Manchester United welcome Juventus to Old Trafford in Group H for round three of the Champions League (CL). The teams sit in the pole positions in the group after two matches, and historically we are in for a close fight as the teams have five wins, two draws and five defeats in 12 previous H2H meetings.
United come into the match in poor form (W1, D4, L1 – all competitions), but have seen improvements recently, with a strong draw away at Chelsea (2-2) and a turnaround victory in their last home match (3-2).
So far, the ‘Red Devils’ have kept a clean sheet in both of their CL matches, a contrast to their league efforts so far, where they’ve conceded in five straight matches, 1.8 on average from those five.
