Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Manchester United will be looking to build on a brilliant 2-1 win over PSG when they host Leipzig at their Old Trafford on Wednesday evening. The Red Devils aim to climb to top position in Group H, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Leipzig. Edinson Cavani, who joined the club in the last transfer window, is likely to make his Champions League debut with Man Utd, while Anthony Martial returns from a domestic ban.
The Red Bulls, on the other hand, recorded a routine 2-0 win over Basaksehir in their Champions Laegue opener. The last season’s semifinalists aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The likes of Hartmann, Klostermann, and Laimer are sidelined with injury for the visitors.
