We Are Honoured – ITV To Screen Next NUFC Euro Match
In previous rounds it appears ITV believed there to be only three English teams in the Europa League but United have belatedly been noticed by the broadcaster who previously couldn’t look beyond Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The away match against Anzhi Makhachkala on March 7 has been chosen for live coverage by ITV4, coverage will start at 4.30pm and the match kicks off at 5pm (BST).
The move will of course make the match much more easily accessible to the black and white nation, although for many it does take away the pressing need to have to go to the pub and watch it.
I had begun to wonder whether it would be the final in Amsterdam before ITV would feel obliged to accept that Newcastle United were also in the competition, let’s hope that it only the first of a number of appearances on ITV in the coming weeks/months.
Considering Spurs are only 9/1 (see all odds here) and have to overcome Inter Milan in the next round, Newcastle are great value at 22/1 to win the Europa League, especially if you aren’t already a customer of BetVictor and take advantage of their special offer of a £25 free matched bet.
