Manchester United vs Juventus
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 23rd October 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester.
The prodigal son returns to Old Trafford. It’s time for Manchester United to face the beast it created.
The Red Devils host the team from Turin on the third match-day of the UEFA Champions League. Both teams have had comfortable campaigns in Europe so far. But the same cannot be said about their league season.
While Juventus has been flourishing in Italy, as usual, United has been struggling to stay even in the top 10. Coach Jose Mourinho was on the verge of being sacked before a turnaround victory against Newcastle United and a tough away draw against Chelsea saved his fortunes.
Against the in-form Juventus, the home team is not expected to shine that well. Their season has been in shambles so far, with a sign of recovery just being seen in the last two matches. Still, they conceded a total of four goals in those matches.
The terrific pair of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic will probably be too hot to handle for the United defence.
Both teams are known to play defensively, especially against strong teams. The deadlock might be broken by one team at the most. But it is very unlikely that both teams score.
