Celta Vigo may have lost five of their last six La Liga games, but Jose Mourinho won’t be underestimating a side that have beaten Barcelona and Real Madrid this season.

Last season Sevilla lost 7 of their last 9 La Liga games before beating Liverpool in the Europa League final and no doubt Celta’s focus is also now on this competition.

United still have many injuries to contend with for this important semi-final, with the Europa League looking to be their only means of Champions League qualification.

While Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones might return, none of these players will be fully match fit and Mourinho will likely focus on not losing here.

With that in mind, we suggest backing a draw here at stand-out odds of 23/10 with Betfair, plus backing Celta-Draw at 4/6 with Coral on the ‘Double Chance’ market.

We will also recommend a couple of Celta players in the First Goalscorer market – both of whom scored here at the Estadio de Balaidos against Barcelona this season.

Former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has done well since returning to his hometown club – he is the highest scoring Spaniard in La Liga so far this season with 17 goals.

Back him each-way at 13/2 with Paddy Power to open the scoring here on Thursday.

We also suggest backing Danish winger Pione Sisto – who last season scored home and away for his former club, FC Midtjylland, against United in this competition.

Sisto also scored in both legs of their Quarter-Final versus Gent in this competition and he is available at a stand-out 11/1 to open the scoring, again with Paddy Power.

Finally, back 1-1 at 11/2 – nine of United’s Premier League games this season have finished with that scoreline, plus their last two away games in this competition.
