Can Manchester United scrape through to the last 16 of The Champions League tonight by either beating Wolfsburg or praying that PSV can’t win against CSKA Moscow. They have a chance but the way they have been playing under Louis Van Gaal….I don’t know, it might all depend on whether CSKA can hold off PSV if you ask me…you can’t blame me for thinking like that, Manchester United scored only 5 goals in November and Wolfsburg are there toughest competition in the group!
It’s a big game, no questions asked…the way Man U plays though won’t be enough to get past Wolfsburg if you ask me, unless Martial, Mata or Depay shine through and score a goal or two! Man United are being accused of boring football but that doesn’t always matter if the result comes along…if they get the win via a boring game, does it matter tonight? As long as they win, right?
However, they could lose and end up in the Europa League, no idea how fans would feel about that, would it bother you to be in that competition and to have to play that Thursday night game? All I know is that Man U need that win because a draw isn’t a guarantee to progress, not if PSV win….I[‘m sure United fans will be keeping an eye on that game as they pray for their team to attack, attack and attack…like the team of old, the one that was known for attacking football! Playing safe could cost the club a spot in the last 16…even though they have most of the possession in recent games….does it matter of you do nothing with it….I mean, it was like 2 shots on target in the last game for the Red Devils?
