Manchester United have been written off by just about everybody in the build-up to tonight's Champions League quarter-final first leg clash against holders Bayern Munich, but will take particular offence to own sponsors bwin - who were offering odds of 13/2 for David Moyes's side to win at Old Trafford.
The Daily Star reports how it's the longest odds the Red Devils have been to win a match at home in more than a decade, highlighting just how difficult a task they face to progress at the expense of the Bundesliga giants.
Ryan Giggs emphasised in Monday's pre-match press conference that the Manchester United players do not consider themselves to be underdogs when they face Bayern, and believes that the squad has what it takes to upset the odds and win the Champions League this season.
"As players we don't see ourselves as underdogs, we see ourselves as Man Utd playing at home in the Champions League and we can't wait," the 40-year-old was quoted by Sky Sports.
"Obviously Bayern are a fantastic team. They are the holders and are obviously a very strong team and probably favourites in most people's eyes.
"But we are Manchester United, it is at Old Trafford and we have seen so many great nights in Europe especially."
Despite the Manchester United veteran's positive pre-match pep talk, there's no getting away from the fact that Pep Guardiola's charges are overwhelming favourites, and ranked at 11/25 to win on Tuesday, with a draw placed at 18/5.
