Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Thanks to a 1-1 draw with Maribor Sevilla set up a meeting with Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League. Los Sevillanos face an uphill task in the double-header against the Red Devils, but they are definitely capable of matching the Premier League side in front of home fans. New coach Vincenzo Montella is eager to make his Champions League debut with a win, but beating Jose Mourinho’s troops is easier said than done. The Portuguese tactician did remarkably well to bring Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford in the January transfer window and all eyes will be on the former Arsenal man when the two teams face each other at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Man Utd are more of a team than Sevilla, but seeing that Vincenzo Montella’s charges are tough to beat at home, we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils in Wednesday’s football match.
Highlighted Player (Simon Kjaer):
Simon Kjaer began his senior career at FC Midtjylland and in 2008 he moved to Italy, signing a deal with Palermo. The Danish footballer scored his first goal for Palermo on 2 November in a 3-0 victory over Chievo Verona. After making 62 league appearances for the Sicilian outfit he joined Wolfsburg on 30 June, 2010, playing 57 games in the Bundesliga with the Wolves. After ending his loan spell with Roma, the Danish defenders returns to Woflsburg and on 5 July, 2013 he moved to Lille. The 189-cm-tall footballer, who was born in Horsens, Denmark on 16 March, 1989, signed a four-year deal with Fenerbahce on 16 June, 2015 for a fee of €7.65 million. Simon Kjaer was named Danish U19 Player of the Year in 2007 and he has 10 caps for the Denmark U19 team. The Fenerbahce defender played for Denmark at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and he started the games against Netherlands and Cameroon in the group stages of the showpiece tournament.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years ManchesterUnited have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
