Betting Tip: Zorya Luhansk +3.00 @ 4/7 with ladbrokes

Perhaps Zorya Luhansk are being underrated because they’re not a high-profile name in Europe, with the Ukrainian club having recently enjoyed a meteoric rise that saw them finish fourth domestically last term.

Zorya now sit second in the table after accruing twenty points from nine games, with Yuriy Vernydub’s side having come agonisingly close to beating Fenerbahce in their first group game before a late equaliser from their Turkish opponents.

On the basis of the above, you wouldn’t expect them to be priced at 25/1 for victory, especially as Jose Mourinho is likely to rotate his squad as he did for the clash away to Feyenoord a fortnight ago.

On that occasion, the Dutch side enjoyed a 1-0 win and we’re likely to see Wayne Rooney leading the line on Thursday night, with Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Ashley Young also likely to feature.

United are clearly warm favourites to win this clash, with the Red Devils steamrollering Leicester City 4-1 on Saturday, which saw the home side storm into a four-goal lead before taking their foot off the gas.

However, making changes to the first team does mean we often see a disjointed performance and Mourinho will simply be happy to get the victory in this game rather than any fireworks from his side.

We’re working on the basis that a home match against Stoke City on Sunday will take priority and that Zorya know how to defend set pieces better than Leicester did at the weekend.

With this in mind, we can get with the visitors on the handicap market with a degree of confidence. We might even see Zorya get a draw out of this game and they’re certainly unlikely to be outclassed from a side who have blown hot and cold this term.
