Casemiro picked up a red card in the 34th minute, and that made life very tough for Manchester United the rest of the game. Man United finished with 46 percent of the possession and four shots on target. Donny van de Beek and Christian Eriksen are dealing with long term injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game.

Shane’s Free Pick

With Manchester United having such a big lead, I would expect they are going to rest some of the regulars. I do expect they are also going to take a very defensive shape, and Real Betis won’t have many quality scoring chances here. This is going to be a lower scoring game and the under is going to cash here.
