OLYMPIAKOS V MANCHESTER UNITED - Champions League Last 16.

Manchester United are favourites to establish a first-leg lead when they take on Olympiacos at the Karaiskakis Stadium tonight, in a game being shown live on ITV.

Here are Betfair's opinions. 

Man United have won their four encounters with Olympiakos, all in the Champions League.

This has been a dismal domestic campaign for the Red Devils, yet there was plenty to admire about their European progress before Christmas. Four group triumphs and two draws mean they are one of only three unbeaten teams left in the competition alongside Real and Atletico Madrid. Their last continental trip produced the highlight of David Moyes' reign - a 5-0 thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen.

Recommended Bet: Back Man United to win @ 5/4

Man United have kept a clean sheet in their last four Champions League games, the best current run

The 2012/13 Premier League champions are defender-light right now, but that hasn't stopped them shutting out Arsenal and Crystal Palace in their last two matches, keeping successive Premier League clean sheets for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Man United have been breached just three times in total in this term's Champions League, and twice in four meetings with Olympiakos.

Best Bet: Back Man United to keep a clean sheet @ 7/4
