For Real Betis, this is a Herculean task given the manner in which they were put to the sword by the Red Devils. Asides this, history doesn’t favor the Spanish either.
First, they have only progressed from one of their last 6 European ties after losing the first leg. In fact, this was back in 1998/99 season when they overturned a 1-0 first leg deficit against Vejle BK, to win the second leg 5-1.
In what would be their first European game on home soil against an English since beating Chelsea 1-0 in 2005, Real Betis need nothing short of a miracle to get past this hurdle.
Manchester United will be looking to build on their 4-1 win in the first leg of this encounter. Having won the EFL Cup, the Red Devils are aiming to remain on course for a possible second silverware.
They certainly would believe they have a chance of clinching Europe’s second tier club competition to complement what has been a much improved campaign under Eric Ten Haag.
In their last away tie in the league, they got thumped 7-0 by Liverpool. Here, they would be looking to return to winning ways on the road and earn a ticket to the last 8 of the Europa League.

Our betting predictions for Real Betis Vs Manchester United
Real Betis are looking to get past the last 16 stage of a major European tournament after 2 unsuccessful attempts in a row and just one quarter final place in 1997/98 season. However, they face an uphill task given Man United’s all round quality going forward. Based on this quality, with Helabet’s odd of 2.05, we are backing Ten Haag’s men to score at least twice here with the first of our bet tips today.
Tip 1: Man United Over 1.5 Goals
Meanwhile, Man United’s confidence will be buoyed by Marcus Rashford’s new found form which has seen him score 24 goals in top European tournaments for Man United. If he finds the back of the net here, he would be the youngest player to reach 25 goals in major European competitions for the Red Devils. Based on the history at stake here, with Betway’s odd of 2.30, we are backing Rashford to score anytime in this tie.
Tip 2: Rashford Anytime Scorer
