The magic of the FA Cup is back this weekend as Yeovil Town entertain Manchester Utd in the evening kickoff. With the Huish Park Stadium only holding a capacity of just over 5,000 the place should be packed to the rafters, making for an electric atmosphere (KO 19:55).
There’s good news for football fans also, with Bet365 announcing this morning that they will be streaming the game from the West Country through their website, so you don’t have to miss a single kick or goal – or miss Alexis Sanchez’s Manchester debut.
- Bet365 have a variety of live streaming options – click here through to the special Bet365 football landing page – then select ‘live streaming’ at the top and select the match*
There are plenty of options to catch all the action – You can watch via desktop, mobile, laptop or tablet devices, and with all bases covered all neutral fans at least will be hoping for a shock.
And with new signing Alexis Sanchez poised to make his debut for the Red Devils, its a tie which is surely not to be missed.
As for the game itself, it should prove to be an exhilarating encounter with both sides literally at either end of the footballing tables in England.
The home side are fourth from bottom in League Two, a million miles away from the giddy heights of Manchester Utd, who lie in second place in the Premier League so there’s definitely nothing to lose for the West Country club, they’ll be eager to get stuck into United from the off.
In fact, the Glovers have a pretty decent home record despite their lowly status, winning six of their last nine at home, but to say things will have to go their way would probably be a monumental understatement if they are to get anything out of the game tonight.
Jose Mourinho has indicated that he will play a “very strong team”, although obviously changes will be made and players rested.
Sergio Romero is likely to make an appearance between the sticks, replacing David de Gea, while Ander Herrera, Maraoune Fellaini, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Marcus Rashford should all start.
It would take a monumental shock for Yeovil to get anything out of the game, however if you wish to dream the home side can be backed at a mammoth price of 25/1, which speaks volumes of their chances.
The Utd win is unsurprisingly totally unbackable at a paltry 1/10, however there may be better value dipping our toes into the correct score market.
The 2-0 Manchester Utd win looks plenty big enough at 6/1, and with boisterous home support and the Huish Park pitch to contend with, the home side could keep things reasonably tight.
Strap yourselves in, the magic of the FA Cup is back!
