Valencia vs Manchester United Predictions and Betting Tips: Champions League

Valencia vs Manchester United predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Champions League fixture. United are through to the last 16 and have an outside chance of topping the group if they win abs Juventus don’t.

Expert Tipster Verdict: The chances of Juventus not beating Young Boys are slim, couple that with the odds of Manchester United beating Valencia and you’ve got a pretty unlikely set of results. With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Valencia are already assured of a Europa League place and no more, this has turned into a bit of a dead rubber match.

Valencia vs Manchester United Predictions

With Valencia already secured in third spot and the UEFA Europa League, we have to consider the fact that manager Marcelino García Toral will make a few changes to his side ahead of their weekend La Liga fixture with Eibar. Jose Mourinho will want to try and win the group to avoid the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the last 16, but their chances are slim and they need help from the group whipping boys, Young Boys. For these reasons, these teams could play out a friendly draw meaning Manchester United finish in second spot in Champions League Group H.

Valencia vs Manchester United Betting Tips

The 1-0 Manchester United victory in their last home match ended Valencia’s hopes of qualifying the the latter stages and that night it was Marouane Fellaini who popped up with the winner in injury time. The Belgian has got some vital goals for Manchester United, especially in this competition. Despite them struggling for form this season, they have negotiated a tough Champions League group and can now look forward to the last 16.

A 4-1 win over Fulham at the weekend was the perfect warm-up for this clash and Romelu Lukaku got on the scoresheet for the second time in three matches. The Belgium striker has had his critics this season but he does pop up with goals and he’s the selection for an anytime goalscorer in tonight’s Valencia vs Manchester United predictions.

What are the best odds for Lukaku to score against Valencia tonight? 23/10 with Betway.

We’re already predicting a draw in this match and that can be backed up with a correct score bet. Valencia drew 1-1 with Sevilla in La Liga at the weekend and Man United had drawn their previous two matches before beating Fulham. The stats point to a draw tonight and with Jose Mourinho knowing it is unlikely they’ll top the group, and a Premier League fixture against Liverpool coming up at the weekend, his team selection might be different.

Their slow build-up play has been frustrating for United fans this season but with Valencia knowing they have nothing to play for, this could turn into a bit of a procession for both teams. Valencia have only seen nine goals in their five Champions League matches so far and United have only seen eight goals. It might be worth having a saver bet on the 0-0 draw here but our selection for a correct score prediction is 1-1.

What are the best odds for Valencia v Man United to end 1-1? 6/1 with Bet Victor.

Valencia vs Man United Stats

  • If Manchester United fail to score against Valencia, it will be the first time since 2008-09 against Villarreal that they have failed to score both home and away against a group stage opponent.
  • Valencia have lost four of their last six Champions League games at the Mestalla Stadium (W2), having not lost any of their previous nine games there before this run.
  • Manchester United’s 1-0 victory against Young Boys last time out marked the 17th occasion that José Mourinho has won by that exact scoreline in the Champions League – only Carlo Ancelotti (24) and Sir Alex Ferguson (21) have done so more often.
  • Valencia have failed to score in six of their last eight games in the Champions League, including last time out against Juventus (0-1).
  • Manchester United are looking to win all three of their away games in the group stages for the first time since doing so consecutively in 2009-10 & 2010-11.
  • Valencia have failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League in consecutive attempts for the very first time.
  • Valencia have received 19 yellow cards so far; the last team to receive 20 or more in the group stages was Zenit St Petersburg in 2015-16 (20).
  • Paul Pogba has been directly involved in 60% (3/5) of Manchester United’s away goals in the Champions League this season (two goals and one assist).

 

Valencia


Tonight’s hosts could be without the likes of Cristiano Piccini, Gabriel Paulista, Kevin Gameiro, and Jeison Murillo for this match and Jose Gaya is definitely missing through suspension. Los Che are having a tough season domestically and sit down in 15th place in La Liga. It won’t be long before their fans have the white hankies out again like they did for a certain Gary Neville!

 

Manchester United


Manchester United will be without Alexis Samchez and Victor Lindelof for this match through injury. Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial are both doubts and probably won’t be risked with Liverpool this weekend. We could see quite a few changes from Jose Mourinho as he continues to complain about the squad not being strong enough to compete.
