United Defence The Key

Live on Skysports 2: Tue 19.45: Man United are just 1/3 (Betfred) to make the Champions League semis and will keep it tight on Tuesday.

It was almost the perfect away, European performance from Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last week, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side grabbing an early away goal and then going on to keep Chelsea at bay at the other end to put themselves firmly in the driving seat in terms of semi-final qualification.

United are now 1/3 with Betfred to reach the last four while Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 11/4 (Paddy Power) to turn things around at Old Trafford but it’s hard to see the hosts letting it slip on their own patch, where they are unbeaten this season.

United will be happy to keep things tight again and as they have only conceded twice in the Champions League this term, albeit on home soil both times, another low-scoring affair looks a distinct possibility.

Stan James’ 4/6 for it to produce fewer than 2.5 goals is a banker then and with goals set to be a premium, it would be no surprise if only one team managed to find the net, an outcome Coral chalk up at 13/10.

It’s up to Chelsea to take the game to their opponents as they need a goal but with Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic paired at the heart of the United defence, as they were a week ago, the Blues won’t find it easy to make the breakthrough, especially if Ancelotti persists with the misfiring Fernando Torres in attack.

A modest flutter on a goalless encounter at 8/1 with Totesport isn’t without appeal then or alternatively, there’s Coral’s 2/1 for there to be under 1.5 goals.

Recommended Bets:
Manchester United v Chelsea to finish 0-0 – 8/1 (Totesport)
