      Analysis: Manchester United vs PSV (25 November 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: November 23 2015, 10:52 »

      Manchester United and PSV meet at Old Trafford, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage).

      The head to head history favours PSV, since in the last 3 matches they register 2 wins and 1 loss. In the first half of this group stage PSV has beaten Manchester United at home by 2-1.

      Analysis of Man Utd

      After 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 1st position, with 7 points won. In the last match, they have won (1‑0) at home against CSKA Moskva, after in the previous round they have tied (1‑1) in an away match against CSKA Moskva. They come to this match after a away win against Watford by (1‑2). Manchester United has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times, but have turned the score around in 2.

      After a hard win against Watford for the Premier League, United is now focused on the Champions League. At home we expect a strong, offensive and dominating team. However, coach Louis van Gaal will not be able to count on Luke Shaw, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia and Anthony Martial, injured, and Wayne Rooney is in doubt.

      Analysis of PSV

      The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Wolfsburg by (2‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Wolfsburg by (2‑0). In their last match, for the Eredivisie, they got an away tie against Willem II by (2‑2). In the last 10 away matches PSV has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 26 of the last 27 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 22 out of 27 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 7 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 9 of them. In the last 12 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (46'‑60').

      In this decisive match, coach Phillip Cocu should use the usual 4-3-3 formation, with an offensive strategy, trying to take advantage of any counterattack opportunities, counting on the ability of Gastón Pereiro and Locadia, who are usually very strong in these types of play. It’s also important to notice Luuk de Jong, who is going through a great moment and has scored 16 already this season.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that Manchester United will win. Despite the absence of important players, they do have quality alternatives, also capable of deciding matches on their own, in individual plays. Moreover, United should try to get e good result to decide access to the next stage as soon as possible.
