Valencia v Manchester United match preview and predictions 12th December 2018

Time: 23.00


Valencia entertains Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League group H both sides keen to bag the maximum in the clash that could go either way.

Valencia will be counting on their native home support to get the job done and visiting Red Devils.

The home side will be hoping to bounce back from their frustrating 2-2 draw to Sevilla and bag the maximum points in the tricky encounter.

The match will, however, serve as a formality given that Valencia is already eliminated from the Champions League and are set to be relegated to the Europa League after gathering 9 points from the competition this season.

Marcelino charges have been involved in a lot of draw matches this season and Michy Batshuayi and the lads need to start converting more chances into goals. They’ve scored just four times in Europe which is certainly not enough for the place in the eighth-finals.

Man United head into the match buoyed by their 4-1 win over Fulham and more of the same will definitely please their manager.

Jose Mourinho charges also cannot be proud of their campaign, but they managed to earn their place among the top 16 teams. The Red Devils have managed two victories in the Champions League and they haven’t lost in the last five matches in all competitions.

The visitors have been playing pretty tight in the top European cup as they’ve allowed just two goals, contrary to their below par defensive performances in the Premier League. They’ve celebrated in both away matches in the current campaign.

Valencia will be counting on Santi Mina to find the goals upfront while Man United will be counting on Antoine Martial for the goals.

Head to head

Manchester United booked four wins, while they split points in the other five clashes.
