Manchester Utd vs Benfica by Pacifier
Benfica are having a torrid European campaign and risk total elimination unless they can start picking up victories. They face an uphill task here though as United are looking unbeatable on this ground with victories in all seven games played at Old Trafford, scoring a whooping twenty-one goals and conceding ONE, yes one! Douglas is injured for this game and Luisao is out through suspension after seeing red in the reverse fixture in Lisbon. Lisandro Lopez could come in to replace him but he has not played for over a month and this could be an unforgivable ground to give him a run in.
United will qualify with a victory here and they should considering how poor Benfica have been in Europe this season and I reckon United could win to nil which is priced at evens currently, but Benfica need for points means they will need to come out all guns blazing here and if United decide to rest either of Jones or Bailey, error prone Smalling and Lindelof would need to come in and they might nick in a goal. So, I rather take the quote of 2.10 on united winning by at least two goals, a selection that would have paid out in six of seven games played on this ground and I reckon Lukaku and co will need to rediscover their scoring touch ahead of the showdown with Chelsea at the weekend.
I tip United to win fairly comfortably here, 2-0, 3-0, looks very probable.
