Juventus vs Manchester United Preview

Juventus vs Manchester United

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 7th November 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Juventus welcome Manchester United in this game as they look to seal their passage into the next round of the Champions League.

The Old Ladies currently hold a 5 points advantage over Jose Mourinho’s men and if they win this game, they would guarantee their place in the knockout stages.

The last game between these two teams was very one-sided as Juventus taught Manchester United a hard lesson of football, and the 1-0 scoreline was admittedly a tad generous thanks to some quality goalkeeping from David de Gea.

Juventus are in incredible form at the moment – the last time the Old Ladies lost a competitive game was in April.

They have since gone on a run of 19 games unbeaten since that time and they have won 13 of the 14 competitive games they have played this season.

Manchester United’s recent form looks pale in comparison to Juve’s.

The Red Devils have struggled to compete since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, and this is probably their worst campaign since that time.

United managed to collect all three points in their weekend game against Bournemouth.  They have now won just 3 of their last 9 games in all competitions, and have just 4 points from their opening 3 Champions League games.

Jose Mourinho’s men have lost 2 times on the road this season and they conceded 10 goals from those games, including 3 each at West Ham and Brighton.

Bookmakers have priced Juventus up as odds-on favourites to get the job done against a struggling Manchester United.

Goal markets are currently undecided as to whether we will see goals or not which makes sense as this game sees a strong Juve defence come up against a poor Manchester United defence.
