Manchester United are now clear favourites to win the Europa League with bet365 after they hammered Roma 6-2 in the first leg of their semi-final clash at Old Trafford.
The bookies appear convinced that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be lifting the trophy next month and the Red Devils put on an entertaining and at times ruthless attacking display on Thursday night.
Villarreal are now 7/2 second favourites after they beat Arsenal 2-1 in the first leg of their clash, although that semi-final is far from over after the Gunners scored an away goal through Nicolas Pepe.
Mike Arteta’s men are 4/1 to win the competition, and will hope for a better display in the home leg at the Emirates next week.

Europa League outright betting
The bet365 odds compilers appear convinced that Manchester United will be lifting the trophy in Gdansk after their impressive display against Roma on Thursday evening.
The Red Devils are into 8/15 favourites to win the Europa League after winning the first leg of their semi-final tie 6-2 against a Roma side who started well and led 2-1 at the break but were hampered by injuries and faded badly in the second half.
They are now 150/1 to win the competition and a turnaround in the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico looks highly improbable.
Villarreal are now 7/2 second favourites to win the Europa League after they beat Arsenal 2-1 in Spain on Thursday night. It was a significant win for former Gunners boss Unai Emery and his side but the tie is far from over and it will be a tense second leg at the Emirates next week.
Arsenal are the third favourites at 4/1, and despite scoring an away goal in Spain, will need to improve on their lacklustre home form this season. Arteta decided not to start a striker on Thursday, but one would assume that will not be the case as the Gunners go in search of goals on Thursday.
Europa League semi-final, second leg
Thursday 6 May
Arsenal (1) v Villarreal (2)
Roma (2) v Manchester United (6)
