Our football match prediction:
Manchester United will be looking to defend their three-goal lead in the Europa League tie against Saint-Etienne when the two teams face each other at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Wednesday evening. The Red Devils recorded a routine 3-0 win over the Ligue 1 outfit in the first leg at Old Trafford, but the English giants can’t afford any complacency in Wednesday’s football match. It is well known that Jose Mourinho wants to everything and we predict that the former Chelsea coach is going to field the best possible side against les Verts in the return leg. Saint-Etienne have nothing to lose in the second leg and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Manchester United. The Ligue 1 side are tough to beat at home, but seeing that the Red Devils have been in a fine form in 2017, the two teams are likely to play out a draw at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Highlighted Player (Florentin Pogba):
Florentin Pogba is a younger brother of famous French player Paul Pogba. Florentin was born in Conakry, Guinea, but he played for France U20 team. Unlike his brother, Florentin Pogba plays as a defender for Saint Etienne. He began his senior career at Sedan and he made 44 league appearances for the club in the 2011/2012 season. In the summer of 2012 he moved to Saint Etienne, but he continued playing for Sedan on loan. After ending his loan spell with les Sangliers Florentin Pogba returned to Saint Etienne and he has been playing for the Ligue 1 outfit ever since. He scored his first goal for les Verts on 3 December n a 2-0 win over Montpellier. On 11 August, 2010 Pogba made his Guinea debut, coming as a substitute in a 2-0 win over Mali in a friendly and he played his first competitive match for the national team in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Mozambique. It has to be noted that his twin brother Mathias plays football as well.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United 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.
