      Analysis: Manchester United vs Sheffield United (09 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: January 06 2016, 19:02 »

      Manchester United and Sheffield United meet at Old Trafford, in a match for this stage of the FA Cup (3rd Round). There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 17‑04‑2007, the match ended with the final score: Manchester United (2‑0) Sheffield United. Sheffield United registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

      Analysis of Manchester United

      The home team plays its first match in this edition of the FA Cup with the intention of using the home advantage to get a positive result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. They come to this match after a home win against Swansea City by (2‑1). Manchester United has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 15 matches, and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Manchester United comes motivated for this match after the victory at home against Swansea, something that hadn’t happened for eight consecutive matches. In this match against Sheffield United, the coach Louis van Gaal will opt for a very offensive strategy in order to win a good result. The goal is to return the enthusiasm to their fans. Up front should be Rooney. The English returned to the goals soon after a long period of fasting. Rojo, Shaw and Antonio Valencia continue absents by injury. 

      Analysis of Sheffield United

      The away team comes to this stage of the FA Cup (3rd Round) after havinf played in the previous rounds against: Oldham Athletic and Worcester City. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 9 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses at their stadium, with 34 goals scored and 22 conceded. In their last match, for the League One, they got a home loss against Peterborough United by (2‑3). In the last 10 away matches Sheffield United has won 2, tied 5 and lost 3. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 16 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 14 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

      Sheffield United is in the third English division; however, has achieved very interesting results this season. Thus, it’s foreseeable that the coach Nigel Adkins will place on the field their best players and with a strategy based on counterattack, in order to exploit the defensive weaknesses of your opponent. It’s important to note that Billy Sharp is the best scorer of the visiting team with eleven goals scored. For this match the coach has available almost full squad. 

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be the existence of some goals. It’s expectable that Manchester United will have more initiative at the match because of the quality of their players; however, Sheffield United will risk enough on the counterattack, creating defensive difficulties to the home team. Thus, we believe that this will be a good match and with a few goals on the scoreboard.
