The champions of England, Manchester United, will host the German champions, Wolfsburg, in their first home match in the Champions League. Manchester United and Wolfsburg will be contesting for the top spot in Group B. Coach Sir Alex Ferguson will put his best team out to cement the authority of Group B.
At this stage of the competition, Manchester United usually grinds out their result rather than playing free flowing direct football as they are known for. Their heavy packed schedule and with some players coming back from injuries, Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown and Owen Hargreaves, will put Man United in a cautious mode and finding their pace in all tournaments. They put in the necessary work and win games even when they play bad. Manchester United will do just enough to get past Wolfsburg with Berbatov, Rooney, Giggs and Scholes paving their way in the starting lineup.
This will be Wolfsburg first match against an English opposition on English ground in the Champions League. The Germans have made a bright start to their debut in the Champions League by beating CSKA Moskva 3-0 at home in round 1. Wolfsburg coach Armin Veh saw his side beat Hannover 4-2 at home this weekend. This will set up a much needed confidence for his players to shine at Old Trafford. Former Newcastle player, Obafemi Martins is the old player in the Wolfsburg squad that has scored against Manchester United. He will hope that he will be part of the starting lineup on the night or otherwise Edin Dzeko and probably partner up with Brazilian Grafite.
Manchester United have not lost in 21 UEFA Champions matches and their last defeat at Old Trafford was back in February, 2005 when AC Milan visited them. United are favorites against Wolfsburg and they could send the Germans home empty handed. Have a look at Betsson as they are offering a Manchester United win at 1.40.
