool is now experiencing their most dismal campaign in a while. On Sunday, though, they put up a stunning display, especially in the second half.

Real Betis will be at Old Trafford in the Europa League, therefore Manchester United has to put the events of Sunday behind them as soon as possible.

Although recovering from the 7-0 setback to Liverpool would be difficult, Erik ten Hag’s team cannot afford to let it consume them as they battle on several fronts. The only way United can move past such a catastrophic loss is by advancing in both the FA Cup and Europa.

Form Guide: Manchester United

A humiliated Erik ten Hag watched Man United suffer their biggest Premier League defeat in history at the hands of a ruthless Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, making the highs of ending a six-year trophy drought and eliminating Barcelona from European play pale into insignificance.

The 11-game undefeated streak of the Red Devils was ended by goals from Roberto Firmino, Cody Gakpo, Mohamed Salah, and Darwin Nunez in a complete demolition job. Despite causing equal amounts of elation and annoyance in players, fans, and analysts.

Some have already written Man United out of the Premier League championship race with a 14-point deficit to leaders Arsenal, who have played one more game.

The hosts haven’t lost the first leg of a European knockout tie at home since March 2012, but Man United had to do it the hard way after finishing second to Real Sociedad in the group stage. However, a well-earned 2-1 second-leg victory over Barcelona propelled the Red Devils into the round of 16 at the expense of the Catalans.

Manchester United had scored at least twice in 12 straight games in all competitions before being destroyed by Liverpool; their multiple-goal run at Old Trafford stands at an even better 14 games. Ten Hag’s team can immediately win back the fans’ favor with a 20th straight victory at the Theatre of Dreams.

Form Guide: Real Betis

The third Spanish club United has faced in the Europa League this year is Real Betis. They have won two games so far, drew one, and lost one. With a six-point advantage over Roma, Betis won their Europa League group.

They triumphed in each of their three away group games. In La Liga, Betis sits in fifth place, four points back of the last qualifying spot for the Champions League. They have won their past three away games, all against clubs at the bottom of La Liga, and they are unbeaten in their previous four games.

Against Real Madrid on Sunday night, the Greens had a chance to make it four straight victories, but the points were split in a scoreless draw.

The fact that Manuel Pellegrini’s team managed to silence a Los Blancos team that had just scored five goals against Liverpool for 90 minutes must have made him extremely happy.

How the game could go

Real Betis will suddenly be less anxious about their trip to Old Trafford on Thursday. Before Manchester United’s thrashing by their main rivals, they might not have been intimidated by the idea, but Manuel Pellegrini will hope that his squad now has a greater opportunity of getting a win before the rematch at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Undoubtedly, a response from United may be anticipated. Ten Hag’s side has at least demonstrated that they are capable of pulling through a crisis. Anything less than a victory for the English team would come as a significant shock because the Red Devils are excellent at home.

Betting Predictions

Over 2.5 goals

United’s players will be itching to get supporters back onside after the weekend, and the hosts are expected to play full-throttle football on Thursday. That should make for an open contest against a dangerous Real Betis outfit and the goals could flow at Old Trafford as a result. 11 of the Red Devils’ last 13 fixtures in Manchester have featured over 2.5 goals and bettors should expect a similar outcome when Betis come to town. Bet9ja have 1.67, 1xbet have 1.75 and Paripesa have 1.75 odds.


Manchester United will be licking their wounds following their harrowing 7-0 loss to Liverpool on Sunday and the Red Devils, who could name a much-changed XI on Thursday. They could be vulnerable defensively again when Real Betis visit Old Trafford. United have kept only two clean sheets in their last six assignments on home soil, and that record makes an away goal likely this week. Though Erik ten Hag’s troops have lodged goals of their own in 100% of their last 18 tests at the Theatre of Dreams. Expect that excellent run to continue and for both teams to register here. Bet9ja have 1.84 odds, Paripesa have 1.91, and 1xbet have 1.91 odds.
