Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
United’s worries ahead of this trip are unlikely to be quelled by the return of Marouane Fellaini this week. However, he could give them a vital threat off the bench. He is United’s big physical presence, and Juve have one of those returning too. Mario Mandzukic is a man for the big occasion, as England found out in Russia. He’s back to fitness here, and the Croatian is likely to provide a real threat to the Red Devils.
We expect a full-strength line up from the hosts, who know they can book their place in the next round with a victory. They rotated at the weekend, and they’re set to bring back their big stars as they look to claim another victory in Europe.
Juventus v Man United Tips
Juventus have won all three Champions League games to nil this season, while they have set a new record pace in Serie A. They’ve landed 31 points from 11 games, and that unbeaten start is the best in Italian history. The Old Lady look a cut above many of Europe’s very best this season, so they should be comfortable winners over Man United once again.
The Italians have one of the toughest defences in Europe, while it’s easy to see United coming here and playing for a point. That’s the perfect Jose Mourinho strategy for a game like this, so we see goals being in short supply, especially with United struggling in attack. As a result, we think under 2.5 goals is great value at 10/11 with Ladbrokes. On top of that, we’re backing a Juventus win at 8/13 with Betfair in this clash.
Head to Head Record
The first meeting between these two for 15 years was a homecoming for Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese celebrated a return to Old Trafford with a victory, thanks to Paulo Dybala’s strike. It’s impossible to think of this fixture without remembering a classic clash from 1999, when United claimed a famous win as they went on to land the treble.
