Manchester United are playing away against Valencia in a search for a win which will help them with the fight for the first place versus Juventus. Until this game, The Red Devils are with two points less from the first placed team – Juventus who will play versus the outsider in the group Young Boys.
In this season of the Champions League, Valencia didn’t perform well, and for the first time in their history failed to qualify for the knockout phase of the tournament for a second consecutive year. The Bats had a victory only once – against Young Boys on Mestalla Stadium. They drew against Manchester United on Old Trafford but this was not enough, and the team will have to satisfy with playing in Europa League in the spring.
Manchester United qualified for next round of the competition after a late comeback in Torino against Juventus. Many specialists claim that under the leadership of Jose Mourinho the team is not performing well enough, but it can’t be denied that this season the character of the team we remember when Sir Alex Ferguson was a manager of The Red Devils, is returning. Since the start of the season United achieved several comebacks, and even without scoring much in the Champions League the team accomplished their target in the competition.
We expect a minimal victory for the away team but will bet for total goals. Valencia and Manchester United until this game have scored overall ten goals, but conceded just seven. I will back Under 2.5 Goals, with Manchester United 1-0 Correct Score.
