888sport has a great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed, which is ideal for this Wednesday’s Champions League clash between CSKA Moscow and Manchester United.
Manchester United travel to the Arena Khimki on Wednesday night, to take on CSKA Moscow in the Champions League Group Stage. Both sides picked up valuable matchday two wins in Group B, so the pair will aim to build on those results when they meet in Moscow.
CSKA ran out 3-2 winners over PSV Eindhoven to pick up their first points in the group, while Man United also recovered from a losing start to see off VfL Wolfsburg - after they came from behind to record a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils first met CSKA Moscow at the same stage of the competition back in October 2009, when Antonio Valencia netted a late winner to give United all three points. Valencia struck again late on in the reverse fixture as well - as Man Utd recovered from being 1-3 down to rescue a point with a 92nd-minute equaliser.
The Russians staged a two-goal comeback of their own in a meeting with United’s fierce rivals Manchester City 12 months ago, before claiming their first win on English soil with a 2-1 win at the Etihad.
Louis van Gaal’s men have lost their last three away games in the Champions League proper, although they did record a 4-0 win at Club Brugge in the playoffs of this season’s competition. Surprisingly, they have only ever won one of seven matches - home and away - against Russian opposition, so will look to improve both of those stats on Wednesday night.
CSKA Moscow to win is 7/4 on 888sport, but the bookmaker is enhancing those odds to 21/4 with treble odds. A Manchester United win at the Arena Khimki is boosted to over 23/5 (5.65 to be exact) from the normal odds of 31/20, while the draw will pay better at 36/5 when the price is tripled.
Open an account with 888sport and you will get treble odds on your first bet, up to £10 maximum stake.
You’d be crazy to let the offer pass if you don’t have an account with 888sport and the great thing about this treble odds offer is that all the winnings will be paid in cash, which means it can be withdrawn straight away and there is no obligation to make another bet with the extra winnings like some other enhanced odds offers.
The offer applies to any sport and 888sport has an extensive choice with thousands of markets on over 20 different sports. However, it’s this Champions League clash that will create most interest this Wednesday evening - as CSKA Moscow and Manchester United look to make it back-to-back wins in Group B and seize some of the initiative in their hunt for a qualification place.
