8th Dec 2020 | Champions League
All Aboard The Ole Rollercoaster
United have shown their full range over the course of 5 Champions League group matches and now it comes down to a trip to last season's semi-finalists.
There were 5 goals when Manchester United last met Leipzig in late October, but I think we can rule out a 5-0 victory here for either side. But back over 4.5 goals in the match at best odds of 15/4 with BetFair and hoover up some value.
United matches have produced 5+ goals on 6 occasions already this season, from 17 outings, and another 4 Red Devils matches have produced 4 goals. So on that basis, we are more than likely to go close here, at the very least.
Leipzig arrive off the back of a 3-4 victory in the Champions League followed by a 3-3 draw at Bayern at the weekend. They need to win here, so don’t expect the attacking intent to subside now.
As Solskjaer effectively admitted, his team only have one way to play. They can’t play for a cagey draw so expect an exciting final evening in Group H.
