Berba can find the net against Ajax

Man United are aiming to book their place in the last sixteen of the Europa League. They won the first leg of their tie against Ajax 2-0 in Holland but they will be resting plenty of players because they take on Norwich on Sunday.

United have also been hit hard by injuries but they should have enough strength in depth to beat the Dutch giants. Old Trafford is a fortress and United have not lost any of their last eleven home matches in Europe.

One player that will definitely not be taking part is Rooney. He has been sent home from training because he has a throat infection. Valencia, Anderson and Vidic are also unavailable.

A Man Utd home win is 4/11, the draw is 7/2 and an away win is 8/1. United don't need to score goals, they may sit back at home to try and counter the Dutch side.

Ajax are strong on the road, they have lost just five of their last twenty away Europa League Matches, but they are also carrying numerous injuries.  I would look at backing under the goals, under 2.5 goals is 23/20.

Man Utd will be resting players but they have a strong squad. If you fancy it to be goals galore, the Match Winner is for five or more goals to be scored at 5/1. One player who can bang in the goals and who should be starting for United is Berbatov.

He has been a bit part player this season but he is still an immense player and he has never aired his grievances in public. He looks a massive price at 5/1 to open the scoring and he is 5/4 anytime scorer.

Ryan Giggs looks to have shrugged off an injury and he is making his 900th appearance for the Champions.

He has already written his name plenty of times into the history books and it would not be a surprise for him to find the net against Ajax, he is 4/1 anytime scorer. There have been issues off the field over the years but to United fans, he is a legend.

Manchester United have scored a goal in the 85th minute or later in five of their last six games in Europe. You can back a goal to be scored from the eighty-sixth minute to full time at 2/1.

Ajax have failed to score in seven of their last nine matches in Europe (excl. quals). United kept a clean sheet in the reverse fixture and they look a great price at 8/11 not to concede against the Dutch team.

United should be too strong for Ajax and they are 23/20 to win to nil, a tasty price.
