Manchester United’s Premier League campaign this season has left worrying remarks among the fans, but their European journey thus far has been terrific.
Crucial for them now is to carry forward that form into the knock-out rounds as well. Manager David Moyes certainly feels that Champions League is anybody’s game from here on. It is such a competition where one just needs to better in the two legged rounds and not necessarily be the best team in their respective leagues.
Also, Champions League is the only trophy left to play for now, as the Red Devils are already knocked out of domestic cup competitions while they’re out of PL title challenge as well. They are heading into this tie on the back of a 2-0victory against Crystal Palace, which should boost their morale.
In the defence, Moyes could still miss the services of Jonny Evans and Phil Jones. Rio Ferdinand started in the last match alongside Nemanja Vidic and the duo could start again on Tuesday against Olympiakos.
Controlling the midfield is essential in European games and Moyes will have to make a decision whether to include Fletcher or Cleverley or stick with Fellaini. Here could be the possible starting line-up for Manchester United against Olympiakos:
Prediction: 1-1; I fully expect Manchester United to get the all precious away goal against the Greek side, but may not end up winning the match.
