Match Preview

Manchester United

Manchester United have drawn their weekend match with Newcastle United, (1:1) and continues to perform poor. Second consecutive draw, preceded by two victories with the minimal 1:0 can’t be good. The difference between City and United remains 5 points, only because City did not manage to take the 3 points when visiting Anfield Sunday night. Carling Cup is not something Manchester United pays a lot of attention to, but it’s still a good tournament to test your players. Ferguson will most likely use the reserves that do not get a lot of playtime. Judging on the overall team condition, seems like United will win this match, but a lot of goals should not be expected.

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are currently in the Championship, taking 10th position with 26 points in 18 games. To reach this phase of the tournament, the team had to eliminate, a club which made an appearance last year against Manchester United, Crawley Town, the Premier League club, Wigan, Middlesbrough and the current leader in the Championship Southampton. Looking at the last 3 teams that Crystal Palace has beaten in Carling Cup, shows that United might face big resistance in the game on Wednesday.

Prediction

There’s a bit of history between both teams, when Crystal Palace used to play in Premier League. Here are the game on Old Trafford:

18/12/2004 Premier League Man Utd vs. Crystal Palace 5:2
10/11/2004 Carling Cup Man Utd vs. Crystal Palace 2:0
04/10/1997 Premier League Man Utd vs. Crystal Palace 2:0
19/11/1994 Premier League Man Utd vs. Crystal Palace 3:0

Four games, and four victories for Manchester United here. Despite United’s current shape, I believe that they will win this match. However I expect to be a game, somewhat similar to last season’s one against Crawley Town when the Red Devils won with just 1:0. Back United to win with 1:0 on the correct score market at 13/2 with bet365.

Overall I believe this match will see a few goals, maximum of 2, as in 2004, when Manchester United has beaten Crystal Palace here with 2:0. This seems like the safer yet rewarding option priced at 6/4 with bet365.
