It has been a pretty woeful start to the season in the Premier League for Manchester United. They will be hoping they can make a better start to their Champions League campaign when they lock horns with Turkish giants Galatasaray on Tuesday night.
It was another desperately disappointing result for the Red Devils at the weekend as they went down 1-0 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, making it their worst start to a season in 34 years.
Although not in any immediate danger, Erik Ten Hag is suddenly finding himself under a bit of pressure – currently 11/1 with starsports.bet to be next Premier League manager to leave their post – and needs to start finding solutions quickly.
A poor result here and the pressure would really start to mount on United’s Dutch boss and the anger and frustration from the supporters would also start to ramp up.

On the flip side, Galatasaray have made a strong start to their domestic campaign in Turkey and find themselves unbeaten after their first six league fixtures.
They have a few recognisable names in their team. Former Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who of course had a brief stint with Manchester United, will be coming into this one with a point to prove and hoping to make an impact.

United’s poor form is clearly hurting the confidence and mood around the club and, although I do believe United have superior quality to their Turkish counterparts, I can see them being left frustrated again here. I am backing a draw at 7/2 with starsports.bet.
There are also a host of specials and price boosts for this game over on starsports.bet and I like the look of Casemiro and Lucas Torreira to be carded which has been boosted to 10/1 from 17/2.
