Frozen out, sold out, written off

Wolves massive underdogs, but could the cold weather help?

Hotly-debated ticket prices and freezing temperatures are on the menu in Herning tonight.

Thursday night’s Europa League showdown between FC Midtjylland and giants Manchester United in Herning has been sold out for weeks now – despite disgruntled United fans voicing their displeasure over ‘Scamdinavian’ ticket prices at over 700 kroner.

And while the Premier League outfit can look forward to a warm reception from the many United fans in Denmark, the weather will be less accommodating with temperatures expected to dip below freezing and snow expected in parts of Denmark.

Wolves are underdogs
United’s prospects are less frosty. FCM haven’t played a competitive match since December and former United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives them just a 1-2 percent chance of progressing over two legs. Betting companies aren’t much more optimistic.

Bet 365 has the Wolves as 9/2 underdogs, while United are heavily favoured to win the game 8/13 and eventually progress to the last 16 (1/7).

For those unable to make the match in Herning, Kanal 6 will be showing the match, with coverage starting at 17:00.

In related news, FCM’s youth team will also have a massive match next week as they take on Spanish giants FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League.
